Title: Subnormalized states and trace-nonincreasing maps

Abstract

We investigate the set of completely positive, trace-nonincreasing linear maps acting on the set M{sub N} of mixed quantum states of size N. Extremal point of this set of maps are characterized and its volume with respect to the Hilbert-Schmidt (HS) (Euclidean) measure is computed explicitly for an arbitrary N. The spectra of partially reduced rescaled dynamical matrices associated with trace-nonincreasing completely positive maps belong to the N cube inscribed in the set of subnormalized states of size N. As a by-product we derive the measure in M{sub N} induced by partial trace of mixed quantum states distributed uniformly with respect to the HS measure in M{sub N{sup 2}}.
