What is probability and stochastic process in quantum mechanics? To study the foundations of the stochastic process in quantum mechanics, the discrete time quantum walk (DTQW), which is a quantum analogue of the random walk, may be useful. This has recently been the hot research field, especially in quantum information science, and been experimentally realized. This workshop will bring the theoretical researchers in the DTQW. While this workshop is focused on the theoretical side, we also welcome experimentalists. We take the advantages of special opportunities to invite founders of DTQW. The organizers strongly encourage young researchers to actively join us to this workshop.
