### Is there a CPTP map that takes $\rho_{AB}$ to $\rho_A\otimes\rho_B$?

Given some joint state $\rho_{AB}$, one can find either the marginal state $\rho_A$ or the marginal state $\rho_B$ through a CPTP map. The proof being that partial tracing is indeed CPTP. Is a CPTP ...

### Does Neumark's/Naimark's extension theorem only apply to rank-1 POVMs?

Starting with the definitions used. A PVM is a set $\mathcal{P} = \{P_i: P_i^2 = P_i, P_iP_j = \delta_{ij}P_j, \sum{P_i} = \mathbf{I}\}_{i,j=1}^n$, where $n\leq d$ on a Hilbert space $\mathcal{H}^d$ ...

### How to splice Hamiltonians corresponding to channels $\Phi_1$ and $\Phi_2$ so as to obtain a Hamiltonian corresponding to $\Phi_2\circ\Phi_1$?

Suppose I have two quantum channels $\Phi_1:B(\mathcal{H}_1)\rightarrow B(\mathcal{H}_2)$ and $\Phi_2:B(\mathcal{H}_2)\rightarrow B(\mathcal{H}_3)$, and let $\Phi=\Phi_2\circ \Phi_1$. Stinespring ...

### How is the surface of a Bloch sphere a Hilbert space?

In the linear algebra section of the Qiskit textbook appears the following claim regarding the Bloch sphere: The surface of this sphere, along with the inner product between qubit state vectors, is a ...

### What is the actual Hilbert space of a $N$-qubit system?

This question seems slightly naive. The Hilbert pace of any 2-level quantum system is given by the Bloch sphere and the algebra of observables arises from $SU(2)$, the Lie group generated by the three ...

### With $\vert\Psi^+\rangle$ the Bell state, can $\sqrt{\rho}\vert\Psi^+\rangle\langle\Psi^+\vert\sqrt{\rho}$ be simplified?

Let $\vert\Psi^+\rangle_{AB} = \frac{1}{\sqrt n}\sum_{i=1}^n\vert i\rangle_A\vert i\rangle_B$ be the maximally entangled state in Hilbert space $\mathcal{H}(AB)$ and $\rho_A$ be some state in Hilbert ...

### unitary that transforms one Hilbert space to another Hilbert space

Let $H = A \otimes B$. If there exists a unitary operator $U$ that transforms the Hilbert space $H$ into another Hilbert space $H' = A' \otimes B'$ (meaning that $U$ maps each basis of $H$ to each ...
