The tomographic picture of quantum mechanics has brought the description of quantum states closer to that of classical probability and statistics. On the other hand, the geometrical formulation of quantum mechanics introduces a metric tensor and a symplectic tensor (Hermitian tensor) on the space of pure states. By putting these two aspects together, we show that the Fisher information metric, both classical and quantum, can be described by means of the Hermitian tensor on the manifold of pure… Expand
From Geometric Quantum Mechanics to Quantum Information
We consider the geometrization of quantum mechanics. We then focus on the pull-back of the Fubini-Study metric tensor field from the projective Hibert space to the orbits of the local unitary groups.Expand
Aspects of Geodesical Motion with Fisher-Rao Metric: Classical and Quantum
It is shown that the end points of geodesics in the classical setting coincide with the probability distributions that minimise Shannon's Entropy, i.e. with distributions of zero dispersion. Expand

Quantum Information in Geometric Quantum Mechanics

The Volume of Two-Qubit States by Information Geometry
This work determines the volume of the set of two-qubit states with maximally disordered subsystems and shows that the usage of the classical Fisher metric on phase space probability representation of quantum states gives the same qualitative results with respect to different versions of the quantum Fisher metric.

The volume of Gaussian states by information geometry
We formulate the problem of determining the volume of the set of Gaussian physical states in the framework of information geometry. This is done by considering phase space probability distributionsExpand
Convex ordering and quantification of quantumness
The characterization of physical systems requires a comprehensive understanding of quantum effects. One aspect is a proper quantification of the strength of such quantum phenomena. Here, a generalExpand

Geometrical description of quantum mechanics—transformations and dynamics
In this paper, we review a proposed geometrical formulation of quantum mechanics. We argue that this geometrization makes available mathematical methods from classical mechanics to the quantumExpand
Remarks on the GNS Representation and the Geometry of Quantum States
It turns out that the GNS representation provides not only symplectic but even Hermitian realization of a 'quantum Poisson algebra' in the standard non-relativistic quantum mechanics. Expand

Classical tensors from quantum states
The embedding of a manifold M into a Hilbert-space ℍ induces, via the pull-back, a tensor field on M out of the Hermitian tensor on ℍ. We propose a general procedure to compute these tensors inExpand
