Contextual advantage for state-dependent cloning

- PhilosophyQuantum
- 2020

This work derives a noise-robust noncontextuality inequality whose violation by quantum theory not only implies a quantum advantage for the task of state-dependent cloning relative to noncontextual models, but also provides an experimental witness of non contextuality.

Contextuality for preparations, transformations, and unsharp measurements

- Philosophy

The Bell-Kochen-Specker theorem establishes the impossibility of a noncontextual hidden variable model of quantum theory, or equivalently, that quantum theory is contextual. In this paper, an…

State independent contextuality advances one-way communication

- Computer ScienceNew Journal of Physics
- 2019

This article presents a family of distributed computing tasks pertaining to every logical proof of Kochen–Specker contextuality in two different one-way communication scenarios and shows that quantum communication comprised of every KS set of vectors outperforms classical communication and perfectly accomplish the task in both the aforementioned scenarios.

This work analytically obtain classical (or equivalently preparation noncontextual) bounds on the success probability for these tasks for arbitrary d and provides for operational depiction of preparation contextuality of the ontic description underlying mixed higher dimensional quantum systems.

Preparation contextuality powers parity-oblivious multiplexing.

- Computer SciencePhysical review letters
- 2009

It is demonstrated that a particular two-party information-processing task, "parity-oblivious multiplexing," is powered by contextuality in the sense that there is a limit to how well any theory described by a noncontextual hidden variable model can perform.

Hypergraph framework for irreducible noncontextuality inequalities from logical proofs of the Kochen-Specker theorem

- Computer ScienceQuantum
- 2020

This work introduces a hypergraph framework to obtain noise-robust witnesses of contextuality from such scenarios, and relies on a single hypergraph invariant, defined in R. Kunjwal, Quantum 3, 184 (2019), that appears in the authors' contextuality witnesses, namely, the weighted max-predictability.

In this letter we generalize Spekkens’ notion of measurement non-contextuality (NC). We show that any non-contextual ontological model based on this notion of contextuality fails to explain the…
