Transformations of entangled mixed states of two qubits

Alkuş, Ümit
In this thesis, the entangled mixed states of two qubits are considered. In the case where the matrix rank of the corresponding density matrix is 2, such a state can be purified to a pure state of 3 qubits. By utilizing this representation, the classification of such states of two qubits by stochastic local operations assisted by classical communication (SLOCC) is obtained. Also for such states, the optimal ensemble that appears in the computation of the concurrence and entanglement of formation is obtained.


Discrimination of quantum states under local operations and classical communication
Güngör, Özenç; Turgut, Sadi; Department of Physics (2015)
One dimensional molecular potentials are studied by solving the Schrödinger Equation for some well known potentials, such as the deformed Morse, Eckart and the Hua potentials. Parametric generalization of Hamiltonian Hierarchy is introduced. Nikiforov-Uvarov method and SUSYQM with Hamiltonian Hierarchy method is used in the calculations to get energy eigenvalues and the corresponding wave functions exactly.
Weight discrimination of boolean functions with quantum computation
Uyanık, Kıvanç; Turgut, Sadi; Department of Physics (2014)
In this thesis, we investigate solvability of the weight decision problem of two Boolean functions by quantum computation. In particular, we study this problem first from a general quantum operator discrimination perspective and second from a direct algorithmic viewpoint. As quantum operator discrimination approach is concerned, we give two different formulations for two different cases. In one, the unitary transformations that correspond to the function evaluation are applied in a parallel fashion and in t...
Discrete symmetries in quantum theory
Taşdan, İsmail Ufuk; Pak, Namık Kemal; Department of Physics (2015)
In this thesis, one of the most central problems of modern physics, namely the discrete symmetries, is discussed from various perspectives ranging from classical mechanics to relativistic quantum theory. The discrete symmetries, namely charge conjugation (C), parity (P), time reversal (T), which are connected by the so-called CPT Theorem are studied in detail. The anti-particles with a view to matter-anti-matter symmetry is also addressed and the anti-unitarity nature of the time reversal, as well as the CP...
Relations Between Reconstructed 3D entities
Pugeault, Nicolas; Kalkan, Sinan; Wörgötter, Florentin; Başeski, Emre; Kruger, Norbert (2008-01-22)
In this paper, we first propose an analytic formulation for the position’s and orientation’s uncertainty of local 3D line descriptors reconstructed by stereo. We evaluate these predicted uncertainties with Monte Carlo simulations, and study their dependency on different parameters (position and orientation). In a second part, we use this definition to derive a new formulation for inter–features distance and coplanarity. These new formulations take into account the predicted uncertainty, allowing for bet...
The Sigma(0)Lambda transition magnetic moment in light cone QCD sum rules
Alıyev, Tahmasıb; Özpineci, Altuğ; Savcı, Mustafa (2001-09-20)
Using the general form of the Sigma (0) and Lambda currents, the Sigma (0)Lambda transition magnetic moment is calculated in framework of the light cone QCD sum rules. A comparison of our result on this quantity with the existing theoretical results and experimental data is presented.
