Abstract: We establish strong ballistic transport for a family of discrete quasiperiodic Schrodinger operators as a consequence of exponential dynamical localization for the dual family. The latter has been, essentially, shown by Jitomirskaya and Kruger in the one-frequency setting and by Ge--You--Zhou in the multi-frequency case. In both regimes, we obtain strong convergence of $\frac{1}{T}X(T)$ to the asymptotic velocity operator $Q$, which improves recent perturbative results by Zhao and provides the strongest known form of ballistic motion. In the one-frequency setting, this approach allows to treat Diophantine frequencies non-perturbatively and also consider the weakly Liouville case.

The proof is based on the duality method. Originally, localization for the dual model allows to obtain ballistic transport in expectation. Combined with dynamical localization bounds, the improved convergence allows to replace ``in expectation’’ by ``almost surely’'.
