We are all too easily bamboozled by the quantum world’s complexity – now artificial intelligence is venturing where human minds fear to go

I present an explicit classical simulation of arbitrary quantum noise for quantum models in which one qubit interacts with a quantum bath. The classical model simulates the interaction of the bath and the qubit by random unitary evolutions. I show that any arbitrary quantum dynamics, including quant…

Quantifying quantum mechanical uncertainty is vital for the increasing number of experiments that reach the uncertainty limited regime. We present a method for computing tight variance uncertainty relations, i.e., the optimal state-independent lower bound for the sum of the variances for any set of …

The dynamical behavior of interacting systems plays a fundamental role for determining quantum correlations, such as entanglement. In this Letter, we describe temporal quantum effects of the inseparable evolution of composite quantum states by comparing the trajectories to their classically correlat…
