# Partial decode-forward for quantum relay channels

@article{Savov2012PartialDF, title={Partial decode-forward for quantum relay channels}, author={Ivan Savov and Mark M. Wilde and Mai H. Vu}, journal={2012 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory Proceedings}, year={2012}, pages={731-735} }

A relay channel is one in which a Source and Destination use an intermediate Relay station in order to improve communication rates. We propose the study of relay channels with classical inputs and quantum outputs and prove that a “partial decode and forward” strategy is achievable. We divide the channel uses into many blocks and build codes in a randomized, block-Markov manner within each block. The Relay performs a standard Holevo-Schumacher-Westmoreland quantum measurement on each block in… Expand
