Quantum rate-distortion coding

H Barnum

Research output: Working paper


I introduce rate-distortion theory for the coding of quantum information, and derive a lower bound, involving the coherent information, on the rate at which qubits must be used to store or compress an entangled quantum source with a given maximum level of distortion per source emission.
