In science:
When asked whether decoherence would spoil a quantum walk, I thought: silly question, but, somehow that spiky quantum distribution has to turn into the smooth classical one: I wonder how it does it? The answer is in ﬁgure 3: down come the spikes and up goes the central peak as the decoherence rate is turned up.
A random walk approach to quantum algorithms
Let us discuss the canonical and silly ﬁltrations in some more detail.
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
The silly ﬁltrations condition can be stated in several equivalent forms as a condition on a full subcategory M closed under extensions in a triangulated category D .
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
This functor is an equivalence of triangulated categories if and only if the t-structure is of the derived type, i. e., the silly ﬁltrations, or Ext decomposition, condition holds.
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
Notice the difference between our silly ﬁltrations and the “weight structures” of Bondarko : the orthogonality condition from the deﬁnition in is not assumed, and does not hold, in the situations considered in this paper.
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
Indeed, the question of existence of silly ﬁltrations on ob jects of a triangulated category with respect to a generating full subcategory (closed under extensions) that we are interested in here becomes trivial when the orthogonality, i. e., the vanishing of HomD (X, Y [n]) for X, Y ∈ M and n > 1, is assumed.
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
Another name for the silly ﬁltration conjecture is the “K(π, 1)-conjecture” of Bloch and Kriz .
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
It is not always possible to express the silly ﬁltrations condition in terms of the algebra of higher homomorphisms between the simple ob jects; when it is, it typically turns out to be a Koszulity [7, 34] condition.
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
Milnor–Bloch–Kato conjecture together with the silly ﬁltrations condition for the exact category of mixed Tate motives.
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
In particular, we obtain a Koszulity-based suﬃcient condition for existence of silly ﬁltrations with respect to an exact subcategory of a triangulated category.
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
The formalism of silly ﬁltrations is presented in Appendix B, and the K(π, 1)-conjecture of Bloch and Kriz is discussed in Appendix C.
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
Iterated extensions of this form generalize silly ﬁltrations on complexes; thus the above conjecture can be called the sil ly ﬁltration conjecture for Artin–Tate motives.
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
Thus the silly ﬁltration conjecture provides a motivic interpretation of the Koszulity conjecture from .
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
Then the silly ﬁltration conjecture for Artin–Tate motives holds for the ﬁeld extension M/K ′ provided that it holds for the extension M/K with the same coeﬃcients k .
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
Thus the main our achievements in this paper are the connection of the silly ﬁltration conjecture with Koszulity conjectures established in 9.5 and the elementary construction of the category of mixed Artin–Tate motives with ﬁnite coeﬃcients obtained in 9.3.
