Von Neumann entropy and majorization. (English) Zbl 1308.81050
Summary: We consider the properties of the Shannon entropy for two probability distributions which stand in the relationship of majorization. Then we give a generalization of a theorem due to Uhlmann, extending it to infinite dimensional Hilbert spaces. Finally we show that for any quantum channel \(\varPhi\), one has \(S(\varPhi(\rho))=S(\rho)\) for all quantum states \(\rho\) if and only if there exists an isometric operator \(V\) such that \(\varPhi(\rho)=V\rho V^\ast\).
