@article{Holevo2020TheIC, title={The information capacity of entanglement-assisted continuous variable quantum measurement}, author={Alexander S. Holevo and Anastasia A. Kuznetsova}, journal={Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical}, year={2020}, volume={53} }

The present paper is devoted to the investigation of the entropy reduction and entanglement-assisted classical capacity (information gain) of continuous variable quantum measurements. These quantities are computed explicitly for multimode Gaussian measurement channels. For this we establish a fundamental property of the entropy reduction of a measurement: under a restriction on the second moments of the input state it is maximized by a Gaussian state (providing an analytical expression for the…

Fundamental limitations to key distillation from Gaussian states with Gaussian operations

For a wide class of Gaussian states that includes all two-mode states, this work proves a recently proposed conjecture on the equality between $E_{F,2}^{\mathrm{\scriptscriptstyle G}}$ and the Gaussian intrinsic entanglement, thus endowing both measures with a more solid operational meaning.
