Existence of a projection operator onto a classical set of density matrices

I have a Hilbert space of quantum density matrices written in the Glauber-Sudarshan P representation - ie. we have coherent states $|\alpha \rangle$ and we write density matrices as $$ \rho = \int ...

Spectral decomposition for an arbitrary linear combination of position and momentum operators

Suppose we have the Hilbert space L2(Rn) and we have n operators Qi and n operators Pi defined in the usual way by: Qi ψ(q1,q2,...,qn) = qi ψ(q1,q2,...,qn) Pi ψ(q1,q2,...,qn) = -i ...

Quantum channels as categories: question 1.

A quantum channel is a mapping between Hilbert spaces, $\Phi : L(\mathcal{H}_{A}) \to L(\mathcal{H}_{B})$, where $L(\mathcal{H}_{i})$ is the family of operators on $\mathcal{H}_{i}$. In general, we ...
