Generalized Wigner-Yanase Skew Information and the Affiliated Inequality

  title={Generalized Wigner-Yanase Skew Information and the Affiliated Inequality},
  author={Ma-Cheng Yang and Congyu Qiao},
A family of skew information quantities is obtained, in which the well-known Wigner-Yanase skew information and quantum Fisher information stand as special cases. A transparent proof of convexity of the generalized skew information is given, implying a simple proof of the Wigner-Yanase-Dyson conjecture. We find in this work an exact skew information inequality for qubit system, which may regard as the information counterpart of the uncertainty relation. A lower bound for generalized skew…

It is demonstrated that the statistical idea underlying the skew information is the Fisher information in the theory of statistical estimation, and a quantum Cramér-Rao inequality and a new uncertainty relation are established, which shed considerable new light on the relationships between quantum measurement and statistical inference.
On skew information
It is shown that skew information introduced by Wigner and Yanase can be interpreted as a measure of quantum uncertainty and established a new uncertainty relation in the spirit of Schrodinger, which incorporates both incompatibility and correlations between observables.

A connection is established between the geometrical formulation of quantum statistics as proposed by Chentsov and Morozova and measures of quantum information as introduced by Wigner and Yanase and extended in this article.
Uncertainty relation of mixed states by means of Wigner-Yanase-Dyson information
The variance of an observable in a quantum state is usually used to describe Heisenberg uncertainty relation. For mixed states, the variance includes quantum and classical uncertainties. By means of
The Optimal Uncertainty Relation
Employing the lattice theory on majorization, the universal quantum uncertainty relation for any number of observables and general measurement is investigated. It is found that 1) the least bounds of

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.
A generalized skew information and uncertainty relation
A generalized skew information is defined and a generalized uncertainty relation is established with the help of a trace inequality which was recently proven by Fujii. In addition, we prove the trace
Generalized entropic uncertainty relations.
A new class of uncertainty relations is derived for pairs of observables in a finite-dimensional Hilbert space which do not have any common eigenvector. This class contains an ``entropic''
Quantum metrology from a quantum information science perspective
We summarize important recent advances in quantum metrology, in connection to experiments in cold gases, trapped cold atoms and photons. First we review simple metrological setups, such as quantum
