@article{Datta2008QuantumDA, title={Quantum discord and the power of one qubit.}, author={Animesh Datta and Anil Shaji and Carlton M. Caves}, journal={Physical review letters}, year={2008}, volume={100 5}, pages={ 050502 } }

We use quantum discord to characterize the correlations present in the model called deterministic quantum computation with one quantum bit (DQC1), introduced by Knill and Laflamme [Phys. Rev. Lett. 81, 5672 (1998)10.1103/PhysRevLett.81.5672]. The model involves a collection of qubits in the completely mixed state coupled to a single control qubit that has nonzero purity. The initial state, operations, and measurements in the model all point to a natural bipartite split between the control qubit…

Among various definitions of quantum correlations, quantum discord has attracted considerable attention. The connection between the quantum discord and the entanglement of formation is described by…

Dynamics of Quantum Discord of Two-Qubit Coupled with a Vacuum Cavity

- Physics
- 2013

The dynamical behaviors of quantum discord between two atoms coupled with a vacuum cavity are investigated. If the two qubits are initially prepared in two extended Werner-like states, the quantum…

Quantum dissension: Generalizing quantum discord for three-qubit states

- Physics
- 2011

Abstract
We introduce the notion of quantum dissension for a three-qubit system as a measure of
quantum correlations. We use three classically equivalent expressions of three-variable
mutual…

Quantum discord dynamics of two-qubit system in a quantum spin environment

- Physics

Abstract
We study the dynamics of quantum discord of two-qubit system in a quantum spin
environment at finite temperature in the thermodynamics limit. Special attention is paid
to the difference…

Geometric quantum discord with Bures distance: the qubit case

- Mathematics
- 2014

The minimal Bures distance of a quantum state of a bipartite system AB to the set of classical states for subsystem A defines a geometric measure of quantum discord. When A is a qubit, we show that…

We study the dynamics of classical correlation and quantum discord of two-qubit system interacted with the thermal reservoir. Special attention is paid to the difference between the entanglement and…

Sudden decoherence transitions for quantum discord

- Physics
- 2013

We investigate the disappearance of discord in 2- and multi-qubit systems subject to decohering influences. We formulate the computation of quantum discord and quantum geometric discord in terms of…

Monogamy properties of quantum and classical correlations

- Physics
- 2011

In contrast with entanglement, as measured by concurrence, in general, quantum discord does not possess the property of monogamy; that is, there is no tradeoff between the quantum discord shared by a…

Quantum Discord Preservation for Two Quantum-Correlated Qubits in Two Independent Reserviors

- Physics
- 2018

We investigate the dynamics of quantum discord using an exactly solvable model where two qubits coupled to independent thermal environments. The quantum discord is employed as a non-classical…

Quantum discord for qubit–qudit systems

- Physics
- 2012

We present two formulae to calculate quantum discord, a kind of quantum correlation, between a qubit and a second party of arbitrary dimension d. The first formula is the original entropic definition…
