On quantum iterated function systems

Arkadiusz Jadczyk
From the journal Open Physics


A Quantum Iterated Function System on a complex projective space is defined through a family of linear operators on a complex Hilbert space. The operators define both the maps and their probabilities by one algebraic formula. Examples with conformal maps (relativistic boosts) on the Bloch sphere are discussed.
