Here is a discrete version of the Feynman-Kac formula:
Definition. The Schrodinger equation with discrete time is defined as
i(ut+e -ut) = eLut ,
where e > 0 is fixed. We get the evolution
ut+ne = (1 - ieL)nut

we can define exp(/7 V) as the product Uti V([ycfw_i)Mi + !)]) Then
(Lnu)(0) = E[exp(/ V)u(7(n)]
which is formally the Feynman-Kac formula.
