Surprisingly, the natural looking random walk leading to Brownian motion occurs to be often biased in a very subtle way: emphasizing some possibilities by only approximating maximal uncertainty principle. A new philosophy of stochastic modelling has been recently introduced, in which we use the only maximizing entropy choice of transition probabilities instead. Local behaviour of both approaches is similar, but they usually lead to completely different global situations. In contrast to Brownian… 

Topological solitons of ellipsoid field-particle menagerie correspondence

Universal formalism of QFT operates on abstract entities like point particles, not asking about their spatial structures, dynamics behind processes like photon production. Topological soltions,

A Novel Algorithm of Quantum Random Walk in Server Traffic Control and Task Scheduling

A quantum random walk optimization model and algorithm in network cluster server traffic control and task scheduling is proposed and its validity and rationality are proved by the experiment of analog and simulation.

Physics based supervised and unsupervised learning of graph structure

This dissertation proposes the use of physical or natural phenomenon to understand graph structure, and designs a novel method for data clustering using Gauss law for charge distributions applied to discrete graphs.

Multi‐Scale Kernels Using Random Walks

A unified view of popular embeddings and distance metrics while recovering intuitive probabilistic interpretations on discrete surface meshes is presented.

Maximal Entropy Random Walk for Region-Based Visual Saliency

This paper adopts a novel mathematical model, namely, the maximal entropy random walk (MERW) to measure saliency, and establishes a generic framework for saliency detection based on the MERW model based on graph representation.

The research program of Stochastic Deformation (with a view toward Geometric Mechanics)

We give an overview of a program of Stochastic Deformation of Classical Mechanics and the Calculus of Variations, strongly inspired by the quantization method.

Dynamic Network Reconfiguration for Entropy Maximization using Deep Reinforcement Learning

The general ability of the proposed method to obtain better entropy gains than random rewiring on synthetic and real-world graphs while being computationally inexpensive is demonstrated, as well as being able to generalize to larger graphs than those seen during training.

Localization of the maximal entropy random walk.

It is shown that the stationary probability of finding a particle performing maximal entropy random walk localizes in the largest nearly spherical region of the lattice which is free of defects.

The various facets of random walk entropy

We review various features of the statistics of random paths on graphs. The relationship between path statistics and Quantum Mechanics (QM) leads to two canonical ways of defining random walk on a

Four-dimensional understanding of quantum mechanics

In this paper I will try to convince that quantum mechanics does not have to lead to indeterminism, but is just a natural consequence of four-dimensional nature of our world - that for example

Derivation of the Schrodinger equation from Newtonian mechanics

We examine the hypothesis that every particle of mass $m$ is subject to a Brownian motion with diffusion coefficient $\frac{\ensuremath{\hbar}}{2m}$ and no friction. The influence of an external

Model for Topological Fermions

Abstract. We introduce a model designed to describe charged particles as stable topological solitons of a field with values on the internal space S3. These solitons behave like particles with

Unpredictable tunneling of a classical wave-particle association.

This work investigates the motion of a walker when it collides with barriers of various thicknesses and shows that this wave-particle association has a nonlocality sufficient to generate a quantumlike tunneling at a macroscopic scale.

It will be shown that the method of encoding information in valuations of discrete lattice with some translational invariant constrains in asymptotically optimal way can reach the optimum for one-dimensional models using maximal entropy random walk.

It is pointed out that one of the main effects of correlation phenomena in d- and f-bands is to give rise to behaviour characteristic of the atomic or Heitler-London model. To investigate this

Single-particle diffraction and interference at a macroscopic scale.

A droplet bouncing on a vertically vibrated bath can become coupled to the surface wave it generates and become a "walker" moving at constant velocity on the interface, and diffraction or interference patterns are recovered in the histogram of the deviations of many successive walkers.
