Explicit Lieb-Robinson Velocity Bounds

Lieb-Robinson bounds describe how effects are propagated through a system due to a local Hamiltonian. They are often described in the form $$ \left|[A,B(t)]\right|\leq Ce^{vt-l}, $$ where $A$ and $B$ ...

Explicit Conversion Between Universal Gate Sets

I'm interested in the conversion between different sets of universal gates. For example, it is known that each of the following sets is universal for quantum computation: $\{T,H,\textrm{cNOT}\}$ $\{H,...

Superconducting qubit researchers: Do your TLS's move?

I have a superconducting system with tens of qubits, each of which can be tuned using DC flux. One of the main tasks for coherent manipulation of the qubits is to find good idling frequencies and ...

Quantum Walk: Why the need of adding “tail” nodes to the root?

As stated in the question, I have found in several papers (e.g. 1, 2) that in order to perform a quantum walk on a given tree it is necessary to add some nodes to the root $r$, say $r^{'}$ and $r^{"}$....

Estimate/determine Bures separability probabilities making use of corresponding Hilbert-Schmidt probabilities

For two-qubit states, represented by a $4\times 4$ density matrix, the generic state is described by 15 real parameters. For ease of calculation, it can help to consider restricted families of states, ...

Entanglement transfer of spin-entangled triplet-pair states between flying qubits and stationary qubits

The context: We are in the solid state. After a photon absortion by a system with a singlet ground state, the system undergoes the spin-conserving fission of one spin singlet exciton into two spin ...
