We present an algorithm to design networks that feature pretty good state transfer (PGST), which is of interest for high-fidelity transfer of information in quantum computing. Realizations of PGST networks have so far mostly relied either on very special network geometries or imposed conditions such as transcendental on-site potentials. However, it was recently shown that PGST generally arises when a network's eigenvectors and the factors ${P}_{\ifmmode\pm\else\textpm\fi{}}$ of its…

A bi-directional approach to comparing the modular structure of networks
A new method to compare the modular structure of a pair of node-aligned networks that takes into account the network structure, specifically the strength of the connections within and between communities, and can capture differences between networks with similar partitions but where one of them might have a more defined or robust community structure.
On symmetries of a matrix and its isospectral reduction
The analysis of diagonalizable matrices in terms of their so-called isospectral reduction represents a versatile approach to the underlying eigenvalue problem. Starting from a symmetry of the


Pretty Good State Transfer on Circulant Graphs
It is proved that union (edge disjoint) of an integral circulant graph with a cycle, each on $2^k$ $(k\geq 3)$ vertices, admits pretty good state transfer and the complement of such union also admits prettyGood state transfer.
Pretty good quantum state transfer in symmetric spin networks via magnetic field
It is shown that if a network admits an involution that fixes at least one node or at leastOne link, then there exists a choice of potential on the nodes of the network for which the authors get pretty good state transfer between symmetric pairs of nodes.
Number-theoretic nature of communication in quantum spin systems.
This work determines the exact number of qubits in unmodulated chains (with an XY Hamiltonian) that permit transfer with a fidelity arbitrarily close to 1, a phenomenon called pretty good state transfer and highlights the potential of quantum spin system dynamics for reinterpreting questions about the arithmetic structure of integers and primality.

Quantum Network Transfer and Storage with Compact Localized States Induced by Local Symmetries.
A method to equip any network featuring static perfect state transfer of single-site excitations with compact localized states, thus increasing the storage ability of these networks, and it is shown that these compact localization states can likewise be perfectly transferred through the corresponding network by suitable, time-dependent modifications.
Isospectral compression and other useful isospectral transformations of dynamical networks.
Using this theory of isospectral network transformations, it is possible to establish whether a network, modeled as a dynamical system, has a globally attracting fixed point (is strongly synchronizing).
Pretty Good State Transfer in Qubit Chains - The Heisenberg Hamiltonian
Pretty good state transfer in networks of qubits occurs when a continuous-time quantum walk allows the transmission of a qubit state from one node of the network to another, with fidelity arbitrarily
Perfect Transfer of Arbitrary States in Quantum Spin Networks
We propose a class of qubit networks that admit perfect state transfer of any two-dimensional quantum state in a fixed period of time. We further show that such networks can distribute arbitrary
