## Abstract

Consider a sequence of finite regular graphs converging, in the sense of Benjamini–Schramm, to the infinite regular tree. We study the induced quantum graphs with equilateral edge lengths, Kirchhoff conditions (possibly with a non-zero coupling constant α) and a symmetric potential U on the edges. We show that in the spectral regions where the infinite quantum tree has absolutely continuous spectrum, the eigenfunctions of the converging quantum graphs satisfy a quantum ergodicity theorem. In case α = 0 and U = 0, the limit measure is the uniform measure on the edges. In general, it has an explicit C^{1} density. We finally prove a stronger quantum ergodicity theorem involving integral operators, the purpose of which is to study eigenfunction correlations.
