### Finding the eigenvalues of a qutrit state

Maybe you forgot about the coefficient $\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}$. The correct reduced density matrix is $$\frac12 (\left|1\right>\left<1\right| + \left|2\right>\left<2\right|)$$

### Is possible to write a separable state as a finite or countable infinite sum of product states?

Yes, you can always write an integral of separable states as a (finite) convex combination of product states, owing to the fact that the set of separable states is compact. A quick way to see this is ...

### Problem with eigenvalue evaluation algorithm application on matrix $U$

TL;DR: Qubit order in the top register is reversed. QFT qubit order in Quirk Quirk's QFT gate treats the top qubit as the least significant and the bottom qubit as the most significant. Thus, if you ...

### What is known about the size of the spectral gap of unital quantum channels?

TL;DR: Spectral gap depends on the specific channel. Moreover, for any $g\in[0,1]$ there is a channel with spectral gap $g$. Non-peripheral eigenoperators are traceless We can make simple observations ...

### How to get the Kraus operator $M_0=\sqrt{1-p}\, I$ for the depolarizing channel, from its isometric representation?

The unitary representation specifies how the isometry $U$ acts on pure states. The channel $\Phi$ is related to $U$ by $\Phi(\rho)=\operatorname{tr}_E[U\rho U^\dagger]$. Notice that on pure states ...

### Is there a general method for calculating expectation values for time-dependent wavefunctions?

I won't give the final answer (close to it), but instead try and point you in the general direction. Initial State: The given initial state is $| \psi(t=0) \rangle = | 0 \rangle$. Pauli X Matrix: ...

### What do the values in a unitary matrix represent/what do they mean? How do you figure out what gate a unitary matrix represents?

I don't know what your background is, but I find it helpful to come at this from the starting point of classical probability: Imagine you have a two state system (such as a coin). It can either be ...

### What do the values in a unitary matrix represent/what do they mean? How do you figure out what gate a unitary matrix represents?

Every unit vector in your Hilbert Space corresponds to a valid quantum state. Multiplying that matrix with your vector is just the linear transformation. It is like, given that all possible states, ...

### How to know what eigenvalue corresponds to measurements of individual qubits in a multiqubit system?

If you consider the state $$\Omega_- = \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}(|00\rangle + |11\rangle).\tag{1}$$ you will find that there is NO violation. Let me show this. Note that the approach I will use for solving ...

### How to know what eigenvalue corresponds to measurements of individual qubits in a multiqubit system?

From your current description, it seems that you have found each eigenvector $\{|v_1\rangle,...,|v_4\rangle\}$ and its associated eigenvalue $\lambda_1,...,\lambda_4$. These eigenvalues represent the ...
