The spectra of the unitary marix of a 2-tessellable staggered quantum walk on a graphJan 28 2017Recently, the staggered quantum walk (SQW) on a graph is discussed as a generalization of coined quantum walks on graphs and Szegedy walks. We present a formula for the time evolution matrix of a 2-tessellable SQW on a graph, and so directly give its ... More

Efficient computation of higher order cumulant tensorsJan 19 2017Apr 10 2018In this paper, we introduce a novel algorithm for calculating arbitrary order cumulants of multidimensional data. Since the $d^\text{th}$ order cumulant can be presented in the form of an $d$-dimensional tensor, the algorithm is presented using tensor ... More

Some Connections Between Cycles and Permutations that Fix a Set and Touchard Polynomials and Covers of MultisetsJan 17 2017Jan 20 2017We present a new proof of a fundamental result concerning cycles of random permutations which gives some intuition for the connection between Touchard polynomials and the Poisson distribution. We also introduce a rather novel permutation statistic and ... More
