Resource Preservability

  title={Resource Preservability},
  author={Chung-Yun Hsieh},
Resource theory is a general, model-independent approach aiming to understand the qualitative notion of resource quantitatively. In a given resource theory, free operations are physical processes that do not create the resource and are considered zero-cost. This brings the following natural question: For a given free operation, what is its ability to preserve a resource? We axiomatically formulate this ability as the resource preservability, which is constructed as a channel resource theory…

Communication, Dynamical Resource Theory, and Thermodynamics
This work studies classical communication scenarios constrained by a given resource, and shows that the one-shot classical capacity is upper bounded by resource preservability, which is a measure of the ability to preserve the resource.
Resource-Constrained Classical Communication
It is found that the smallest bath size needed to thermalize all outputs of a Gibbs-preserving coherence-annihilating channel upper bounds its non-signaling assisted one-shot classical capacity, which bridges classical communication and thermodynamics.
Tight constraints on probabilistic convertibility of quantum states
We develop two general approaches to characterising the manipulation of quantum states by means of probabilistic protocols constrained by the limitations of some quantum resource theory. First, we
Probabilistic Transformations of Quantum Resources.
This work introduces a new resource monotone that obeys a very strong type of monotonicity that can rule out all transformations, probabilistic or deterministic, between states in any quantum resource theory, and strengthens previous findings and extends recent no-go theorems.
Entanglement preserving local thermalization
We investigate whether entanglement can survive the thermalization of subsystems. We present two equivalent formulations of this problem: (1) Can two isolated agents, accessing only pre-shared
Thermodynamic Criterion of Transmitting Classical Information
It is shown that work extraction tasks can witness general resources of dynamics, providing the first thermodynamic interpretation of a broad class of channel resources, and suggests thatWork extraction is closely related to resource theories of channels.
Dynamical resource theory of quantum coherence
This work introduces four different types of free superch channels (analogous to MIO, DIO, IO, and SIO) and discusses in detail two of them, namely, dephasing-covariant incoherent superchannels (DISC) and maximally incoherentsuperchannel (MISC).
Quantifying Quantumness of Channels Without Entanglement
Quantum channels breaking entanglement, incompatibility, or nonlocality are defined as such because they are not useful for entanglement-based, one-sided device-independent, or device-independent
Quantifying entanglement preservability of experimental processes
Preserving entanglement is a crucial dynamical process for entanglement-based quantum computation and quantum-information processes, such as one-way quantum computing and quantum key distribution.
Fundamental limits on concentrating and preserving tensorized quantum resources
It is shown that if a resource measure satisfies the tensorization property as well as the monotonicity, it is impossible to concentrate multiple noisy copies into a single better resource by free operations.


Quantifying Resources in General Resource Theory with Catalysts.
This work shows that, in a general resource-theoretic framework that allows the use of free states as catalysts, the amount of "resources" contained in a given state, in the asymptotic scenario, is equal to the regularized relative entropy of a resource of that state.
Resource Destroying Maps.
This Letter proposes a general scheme for analyzing resource theories based on resource destroying maps, and defines a class of simple resource measures that can be calculated without optimization, and that are monotone nonincreasing under operations that commute with the resource destroying map.
Reversible Framework for Quantum Resource Theories.
The general structure of QRTs is discussed, and it is shown that under a few assumptions, a QRT is asymptotically reversible if its set of allowed operations is maximal, that is, if the allowed operations are the set of all operations that do not generate (asymptotical) a resource.
Quantum resource theories in the single-shot regime
One of the main goals of any resource theory such as entanglement, quantum thermodynamics, quantum coherence, and asymmetry, is to find necessary and sufficient conditions (NSC) that determine
Resource theories of knowledge
The extended framework introduced here enables us to formalize new tasks in the language of resource theories, ranging from tomography, cryptography, thermodynamics and foundational questions, both within and beyond quantum theory.
Resource theory of coherence: Beyond states
We generalize the recently proposed resource theory of coherence (or superposition) [Baumgratz, Cramer & Plenio, Phys. Rev. Lett. 113:140401; Winter & Yang, Phys. Rev. Lett. 116:120404] to the
One-Shot Operational Quantum Resource Theory.
This work analyzes, from a resource-nonspecific standpoint, the optimal efficiency of resource formation and distillation tasks with only a single copy of the given quantum state, thereby establishing a unified framework of one-shot quantum resource manipulation.
Quantifying Bell: the Resource Theory of Nonclassicality of Common-Cause Boxes
This work proves that the set of free operations forms a polytope, which allows us to derive an efficient algorithm for deciding whether one resource can be converted to another, and defines two distinct monotones with simple closed-form expressions in the two-party binary-setting binary-outcome scenario, and reveals various properties of the pre-order of resources.
Operational resource theory of quantum channels
This Letter proposes a general resource framework for quantum channels and introduces resource monotones based on general distance quantifiers of channels, and studies the interplay between channel and state resource theories by relating resourceMonotones of a quantum channel to its manipulation power of the state resource.
We review the basic idea behind resource theories, where we quantify quantum resources by specifying a restricted class of operations. This divides the state space into various sets, including states
