Paper Abstract

Quantum state discrimination is a fundamental task in quantum information theory and also an important building block in practical quantum information applications. We here consider optimal state discrimination in a noisy environment in which quantum states may be corrupted due to the intervention of an environment. We show that even if there exists an unwanted interaction with an environment and the channel describing the interaction is not yet identified, a measurement prepared in the beginning for optimal state discrimination can be preserved as an optimal measurement ever after a channel use. This means that in a practical realization of quantum communication, verification of a channel can be circumvented and the cost of quantum tomography is saved. We also show a protocol of preserving an optimal measurement for state discrimination.
