Quantum theory forbids physical measurements from giving observers enough evidence to distinguish nonorthogonal quantum states—this is an expression of the indeterminism inherent in all quantum phenomena. As a consequence, operational measures of how distinct one quantum state is from another must depend exclusively on the statistics of measurements and nothing else. This compels the use of various information-theoretic measures of distinguishability for probability distributions as the… CONTINUE READING
