Quantum Stabilizer Channel for Thermalization

  title={Quantum Stabilizer Channel for Thermalization},
  author={Esteban Mart'inez-Vargas},
We study the problem of quantum thermalization from a very recent perspective: via discrete interactions with thermalized systems. We thus extend the previously introduced scattering thermalization program by studying not only a specific channel but allowing any possible one. We find a channel that solves a fixed point condition using the Choi matrix approach that is in general non-trace-preserving. We find the explicit channel that solves this problem which yields a condition for trace…

Thermalization in nature and on a quantum computer.

A novel perturbation theorem for physically relevant weak system-bath couplings that is applicable even in the thermodynamic limit is introduced and a fully general quantum algorithm for preparing Gibbs states on a quantum computer with a certified runtime and error bound is presented.

Thermalization Induced by Quantum Scattering

We use quantum scattering theory to study a fixed quantum system Y subject to collisions with massive particles X described by wave-packets. We derive the scattering map for system Y and show that

Quantum error correction for quantum memories

It may seem inevitable that highly entangled quantum states are susceptible to disturbance through interaction with a decohering environment. However, certain multiqubit entangled states are well

Using and reusing coherence to realize quantum processes

It is found that in general a quantum channel can be implemented without employing a maximally coherent resource state, and it is proved that every pure coherent state in dimension larger than 2 turns out to be a valuable resource to implement some coherent unitary channel.

The Argument against Quantum Computers

We give a computational complexity argument against the feasibility of quantum computers. We identify a very low complexity class of probability distributions described by noisy intermediate-scale

A semidefinite programming approach to optimal unambiguous discrimination of quantumstates

We consider the problem of unambiguous discrimination between a set of linearly independent pure quantum states. We show that the design of the optimal measurement that minimizes the probability of

Quantum Computation and Quantum Information (10th Anniversary edition)

Containing a wealth of figures and exercises, this well-known textbook is ideal for courses on the subject, and will interest beginning graduate students and researchers in physics, computer science, mathematics, and electrical engineering.

Resource theory of quantum non-Gaussianity and Wigner negativity

A resource theory for continuous-variable systems grounded on operations routinely available within current quantum technologies, which lends itself to quantify both quantum non-Gaussianity and Wigner negativity as resources, depending on the choice of the free-state set.

Entanglement and the foundations of statistical mechanics

Statistical mechanics is one of the most successful areas of physics. Yet, almost 150 years since its inception, its foundations and basic postulates are still the subject of debate. Here we suggest

Improved Simulation of Stabilizer Circuits

The Gottesman-Knill theorem, which says that a stabilizer circuit, a quantum circuit consisting solely of controlled-NOT, Hadamard, and phase gates can be simulated efficiently on a classical computer, is improved in several directions.
