    Information Geometric Modeling of Scattering Induced Quantum Entanglement

    Full text link
    We present an information geometric analysis of entanglement generated by an s-wave scattering between two Gaussian wave packets. We conjecture that the pre and post-collisional quantum dynamical scenarios related to an elastic head-on collision are macroscopic manifestations emerging from microscopic statistical structures. We then describe them by uncorrelated and correlated Gaussian statistical models, respectively. This allows us to express the entanglement strength in terms of scattering potential and incident particle energies. Furthermore, we show how the entanglement duration can be related to the scattering potential and incident particle energies. Finally, we discuss the connection between entanglement and complexity of motion.Comment: 7 pages; v2 is better than v

    The Effect Of Microscopic Correlations On The Information Geometric Complexity Of Gaussian Statistical Models

    Full text link
    We present an analytical computation of the asymptotic temporal behavior of the information geometric complexity (IGC) of finite-dimensional Gaussian statistical manifolds in the presence of microcorrelations (correlations between microvariables). We observe a power law decay of the IGC at a rate determined by the correlation coefficient. It is found that microcorrelations lead to the emergence of an asymptotic information geometric compression of the statistical macrostates explored by the system at a faster rate than that observed in absence of microcorrelations. This finding uncovers an important connection between (micro)-correlations and (macro)-complexity in Gaussian statistical dynamical systems.Comment: 12 pages; article in press, Physica A (2010)

    Full Body Interaction beyond Fun: Engaging Museum Visitors in Human-Data Interaction

    Engaging museum visitors in data exploration using full-body interaction is still a challenge. In this paper, we explore four strategies for providing entry-points to the interaction: instrumenting the floor; forcing collaboration; implementing multiple body movements to control the same effect; and, visualizing the visitors' silhouette beside the data visualization. We discuss preliminary results of an in-situ study with 56 museum visitors at Discovery Place, and provide design recommendations for crafting engaging Human-Data Interaction experiences

    Concatenation of Error Avoiding with Error Correcting Quantum Codes for Correlated Noise Models

    Full text link
    We study the performance of simple error correcting and error avoiding quantum codes together with their concatenation for correlated noise models. Specifically, we consider two error models: i) a bit-flip (phase-flip) noisy Markovian memory channel (model I); ii) a memory channel defined as a memory degree dependent linear combination of memoryless channels with Kraus decompositions expressed solely in terms of tensor products of X-Pauli (Z-Pauli) operators (model II). The performance of both the three-qubit bit flip (phase flip) and the error avoiding codes suitable for the considered error models is quantified in terms of the entanglement fidelity. We explicitly show that while none of the two codes is effective in the extreme limit when the other is, the three-qubit bit flip (phase flip) code still works for high enough correlations in the errors, whereas the error avoiding code does not work for small correlations. Finally, we consider the concatenation of such codes for both error models and show that it is particularly advantageous for model II in the regime of partial correlations.Comment: 16 pages, 3 figure

    A simple comparative analysis of exact and approximate quantum error correction

    Full text link
    We present a comparative analysis of exact and approximate quantum error correction by means of simple unabridged analytical computations. For the sake of clarity, using primitive quantum codes, we study the exact and approximate error correction of the two simplest unital (Pauli errors) and nonunital (non-Pauli errors) noise models, respectively. The similarities and differences between the two scenarios are stressed. In addition, the performances of quantum codes quantified by means of the entanglement fidelity for different recovery schemes are taken into consideration in the approximate case. Finally, the role of self-complementarity in approximate quantum error correction is briefly addressed.Comment: 29 pages, 1 figure, improved v2; accepted for publication in Open Systems and Information Dynamics (2014
