Probabilistic cellular automaton for quantum particle in a potential

  title={Probabilistic cellular automaton for quantum particle in a potential},
  author={C. Wetterich},
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… 



Cellular automaton for spinor gravity in four dimensions

Certain fermionic quantum field theories are equivalent to probabilistic cellular automata, with fermionic occupation numbers associated to bits. We construct an automaton that represents a discrete

Fermion picture for cellular automata

How do cellular automata behave in the limit of a very large number of cells? Is there a continuum limit with simple properties? We attack this problem by mapping certain classes of automata to

Quantum particles from classical statistics

Quantum particles and classical particles are described in a common setting of classical statistical physics. The property of a particle being “classical” or “quantum” ceases to be a basic conceptual

Quantumness of discrete Hamiltonian cellular automata

We summarize a recent study of discrete (integer-valued) Hamiltonian cellular automata (CA) showing that their dynamics can only be consistently defined, if it is linear in the same sense as unitary

Statistical mechanics of cellular automata

Analysis is given of ''elementary'' cellular automata consisting of a sequence of sites with values 0 or 1 on a line, with each site evolving deterministically in discrete time steps according to p definite rules involving the values of its nearest neighbors.

Space-Time Approach to Non-Relativistic Quantum Mechanics

Non-relativistic quantum mechanics is formulated here in a different way. It is, however, mathematically equivalent to the familiar formulation. In quantum mechanics the probability of an event which
