In the training of over-parameterized model functions via gradient descent, sometimes the parameters do not change significantly and remain close to their initial values. This phenomenon is called lazy training, and motivates consideration of the linear approximation of the model function around the initial parameters. In the lazy regime, this linear approximation imitates the behavior of the parameterized function whose associated kernel, called the tangent kernel, specifies the training performance of the model. Lazy training is known to occur in the case of (classical) neural networks with large widths. In this paper, we show that the training of geometrically local parameterized quantum circuits enters the lazy regime for large numbers of qubits. More precisely, we prove bounds on the rate of changes of the parameters of such a geometrically local parameterized quantum circuit in the training process, and on the precision of the linear approximation of the associated quantum model function; both of these bounds tend to zero as the number of qubits grows. We support our analytic results with numerical simulations.
