We show that the frequency distribution of the first significant digits of the numbers in the data sets generated from a large class of measures of quantum correlations, which are either entanglement measures or belong to the information-theoretic paradigm, exhibit a universal behavior. In particular, for Haar uniformly simulated arbitrary two-qubit states, we find that the first-digit distributions corresponding to a collection of chosen computable quantum correlation quantifiers tend to…

Quantum discord and its allies: a review of recent progress.
We review concepts and methods associated with quantum discord and related topics. We also describe their possible connections with other aspects of quantum information and beyond, including quantum
The Newcomb-Benford law: Scale invariance and a simple Markov process based on it
The Newcomb–Benford law, also known as the first-digit law, gives the probability distribution associated with the first digit of a dataset, so that, for example, the first significant digit has a


Quantum discord and the power of one qubit.
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.
Quantum discord for two-qubit systems
Quantum discord, as introduced by Olliver and Zurek [Phys. Rev. Lett. 88, 017901 (2001)], is a measure of the discrepancy between two natural yet different quantum analogs of the classical mutual
Geometric measure of entanglement and applications to bipartite and multipartite quantum states
The degree to which a pure quantum state is entangled can be characterized by the distance or angle to the nearest unentangled state. This geometric measure of entanglement, already present in a
Three qubits can be entangled in two inequivalent ways
Invertible local transformations of a multipartite system are used to define equivalence classes in the set of entangled states. This classification concerns the entanglement properties of a single
Local versus nonlocal information in quantum-information theory: Formalism and phenomena
In spite of many results in quantum information theory, the complex nature of compound systems is far from clear. In general the information is a mixture of local and nonlocal ('quantum')
Conservation law for distributed entanglement of formation and quantum discord
We present a direct relation, based upon a monogamic principle, between entanglement of formation (EOF) and quantum discord (QD), showing how they are distributed in an arbitrary tripartite pure
Benford's law gives better scaling exponents in phase transitions of quantum XY models.
This work detects the zero-temperature quantum phase transition in the one-dimensional anisotropic quantum XY models in a transverse magnetic field and finds that its method gives better finite-size scaling exponents for the critical point than many other known scaling exp components using measurable quantities like magnetization, entanglement, and quantum discord.
Hierarchies of geometric entanglement
We introduce a class of generalized geometric measures of entanglement. For pure quantum states of $N$ elementary subsystems, they are defined as the distances from the sets of $K$-separable states
Quantum discord: a measure of the quantumness of correlations.
This work shows that absence of entanglement does not imply classicality, and considers the vanishing of discord as a criterion for the preferred effectively classical states of a system, i.e., the pointer states.
Robustness of quantum discord to sudden death
We calculate the dissipative dynamics of two-qubit quantum discord under Markovian environments. We analyze various dissipative channels such as dephasing, depolarizing, and generalized amplitude
