Project Title:
Quantum Random Walker on Networks
Supervisor:SZETO Kwok Yip
Project Description:Basic quantum mechanical calculations is used to describe random walker on network. First we learn how to compute the probability of finding the random walker at position x on a line after n steps in time. We then explore the situation when the space on which the walker can explore is a network. The objective is to compare the behavior of the walker in a quantum mechanical world with one in a classical world, on various interesting networks.
