Majorizing Measures for the Optimizer [article]

Sander Borst, Daniel Dadush, Neil Olver, Makrand Sinha
2020 arXiv   pre-print
A major reason for this difficulty was considered to be theory of majorizing measures itself, which had the reputation of being opaque and mysterious.  ...  This also allows for efficiently computing the measure using off-the-shelf methods from convex optimization. (2) We obtain tree-based upper and lower bound certificates by rounding, in a series of steps  ...  For this purpose, some of the earlier concepts, in particular, majorizing measures, will be central to the exposition.  ...

An optimal measurement strategy to beat the quantum uncertainty in correlated system [article]

Jun-Li Li, Cong-Feng Qiao
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we propose a practical method to reduce the one party measurement uncertainty by determining the measurement on the other party of an entangled bipartite system.  ...  In light of this method, a family of conditional majorization uncertainty relations in the presence of quantum memory is constructed, which is applicable to arbitrary number of observables.  ...  For measurement X the optimal measurement X is given by maximizing the following , and the optimal measurement is For cos θ t ∈ [0, 1] , tan θ r = tan θ t sin(2ξ) and θ r = θ t .  ...

Also there is the problem of tyrannous majorities. If a whole series of decisions is made by majority rule, there is the danger that a minority may contain the same people for each decision.  ...  With no clear consensus as to the optimal decisions, majority rule has a certain norma- tive appeal as a compromise. Majority rule also appeals to egalitarian instincts.  ...
