Does the quantum relative entropy have a direct operational interpretation?

Consider the quantum relative entropy, defined as $$D(\rho\|\sigma) = \operatorname{tr}(\rho\log\rho)-\operatorname{tr}(\rho\log\sigma),$$ for all $\rho,\sigma\ge0$ such that $\operatorname{im}(\rho)\...

How to calculate relative entropy of coherence?

Relative entropy of coherence for a density matrix p is defined as follow $C(p)=S(p_{diag})-S(p)$ Where S is the von neumann entropy. for more info check the link (look at the section result) I know ...

How can $\chi(\hat{A},\hat{B}:C) \le \chi(\hat{A},B:C)$ be true?

The holevo information of $\rho_{ABC}$ w.r.t to measurements on A and B (for the sake of this we'll assume local measurements suffice), is given by $$\chi(\hat{A},\hat{B}:C)$$ where $\hat{A}$ and $\...

Which quantum entropies are meaningful with respect to continuous distributions of states?

When using a quantum channel to transmit classical information, we consider an ensemble $\mathcal{E} = \{(\rho_x, p(x))\}$ consisting of states $\rho_x$ labelled with a symbol $x$ from a finite ...

Find the minimal and maximal of $\widehat{S}_f (\rho \| U^* \sigma U)$

I have been study the minimal (maximal) of a $f-$divergence. Fumio Hiai introduced the $\widehat{S}_f (\rho \| \sigma)$ divergence in his article. $$\widehat{S}_f (\rho \| \sigma) := \text{Tr} \sigma^{...
