Fluctuation theorems are fundamental extensions of the second law of thermodynamics for small systems. Their general validity arbitrarily far from equilibrium makes them invaluable in nonequilibrium physics. So far, experimental studies of quantum fluctuation relations do not account for quantum correlations and quantum coherence, two essential quantum properties. We here apply a novel dynamic Bayesian network approach to experimentally test detailed and integral fully quantum fluctuation…

Quasiprobability fluctuation theorem behind the spread of quantum information
Information spreads in time evolution. For example, the quantum correlation decays when the correlated system locally couples to a third party, such as the environment. This simple but important fact
Demonstrating quantum microscopic reversibility using coherent states of light
The principle of microscopic reversibility lies at the core of fluctuation theorems, which have extended our understanding of the second law of thermodynamics to the statistical level. In the quantum
Kirkwood-Dirac quasiprobability approach to quantum fluctuations: Theoretical and experimental perspectives
Recent work has revealed the central role played by the Kirkwood-Dirac quasiprobability (KDQ) as a tool to encapsulate non-classical features in the context of condensed matter physics (scram-bling,
Extraction of autonomous quantum coherences
Quantum coherence is an essential resource to gain advantage over classical physics and technology. Recently, it has been proposed that a low-temperature environment can induce quantum coherence of a
A quantum fluctuation theorem for dissipative processes
We present a general quantum fluctuation theorem for the entropy production of an open quantum system coupled to multiple environments, not necessarily at equilibrium. Such a general theorem, when
Extracting Bayesian networks from multiple copies of a quantum system
This work describes a general scheme to determine the multi-time path probability of a Bayesian network based on local measurements on independent copies of a composite quantum system combined with postselection and shows that this protocol corresponds to a non-projective measurement.

Quantum Fluctuation Theorems beyond Two-Point Measurements.
We derive detailed and integral quantum fluctuation theorems for heat exchange in a quantum correlated bipartite thermal system using the framework of dynamic Bayesian networks. Contrary to the usual
Exchange fluctuation theorem for correlated quantum systems.
The exchange fluctuation theorem for energy exchange between thermal quantum systems beyond the assumption of molecular chaos is extended, and the nonequilibrium exchange dynamics of correlated quantum states are described.
Quantum Fluctuation Theorems for Arbitrary Environments: Adiabatic and Nonadiabatic Entropy Production
We analyze the production of entropy along nonequilibrium processes in quantum systems coupled to generic environments. First, we show that the entropy production due to final measurements and the
Fully quantum fluctuation theorems
Systems that are driven out of thermal equilibrium typically dissipate random quantities of energy on microscopic scales. Crooks fluctuation theorem relates the distribution of these random work
Nonequilibrium fluctuations, fluctuation theorems, and counting statistics in quantum systems
