### Two qubit state + Depolarizing channel = Bell diagonal state?

In multiple sources, e.g. RGK, KGR, it is stated (without proof) that if you take any two qubit state and send it through a depolarizing channel, the resulting state would be a Bell-diagonal state. ...

### What are the possible results of measuring $X$ and $Z$ on the state $|01\rangle+|10\rangle$?

When calculating the probability of getting +1 on X-basis on the first qubit of Bell's state $|01\rangle+|10\rangle$, the result is 1/2 with the state after measurement |++⟩ while the probability of ...

### Can the following Bell states have probability amplitudes other than 1/2 and still be entangled?

From my understanding, a qubit is entangled when the state of one qubit depends on the other, and vice versa. Can the following bell states have probability amplitudes other than 1/2 and still be ...

### Bell state preparation

I was watching some lectures on qubits. They were talking about how to generate a Bell state. They described it as follows: Prepare state 00: $$\left |0 \right> \otimes \left |0 \right>$$ Apply ...

### How does Bell measurement work in the teleportation?

I'm a complete beginner and one of the first things I was taught was the teleportation protocol. In the protocol, the party sending its state (which we call say $|\phi\rangle$) makes a Bell ...

### What is the representative matrix for a measurement in the Bell-state basis?

I have a few questions about measurement in Bell-state basis. In particular, if $Z = \begin{bmatrix} 1 & 0\\ 0 & -1 \end{bmatrix}$ is for a measurement on the computational basis, then what ...

### Fidelity With Bell State Calculation

Let's say I have the following state: $$|\psi\rangle = \sqrt{\frac{2}{3}} |0000\rangle_{a_1b_1a_2b_2} + \sqrt{\frac{1}{6}} \big( |0011\rangle_{a_1b_1a_2b_2} + |1100\rangle_{a_1b_1a_2b_2} \big).$$ I ...

### Creating Bell states (a question from tutorial) [closed]

I was going through a Quantum Computation lecture series on YouTube given by Umesh Vazirani. There in Lecture 6.3 he talks about creating a Bell state using a Hadamard and CNOT gate. He seems to be ...
### Projecting $\lvert ++ \rangle$ on Bell Basis
I understand that, projecting $\lvert 00\rangle$ on the Bell states would produce $\lvert\Phi^+\rangle$. Because,  CNOT(H\lvert0\rangle \otimes \lvert0\rangle) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}(\lvert00\rangle +...
