Quantum Darwinism posits that only specific information about a quantum system that is redundantly proliferated to many parts of its environment becomes accessible and objective, leading to the emergence of classical reality. However, it is not clear under what conditions this mechanism holds true. Here we prove that the emergence of classical features along the lines of quantum Darwinism is a general feature of any quantum dynamics: observers who acquire information indirectly through the… 
Role of information backflow in the emergence of quantum Darwinism
Quantum Darwinism attempts to explain the emergence of objective reality of the state of a quantum system in terms of redundant information about the system acquired by independent noninteracting
Quantum Darwinism and the spreading of classical information in non-classical theories
Quantum Darwinism posits that the emergence of a classical reality relies on the spreading of classical information from a quantum system to many parts of its environment. But what are the essential

Three insights into the transition from quantum to classical that are based on the recognition of the role of the environment are described, including the derivation of preferred sets of states that help to define what exists—the authors' everyday classical reality.
Non-Markovianity hinders Quantum Darwinism
It is shown that the presence of memory effects hinders the emergence of classical objective reality, linking these two apparently unrelated concepts via a unique dynamical feature related to decoherence factors.
Decoherence, quantum Darwinism, and the generic emergence of our objective classical reality
An intuitive and non-technical introduction to decoherence and quantum Darwinism is provided and recent results demonstrating that certain aspects of classicality are generic phenomena that emerge from the basic mathematical structure of quantum mechanics are introduced.
Quantum Darwinism and non-Markovianity in a model of quantum harmonic oscillators
To explain aspects of the quantum-to-classical transition, quantum Darwinism explores the fact that, due to interactions between a quantum open system and its surrounding environment, information
Random unitary evolution model of quantum Darwinism with pure decoherence
We study the behavior of Quantum Darwinism [W.H. Zurek, Nat. Phys. 5, 181 (2009)] within the iterative, random unitary operations qubit-model of pure decoherence [J. Novotný, G. Alber, I. Jex, New J.
Generic Emergence of Objectivity of Observables in Infinite Dimensions.
This work proves two theorems that bound the emergence of objectivity, first for finite mean energy systems, and then for systems that can only be prepared in states with an exponential energy cutoff, and shows that the latter class includes any bounded-energy subset of single-mode Gaussian states.
Whenever a quantum environment emerges as a classical system, it behaves like a measuring apparatus
We study the dynamics of a quantum system Γ with an environment Ξ made of N elementary quantum components. We aim at answering the following questions: can the evolution of Γ be characterized by some


Quantum Darwinism in non-ideal environments
The results demonstrate that Quantum Darwinism is robust with respect to non-ideal initial states of the environment: the environment almost always acquires redundant information about the system but its rate of acquisition can be reduced.
The rise and fall of redundancy in decoherence and quantum Darwinism
A state selected at random from the Hilbert space of a many-body system is overwhelmingly likely to exhibit highly non-classical correlations. For these typical states, half of the environment must
Quantum Darwinism
Quantum Darwinism describes the proliferation, in the environment, of multiple records of selected states of a quantum system. It explains how the fragility of a state of a single quantum system can
Quantum Darwinism: Entanglement, branches, and the emergent classicality of redundantly stored quantum information
The results show that the presence of redundancy divides information about the system into three parts: classical ( redundant); purely quantum; and the borderline, undifferentiated or "nonredundant," information.
Decoherence, einselection, and the quantum origins of the classical
as quantum engineering. In the past two decades it has become increasingly clear that many (perhaps all) of the symptoms of classicality can be induced in quantum systems by their environments. Thus
Quantum Darwinism in quantum Brownian motion.
This work reports the first study of the dynamics of quantum Darwinism in a realistic model of decoherence, quantum Brownian motion, where the system leaves records whose redundancy increases rapidly with initial delocalization.
Environment as a Witness: Selective Proliferation of Information and Emergence of Objectivity in a Quantum Universe
We study the role of the information deposited in the environment of an open quantum system in the course of the decoherence process. Redundant spreading of information---the fact that some
Quantum darwinism in a mixed environment.
Even such hazy environments eventually reveal the state of the system, although now the intercepted environment fragment must be larger by approximately (1-h)(-1) to gain the same information about the system.
Complementarity of quantum discord and classically accessible information
The sum of the Holevo quantity and the quantum discord yields an observable-independent total given by the quantum mutual information, which explains why, in a quantum Universe, the authors perceive objective classical reality while flagrantly quantum superpositions are out of reach.
A Simple Example of “Quantum Darwinism”: Redundant Information Storage in Many-Spin Environments
This paper examines how many-qubit (or many-spin) environments can store information about a single system and shows that randomly chosen states of the environment almost always encode the information so that an observer must capture a majority of the Environment to deduce the system’s state.
