**Quantum Walks: A Comprehensive Review**

by Salvador E. Venegas-Andraca

**Publisher**: arXiv 2012**Number of pages**: 88

**Description**:

Quantum walks, the quantum mechanical counterpart of classical random walks, is an advanced tool for building quantum algorithms that has been recently shown to constitute a universal model of quantum computation. In this paper we review theoretical advances on the foundations of both discrete- and continuous-time quantum walks, together with the role that randomness plays in quantum walks.
