摘要：Quantum entanglement is a key physical resource in quantum information processing. Ever since the rise of quantum information theory, it has been an open problem to quantify entanglement in an information-theoretically meaningful way. In particular, every previously defined entanglement measure bearing a precise information-theoretic meaning is not known to be efficiently computable, or if it is efficiently computable, then it is not known to have a precise information-theoretic meaning. In this work, we meet this challenge by introducing an entanglement measure that has a precise information-theoretic meaning as the exact cost required to prepare an entangled state. Additionally, this entanglement measure is efficiently computable by means of a semidefinite program, and it bears a number of useful properties such as additivity and faithfulness. Next, we introduce and resolve the exact entanglement cost for simulating quantum channels in both the parallel and sequential settings. This talk is based on Cost of Quantum Entanglement Simplified, Phys. Rev. Lett., vol. 125, no. 4, p. 040502, 2020.
