Math Seminar: The Role of Majorization and Trumping in Quantum Information Theory

October 29, 2013

Room 1-54, Brodie Building

Majorization is a basic concept in matrix theory that has found applications in numerous settings over the past century. Power majorization is a more specialized notion that has been studied in the theory of inequalities. On the other hand, the trumping relation has recently been considered in quantum information, specifically in entanglement theory. We explore the connections between trumping and power majorization.
