The quantum relative entropy is frequently used as a distance measure between two quantum states, and inequalities relating it to other distance measures are important mathematical tools in many areas of quantum information theory. We have derived many such inequalities in previous work. The present paper is a follow-up on this, and provides a sharp upper bound on the relative entropy in terms of the trace norm distance and of the smallest eigenvalues of both states concerned. The result…

We prove a lower bound on the relative entropy between two finite-dimensional states in terms of their entropy difference and the dimension of the underlying space. The inequality is tight in the

Upper continuity bound on the quantum quasi-relative entropy

An upper bound on the quasi-relative entropy in terms of the trace distance is provided for several types of the function, as well for any operator monotone decreasing function and mixed qubit states.

Upper and lower bounds on the introduced quantities are obtained in terms of partitioned trace distances and Uhlmann’s partial fidelities, which provide a kind of generalization of the well-known limits on the Shannon distinguishability.

Bounding generalized relative entropies: Nonasymptotic quantum speed limits.

By considering a general unitary channel, this work establishes a bound on the generalized relative entropies (Rényi and Tsallis) between the output and the input of the channel, and derives a family of quantum speed limits based on relative entropy.

Continuity of quantum entropic quantities via almost convexity

This work introduces the almost locally affine (ALAFF) method, which allows us to prove a great variety of continuity bounds for the derived entropic quantities and proves almost concavity for the Umegaki relative entropy and the BS-entropy.

Fano type quantum inequalities in terms of q-entropies

By the monotonicity property, the lower bound of Pinsker type in terms of the trace norm distance is obtained for the Tsallis relative q-entropy of order q = 1/2.

Relative Entropy Convergence for Depolarizing Channels

We study the convergence of states under continuous-time depolarizing channels with full rank fixed points in terms of the relative entropy. The optimal exponent of an upper bound on the relative

Tight continuity bounds for the quantum mutual information and for the Holevo quantity

A quantitative analysis of continuity of the quantum mutual information and of the Holevo quantity is presented and Fannes type and Winter type tight continuity bounds are obtained and applied to the system of finite number of quantum oscillators.

Quasi-factorization and multiplicative comparison of subalgebra-relative entropy

A quasi-factorization inequality is obtained, which compares the relative entropies to each of several subalgebraic restrictions with that to their intersection, and quasifactorization is applied to uncertainty-like relations and to conditional expectations arising from graphs.

Comparisons between quantum state distinguishability measures

This work provides a compendium of inequalities between several quantum state distinguishability measures that consist of the sharpest possible upper and lower bounds in terms of another measure.



The proper formula for relative entropy and its asymptotics in quantum probability

Umegaki's relative entropyS(ω,ϕ)=TrDω(logDω−logDϕ) (of states ω and ϕ with density operatorsDω andDϕ, respectively) is shown to be an asymptotic exponent considered from the quantum hypothesis

Regularization of Quantum Relative Entropy in Finite Dimensions and Application to Entropy Production

The fundamental concept of relative entropy is extended to a functional that is regular-valued also on arbitrary pairs of nonfaithful states of open quantum systems. This regularized version

Strong converse and Stein's lemma in quantum hypothesis testing

A new inequality is shown between the errors of the first kind and the second kind, which complements the result of Hiai and Petz (1991) to establish the quantum version of Stein's lemma and yields the strong converse in quantum hypothesis testing.

On the quantification of entanglement in infinite-dimensional quantum systems

It is shown that the set of entangled states is still trace-norm dense in state space, even under the constraint of a finite mean energy, as well as some asymptotic continuity properties.

Quantifying Entanglement

We have witnessed great advances in quantum information theory in recent years. There are two distinct directions in which progress is currently being made: quantum computation and error correction

General properties of entropy

This paper discusses properties of entropy, as well as related concepts such as relative entropy, skew entropy, dynamical entropy, etc, in detail with reference to their implications in statistical mechanics, to get a glimpse of systems with infinitely many degrees of freedom.

It is shown that the capacity of a classical-quantum channel with arbitrary (possibly mixed) states equals the maximum of the entropy bound with respect to all a priori distributions. This completes
