A Note on the Measure of Discord [article]

George J. Klir, Behzad Parviz
2013 arXiv   pre-print
A new entropy-like measure as well as a new measure of total uncertainty pertaining to the Dempster-Shafer theory are introduced.  ...  It is argued that these measures are better justified than any of the previously proposed candidates.  ...  While it may be argued that subadditivity is not essential in this case, we have not been able to fmd any way to A Note on the Measure of Discord 139 justify this argument.  ...

Super Quantum Discord and Inferior "Geometric Discord" Based on Weak Measurement in Noninertial Frames

Maohuai Xiang, Jiliang Jing
2014 Journal of Quantum Information Science  
However, we note that the geometric discord based on the weak measurements becomes smaller, so we name it inferior "geometric discord".  ...  Instead of projective measurement, we use weak measurement to define quantum and geometric discords, and compare them with the normal quantum and geometric discords based on the projective measurement  ...  A A A w R P x R P x S R P x p x S p x S ρ ρ − = + − Similarly, we also can define the geometric discord by using the weak measurement to perform on the subsystem A of the state AR ρ .  ...

2015 Optics Express  
In this paper, we study how quantum discord, or more specifically, the measures of entropic discord and geometric discord are affected by the influence of amplitude damping decoherence.  ...  However, it is now known that some quantum features may be acheived with quantum discord, a generalized measure of quantum correlation.  ...  Note that a symmetric discord has been proposed in order to ensure the symmetry [21] .  ...

Problem with geometric discord

M. Piani
2012 Physical Review A. Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics  
On the other hand it is known that the standard, mutual-information based discord does not suffer this problem; a simplified proof of such a fact is given.  ...  Lett. 105, 190502 (2010)] is not a good measure for the quantumness of correlations, as it can increase even under trivial local reversible operations of the party whose classicality/non-classicality is  ...  This note was completed during a visit to the National Quantum Information Centre (KCIK) in Gdańsk, whose hospitality is gratefully acknowledged.

2019 Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical  
This paper analyzes the properties of diagonal discord, a simplified version of discord that compares quantum mutual information with the mutual information revealed by a measurement that correspond to  ...  Quantum discord measures quantum correlation by comparing the quantum mutual information with the maximal amount of mutual information accessible to a quantum measurement.  ...  Sampling symmetric X-states In section 6, we intend to compare the values of diagonal discord and ordinary (optimized) discord of some generic class of states.  ...

No energy transport without discord [article]

Seth Lloyd, Zi-Wen Liu, Stefano Pirandola, Vazrik Chiloyan, Yongjie Hu, Samuel Huberman, Gang Chen
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We report the results of a measurement of the increase in discord due to nanoscale heat flow across an aluminum-sapphire interface and find it to be 4.28 × 10^24 bits m^-2 K^-1 s^-1.  ...  We show that the rate of heat transfer between two quantum systems at different temperatures is directly proportional to the instantaneous rate of increase of diagonal/energetic discord between the systems  ...  Note that the experiment is not a test of a theoretical prediction, but instead a direct measurement of discord based on the theory.  ...

Linking Quantum Discord to Entanglement in a Measurement

Alexander Streltsov, Hermann Kampermann, Dagmar Bruß
2011 Physical Review Letters  
We generalize the results to multipartite measurements on a part of the system and on the total system.  ...  We show that a von Neumann measurement on a part of a composite quantum system unavoidably creates distillable entanglement between the measurement apparatus and the system if the state has nonzero quantum  ...  If we consider bipartite quantum states ρ AB , and von Neumann measurements on A with a complete set of orthogonal rank one projectors Π A i = |i A i A |, i Π A i = 1 1 A , then the quantum discord is  ...

Minimum disturbance rewards with maximum possible classical correlations

Varad R. Pande, Anil Shaji
2017 Physics Letters A  
Weak measurements done on a subsystem of a bipartite system having both classical and nonClassical correlations between its components can potentially reveal information about the other subsystem with  ...  We use weak quantum discord and the fidelity between the initial bipartite state and the state after measurement to construct a cost function that accounts for both the amount of information revealed about  ...  behaviour of discord and discord-like measures when the measurements on one or both subsystems were restricted to weak quantum measurements [9, 10] .  ...

Weak measurements and nonClassical correlations [article]

Lekshmi S, N Shaji, Anil Shaji
2015 arXiv   pre-print
We extend the definition of quantum discord as a quantifier of nonClassical correlations in a quantum state to the case where weak measurements are performed on subsystem A of a bipartite system AB.  ...  Weak quantum discord reduces to discord in the appropriate limits as well. We also discuss the implications of these observations on the interpretations of quantum discord.  ...  Apart from noting that the values of D w are more sharply clustered around D for larger values of α we also note that on an average the weak quantum discord is lesser than the normal quantum discord by  ...

Witnessed entanglement and the geometric measure of quantum discord

Tiago Debarba, Thiago O. Maciel, Reinaldo O. Vianna
2012 Physical Review A. Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics  
In particular, we prove a relation between negativity and geometric discord in the Hilbert-Schmidt norm, which is slightly different from a previous conjectured one [Phys. Rev.  ...  A 84, 052110 (2011)].We also show that, redefining the geometric discord with the trace norm, better bounds can be obtained. We illustrate our results numerically.  ...  This notion of quantumness beyond entanglement is captured by the quantum discord, which is defined as all the correlations contained in a state but the classical ones [7] , or as a measure of disturbance  ...
