Distance-based resource quantification for sets of quantum measurements

  title={Distance-based resource quantification for sets of quantum measurements},
  author={Lucas Tendick and Martin Kliesch and Hermann Kampermann and Dagmar Bru{\ss}},
The advantage that quantum systems provide for certain quantum information processing tasks over their classical counterparts can be quantified within the general framework of resource theories. Certain distance functions between quantum states have successfully been used to quantify resources like entanglement and coherence. Perhaps surprisingly, such a distance-based approach has not been adopted to study resources of quantum measurements, where other geometric quantifiers are used instead…

Operational relevance of resource theories of quantum measurements
It is proved that every resource measurement offers advantage for some quantum state discrimination task, and an operational interpretation of robustness is given, which quantifies the minimal amount of noise that must be added to a measurement to make it free.
Quantifying Measurement Incompatibility of Mutually Unbiased Bases.
This work quantifies precisely the degree of incompatibility of mutually unbiased bases (MUB) using the notion of noise robustness using the standard construction for d being a prime power, and provides upper and lower bounds on this quantity for sets of k MUB in dimension d.
Quantum resource theories
Quantum resource theories (QRTs) offer a highly versatile and powerful framework for studying different phenomena in quantum physics. From quantum entanglement to quantum computation, resource
Incompatibility robustness of quantum measurements: a unified framework
This work develops a general framework that encompasses all the commonly used measures of incompatibility based on robustness to noise and analytically proves that projective measurements onto two mutually unbiased bases are among the most incompatible pairs in every dimension.
Operational resource theory of quantum channels
This Letter proposes a general resource framework for quantum channels and introduces resource monotones based on general distance quantifiers of channels, and studies the interplay between channel and state resource theories by relating resourceMonotones of a quantum channel to its manipulation power of the state resource.
General Resource Theories in Quantum Mechanics and Beyond: Operational Characterization via Discrimination Tasks
This work finds that discrimination tasks provide a unified operational description for quantification and manipulation of resources by showing that the family of robustness measures can be understood as the maximum advantage provided by any physical resource in several different discrimination tasks, as well as establishing that such discrimination problems can fully characterize the allowed transformations within the given resource theory.
Operational Interpretation of Weight-Based Resource Quantifiers in Convex Quantum Resource Theories.
The resource quantifier of weight of resource for convex quantum resource theories of states and measurements with arbitrary resources captures the advantage that a resourceful state offers over all possible free states (measurements) in the operational task of exclusion of subchannels (states).
Quantifying Quantum Resources with Conic Programming.
Conic programming is used to prove that any general robustness measure (with respect to a convex set of free states or measurements) can be seen as a quantifier of such outperformance in some discrimination task.
All Sets of Incompatible Measurements give an Advantage in Quantum State Discrimination.
It is shown that every set of incompatible measurements provides an advantage over compatible ones in a suitably chosen quantum state discrimination task and that if the authors take a resource-theory perspective of measurement incompatibility, then the guessing probability in discrimination tasks of this type forms a complete set of monotones that completely characterize the partial order in the resource theory.
Optimal single-shot strategies for discrimination of quantum measurements
We study discrimination of m quantum measurements in the scenario when the unknown measurement with n outcomes can be used only once. We show that ancilla-assisted discrimination procedures provide a
