Investigation of continuoustime quantum walk via spectral distribution associated with adjacency matrix
Abstract
Using the spectral distribution associated with the adjacency matrix of graphs, we introduce a new method of calculation of amplitudes of continuoustime quantum walk on some rather important graphs, such as line, cycle graph C {sub n}, complete graph K {sub n}, graph G {sub n}, finite path and some other finite and infinite graphs, where all are connected with orthogonal polynomials such as Hermite, Laguerre, Tchebichef, and other orthogonal polynomials. It is shown that using the spectral distribution, one can obtain the infinite time asymptotic behavior of amplitudes simply by using the method of stationary phase approximation (WKB approximation), where as an example, the method is applied to star, twodimensional comb lattices, infinite Hermite and Laguerre graphs. Also by using the Gauss quadrature formula one can approximate the infinite graphs with finite ones and vice versa, in order to derive large time asymptotic behavior by WKB method. Likewise, using this method, some new graphs are introduced, where their amplitudes are proportional to the product of amplitudes of some elementary graphs, even though the graphs themselves are not the same as the Cartesian product of their elementary graphs. Finally, by calculating the mean end to end distance of some infinitemore »

The continuous time random walk (CTRW) is a natural generalization of the Brownian random walk that allows the incorporation of waiting time distributions psi(t) and general jump distribution functions eta(x). There are two wellknown fluid limits of this model in the uncoupled case. For exponential decaying waiting times and Gaussian jump distribution functions the fluid limit leads to the diffusion equation. On the other hand, for algebraic decaying waiting times psi similar to t((1+beta)) and algebraic decaying jump distributions eta similar to x((1+alpha)) corresponding to Levy stable processes, the fluid limit leads to the fractional diffusion equation of order alphamore »

Determination of lateral size distribution of typeII ZnTe/ZnSe stacked submonolayer quantum dots via spectral analysis of optical signature of the AharanovBohm excitons
For submonolayer quantum dot (QD) based photonic devices, size and density of QDs are critical parameters, the probing of which requires indirect methods. We report the determination of lateral size distribution of typeII ZnTe/ZnSe stacked submonolayer QDs, based on spectral analysis of the optical signature of AharanovBohm (AB) excitons, complemented by photoluminescence studies, secondaryion mass spectroscopy, and numerical calculations. Numerical calculations are employed to determine the AB transition magnetic field as a function of the typeII QD radius. The study of four samples grown with different tellurium fluxes shows that the lateral size of QDs increases by just 50%, evenmore » 
Transport properties of the continuoustime random walk with a longtailed waitingtime density
The authors derive asymptotic properties of the propagator p(r, t) of a continuoustime random walk (CTRW) in which the waiting time density has the asymptotic form {psi}(t) {approximately} T{sup {alpha}}/t{sup {alpha}+1} when t >> T and 0 < {alpha} < 1. Several cases are considered; the main ones are those that assume that the variance of the displacement in a single step of the walk is finite. Under this assumption they consider both random walks with and without a bias. The principle results of their analysis is that one needs two forms to characterize p(r, t), depending on whether rmore » 
Transition from discrete to continuous timeofarrival distribution for a quantum particle
We show that the Kijowski distribution for time of arrivals in the entire real line is the limiting distribution of the timeofarrival distribution in a confining box as its length increases to infinity. The dynamics of the confined timeofarrival eigenfunctions is also numerically investigated and demonstrated that the eigenfunctions evolve to have point supports at the arrival point at their respective eigenvalues in the limit of arbitrarily large confining lengths, giving insight into the ideal physical content of the Kijowsky distribution.
