Location Probabilities of the 2D Hadamard Quantum Random Walk

Location Probabilities of the 2D Hadamard Quantum Random Walk

Please note special day (Tuesday) and location.  My talk will focus on the behavior of the 2D Hadamard Quantum Random Walk wavefunction near the boundary of the region that it visits. The location probabilities there are given by oscillatory integrals of Airy type where smooth and quadratic saddle points coalesce.
