# Quantum and classical diffusion on small-world networks

@article{Kim2003QuantumAC, title={Quantum and classical diffusion on small-world networks}, author={Beom Jun Kim and Hyunsuk Hong and M.Y. Choi}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2003}, volume={68}, pages={014304} }

We study numerically quantum diffusion of a particle on small-world networks by integrating the time-dependent Schrodinger equation with a localized initial state. The participation ratio, which corresponds to the number of visited sites in the case of classical diffusion, as a function of time is measured and the corresponding diffusion time, τ is computed. In a local regular network, i.e., in the network with the rewiring probability p=0, the diffusion time depends on the network size N as…

We study the time-reversal dynamics of a tight-binding electron in the Watts-Strogatz (WS) small-world networks. The localized initial wave packet at time t = 0 diffuses as time proceeds until the…

Conventional wisdom is that the power-law degree sequence has a profound impact on diverse dynamical processes taking place on scale-free networks. Here we show that power-law degree distribution…

### Continuous-time quantum walk on an extended star graph: Disorder-enhanced trapping process.

- PhysicsPhysical review. E
- 2020

The results reveal that the disorder drastically improves the excitonic absorption that becomes complete, and the occurrence of an optimal disorder for which the absorption time is strongly minimized, a surprising effect that originates in a disorder-induced restructuring process of the exciton eigenstates.

### Diffusion on a heptagonal lattice.

- MathematicsPhysical review. E, Statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics
- 2008

The diffusion phenomena on the negatively curved surface made up of congruent heptagons makes the boundary increase exponentially with the distance from the center, and hence the displacement of a classical random walker increases linearly in time.

We study the effect of small decoherence in continuous-time quantum walks on long-range interacting cycles, which are constructed by connecting all the two nodes of distance m on the cycle graph. In…
