We show there is a natural connection between Latin squares and commutative sets of monomials defining geometric structures in finite phase-space of prime power dimensions. A complete set of such monomials defines a mutually unbiased basis (MUB) and may be associated with a complete set of mutually orthogonal Latin squares (MOLS). We translate some possible operations on the monomial sets into isomorphisms of Latin squares, and find a general form of permutations that map between Latin squares… Expand

On the connection between mutually unbiased bases and orthogonal Latin squares
We offer a piece of evidence that the problems of finding the number of mutually unbiased bases (MUB) and mutually orthogonal Latin squares (MOLS) might not be equivalent. We study a particularExpand

Multicomplementary operators via finite Fourier transform
A complete set of d + 1 mutually unbiased bases exists in a Hilbert space of dimension d, whenever d is a power of a prime. We discuss a simple construction of d + 1 disjoint classes (each one havingExpand
Mutually orthogonal Latin squares and mutually unbiased bases in dimensions of odd prime power
A simple algebraic construction of MOLS is given from two known constructions of MUBs in the odd prime power case. Expand
Quantum Measurements and Finite Geometry
A complete set of mutually unbiased bases for a Hilbert space of dimension N is analogous in some respects to a certain finite geometric structure, namely, an affine plane. Another kind of quantumExpand
New construction of mutually unbiased bases in square dimensions
The construction combines the design-theoretic objects (s, k)-nets and generalized Hadamard matrices of size s to show that k = w + 2 mutually unbiased bases can be constructed in any square dimension d = s2 provided that there are w mutually orthogonal Latin squares of order s. Expand
A New Proof for the Existence of Mutually Unbiased Bases
A constructive proof of the existence of mutually biased bases for dimensions that are powers of primes is presented and it is proved that in any dimension d the number of mutually unbiased bases is at most d+1. Expand
Weighted complex projective 2-designs from bases : Optimal state determination by orthogonal measurements
We introduce the problem of constructing weighted complex projective 2-designs from the union of a family of orthonormal bases. If the weight remains constant across elements of the same basis, thenExpand
MUBs inequivalence and affine planes
There are fairly large families of unitarily inequivalent complete sets of N+1 mutually unbiased bases (MUBs) in C^N for various prime powers N. The number of such sets is not bounded above by anyExpand

We work out the phase-space structure for a system of $n$ qubits. We replace the field of real numbers that label the axes of the continuous phase space by the finite field $\Gal{2^n}$ andExpand
