Geometric reasoning demonstrates the conditions, necessary and sufficient, for saturating the fundamental and attainable quantum-process bound in this context.

Estimation of Semi-Empirical Mass Formula Coefficients

Using linear least squares method and by data of atomic mass, the present study calculates the coefficients of volume, surface, Coulomb, and asymmetry terms in semi-empirical formula. Our findings

Studies on the Role of Entanglement in Mixed-state Quantum Computation

In this thesis, I look at the role of quantum entanglement in mixed-state quantum computation. The model we consider is the DQC1 or `power of one qubit' model. I show that there is minimal bipartite

Minimal Informationally Complete Measurements for Pure States

We consider measurements, described by a positive-operator-valued measure (POVM), whose outcome probabilities determine an arbitrary pure state of a D-dimensional quantum system. We call such a
