Maps on states preserving the relative entropy. II. (English) Zbl 1187.47030

Summary: Let \(H\) be a finite-dimensional complex Hilbert space. The aim of this paper is to prove that every transformation on the space of all density operators on \(H\) which preserves the relative entropy is implemented by either a unitary or an antiunitary operator on \(H\).
