Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Quantum Cellular Automata (QCAs) and Quantum Walks (QWs) are a versatile platform for various scopes. On one hand, they have been used for empowering quantum algorithms, such as database searches, or graph isomorphisms. On the other hand, QCAs and QWs are among the most promising quantum simulators, with possible realizations in a variety of physical systems, such as nuclear magnetic resonance, trapped ions, integrated photonics, and bulk optics. From a fundamental standpoint, QCAs and QWs are outstanding candidates to understand quantum dynamics from an information-theoretic perspective. In particular, they are the ideal framework for studying the principles of locality and causality of the physical laws. A distinctive feature of the research activity in Quantum Cellular Automata and Quantum Walks is its multidisciplinary nature, linking quantum mechanics, many body physics, particle physics, computer science and discrete mathematics. The goal of this Special Issue is to collect state-of-the-art results on subjects from experiments, theory and simulations and to reveal the role of QCAs and QWs in other related fields.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Condensed Matter is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
