In news:

This hour of Radiolab, we set out in search of order and balance in the world around us, and ask how symmetry shapes our very existence - from the origins of the universe, to what we see when we look in the mirror.

In science:

This resembles T-duality and Mirror symmetry in the sense that two different string theories on different backgrounds define the same theory.

Previous work has shown that the pseudo-random algorithm applied to a one-species QCA chain, such that all qubits undergo the same rotations, yields operators with eigenvalue and eigenvector distributions appropriate for CUE-type operators with mirror symmetries .
Pseudo-random operators of the circular ensembles
Using this form of Z ′ , pseudo-random symplectic operators (with mirror symmetry if all coupling constants are equal) can be implemented on a one-specie QCA if there are an odd number of qubits.
Pseudo-random operators of the circular ensembles
However, the one-specie QCA operator distributions deviate from the random distributions due to mirror symmetry.
