@article{Bradler2010TradeoffCO, title={Trade-off capacities of the quantum Hadamard channels}, author={Kamil Bradler and Patrick M. Hayden and Dave Touchette and Mark M. Wilde}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2010}, volume={abs/1001.1732} }

Coding theorems in quantum Shannon theory express the ultimate rates at which a sender can transmit information over a noisy quantum channel. More often than not, the known formulas expressing these transmission rates are intractable, requiring an optimization over an infinite number of uses of the channel. Researchers have rarely found quantum channels with a tractable classical or quantum capacity, but when such a finding occurs, it demonstrates a complete understanding of that channel's…

Strong Converse Rates for Quantum Communication

- Computer ScienceIEEE Transactions on Information Theory
- 2017

It is established that the Rains information of any quantum channel is a strong converse rate for quantum communication, and it is shown that the fidelity vanishes exponentially fast as the number of channel uses increases; this remains true even if the authors consider codes that perform classical post-processing on the transmitted quantum data.

The quantum dynamic capacity formula of a quantum channel

- Computer ScienceQuantum Inf. Process.

This work proves the dynamic capacity theorem with an “ab initio” approach, using only the most basic tools in the quantum information theorist’s toolkit: the Alicki-Fannes’ inequality, the chain rule for quantum mutual information, elementary properties of quantum entropy, and the quantum data processing inequality.

Entanglement-Assisted Communication of Classical and Quantum Information

The main result is a capacity theorem that gives a 3-D achievable rate region that justifies the need for simultaneous coding of classical and quantum information over an EAQ channel.

Superadditivity in Trade-Off Capacities of Quantum Channels

This paper investigates the additivity phenomenon in the quantum dynamic capacity region of a quantum channel for trading the resources of classical communication, quantum communication, and entanglement and gives proof-of-principle requirements for these channels to exist.

Trade-off coding for universal qudit cloners motivated by the Unruh effect

- Computer Science

This work analyses the d-dimensional Unruh channel, a noisy quantum channel which emerges in relativistic quantum information theory and shows that this channel belongs to the class of quantum channels whose capacity region requires an optimization over a single channel use, and as such is tractable.

Transmitting Quantum Information Reliably across Various Quantum Channels

Potential Capacities of Quantum Channels

If a channel is noisy, however close it is to the noiseless channel, then it cannot be activated into the noisy channel by any other contextual channel; this conclusion holds for all the three capacities.

Channel covariance, twirling, contraction, and some upper bounds on the quantum capacity

Evaluating the quantum capacity of quantum channels is an important but difficult problem, even for channels of low input and output dimension. Smith and Smolin showed that the quantum capacity of…

Capacities of Quantum Amplifier Channels

- PhysicsArXiv
- 2016

The capacities of quantum-limited amplifier channels are established for one of the most general communication tasks, characterized by the trade-off between classical communication, quantum communication, and entanglement generation or consumption and it is found that the capacities significantly outperform communication rates achieved with a naive time-sharing strategy.

Approaches for approximate additivity of the Holevo information of quantum channels

- Computer Science
- 2018

The notion of a generalized channel divergence is defined (which includes the diamond distance as an example), and it is proved that for jointly covariant channels these quantities are maximized by purifications of a state invariant under the covariance group.
