Quantum discord is a manifestation of quantum correlations due to non-commutativity rather than entanglement. Two measures of quantum discord by the amount of non-commutativity via the trace norm and the Hilbert-Schmidt norm respectively are proposed in this paper. These two measures can be calculated easily for any state with arbitrary dimension. It is shown by several examples that these measures can reflect the amount of the original quantum discord. 

Study on Non-Commutativity Measure of Quantum Discord

In this paper, we are concerned with the non-commutativity measure of quantum discord. We first present an explicit expression of the non-commutativity measure of quantum discord in the two-qubit

Non-commutative measure of quantum correlations under local operations

The results accentuate the potentialities of recently introduced measures of quantum correlations based on the amount of non-commutativity quantified by the Hilbert–Schmidt norm and exhibit them as valid monotones in a resource theory of quantum correlation with free operations restricted to the appropriate local channels.

Quantum discord of states arising from graphs

This work attempts to develop a graph theoretic study of quantum discord that corresponds to a necessary and sufficient condition of zero quantum discord states which says that the blocks of density matrix corresponding to azero quantum discord state are normal and commute with each other.

Problem of quantifying quantum correlations with non-commutative discord

This work analyzes a non-commutativity measure of quantum correlations recently proposed by Guo and argues that a minimization procedure over the set of all possible representations of the quantum state is required and the optimal basis turns out to be that of Schmidt’s.

Quantum coherence and geometric quantum discord

Zero discord quantum states arising from weighted digraphs

This paper determines the class of quantum states whose density matrix representation can be derived from graph Laplacian matrices associated with a weighted directed graph and they are called graph LaPLacian quantum states and applies these results on some important mixed quantum states, such as the Werner, Isotropic, and $X-states.

Nonclassicality of local bipartite correlations

Simulating quantum nonlocality and steering requires augmenting pre-shared randomness with non-vanishing communication cost. This prompts the question of how one may provide such an operational

Quantum discord and its allies: a review of recent progress

We review concepts and methods associated with quantum discord and related topics. We also describe their possible connections with other aspects of quantum information and beyond, including quantum

Geometric Quantum Discord in the Heisenberg XX Model with Three-Spin Interactions

Quantum discord is a resource for quantum information processing tasks, and seeking flexible ways to control it is of practical significance. We investigate the trace distance, Bures distance, and

Revisiting the behavior of quantum correlations under nondissipative decoherence by means of the correlation matrix



Quantum discord: a measure of the quantumness of correlations.

This work shows that absence of entanglement does not imply classicality, and considers the vanishing of discord as a criterion for the preferred effectively classical states of a system, i.e., the pointer states.

Non-commutativity and Local Indistinguishability of Quantum States

By introducing an easily calculated quantity, non-commutativity, an criterion which is both necessary and sufficient for the local indistinguishability of a complete set of pure orthogonal product states is presented.

Quantum discord and Maxwell's demons

Quantum discord was proposed as an information-theoretic measure of the ``quantumness'' of correlations. I show that discord determines the difference between the efficiency of quantum and classical

Necessary and sufficient condition for nonzero quantum discord.

A necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of nonzero quantum discord for any dimensional bipartite states is obtained, and a geometrical way of quantifying quantum discord is proposed.

Quantum discord, local operations, and Maxwell's demons

Quantum discord was proposed as a measure of the quantumness of correlations. There are at least three different discordlike quantities, two of which determine the difference between the efficiencies

Witnessing the quantum discord of all the unknown states

Like entanglement, quantum discord quantifies the quantum correlations. Unlike entanglement, whose detection is extremely difficult, the quantum discord of an arbitrary bipartite state allows itself

Quantum discord for two-qubit systems

Quantum discord, as introduced by Olliver and Zurek [Phys. Rev. Lett. 88, 017901 (2001)], is a measure of the discrepancy between two natural yet different quantum analogs of the classical mutual

Geometric quantum discord through the Schatten 1-norm

It has recently been pointed out that the geometric quantum discord, as defined by the Hilbert-Schmidt norm (2-norm), is not a good measure of quantum correlations, since it may increase under local

Quantum Discord and Geometry for a Class of Two-qubit States

We study the level surfaces of quantum discord for a class of two-qubit states with parallel nonzero Bloch vectors. The dynamic behavior of quantum discord under decoherence is investigated. It is

Quantum versus classical correlations in Gaussian states.

Quantum discord, a measure of genuinely quantum correlations, is generalized to continuous variable systems. For all two-mode Gaussian states, we calculate analytically the quantum discord and a
