Anderson localization for quasi-periodic CMV matrices and quantum walks
Wang, Fengpeng; Damanik, David
We consider CMV matrices, both standard and extended, with analytic quasi-periodic Verblunsky coefficients and prove Anderson localization in the regime of positive Lyapunov exponents. This establishes the CMV analog of a result Bourgain and Goldstein proved for discrete one-dimensional Schrödinger operators. We also prove a similar result for quantum walks on the integer lattice with suitable analytic quasi-periodic coins.
