A generalization of Shannon’s amount of information into quantum measurements of continuous observables is introduced. A necessary and sufficient condition for measuring processes to have a non‐negative amount of information is obtained. This resolves Groenewold’s conjecture completely including the case of measurements of continuous observables. As an application the approximate position measuring process considered by von Neumann and later by Davies is shown to have a non‐negative amount of… CONTINUE READING
