We consider a d-dimensional random quantum walk with site-dependent random coin operators. The corresponding transition coefficients are characterized by deterministic amplitudes times independent identically distributed site-dependent random phases. When the deterministic transition amplitudes are close enough to those of a quantum walk which forbids propagation, we prove that dynamical localization holds for almost all random phases. This instance of Anderson localization implies that all quantum mechanical moments of the position operator are uniformly bounded in time and that spectral localization holds, almost surely.

    We introduce a diffusion model for energetically inhomogeneous systems. A random walker moves on a spin-S Ising configuration, which generates the energy landscape on the lattice through the nearest-neighbors interaction. The underlying energetic environment is also made dynamic by properly...

    A system of particles is studied in which the stochastic processes are one-particle type-change (or one-particle diffusion) and multi-particle annihilation. It is shown that, if the annihilation rate tends to zero but the initial values of the average number of the particles tend to infinity, so...

    It is nowadays acknowledged that the coupled cluster method (CCM) provides one of the most powerful and most widely used of all ab initio techniques of microscopic quantum many-body theory. It has been applied to a broad range of both finite and extended physical systems defined on a spatial...
