Some of the important inequalities associated with quantum entropy are immediate algebraic consequences of the Hansen-Pedersen-Jensen inequality. A general argument is given in terms of the matrix perspective of an operator convex function. A matrix analogue of Mar\'{e}chal's extended perspectives provides additional inequalities, including a $p+q\leq 1$ result of Lieb.

Entropy and isoperimetry for linear and non-linear group actions

We prove inequalities of isoperimetric type for groups acting on linear spaces and discuss related geometric and combinatorial problems, where we use the Boltzmann entropy to keep track of the



A simple proof of the strong subadditivity inequality

This short tutorial describes a simple proof of strong subadditivity due to Petz, and assumes only knowledge of elementary linear algebra and quantum mechanics.

Convex trace functions and the Wigner-Yanase-Dyson conjecture

Jensen's Operator Inequality

Jensen's operator inequality and Jensen's trace inequality for real functions defined on an interval are established in what might be called their definitive versions. This is accomplished by the

Multiplicativity of Completely Bounded p-Norms Implies a New Additivity Result

AbstractWe prove additivity of the minimal conditional entropy associated with a quantum channel Φ, represented by a completely positive (CP), trace-preserving map, when the infimum of S(γ12) − S(γ1)

Proof of the strong subadditivity of quantum‐mechanical entropy

We prove several theorems about quantum‐mechanical entropy, in particular, that it is strongly subadditive.

Convex Trace Functions and the Wigner-Yanase-Dyson Conjecture

  • Mathematics
This paper is concerned with certain convex or concave mappings of linear operators on a Hilbert space into the reals. [f(A) is convex if f(ilA + (1 il)B) <; t..j(A) + (1 il)f(B) for 0 < il < 1 and

On a Functional Operation Generating Convex Functions, Part 2: Algebraic Properties

Algebraic properties of the functional operation introduced in Part 1 of this paper (Ref. 1) are considered. In essence, the functional operation is shown to be associative, right distributive with

Jensen's inequality for operators and Löwner's theorem

We shall say that a continuous, real function f on I satisfies Jensen's Operator Inequality if (JO) holds for any self-adjoint matrix x with spectrum in I and every matrix a with ][a[[< 1. Since we

The non-commutative Legendre-Fenchel transform

We use the theory of matrix convex sets of Effros-Winkler to introduce a non-commutative version of convex functions, and we show how the Legendre-Fenchel transform generalizes to this situation
