How to calculate Quantum Discord for two qubit system using Qutip?

Quantum discord of a bipartite system can be determined as: $${D_A}({\rho _{AB}}) = I({\rho _{AB}}) - {J_A}({\rho _{AB}}),$$ The subscript of $A$ denotes that the measurement has been performed on the ...

What are examples where the quantum discord is achieved by a non-projective POVM?

Consider the (asymmetric) quantum discord, defined as (borrowing notation from Eq. 4.13c of Zurek's review): $$\mathcal D(\mathcal S:\mathcal A) = I(\mathcal S:\mathcal A) - \chi(\rho_{\mathcal A}),$$ ...

Can't understand how $D_{A,B} + D_{A,C} \ge E_{A,B}+E_{A,C}$ is proved used the subadditivity of entropy

I am reading Monogamy properties of quantum and classical correlations. Eq.10 states that $$D_{A,B} + D_{A,C} \ge E_{A,B}+E_{A,C},$$ where $D_{i,j}$ is the quantum discord, and $E_{A,B}$ is the ...

What does a quantum mutual information larger than its classical upper bound represent?

Let $\rho$ be a bipartite state. Its quantum mutual information is defined as $$\newcommand{\tr}{\operatorname{tr}}I(\rho) = S(\tr_B(\rho)) + S(\tr_A(\rho)) - S(\rho),$$ where $S(\sigma)$ is the von ...
