Secondorder asymptotics for quantum hypothesis testing in settings beyond i.i.d.—quantum lattice systems and more
Abstract
Quantum Stein’s lemma is a cornerstone of quantum statistics and concerns the problem of correctly identifying a quantum state, given the knowledge that it is one of two specific states (ρ or σ). It was originally derived in the asymptotic i.i.d. setting, in which arbitrarily many (say, n) identical copies of the state (ρ{sup ⊗n} or σ{sup ⊗n}) are considered to be available. In this setting, the lemma states that, for any given upper bound on the probability α{sub n} of erroneously inferring the state to be σ, the probability β{sub n} of erroneously inferring the state to be ρ decays exponentially in n, with the rate of decay converging to the relative entropy of the two states. The second order asymptotics for quantum hypothesis testing, which establishes the speed of convergence of this rate of decay to its limiting value, was derived in the i.i.d. setting independently by Tomamichel and Hayashi, and Li. We extend this result to settings beyond i.i.d. Examples of these include Gibbs states of quantum spin systems (with finiterange, translationinvariant interactions) at high temperatures, and quasifree states of fermionic lattice gases.

Twodimensional latticegas models with attractive interactions and particleconserving hopping dynamics under the influence of a very large external electric field along a principal axis are studied in the case of a critical density. A finitesize scaling analysis allows the evaluation of critical indexes for the infinite system as ..beta.. = 0.230 +/ 0.003, v = 0.55 +/ 0.2, and ..cap alpha.. approx. = 0. They also describe some qualitative features of the system evolution and the existence of certain anisotropic order even well above the critical temperature in the case of finite lattices.

Secondorder superintegrable systems in conformally flat spaces. V. Two and threedimensional quantum systems
This paper is the conclusion of a series that lays the groundwork for a structure and classification theory of secondorder superintegrable systems, both classical and quantum, in conformally flat spaces. For twodimensional and for conformally flat threedimensional spaces with nondegenerate potentials we have worked out the structure of the classical systems and shown that the quadratic algebra always closes at order 6. Here we describe the quantum analogs of these results. We show that, for nondegenerate potentials, each classical system has a unique quantum extension. We also correct an error in an earlier paper in the series (that does notmore » 
Exact and quasiexact solvability of secondorder superintegrable quantum systems: I. Euclidean space preliminaries
We show that secondorder superintegrable systems in twodimensional and threedimensional Euclidean space generate both exactly solvable (ES) and quasiexactly solvable (QES) problems in quantum mechanics via separation of variables, and demonstrate the increased insight into the structure of such problems provided by superintegrability. A principal advantage of our analysis using nondegenerate superintegrable systems is that they are multiseparable. Most past separation of variables treatments of QES problems via partial differential equations have only incorporated separability, not multiseparability. Also, we propose another definition of ES and QES. The quantum mechanical problem is called ES if the solution of Schroedinger equation canmore »
