Noisy quantum channels may be used in many information-carrying applications. We show that different applications may result in different channel capacities. Upper bounds on several of these capacities are proved. These bounds are based on the coherent information, which plays a role in quantum information theory analogous to that played by the mutual information in classical information theory. Many new properties of the coherent information and entanglement fidelity are proved. Two… Expand

Entanglement cost of quantum channels
TLDR
Here, it is shown that any coding scheme that sends quantum information through a quantum channel at a rate larger than the entanglement cost of the channel has an exponentially small fidelity. Expand

TLDR
Improved upper bounds to the quantum and private capacities for fundamental quantum channels of interest in quantum information are established, some of which are also the sources of noise in superconducting quantum computing. Expand
Fundamental bound on the reliability of quantum information transmission
TLDR
This work gives a bound and uses it to give the first example where the reliability of sending quantum information at rates above the capacity decays exponentially to zero and shows that the framework can be used for proving generalized bounds on the reliability. Expand

TLDR
Improved upper bounds to the quantum and private capacities for fundamental quantum channels of great interest in quantum information are established, some of which are also the sources of noise in superconducting quantum computing. Expand
The private classical capacity and quantum capacity of a quantum channel
  • I. Devetak
  • Physics, Computer Science
  • IEEE Transactions on Information Theory
  • 2005
TLDR
Motivated by the work of Schumacher and Westmoreland on quantum privacy and quantum coherence, parallels between private classical information and quantum information are exploited to obtain an expression for the capacity of a quantum channel for generating pure bipartite entanglement. Expand
Channel Simulation With Quantum Side Information
  • Z. Luo, I. Devetak
  • Computer Science, Mathematics
  • IEEE Transactions on Information Theory
  • 2009
TLDR
The main theorem has two important corollaries: the first is a quantum generalization of the Wyner-Ziv problem: rate-distortion theory with quantum side information, and the second is an alternative proof of the tradeoff between classical communication and common randomness distilled from a quantum state. Expand
Quantum communication under channel uncertainty
TLDR
Coding theorems are proven, as well as a quantum analogue of the Ahlswede-dichotomy, for the CQC and the AVQC, and the notion of symmetrisability is defined and used for both classes of channels. Expand
Strong Converse Rates for Quantum Communication
TLDR
It is established that the Rains information of any quantum channel is a strong converse rate for quantum communication, and it is shown that the fidelity vanishes exponentially fast as the number of channel uses increases; this remains true even if the authors consider codes that perform classical post-processing on the transmitted quantum data. Expand
Strong converse rates for quantum communication
TLDR
For generalized dephasing channels, it is established that the Rains information of any quantum channel is a strong converse rate for quantum communication, and for the first time conclusively settles thestrong converse question for a class of quantum channels that have a non-trivial quantum capacity.
