In this paper, we investigate the convergence of the state of a quantum network to a consensus (symmetric) state. The state evolution of the quantum network with continuous-time swapping operators can be described by a Lindblad master equation, which also introduces an underlying interaction graph for the network. For a fixed quantum interaction graph, we prove that the state of a quantum network with continuous-time Markovian dynamics converges to a consensus state, with convergence rate given...[Show more]
