Quantum state estimation with informationally overcomplete measurements

  title={Quantum state estimation with informationally overcomplete measurements},
  author={Huangjun Zhu},
  journal={Physical Review A},
We study informationally overcomplete measurements for quantum state estimation so as to clarify their tomographic significance as compared with minimal informationally complete measurements. We show that informationally overcomplete measurements can improve the tomographic efficiency significantly over minimal measurements when the states of interest have high purities. Nevertheless, the efficiency is still too limited to be satisfactory with respect to figures of merit based on monotone… Expand

Informationally Overcomplete POVMs for Quantum State Estimation and Binary Detection.
It is well-known in classical frame theory that overcomplete representations of a given vector space provide robustness to additive noise on the frame coefficients of an unknown vector. We describeExpand
Behavior of the maximum likelihood in quantum state tomography
Quantum state tomography on a d-dimensional system demands resources that grow rapidly with d. They may be reduced by using model selection to tailor the number of parameters in the model (i.e., theExpand
Machine learning pipeline for quantum state estimation with incomplete measurements
This paper creates a pipeline of stacked machine learning models for imputation, denoising, and state estimation for quantum state estimation from partial measurement results that outperforms previously developed machine-learning-based methods in reconstruction fidelity and several conventional methods in terms of resource scaling.

Tomographic and Lie algebraic significance of generalized symmetric informationally complete measurements
Generalized symmetric informationally complete (SIC) measurements are SIC measurements that are not necessarily rank 1. They are interesting originally because of their connection with rank-1 SICs.Expand
Robust error bars for quantum tomography
In quantum tomography, a quantum state or process is estimated from the results of measurements on many identically prepared systems. Tomography can never identify the state or process exactly. AnyExpand
