The Multi-round Process Matrix

  title={The Multi-round Process Matrix},
  author={Timoth'ee Hoffreumon and O. Oreshkov},
We develop an extension of the process matrix (PM) framework for correlations between quantum operations with no causal order that allows multiple rounds of information exchange for each party compatibly with the assumption of well-defined causal order of events locally. We characterise the higher-order process describing such correlations, which we name the multi-round process matrix (MPM), and formulate a notion of causal nonseparability for it that extends the one for standard PMs. We show… Expand

Experimental Entanglement of Temporal Orders.
The study of causal relations, a cornerstone of physics, has recently been applied to the quantum realm, leading to the discovery that not all quantum processes have a definite causal structure.Expand
Quantum Causal Models.
It is known that the classical framework of causal models is not general enough to allow for causal reasoning about quantum systems. Efforts have been devoted towards generalization of the classicalExpand
Reversible dynamics with closed time-like curves and freedom of choice
This work characterisation to an arbitrary number of regions of spacetime finds that there exist several inequivalent processes that can only arise due to non-trivial time travel, which supports the view that complex dynamics is possible in the presence of CTCs, compatible with free choice of local operations and free of inconsistencies.

Causal Structures and the Classification of Higher Order Quantum Computations
Quantum operations are the most widely used tool in the theory of quantum information processing, representing elementary transformations of quantum states that are composed to form complex quantumExpand
Resource theories of communication with quantum superpositions of processes
It is shown that the communication paradigms introduced in the first six references above are compatible with such a resource-theoretic framework, while the counterexamples proposed in [Guerin et al., Phys. Rev. A 99, 062317 (2019)] create side-channels. Expand
Since at most T of these equations can come from (7), at least (m T) of them come from (8’). Thus, for the distribution (PI’, . . . , p,‘), at most T of the probabilities are nonzero. The proof ofExpand
