Resource theories of quantum coherence: foundations and applications

Abstract:

One of the fundamental features that separates quantum physics from classical physics is the idea of quantum superposition, also known as coherence. This thesis concentrates on understanding quantum coherence in the mathematical framework of resource theories, viewing it both as a resource to be harnessed and as a way to quantitatively characterise quantum states in contrast to classical states.

We first examine the type of coherence resource theory which has emerged recently to cop...
