Fluctuation theorems from Bayesian retrodiction.

- Medicine, Physics
- Physical review. E
- 2021

It is shown that the reverse channel very naturally arises from Bayesian retrodiction, in both classical and quantum theories, and fluctuation relations acquire a much broader form and scope. Expand

Quantum retrodiction made fully symmetric

- Physics
- 2020

Quantum retrodiction is a time-symmetric approach to quantum mechanics with applications in a number of important problems. One of the major challenges to its more widespread applicability is the… Expand

Quantum Retrodiction: Foundations and Controversies

- Computer Science, Physics
- Symmetry
- 2021

The foundations of quantum retrodiction are presented and its intimate connection with the Bayesian interpretation of probability is highlighted, ensuring its validity directly from conventional predictive quantum theory coupled with Bayes’ theorem. Expand

Three detailed fluctuation theorems.

- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 2010

It is shown that each of them, the total, the adiabatic, and the nonadiabatic trajectory entropy, separately satisfies a detailed fluctuation theorem. Expand

Fluctuation Theorems for a Quantum Channel

- Physics
- Physical Review X
- 2019

We establish the general framework of quantum fluctuation theorems by finding the symmetry between the forward and backward transitions of any given quantum channel. The Petz recovery map is adopted… Expand

Is Entropy Relevant to the Asymmetry Between Retrodiction and Prediction?

- Mathematics
- The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science
- 1992

The idea that the changing entropy of a system is relevant to explaining why we know more about the system's past than about its future has been criticized on several fronts. This paper assesses the… Expand

Equalities and Inequalities: Irreversibility and the Second Law of Thermodynamics at the Nanoscale

- Economics
- 2011

The reason we never observe violations of the second law of thermodynamics is in part a matter of statistics: When ∼1023 degrees of freedom are involved, the odds are overwhelmingly stacked against… Expand

Colloquium: Quantum fluctuation relations: Foundations and applications

- Physics
- 2011

Two fundamental ingredients play a decisive role in the foundation of fluctuation relations: the principle of microreversibility and the fact that thermal equilibrium is described by the Gibbs… Expand

Jarzynski Relations for Quantum Systems and Some Applications

- Mathematics, Physics
- 2000

We derive quantum analogues of Jarzynski's relations, and discuss two applications, namely, a derivation of the law of entropy increase for general compound systems, and a preliminary analysis of… Expand

Quantum Mechanics as Quantum Information (and only a little more)

- Mathematics, Physics
- 2002

In this paper, I try once again to cause some good-natured trouble. The issue remains, when will we ever stop burdening the taxpayer with conferences devoted to the quantum foundations? The suspicion… Expand
