We present a self-consistent theoretical framework for finite-dimensional discrete phase spaces that leads us to establish a well-grounded mapping scheme between Schwinger unitary operators and generators of the special unitary group . This general mathematical construction provides a sound pathway to the formulation of a genuinely discrete Wigner function for arbitrary quantum systems described by finite-dimensional state vector spaces. To illustrate our results, we obtain a general discrete… 
The Weyl‐Wigner‐Moyal Formalism on a Discrete Phase Space. I. A Wigner Function for a Nonrelativistic Particle with Spin
The Weyl‐Wigner‐Moyal formalism for quantum particle with discrete internal degrees of freedom is developed. A one to one correspondence between operators in the Hilbert space L2(R3)⊗H(s+1) and
Representations of two-qubit and ququart states via discrete Wigner functions
By means of a well-grounded mapping scheme linking Schwinger unitary operators and generators of the special unitary group $\mathrm{SU(N)}$, it is possible to establish a self-consistent theoretical
Generalized spin mapping for quantum-classical dynamics.
A spin-mapping approach based on the well-known quantum equivalence between a two-level system and a spin-1/2 particle is generalized to describe the dynamics of N-level systems and derives a simple way to approximate correlation functions in complex nonadiabatic molecular systems via classical trajectories.
Overview of the Phase Space Formulation of Quantum Mechanics with Application to Quantum Technologies
An overview of quantum mechanics in phase space is presented, and the formulation to generate a generalized phase-space function for any arbitrary quantum system is shown, such as the Wigner and Weyl functions along with the Q and P functions.
New phase space formulations and quantum dynamics approaches
We report recent progress on the phase space formulation of quantum mechanics with coordinate-momentum variables, focusing more on new theory of (weighted) constraint coordinate-momentum phase space


Generalized Reduction Formula for Discrete Wigner Functions of Multiqubit Systems
Density matrices and Discrete Wigner Functions are equally valid representations of multiqubit quantum states. For density matrices, the partial trace operation is used to obtain the quantum state of
Extended Cahill-Glauber formalism for finite-dimensional spaces. II. Applications in quantum tomography and quantum teleportation
By means of a mod(N)-invariant operator basis, s-parametrized phase-space functions associated with bounded operators in a finite-dimensional Hilbert space are introduced in the context of the
Discrete phase space based on finite fields
The original Wigner function provides a way of representing in phase space the quantum states of systems with continuous degrees of freedom. Wigner functions have also been developed for discrete

A general and consistent framework for constructing Wigner functions exploiting the underlying symmetries in the physical system at hand is presented.
Properties of finite Gaussians and the discrete-continuous transition
Weyl's formulation of quantum mechanics opened the possibility of studying the dynamics of quantum systems both in infinite-dimensional and finite-dimensional systems. Based on Weyl's approach,
Discrete Wigner functions and quantum computational speedup
Gibbons et al. [Phys. Rev. A 70, 062101 (2004)] have recently defined a class of discrete Wigner functions W to represent quantum states in a finite Hilbert space dimension d. I characterize the set
Discrete coherent and squeezed states of many-qudit systems
We consider the phase space for n identical qudits (each one of dimension d, with d a primer number) as a grid of d{sup n}xd{sup n} points and use the finite Galois field GF(d{sup n}) to label the
