Entropy Power Inequality in Fermionic Quantum Computation

  title={Entropy Power Inequality in Fermionic Quantum Computation},
  author={N. J. B. Aza and T D.A.Barbosa},
We study quantum computation relations on unital finite-dimensional CAR $C^{*}$-algebras. We prove an entropy power inequality (EPI) in a fermionic setting, which presumably will permit understanding the capacities in fermionic linear optics. Similar relations to the bosonic case are shown, and alternative proofs of known facts are given. Clifford algebras and the Grassmann representation can thus be used to obtain mathematical results regarding coherent fermion states.

Curvature-dimension conditions for symmetric quantum Markov semigroups

Two noncommutative versions of curvature-dimension bounds for symmetric quantum Markov semigroups over matrix algebras are introduced and a family of dimension-dependent functional inequalities, a version of the Bonnet–Myers theorem and concavity of entropy power in the noncommuter setting are proved.



Geometric inequalities from phase space translations

We establish a quantum version of the classical isoperimetric inequality relating the Fisher information and the entropy power of a quantum state. The key tool is a Fisher information inequality for

Non-commutative Calculus, Optimal Transport and Functional Inequalities in Dissipative Quantum Systems

A non-nommutative differential calculus is developed that allows to obtain non-commutative Ricci curvature bounds, logarithmic Sobolev inequalities, transport-entropy inequalities, and spectral gap estimates.

A generalization of the entropy power inequality to bosonic quantum systems

The conjectured entropy-power inequality, which determines the lower bound of channel capacity, is mathematically proved even in the quantum regime.

Entropy production for quantum dynamical semigroups

In analogy to the phenomenological theory of irreversible thermodynamics we define the entropy production for an arbitrary quantum dynamical semigroup with a stationary state. We prove that the

Classical simulation of dissipative fermionic linear optics

This work enlarges the set of available computational gates by allowing dissipative evolution governed by a Markovian master equation with linear Lindblad operators, and shows that this more general form of fermionic computation is also simulable efficiently by classical means.

Contractivity properties of a quantum diffusion semigroup

We consider a quantum generalization of the classical heat equation, and study contractivity properties of its associated semigroup. We prove a Nash inequality and a logarithmic Sobolev inequality.

Lagrangian representation for fermionic linear optics

Using the Lagrangian representation, a classical simulation of FLO is reduced to a computation of Gaussian integrals over Grassmann variables, and explicit formulas describing evolution of a quantum state under FLO operations are put forward.

Density Operators for Fermions

The mathematical methods that have been used to analyze the statistical properties of boson fields, and in particular the coherence of photons in quantum optics, have their counterparts for Fermi

Large deviations in weakly interacting fermions: Generating functions as Gaussian Berezin integrals and bounds on large Pfaffians

We prove that the Gärtner–Ellis generating function of probability distributions associated with KMS states of weakly interacting fermions on the lattice can be written as the limit of logarithms of

Quantum Dynamical Semigroups and Applications

In this text the authors develop quantum dynamics of open systems for a wide class of irreversible processes starting from the concept of completely positive semigroups. This unified approach makes
