Theoretical framework for quantum networks

  title={Theoretical framework for quantum networks},
  author={Giulio Chiribella and Giacomo Mauro D’Ariano and Paolo Perinotti},
  journal={Physical Review A},
We present a framework to treat quantum networks and all possible transformations thereof, including as special cases all possible manipulations of quantum states, measurements, and channels, such as, e.g., cloning, discrimination, estimation, and tomography. Our framework is based on the concepts of quantum comb---which describes all transformations achievable by a given quantum network---and link product---the operation of connecting two quantum networks. Quantum networks are treated both… 

Composition rules for quantum processes: a no-go theorem

This work shows that under very basic assumptions such a composition rule does not exist, which means that a Shannon theory of general quantum processes will not possess a natural rule for the composition of resources.

Causal Structures and the Classification of Higher Order Quantum Computations

A formal language is provided to form all possible types of transformations, and it is used to prove general structure theorems for transformations in the hierarchy, and a mathematical characterisation of the set of maps from combs to combs is provided, hinting at a route for the completeCharacterisation of maps in the Hierarchy.

Quantum Network Discrimination

This work studies the discrimination of quantum networks and its fundamental limitations, and discusses the available classes of strategies when considering n copies of a superchannel and fundamental bounds on the asymptotically achievable rates in an asymmetric discrimination setting.

Fundamental limitations on distillation of quantum channel resources

This work establishes universal limitations on the processing of both quantum states and channels, expressed in the form of no-go theorems and quantitative bounds for the manipulation of general quantum channel resources under the most general transformation protocols.

(Causal)-Activation of Complex Entanglement Structures in Quantum Networks

A novel generation scheme exhibiting two attractive features, namely, deterministically generating genuinely multipartite entangled states without requiring any direct interaction between the qubits, is designed.

Resource theory of asymmetric distinguishability for quantum channels

Two special cases of the general channel box transformation problem, known as distinguishability distillation and dilution, are considered, and it is proved that the exact distinguishability cost is equal to the channel max-relative entropy and the distillable distinguishability isequal to the amortized channel relative entropy.

Universal control of quantum processes using sector-preserving channels

The standard notion of control is extended to more general notions, including control of multiple channels with possibly different input and output systems, and a theoretical framework, called supermaps on routed channels, which provides a compact representation of coherent control as an operation performed on the extended channels.

Experimental computational advantage from superposition of multiple temporal orders of quantum gates

This is the first observation of a quantum superposition of more than 2 temporal orders, and also demonstrates its usefulness for efficient phase-estimation.

Quantum switch of quantum switches

Recent results have shown that quantum theory is compatible with novel causal structures where events happen without a definite causal order. In particular, the quantum switch describes a process in

No-Go Theorems for Quantum Resource Purification: New Approach and Channel Theory

A novel and powerful method is developed for analyzing the limitations of quantum resource purification, which not only leads to improved bounds that rule out exact purification for a broader range of noisy states and are tight in certain cases, but also allow us to establish a no-purification theory for quantum channel (dynamical) resources.
