Figures from this paper


Symmetric informationally complete quantum measurements
It is conjecture that a particular kind of group-covariant SIC–POVM exists in arbitrary dimensions, providing numerical results up to dimension 45 to bolster this claim. Expand
Quantum circuits for general multiqubit gates.
A generic elementary gate sequence which is needed to implement a general quantum gate acting on n qubits-a unitary transformation with 4(n) degrees of freedom is considered, and a method based on the so-called cosine-sine matrix decomposition is presented. Expand
Quantum-state preparation with universal gate decompositions
In quantum computation every unitary operation can be decomposed into quantum circuits, a series of single qubit rotations and a single type entangling two-qubit gates, such as controlled-not(cnot)Expand
Theoretical framework for quantum networks
We present a framework to treat quantum networks and all possible transformations thereof, including as special cases all possible manipulations of quantum states, measurements, and channels, suchExpand
Quantum mechanics can reduce the complexity of classical models.
This work shows how to systematically construct quantum models that break this classical bound, and that the system of minimal entropy that simulates such processes must necessarily feature quantum dynamics. Expand
Quantum violations in the Instrumental scenario and their relations to the Bell scenario
This work identifies the simplest causal structure which exhibits a separation between classical, quantum, and post-quantum correlations and derives inequalities for this scenario and shows that they are closely related to well-known Bell inequalities. Expand
The quantum internet
This work states that quantum interconnects, which convert quantum states from one physical system to those of another in a reversible manner, can be achieved by the optical interactions of single photons and atoms, allowing the distribution of entanglement across the network and the teleportation of quantum states between nodes. Expand
Quantum internet: A vision for the road ahead
What it will take to achieve this so-called quantum internet is reviewed and different stages of development that each correspond to increasingly powerful applications are defined, including a full-blown quantum internet with functional quantum computers as nodes connected through quantum communication channels. Expand
Quantum common causes and quantum causal models
Reichenbach’s principle asserts that if two observed variables are found to be correlated, then there should be a causal explanation of these correlations. Furthermore, if the explanation is in termsExpand
Quantum correlations which imply causation
This work introduces the concept of a pseudo-density matrix (PDM) which treats space and time indiscriminately and defines a measure of causality that discriminates between spatial and temporal correlations. Expand
