A hybrid code can simultaneously encode classical and quantum information into quantum digits such that the information is protected against errors when transmitted through a quantum channel. It is shown that a hybrid code has the remarkable feature that it can detect more errors than a comparable quantum code that is able to encode the classical and quantum information. Weight enumerators are introduced for hybrid codes that allow to characterize the minimum distance of hybrid codes… 

Infinite Families of Quantum-Classical Hybrid Codes

This work gives several general results about hybrid codes, most notably that the quantum codes comprising a genuine hybrid code must be impure and that hybrid codes can always detect more errors than comparable quantum codes.

Singleton bounds for entanglement-assisted classical and quantum error correcting codes

We show that entirely information theoretic methods, based on von Neumann entropies and their properties, can be used to derive Singleton bounds on the performance of entanglement-assisted hybrid

Quantum complementarity and operator structures

It is established that operator structure identities for quantum channels and their error-correcting and private codes are established, emphasizing the complementarity relationship between the two perspectives.

Higher rank matricial ranges and hybrid quantum error correction

Borders on Hilbert space dimension are established in terms of properties of a tuple of operators that guarantee a matricial range is non-empty and hence additionally guarantee the existence of hybrid codes for a given quantum channel.

Quantum teleportation in the commuting operator framework

. We introduce a notion of teleportation scheme between subalgebras of semi-finite von Neumann algebras in the commuting operator model of locality. Using techniques from subfactor theory, we present



Classical Enhancement of Quantum Error-Correcting Codes

A general formalism for quantum error-correcting codes that encode both classical and quantum information (the EACQ formalism) is presented, which unifies the entanglement-assisted formalism and classical error correction.

Non-binary unitary error bases and quantum codes

Error operator bases for systems of any dimension are defined and natural generalizations of the bit-flip/ sign-change error basis for qubits are given. These bases allow generalizing the

The Capacity of a Quantum Channel for Simultaneous Transmission of Classical and Quantum Information

An expression is derived characterizing the set of admissible rate pairs for simultaneous transmission of classical and quantum information over a given quantum channel, generalizing both the

Entanglement-Assisted Communication of Classical and Quantum Information

The main result is a capacity theorem that gives a 3-D achievable rate region that justifies the need for simultaneous coding of classical and quantum information over an EAQ channel.

Capacity theorems for quantum multiple-access channels: classical-quantum and quantum-quantum capacity regions

This paper gives multiletter characterizations of two different two-dimensional capacity regions for an arbitrary quantum channels with two senders and one receiver, and states that the coherent information over any degradable channel is concave in the input density operator.

Generalization of quantum error correction via the Heisenberg picture.

We show that the theory of operator quantum error correction can be naturally generalized by allowing constraints not only on states but also on observables. The resulting theory describes the

Codes for simultaneous transmission of quantum and classical information

This work constructs hybrid codes [n, k:m, d] with length n and distance d, that simultaneously transmit k qudits and m symbols from a classical alphabet of size q.

Beyond stabilizer codes I: Nice error bases

Nice error bases have been introduced by Knill (1996) as a generalization of the Pauli basis. These bases are shown to be projective representations of finite groups. We classify all nice error bases
