The purpose of this paper is to exhibit a quantum network phenomenon—the anti-core—that goes against the classical network concept of congestion core. Classical networks idealized as infinite, Gromov hyperbolic spaces with least-cost path routing (and subject to a technical condition on the Gromov boundary) have a congestion core, defined as a subnetwork that routing paths have a high probability of visiting. Here, we consider quantum networks, more specifically spin chains, define the so-called maximum excitation transfer probability p max (i,j) between spin i and spin j and show that the central spin has among all other spins the lowest probability of being excited or transmitting its excitation. The anti-core is singled out by analytical formulas for p max (i,j) , revealing the number theoretic properties of quantum chains. By engineering the chain, we further show that this probability can be made vanishingly small.
