Questions tagged [games]

For games or puzzles which utilize the principles of quantum mechanics. This includes (but is not limited to) non-local games, which are cooperative games of incomplete information, include strategies that make use of entanglement, outperforming all possible classical strategies. Non-local games were introduced by Cleve et.al in 2004. (arXiv:quant-ph/0404076)

Why is $P(1,2)_{\text{same}} = \frac{1}{4}$ and not $\frac{1}{2}$ in Preskill's Bell experiment?

Context: Three coins on the table. Each is either heads or tails. You can uncover any one of the three coins, revealing whether it is heads or tails but then you choose two the other two coins ...

Optimal strategy to a quantum state game

Consider the following game: I flip a fair coin, and depending on the outcome (either heads/tails), I'll give you one of the following states: $$|0\rangle \text{ or } \cos(x)|0\rangle + \sin(x)|1\...

Proof of optimality for CHSH game classical strategy

I'm aware that the optimality of the quantum strategy for the CHSH game is given by Tsirelson's bound, but presentations all skip over the (admittedly much less interesting) proof of the classical ...

Are correlations stronger than those allowed by quantum mechanics possible?

We know how a quantum correlation setup can help us with a better probability of winning games like the CHSH. But what is the upper bound that physics can allow? Is it the quantum correlation setup? ...

Has anyone analyzed multi-round nonlocal games?

The traditional definition of a nonlocal game is restricted to having two players and one round (e.g., here), but it is natural to consider a more general class of games that may have more than two ...
