  author={Luis Fernando Quezada and Shi-hai Dong},
  journal={Annalen der Physik},
In this work, the authors propose a quantum version of a generalized Monty Hall game, that is, one in which the parameters of the game are left free and not fixed on its regular values. The developed quantum scheme is then used to study the expected payoff of the player, using both a separable and an entangled initial‐state. In the two cases, the classical mixed‐strategy payoff is recovered under certain conditions. Lastly, the authors extend the quantum scheme to include multiple independent… 
Entanglement Property of Tripartite GHZ State in Different Accelerating Observer Frames
According to the single-mode approximation applied to two different mo des, each associated with different uniformly accelerating reference frames, we present analytical expression of the Minkowski
Quantum Game Application to Recovery Problem in Mobile Database
The purpose of this study is to present an adaptive algorithm based on quantum game theory for selecting the most efficient context-aware computing recovery procedure.
Bell‐GHZ Measurement‐Device‐Independent Quantum Key Distribution
In this work, a one‐sided measurement‐device‐independent quantum key distribution protocol that uses Bell and Greenberger–Horne–Zeilinger (GHZ) states is proposed. The protocol considers three
Quantum computing: A measurement and analysis review
Observations on executing basic quantum operations that play a vital role in quantum computing are presented which can be a reference point for the community in general engaged in designing of quantum circuits, protocols, algorithms, and quantum hardware to leverage quantum characteristics and properties.

Quantum Key‐Distribution Protocols Based on a Quantum Version of the Monty Hall Game
This work illustrates a possible application of quantum game theory to the area of quantum information, in particular to quantum cryptography. The study proposed two quantum key‐distribution (QKD)
Quantum PBR Theorem as a Monty Hall Game
The quantum Pusey--Barrett--Rudolph (PBR) theorem is reformulate as a Monty Hall game, and it is shown that winning probabilities, for switching doors in the game, depend whether it is a $\psi$-ontic or $psi-epistemic game.
Quantum-Optical set-up for the Monty Hall problem
A quantization scheme for the Monty Hall problem is proposed inspired by an experimentally-feasible, quantum-optical set-up that resembles the classical game and considering both entanglement and non-entanglement between player and host.
Quantum theory on protein folding
The conformational change of biological macromolecule is investigated from the point of quantum transition. A quantum theory on protein folding is proposed. Compared with other dynamical variables
Compendium of Quantum Physics
Theorems and paradoxes in Quantum Mechanics, including the Exclusion Principle, the Hardy Paradox, and more.
Quantum coherence, correlated noise and Parrondo games
We discuss the effect of correlated noise on the robustness of quantum coherent phenomena. First we consider a simple, toy model to illustrate the effect of such correlations on the decoherence
