Interacting quantum walk on a graph

Abstract : We introduce an elementary quantum system consisting of a set of spins on a graph and a particle hopping between its nodes. The quantum state is build sequentially, applying a unitary transformation that couples neighboring spins and, at each node, couples the local spin with the particle. We observe the relaxation of the system toward a stationary paramagnetic or ferromagnetic state and demonstrate that it is related to eigenvectors thermalization and random matrix statistics. The relation between these macroscopic properties and interaction generated entanglement is discussed.
