### Coherent information is a lower bound of channel capacity. What about coherent information based on Renyi entropies?

It is known that coherent information defined in terms of von Neumann entropies is a lower bound of quantum channel capacity. If we define coherent information in terms of $\alpha$-Renyi entropies, ...

### Why are all Rényi entropies equal for Clifford dynamics?

In this paper, by Adam Nahum et al., the authors trivially states that "For Clifford dynamics all Rényi entropies are equal ... " which is not trivial to me. Is there a paper or lecture ...

### Clarification about inverses in sandwiched Renyi divergence

The sandwiched Renyi divergence is defined as in $$\tilde{D}_\alpha(\rho\|\sigma):=\frac{1}{\alpha−1}\log tr[(\sigma^{\frac{1−\alpha}{2\alpha}}\rho \sigma^{\frac{1−\alpha}{2 \alpha }})^\alpha]$$ The ...

### Prove the additivity of the Renyi entropy: $H_{\beta}(p \times r) = H_{\beta}(p) + H_{\beta}(r)$

The Renyi entropy of order $\beta$, for a discrete probability distribution $p$ is given by H_{\beta}(p) = \frac{1}{1 - \beta} ~\log \left( \sum_{i \in S} p(i)^{\beta} \right), \end{...
