Tensor networks offer a novel and powerful tool for solving a variety of problems in mathematics, data science, and engineering. One such network is the multiscale entanglement renormalization ansatz (MERA). The MERA exhibits a hierarchical structure of layers, where each layer corresponds to a part…

In this research we analyze two models using the tensor network algorithm. The quantum correlations of a two-qubit system are first studied in different bosonic reservoirs. Both equilibrium and nonequilibrium scenarios are discussed. Non-Markovian effects can improve the survival time of the quantum…

A family of skew information quantities is obtained, in which the well-known Wigner-Yanase skew information and quantum Fisher information stand as special cases. A transparent proof of convexity of the generalized skew information is given, implying a simple proof of the Wigner-Yanase-Dyson conject…

The distribution of typical bipartite pure states is studied within the framework of state transformation via local operations and classical communication (LOCC). We report the statistics of comparable and incomparable states in different dimensions for single- and multicopy regimes, and we establis…

The situation is studied when an ensemble of pure quantum states is mapped onto another ensemble of pure quantum states. In general, this operation may not be done with unit probability. In this work, the bounds for success probability of such operation are provided, with closed-form expressions inv…

The quantum approximate optimization algorithm was proposed as a heuristic method for solving combinatorial optimization problems on near-term quantum computers and may be among the first algorithms to perform useful computations in the postsupremacy, noisy, intermediate-scale era of quantum computi…

The ideal measurement-device-independent quantum key distribution (MDI-QKD), which is immune to all detector side-channel attacks, is built on the Bell state measurement of two single-photon states. However, in practical MDI-QKD where phase-randomized weak coherent pulses (PR-WCPs) are used, the mis…

We demonstrate the applicability of a universal gate set in the parity encoding, which is a dual to the standard gate model, by exploring several quantum gate algorithms such as the quantum Fourier transform and quantum addition. Embedding these algorithms in the parity encoding reduces the circuit …

Measuring the expectation value of Pauli operators on prepared quantum states is a fundamental task in a multitude of quantum algorithms. Simultaneously measuring sets of Pauli operators allows for fewer measurements and an overall speedup of the measurement process. Using results from coloring rand…

Quantum addition circuits are considered being of two types: (1) Toffoli-adder circuits which use only classical reversible gates (controlled-not and Toffoli), and (2) QFT-adder circuits based on the quantum Fourier transformation. We present a systematic translation of the QFT addition circuit into…

Future quantum networks will require the ability to produce matter-photon entanglement at photon frequencies not naturally emitted from the matter qubit. This allows for a hybrid network architecture, where these photons can couple to other tools and quantum technologies useful for tasks such as mul…

Variational quantum algorithms are the centerpiece of modern quantum programming. These algorithms involve training parametrized quantum circuits using a classical coprocessor, an approach adapted partly from classical machine learning. An important subclass of these algorithms, designed for combina…

We explore the fundamental origin of the quantum advantage behind random access code. We propose new temporal inequalities compatible with noninvasive-realist models and show that any nonzero quantum advantage of n↦1 random access code in the presence of shared randomness is equivalent to the violat…

Most previous efforts on quantum error correction focused on either extending classical error-correction schemes to the quantum regime by performing a perfect correction on a subset of errors or seeking a recovery operation to maximize the fidelity between an input state and its corresponding output…

Is quantum communication possible over an optical fiber with transmissivity λ≤1/2? The answer is well known to be negative if the environment with which the incoming signal interacts is initialized in a thermal state. However, Lami *et al.* [Phys. Rev. Lett. **125**, 110504 (2020)] found the quantum capac…

In the Schrödinger picture, the state of a quantum system evolves in time and the quantum speed limit describes how fast the state of a quantum system evolves from an initial state to a final state. However, in the Heisenberg picture the observable evolves in time instead of the state vector. Theref…

Decoherence of a quantum system is one of the main difficulties for quantum information processing. Continuous dynamical decoupling has achieved great success in the improvement of the coherence of a quantum state but is difficult to optimize. Here we exploit the black-box optimization process in a …

Quantum state tomography is a key technique for quantum information processing but is challenging due to the exponential growth of its complexity with the system size.

In this paper, we present an experimentally feasible protocol to generate the cat states in the microwave resonator coupled to a superconducting qubit.
