Quantum information in base n defined by state partitions

Quantum information in base n defined by state partitions We define a “nit” as a radix n measure of quantum information which is based on state partitions associated with the outcomes of n -ary observables and which, for n > 2 , is fundamentally irreducible to a binary coding. Properties of this measure for entangled many-particle states are discussed. k particles specify k nits in such a way that k mutually commuting measurements of observables with n possible outcomes are sufficient to determine the information. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review A American Physical Society (APS)

Abstract

We define a “nit” as a radix n measure of quantum information which is based on state partitions associated with the outcomes of n -ary observables and which, for n > 2 , is fundamentally irreducible to a binary coding. Properties of this measure for entangled many-particle states are discussed. k particles specify k nits in such a way that k mutually commuting measurements of observables with n possible outcomes are sufficient to determine the information.
