We develop a general framework for parameter estimation that allows only trusted parties to access the result and achieves optimal precision. The protocols are designed such that adversaries can access some information indeterministically, but only at the risk of getting caught (cheat sensitivity); ...

We show that genuine multipartite entanglement of all multipartite pure states in arbitrary finite dimension can be detected in a device-independent way by employing bipartite Bell inequalities on states that are deterministically generated from the initial state via local operations. This leads to ...

We give a careful proof that a parallelized version of adiabatic quantum computation can efficiently simulate universal gate model quantum computation. The proof specifies an explicit parameter-dependent Hamiltonian $H(λ)$ that is based on ground state quantum computation [Mizel et al., Phys. Rev. ...

Path-entangled $N$-photon states are key resources for quantum enhanced metrology and quantum imaging, as well as quantum computation. However, the quantum tomography of path-entangled indistinguishable photons is still in its infancy. We propose and implement a quantum tomographical method to chara...

We compare the performance of quantum error correcting codes when memory errors are unitary with the more familiar case of dephasing noise. For a wide range of codes, we analytically compute the effective logical channel that results when the error correction steps are performed noiselessly. Our exa...

We study quantum information aspects of the fermionic entanglement negativity recently introduced [H. Shapourian et al., Phys. Rev. B 95, 165101 (2017)] based on the fermionic partial transpose. In particular, we show that it is an entanglement monotone under the action of local quantum operations ...

We derive stochastic master equation for a quantum system interacting with an environment prepared
in a continuous-mode N -photon state. To determine the conditional evolution of the quantum system
depending on continuous in time measurements of the output field the model of repeated interactions
and measurements is applied. The environment is defined as an infinite chain of harmonic oscillators
which do not interact between themselves and they are prepared initially in an entangled state being

In this paper, we study the inverse scattering problem for a class of signals that have a compactly
supported reflection coefficient. The problem boils down to the solution of the
Gelfand–Levitan–Marchenko (GLM) integral equations with a kernel that is bandlimited. By adopting a
sampling theory approach to the associated Hankel operators in the Bernstein spaces, a constructive
proof of existence of a solution of the GLM equations is obtained under various restrictions on the

The finite volume correction for a mean-field monomer-dimer system with an attractive interaction
are computed for the pressure density, the monomer density and the susceptibility. The results are
obtained by introducing a two-dimensional integral representation for the partition function
decoupling both the hard-core interaction and the attractive one. The next-to-leading terms for each
of the mentioned quantities are explicitly derived as well as the value of their sign that is
