The face generated by a point, generalized affine constraints, and quantum theory

  journal={arXiv: Functional Analysis},
We analyze faces generated by points in an arbitrary convex set and their relative algebraic interiors, which are nonempty as we shall prove. We show that by intersecting a convex set with a sublevel or level set of a generalized affine functional, the dimension of the face generated by a point may decrease by at most one. We apply the results to the set of quantum states on a separable Hilbert space. Among others, we show that every state having finite expected values of any two (not… Expand

Minimum output entropy of a non-Gaussian quantum channel
We introduce a model of a non-Gaussian quantum channel that stems from the composition of two physically relevant processes occurring in open quantum systems, namely, amplitude damping and dephasing.Expand

Continuous Ensembles and the Capacity of Infinite-Dimensional Quantum Channels
This paper is devoted to the study of $\chi$-capacity, closely related to the classical capacity of infinite-dimensional quantum channels. For such channels generalized ensembles are defined asExpand
Convergence Rates for Quantum Evolution and Entropic Continuity Bounds in Infinite Dimensions
By extending the concept of energy-constrained diamond norms, we obtain continuity bounds on the dynamics of both closed and open quantum systems in infinite dimensions, which are stronger thanExpand

It is shown how the regularized, energy-constrained coherent information is equal to the capacity for the first two tasks and is an achievable rate for the latter two tasks, whenever the energy observable satisfies the Gibbs condition of having a well-defined thermal state for all temperatures and the channel satisfies a finite output-entropy condition.

Operator E-norms and their use
We consider a family of norms (called operator E -norms) on the algebraB(H) of all bounded operators on a separable Hilbert space H induced by a positive densely defined operator G on H. Each norm ofExpand
Energy-constrained diamond norm with applications to the uniform continuity of continuous variable channel capacities
The channels, and more generally superoperators acting on the trace class operators of a quantum system naturally form a Banach space under the completely bounded trace norm (aka diamond norm).Expand

Quantum state majorization at the output of bosonic Gaussian channels.
It is proved that every output state of a phase-insensitive Gaussian channel is majorized by the output state corresponding to a coherent input, and that coherent states are the unique optimizers for the minimization of strictly concave output functionals. Expand
