We introduce a rigorous framework for the quantification of coherence and identify intuitive and easily computable measures of coherence. We achieve this by adopting the viewpoint of coherence as a physical resource. By determining defining conditions for measures of coherence we identify classes of functionals that satisfy these conditions and other, at first glance natural quantities, that do not qualify as coherence measures. We conclude with an outline of the questions that remain to be…

Coherence measure: Logarithmic coherence number
We introduce a measure of coherence, which is extended from the coherence rank via the standard convex roof construction, we call it the logarithmic coherence number. This approach is parallel to the
Coherence measures and optimal conversion for coherent states
TLDR
The optimal conversion of coherent states under incoherent operations is presented which sheds some light on the coherence of a single copy of a pure state.
Evaluating the robustness of k -coherence and k -entanglement
We show that two related measures of k-coherence, called the standard and generalized robustness of k-coherence, are equal to each other when restricted to pure states. As a direct application of the
The modified trace distance of coherence is constant on most pure states
Recently, the much-used trace distance of coherence was shown to not be a proper measure of coherence, so a modification of it was proposed. We derive an explicit formula for this modified trace
Resource-theoretic approach to vectorial coherence.
TLDR
A formal resource-theoretic approach to assess the coherence between partially polarized electromagnetic fields, identifying two resource theories for the vectorial coherence: polarization-sensitive coherence and polarization-insensitive coherence.
Ordering states with coherence measures
TLDR
This paper considers the two well-known coherence measures, the $$l_1$$l1 norm of coherence and the relative entropy of co efficacy and the coherence of formation, to show that there are the states for which the two measures give a different ordering.
Robustness of Coherence: An Operational and Observable Measure of Quantum Coherence.
TLDR
The robustness of coherence is defined and proven to be a full monotone in the context of the recently introduced resource theories of quantum coherence, and the measure is shown to be observable.
Variance Measure of Coherence of Quantum Pure States
We provide an expression for the measure of coherence of quantum pure states, which is obtained by quantifying the deviation or distance between the measured state and the maximally coherent states
Entanglement as the Symmetric Portion of Correlated Coherence.
TLDR
The constructions that are presented can be extended to include more general notions of nonclassical correlations, leading to quantifiers that are related to quantum discord, thus providing an avenue for unifying all such notions of quantum correlations under a single framework.
Coherence measure in terms of the Tsallis relative α entropy
TLDR
A family of coherence quantifiers which are closely related to the Tsallis relative α entropy are established and it is proved that this family of quantifiers satisfy all the standard criteria and particularly cover several typical coherence measures.
