It is known that if $$d^2$$ d 2 vectors in a d -dimensional Hilbert space H form a symmetric, informationally complete, positive operator-valued measure (SIC-POVM), then the tensor squares of these vectors form an equiangular tight frame in the symmetric subspace of $$H\otimes H$$ H ⊗ H . We prove that, for any SIC-POVM of the Weyl–Heisenberg group covariant type (WH-type), this frame can be obtained by projecting a WH-type basis in $$H\otimes H$$ H ⊗ H onto the symmetric subspace. We give a…
