### Why we do SWAP operations for applying a mode N function in Shor algorithms and How we do this swapping? [duplicate]

I am working on implementing shor algorithm for finding prime factors of N = 15. I am trying to understand a code of qiskit, but i am confused how and why the code editor is using swap codes to define ...

### Inner product in terms of Hadamard and controlled SWAP gates

On p. 7 of this paper (https://arxiv.org/abs/2112.04958) it is claimed that: "For any two states $|φ\rangle$ and $|ψ\rangle$ with the same dimensions, the fidelity $F(|φ\rangle, |ψ\rangle)$ can ...

### Distributing entanglement using entanglement swapping

I've read papers that consider the problem of sharing entanglement between A and C with an intermediate B. A and B share an entangled state and so do B and C. Then, entanglement swapping is used to ...

### How Quickly Can We Entangle a Pair of Unentangled Qubits Without Using Pre-existing Entanglement?

The Set-Up Let's say we want to entangle two qubits $\phi_a,\phi_b$ (at locations $a$ and $b$ respectively) that are spatially separated by distance $d$ (in natural units) at a given instance of time. ...

### How to project on the $\phi^+$ basis when performing entanglement swapping?

I am working on entanglement swapping. Where there are three nodes, a source node, repeater node and a target node. Qubits 1 and 2 are entangled and are distributed between source node and repeater ...

### Swaps in a uniform superposition

Starting from a state $|00\rangle|01\rangle|10\rangle$ (from $0$ to $n$ without repetitions), I want to reach an state in which all possible combinations of swaps are in a uniform superposition. I ...

### What it means to say that SWAP gate has maximum operator entanglement entropy?

In this (freely available) article, just below equation 14, it says The SWAP operator has the maximum operator entanglement entropy... The operator entanglement entropy, denoted by $E(U)$ for an ...

### What would be the procedure if I wish to code entanglement swapping?

Most of the methods that I have seen in various papers all take single examples and then proceed to manually perform swapping by re-writing the states on a different basis and then performing a ...

### Clarification of a theorem mentioned in a paper on RED

I am reading a paper "A study of Teleportation and Super Dense Coding capacity in Remote Entangled Distribution" (arXiv:1210.1312). In this paper Relations on two-qubit pure states are ...

### Entanglement and teleportation transmission costs

Let say we have a product state $$|\phi^+\rangle_{12}|\phi^+\rangle_{34}$$ with particles (1,4) belong to $A$ and (2,3) belong to $B$. Where $A$ and $B$ are say at distance of $L$ from each other. ...

### Can pairwise entanglement be converted into tripartite correlations?

Suppose Alice shares $m$ pairs of maximally entangled states with Bob and $n$ pairs of maximally entangled states with Charlie. It is clear that by measuring their states, Alice can generate ...

### Entanglement Swapping Circuit

I implemented 2 versions of the entanglement swapping circuit in IBM Q. One is using classical measurement to control X, Z gates. Another is just us C-NOT and Controlled-Z. They should be equivalent. ...
