Quantum Computationquot Lecture 10 Quantum Noise 11 Notes taken by Brandon Belew November 2007 Summary This lecture covers ve main areas 1 example of quantum noise 2 the subsystem point of View 3 the density matrix as a fundamental object 4 example of desnity matrix and quantum teleporta tion and 5 delity measures 1 Example of Quantum Noise The point of the rst section was that working with the desnity matrix saves a lot of work Working with state vectors would be complicated For instance think of applying the X gate with probability p and probability 1 7 p that the not gate fails in which case nothing happens Then we have P ijl jgtlt jl gt 2P1PXl jgtlt lePj1 Pl jgtlt jl PX X1P7 We can also ask how good a not gate this is We compare ideal output X lzbj to actual output This brings us to the notion mentioned in the outline as 5 of delity measures Fidelity is a measure of how similar two states are and is de ned as Fayb lltalbgtl This can range from O totally dissimilar to 1 the same To compare la to a Ej pjl jgtlt jl we compute the delity Faa wltalalagti Actual output is for a given state Thus we have FXl gt7El gtlt l lt lXEl gt WWW 10 1 PXWXWV lt Fidelity ranges from E for l gt 0 and 1 for l gt My 2 2 The Subsystem PointofView The density matrix characterizes a sybsystem of a larger system For instance in a multistate entangled system we can t talk about each state individually but we can assign a density matrix Summarizing the examples talked about in this section we can say that given a state l gt of systems A and B and a measurement de ned by a projector Pj that acts on A alone tTPj gtlt pA gives the measurement statistics where m E ZakzazmlWl E trBltl gtlt lgt klm Lecture Notes for a course given by Stephen F Bush at RPI is the reduced density matrix of system A Alternatively we can de ne tTBla1gtlta2l lblgtltb2lEla1gtlta2lgtltWl171gtltb2lgtltb2lblgtla1gtlta2l This de nition can be extended linearly to arbitrarily many matrices 3 The Density Matrix as a Fundamental Object This section of the lecture dealt with reformulating the Four Postulates in terms of the density matrix 4 An Example of the Density Matrix and Quantum Teleportation Using the density matrix we can show why quantum teleportation does not allow fasterthanlight FTL travel The initial state is l gt ioobgm B s initial reduced density matrix is just the reduced density matrix for a Bell state PB It was shown that Bob s nal reduced density matrix after Alice applies her transformations is the same as be fore Thus the statistics of any measurement he can do will be the same after Alice s initial measurement as before Thus there is no possible ow of information 5 Fidelity Measures This material was covered in the rst section
