Fractional revival on noncospectral vertices
Abstract
Perfect state transfer and fractional revival can be used to move information between pairs of vertices in a quantum network. While perfect state transfer has received a lot of attention, fractional revival is newer and less studied. One problem is to determine the differences between perfect state transfer and fractional revival. If perfect state transfer occurs between two vertices in a graph, the vertices must be cospectral. Further if there is perfect state transfer between vertices $a$ and $b$ in a graph, there cannot be perfect state transfer from $a$ to any other vertex. No examples of unweighted graphs with fractional revival between noncospectral vertices were known; here we give an infinite family of such graphs. No examples of unweighted graphs where the pairs involved in fractional revival overlapped were known; we give examples of such graphs as well.
