The entropic uncertainty relation with quantum side information (EUR-QSI) from (Berta et al 2010 Nat. Phys. 6 659) is a unifying principle relating two distinctive features of quantum mechanics: quantum uncertainty due to measurement incompatibility, and entanglement. In these relations, quantum uncertainty takes the form of preparation uncertainty where one of two incompatible measurements is applied. In particular, the ‘uncertainty witness’ lower bound in the EUR-QSI is not a function of a… 

Entropic uncertainty relations in the spin-1 Heisenberg model

The dynamical evolution of QMA-EUR is derived for various incompatible measurements on Pauli operators and SU(3) generators in the Heisenberg XXX and XYZ models and it is declared that the dynamics of the entropic uncertainty of interest are approximately anti-correlated with that of negativity.

Entropic uncertainty relations for quantum information scrambling

Different fields of physics characterize differently how much two quantum operations disagree: quantum information theory features uncertainty relations cast in terms of entropies. The higher an

Quantum-memory-assisted entropic uncertainty relation in a Heisenberg XYZ chain with an inhomogeneous magnetic field

The uncertainty principle provides a nontrivial bound to expose the precision for the outcome of the measurement on a pair of incompatible observables in a quantum system. Therefore, it is of

The Complementary Information Principle of Quantum Mechanics

A framework of black box testing consisting of pre- and post-testing with two incompatible measurements is built, introducing a rigorous mathematical expression of complementarity with definite information causality and it is proved that bounds are optimal under majorization due to the completeness of the majorization lattice.

Exploration of quantum-memory-assisted entropic uncertainty relations in a noninertial frame

The uncertainty principle offers a bound to show accuracy of the simultaneous measurement outcome for two incompatible observables. In this letter, we investigate quantum-memory-assisted entropic

Tighter Bound of Entropic Uncertainty under the Unruh Effect

The uncertainty principle limits the ability to simultaneously predict measurement outcomes for two non‐commuting observables of a quantum particle. However, the uncertainty can be violated by

Steering the measured uncertainty under decoherence through local PT-symmetric operations

The uncertainty principle is viewed as one of the appealing properties in the context of quantum mechanics, which intrinsically offers a lower bound with regard to the measurement outcomes of a pair

Probing entropic uncertainty relations under a two-atom system coupled with structured bosonic reservoirs

The aim is to examine non-Markovian effects on quantum-memory-assisted entropic uncertainty relations in a system consisting of two atoms coupled with structured bosonic reservoirs and claims that the entropics uncertainty relation could be a promising tool with which to probe entanglement in current architecture.

Entropic uncertainty for spin-1/2 XXX chains in the presence of inhomogeneous magnetic fields and its steering via weak measurement reversals

The uncertainty principle configures a low bound to the measuring precision for a pair of non-commuting observables, and hence is considerably nontrivial to quantum precision measurement in the field

Uncertainty relations in terms of min-entropies and Rényi entropies for POVMs assigned to a quantum design and relations of the Landau–Pollak type are addressed.



Position-momentum uncertainty relations in the presence of quantum memory

A prominent formulation of the uncertainty principle identifies the fundamental quantum feature that no particle may be prepared with certain outcomes for both position and momentum measurements.

Entropic uncertainty relations and their applications

This review surveys entropic uncertainty relations that capture Heisenberg’s idea that the results of incompatible measurements are impossible to predict, covering both finite- and infinite-dimensional measurements.

Uncertainty relation for smooth entropies.

This paper shows that security of quantum key distribution protocols implies security of smooth entropies, and shows that this security claim remains valid even if the implemented measurement devices deviate arbitrarily from the theoretical model.

Uncertainty, monogamy, and locking of quantum correlations

The results lead to the conclusion that both measures can drop by an arbitrary amount when only a single qubit of a local system is lost.

Relative entropy derivation of the uncertainty principle with quantum side information

We give a simple proof of the uncertainty principle with quantum side information, as in [Berta et al. Nature Physics 6, 659 (2010)], invoking the monotonicity of the relative entropy. Our proof

If the decrease in quantum relative entropy between two quantum states after a quantum physical evolution is relatively small, then it is possible to perform a recovery operation, such that one can perfectly recover one state while approximately recovering the other.

Uncertainty relations from simple entropic properties.

This work shows that a single technique applies to several entropic quantities, including the von Neumann entropy, min- and max-entropies, and the Rényi entropies.

Extended Quantum Conditional Entropy and Quantum Uncertainty Inequalities

Quantum states can be subjected to classical measurements, whose incompatibility, or uncertainty, can be quantified by a comparison of certain entropies. There is a long history of such entropy

Conjectured strong complementary information tradeoff.

A special case for certain conjugate observables is proved by adapting a similar result found by Christandl and Winter pertaining to quantum channels, and possible applications to the decoupling of quantum systems and for security analysis in quantum cryptography are discussed.

Entanglement Sampling and Applications

This work establishes the first entropic uncertainty relations with quantum side information that are nontrivial whenever E is not maximally entangled with A, and is able to prove optimality of quantum cryptographic schemes in the noisy-storage model.
