A scheme to study the excitation and propagation of spin waves in an array of atomic spinor Bose-Einstein condensates confined or created in an optical lattice is proposed. The Bose statistics in each lattice site makes the atoms behave like a spin magnet. Such spin magnet arrays not only exhibit fascinating spin dynamics, but also may find potential applications in quantum information and computation.
