FOURIER INSTITUT i f Geometry on the set of quantum states and quantum correlations Dominique Spehner Institut Fourier et Laboratoire de Physique et Mod´elisation des Milieux Condens´es, Grenoble Short course, GSI’2015, ´Ecole Polytechnique, Paris, 28/10/2015     Quantum Correlations & Quantum Information ™ Quantum Information Theory (QIT) studies quantum systems that can perform information-processing tasks more efficiently than one can do with classical systems: - computational tasks (e.g. factorizing into prime numbers) - quantum communication (e.g. quantum cryptography, ...)  A quantum computer works with qubits, i.e. two-level quantum systems in linear combinations of |0y and |1y.  Entanglement is a resource for quan- tum computation and communication [Bennett et al. ’96, Josza & Linden ’03] However, other kinds of “quantum correlations” differing from entanglement could also explain the quantum efficiencies.

(2) States ρ are non-negative operators on H with trace one. (3) Observables A are self-adjoint operators on H (in this talk: A € MatpC, nq finite Hermitian matrices) (4) An evolution is given by a linear map Φ : MatpC, nq Ñ MatpC, nq which is (TP) trace preserving (so that trpΦpρqq  trpρq  1) (CP) Completely Positive, i.e. for any integer d ¥ 1 and any d ¢d matrix pAijqd i,j1 ¥ 0 with elements Aij € MatpC, nq, one has pΦpAijqqd i,j1 ¥ 0. Special case: unitary evolution Φpρq  U ρ U¦ with U unitary.     Pure and mixed quantum states  A pure state is a rank-one projector ρψ  |ψyxψ| with |ψy € H, }ψ}  1 (actually, |ψy belongs to the projective space PH). The set EpHq of all quantum states is a convex cone. Its extremal elements are the pure states.  A mixed state is a non-pure state. It has infinitely many pure state decompositions ρ  ¸ i pi|ψiyxψi|, with pi ¥ 0, ° i pi  1 and |ψiy € PH. Statistical interpretation: the pure states |ψiy have been prepared with probability pi.

It has Hilbert space HAB  HA ˜HB. For instance, A and B can be the polarizations of two photons localized far from each other ñ HAB C2 ˜C2 (2 qubits):  A pure state |Ψy of AB is separable if it is a product state |Ψy  |ψy˜|φy with |ψy € PHA and |φy € PHB.  A mixed state ρ is separable if it admits a pure state decomposition ρ  ° i pi|ΨiyxΨi| with |Ψiy  |ψiy ˜ |φiy separable for all i.     Entangled states  Nonseparable states are called entangled. Entanglement is ãÑ the most specific feature of Quantum Mechanics. ãÑ used as a resource in Quantum Information (e.g. quantum cryptography, teleportation, high precision interferometry...).  Examples of entangled & separable states: let HA HB C2 (qubits) with canonical basis t|0y, |1yu. The pure states |Ψ¨ Belly  1c 2 ¡ |0 ˜0y¨|1 ˜1y © are maximally entangled. ãÑ lead to the maximal violation of the Bell inequalities observed experimentally [Aspect et al ’82] ñnonlocality of QM In contrast, the mixed state ρ  1 2 |Ψ  BellyxΨ  Bell| 1 2 |Ψ¡ BellyxΨ¡ Bell| is separable ! (indeed, ρ  1 2 |0 ˜0yx0 ˜0|  1 2 |1 ˜1yx1 ˜1|).  
Classical states  A state ρ of AB is classical if it has a spectral decomposition ρ  ° k pk|ΨkyxΨk| with product u states |Ψky  |αky˜|βky. Classicality is equivalent to separability for pure states only.  A state ρ is A-classical if ρ  ° i qi|αiyxαi|˜ρB|i with t|αiyu orthonormal basis of HA and ρB|i arbitrary states of B.  The set CAB (resp. CA) of all (A-)classical states is not convex. Its convex hull is the set of separable states SAB. ρ CA C ABS CAB B  Some tasks impossible to do clas- sically can be realized using sepa- rable non-classical mixed states.  Such states are easier to produce and presumably more robust to a coupling with an environment.     Quantum vs classical correlations  Central question in Quantum Information theory: identify (and try to protect) the Quantum Correlations responsible for the exponential speedup of quantum algorithms. classical correlations quantum correlations  For mixed states, two (at least) kinds of QCs Õ entanglement [Schr¨odinger ’36] × nonclassicality (quantum discord) [Ollivier, Zurek ’01, Henderson, Vedral ’01]  
Outlines Entangled and non-classical states  Contractive distances on the set of quantum states  
Contractive distances ρ φ(ρ) φ(σ) σ CONTRACTIVE DISTANCE  The set EAB of all quantum states of a bipartite system AB (i.e. , operators ρ ¥ 0 on HAB with tr ρ  1) can be equipped with many distances d.  From a QI point of view, interesting distances must be contractive under CPTP maps, i.e. for any such map Φ on EAB, d ρ, σ € EAB, dpΦpρq, Φpσqq ¤ dpρ, σq Physically: irreversible evolutions can only decrease the distance between two states.  A contractive distance is in particular unitarily invariant, i.e. dpUρU¦, UσU¦q  dpρ, σq for any unitary U on HAB  The Lp -distances dppρ, σq  }ρ ¡σ}p  ptr |ρ ¡σ|p q1{p are not contractive excepted for p  1 (trace distance) [Ruskai ’94].
