### How to calculate the conditional min-entropy via a semidefinite program?

I think I have an answer. The following should be the CVX code for one of the formulations found in this link. ...

### Showing that $S(\rho_{XB}||\sigma_{XB})=\sum_{x}p(x)D(\rho_{B}^{x}||\sigma_{B}^{x})$ for classical-quantum states

As you say, $$\mathrm{Tr}[\rho_{XB} \log \rho_{XB}] = -S(X) + \sum_{x} p(x) \mathrm{Tr}[\rho_{B}^x \log \rho_B^x].$$ But if you can prove the above statement, then the exact same derivation gives ...

### How to take the limits of the sandwiched Renyi divergences?

Both limits are dealt with in a fair amount of detail in the work that originally defined the sandwiched entropies: On quantum Renyi entropies: a new generalization and some properties. In particular, ...

### What is the conditional min-entropy for diagonal ("classical") matrices?

Long story short: taking $\sigma_B = \rho_B$ is equivalent to taking the worst case min-entropy $$\hat{H}_{\min}(A|B) = - \log \max_{a,b} P(A=a|B=b)\,,$$ and optimizing over $\sigma_B$ is equivalent ...

### Data processing inequality for relative entropy in the presence of an amplitude damping channel

An easy (but perhaps cheating) answer: The relative entropy $S(A||B)$diverges when $A$ has support over the kernel of $B$ (e.g., wikipedia). Now, the kernel of \$B=|0\rangle^{\otimes n}\langle 0|^{\...
