Asymptotic Theory of Quantum Estimation

Author: Masahito Hayashi (ERATO Quantum Computation and Information Project)

Abstract

We discuss the asymptotic bound the accuracy of the estimation when we use the quantum correlation in the measuring apparatus. It is also proved that this bound can be achieved in any model in the quantum two-level system and in the general case. Moreover, we show that in several specific model this bound cannot be attained by any quantum measurement with no quantum correlation in the measuring apparatus. That is, in such a model, the quantum correlation can improve the accuracy of the estimation in an asymptotic setting.
