geometric conceptions of groups (and walks of graphs from groups); Heisenberg group


In Turing’s case, his ei=(-1)  or ei=(+1) are ei=(-1…-d)  or ei=(+1…+d) – since he is thinking in qudits rather than qubits.

The Heisenburg group, properly explained, also makes clear how metrics can differ – by generating set choice (and therefore degree of the graph).
