MC 1: Graph Theory and Quantum Walks

Gabriel Coutinho, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, UFMG, Brazil
Chrystal Guo, Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing
Abstract: The study of quantum walks is a relatively new field with relations to Graph Isomorphism, quantum search algorithms and implementation of gate-based quantum algorithms. It is an area which has seen many successful applications of methods in linear algebra and graph theory, especially eigenvalue techniques in graphs. In this mini-course, we will cover basic definitions and properties of discrete and continuous time quantum walks on graphs. In the first lecture, we will talk about state transfer in graphs. In the second lecture, we will talk about the average mixing matrix which would be the analogue of a stationary distribution of a random walk. In the third, we will present the well-known Grover search algorithm as a quantum walk on a graph. In the last lecture, we will discuss many graph invariants given by quantum walks, some of which have inspired possible Graph Isomorphism algorithms. We will not assume any prior knowledge of quantum physics.
