# Probabilistic cellular automaton for quantum particle in a potential

@inproceedings{Wetterich2022ProbabilisticCA, title={Probabilistic cellular automaton for quantum particle in a potential}, author={C. Wetterich}, year={2022} }

We propose that a quantum particle in a potential in one space dimension can be described by a probabilistic cellular automaton. While the simple updating rule of the automaton is deterministic, the probabilistic description is introduced by a probability distribution over initial conditions. The proposed automaton involves right- and left-movers, jumping from one cell to a neighboring one. They change their direction of motion at each randomly distributed disorder or scattering point. The…
