This paper describes the family of quantum protocols. The basic protocols are naturally organized into mutually dual hierarchies. A noiseless qubit channel, noiseless classical bit channel and pure ebit (EPR pair) reflect their classical-quantum and dynamic-static nature. In addition to teleportation (TP) and super-dense coding (SD), third noiseless resource inequality (RI), "entanglement distribution" (ED) are implemented through the qubit channel. Proving the existence of protocols… Expand
Properties of the Quantum Channel

The Capacity of a Quantum Channel for Simultaneous Transmission of Classical and Quantum Information
An expression is derived characterizing the set of admissible rate pairs for simultaneous transmission of classical and quantum information over a given quantum channel, generalizing both theExpand
Entanglement generation with a quantum channel and a shared state
The channel-state coding protocol paves the way for formulatingEntanglement-assisted quantum error-correcting codes that are robust to noise in shared entanglement and leads to a Smith-Yard superactivation, where it can generate entanglements using a zero-capacity erasure channel and a non-distillable bound entangled state.

Oblivious transfer and quantum channels as communication resources
We show that from a communication-complexity perspective, the primitive called oblivious transfer—which was introduced in a cryptographic context—can be seen as the classical analogue to a quantumExpand

Alternative proofs of the result that a noiseless qubit channel has identification capacity 2 are given and capacity formulas for various quantum feedback channels are applied: passive classical feedback for quantum-classical channels, a feedback model for classical-quantum channels, and "coherent feedback" for general channels.

Entanglement-Assisted Communication of Classical and Quantum Information
The main result is a capacity theorem that gives a 3-D achievable rate region that justifies the need for simultaneous coding of classical and quantum information over an EAQ channel. Expand
This work considers communication between two parties using a bipartite quantum operation, which constitutes the most general quantum mechanical model of two-party communication, and gives inner and outer bounds on the achievable rate region that generalize classical results due to Shannon. Expand

A new protocol for quantum broadcast channels based on the fully quantum Slepian-Wolf protocol is presented. The protocol yields an achievable rate region for entanglement-assisted transmission ofExpand


Classical capacity of a noiseless quantum channel assisted by noisy entanglement
The general formula for the capacity of a noiseless quantum channel assisted by an arbitrary amount of noisy entanglement is derived and it is shown that bound entangled states cannot increase the capacity. Expand

We define coherent communication in terms of a simple primitive, show it is equivalent to the ability to send a classical message with a unitary or isometric operation, and use it to relate otherExpand
Capacity of the noisy quantum channel
An upper limit is given to the amount of quantum information that can be transmitted reliably down a noisy, decoherent quantum channel. A class of quantum error-correcting codes is presented thatExpand
Entanglement-assisted capacity of a quantum channel and the reverse Shannon theorem
In the classical analog of entanglement-assisted communication - communication over a discrete memoryless channel (DMC) between parties who share prior random information - one parameter is sufficient, i.e., that in the presence of prior shared random information, all DMCs of equal capacity can simulate one another with unit asymptotic efficiency.
