Multi-level Amplitude Damping channels: quantum capacity analysis

  title={Multi-level Amplitude Damping channels: quantum capacity analysis},
  author={Stefano Chessa and Vittorio Giovannetti},
  journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics},
The set of Multi-level Amplitude Damping (MAD) quantum channels is introduced as a generalization of the standard qubit Amplitude Damping Channel to quantum systems of finite dimension $d$. In the special case of $d=3$, by exploiting degradability, data-processing inequalities, and channel isomorphism, we compute the associated quantum and private classical capacities for a rather wide class of maps, extending the set of solvable models known so far. We proceed then to the evaluation of the…

The performance of a partially correlated amplitude damping channel acting on two qubits is studied, achieving a good estimate for high values of the channel transmissivity and the entanglement-assisted classical channel capacity is computed.
