In this work some charicteristics and applications for quantum information is revealed. The various dynamical equations of quantum information density have been investigated, transmission characteristics of the dynamical mutual information have been studied, and the decoherence-free controlling procedure has been considered, which exposes that quantum information is holographic through the similarity structure of subdynamic kinetic equations for quantum information density.

Since quantum information theory has made great progresses, it has expanded to treat the intact transmission and processing of quantum states, entanglement of states, offers potentially great advantages over classical information processing, both for efficient algorithms [1,2] and for secure communication [3,4]. Many different implementations for quantum information have been proposed based on principles of quantum computation, quantum cypotography or quantum teleportation, such as Deutsch’s work [

First question answer is: the Liouville equation, the Schwinger-Tomonaga equation and the Einstein equation still hold for quantum information density (QID). In this sense the universe is unified to quantum information, and is driven by the Hamiltonian (energy). In fact, as many physical researchers well know, from Schrödinger equation, through derivative to both side of density operator, one can obtain a Liouville equation as

Then, by using the Liouville equation one can find that the Liouville equation is true for, continuing this procedure until, for any integer n, one can see that the Liouville equation is still true, finally, one can concludes that the Liouville equation still holds for any analytic functional of,

The physical meaning of the above equation can be explained as “a general dynamical relation of information and energy”, here, Hamiltonian H corresponding to the energy, and corresponding to a general quantum information, especially, is a quantum information density (QID). In this way we define that is to correspond upon the quantum information means 1) can be expanded as the power series of, which may be defined as a generalized (or advanced) quantum information density, 2) is quantum information density, 3) can be considered as a minimum unit of the quantum information density. Moreover, in the classical system, the Liouville equation for the information density can also be established by

where defined as a Poisson Bracket. Because QID is just the negative entropy density, this physical meaning of QID allow us to consider logically introduce a micro-representation of the second law of thermodynamics by

which gives naturally a general Liouville equation for a non-equilibrium process constructed by

where is assumed to be introduced by the difference of QID within the systems or between the system and environment. More generally, this difference is supposed to be introduced by a potential of information density, which drives the system evolves along the direction described by the second law of thermodyanmics.

The above fundamental Equation (1) can be expanded to the general relativity system. Indeed, the SchwingerTomonaga equation for the density operator presented by Schwinger and Tomomaga [8-12] is

where denotes the Hamiltonian density, is three-dimensional spacelike hypersurface defined to be a three-dimensional manifold in Minkowski space. Each point defined as for the space-time coordinates. Formally, the functional derivative is defined as

where the volume of the four-dimensional space-time region enclosed by and is denoted by. Hence, the solution of the Schwinger-Tomonaga equation can be written by

where

denotes the chronological time-ordering operator. The density operator then becomes a functional on the set of spacelike hypersurfaces. For deriving the Schwinger-Tomonaga equation for functional of, we start from the Schwinger-Tomonaga equation and have:

for any integer. Considering for any analytic functional of, can be expanded as a power series on, a Schwinger-Tomonaga equation for general functional of thus can be obtained by

The above established Schwinger-Tomonaga equation for QID allows one to study QID dynamics in curved space-time. In fact again, the above Schwinger-Tomonaga equation can also be extended to the curved spacetime by introducing the quantum bundles and the covariant derivative to replace the ordinary derivative, thus, in the general relativistic domain the state vector or the functional of density operator must be regarded as a functional of the set of spacelike hypersurfaces in curved space-time manifold [10,13]. Then, let the Hamiltonian density of gravitation field and matter be described by where represents the Hamiltonian density of gravity field whose Lagrangian density is given by Einstein-Hilbert action, , and represents the Hamiltonian density of the matter. Thus, in terms of Equation (10) a general functional of density operator (or) defined as quantum information field density satisfies the Schwinger-Tomonaga equation. Taking variation of with respect to reverse metric, which gives an interesting equation:

where

We neglect second order variation, which results in

The established Equation (11) may be a quite interesting equation which is related to the Einstein equation, general functional of density operator (including density operator or quantum information density) and the Schwinger-Tomonaga equation. In fact, based on the theory of quantum gravity, such as the Loop quantum gravity [

This gives

Hence one has the evolution equation for from Equation (11), which shows an interesting evolution symmetric property for (general) QID in the timespace:

in which the Schwinger-Tomonaga equation (including Liouville equation, Schrödinger equation) and Einstein equation (including quantum Einstein equation) are implied. This shows that the fundamental dynamical processes are related to QID. Moreover, since in quantum fluctuations, virtual pairs of positive and negative electrons, in effect, are continually being created and annihilated, and likewise pairs of mu mesons, pairs of baryons, and pairs of other particles, all these fluctuations should coexist with the quantum fluctuations in the geometry and topology of space. Then it is possible that the quantum Einstein equation is induced an additional disturbance (as a sort of potential of information density) as

One interesting evidence is the vacuum, i.e. if the state with respect to which the expectation value is taken is the vacuum state with respect to so that

then the right side of the above equation is generally non-vanishing because of the vacuum fluctuations. This possible large fluctuation of metric operator can not be ignored in extreme astrophysical or cosmological situations, such as near a black hole or big bang singularity [

where may be an imaginary value, which means that the QID fluctuation may cause derivation of the Einstein equation in quantum levels.

The second answer is: the transmission of quantum information along with the dynamical evolution. The both processes can be closely relevant. Indeed, for measuring, it may be important to calculate the mutual information in the system. Generally, starting from the definition of the mutual information density we have [

where is an input ensemble encoded state at time with special coordinate which is the channel length, is an output ensemble encoded state at time with the coordinate, is accumulated lost information density in the channel. When the transmitting time of QID or symbols through channel is long enough with noise in the transmission process, the receiver receive the amount of information contained in the at the time and the output terminal with respect to the which transmitted by transmitter at the time and the input terminal. This is dynamical mutual information. The motivation to propose this formalism is to consider that the quantum channel has long size and noise in transmission process which is different from the usual “point” model of the channel (or zero transmitting time model) [

This allows the dynamical mutual QID is obtained by

This shows that the initial quantum signal (QID) also transform l coordinate from 0 during time in the quantum channel. We emphasize again that the channel possessing dimensional size l and transmission time is different from the traditional quantum (or classical) channel which only represents certain mathematical mapping without physical size and passing time. The above formula shows that the evolution of QID influence the dynamical mutual QID by which can be described by the kinetic equation of QID. Thus, one gets

where is output, and

For example, considering a harmonic oscillator interacting with a quantum gravitational radiation field g, the relevant Hamiltonian is described by

with

and

where is the creation (annihilation) operator for the oscillator in a Fock fibre, is the creation (annihilation) operator of the k continuum field mode (or graviton) within a graviton fibres, is the Lamour frequency of spin k due to the Zeeman interaction, and denotes the coupling between the oscillator and field mode [

The solution of QFPE is given by [

with, where and represent the mean power of input signal and noise, respectively, they are assumed to correspond to the Gaussian distributed random variables [

where and have the same definitions as previously explanations. Hence Equation (24) can be used for measuring the variation of QID,.

For instance, a condition for the QID fluctuation in the Gaussian channel is given by

This gives a condition for the QID fluctuation

when is a function of metric, which is coincidence with the definition of in the interaction Hamiltonian, i.e. is the coupling between the oscillator and field mode. This shows that the fluctuation of QID with the metric in curved time-space may exist and be related to the (quantum) Einstein equation. A significant condition for this QID fluctuation is that the coupling number of the system with the gravitation is a function of the metric on curved space-time manifold.

The third question answer is that QID is holographic through the similarity of subdynamic kinetic equation (SKE). For making this point, we try to introduce a subdynamic formalism [20-22] and followed by some recent works [23,24]. In fact, let a quantum system S be coupled to a thermal reservoir B, H_{S}, H_{B}, and denote the Hamiltonian of the system S, the Hamiltonian of the thermal reservoir B, and the interaction between S and B, respectively. The total Hamiltonian H of the system plus the reservoir can be expressed as . Then in terms of the corresponding quantum Schrödinger equation and Liouville equation, one can introduce a basis, , where j is an index denoting S system and k is an index denoting thermal reservoir B. Usually the basis, is chosen as complete set of eigenvectors of the free Hamiltonian, , here for generally, the can be chosen as any suitable complete basis in the Hilbert space spanned by the eigenvectors of. Hence the orthonormal projector (or) can be introduced by the basis, with, so that

where is a diagonal part of the Hamiltonian expanded by the basis and is an offdiagonal part of the Hamiltonian expanded by the basis. Then the total Hamiltonian H can be expressed by a projected matrix, which allows one to introduce a creation (destruction) correlation operator (as a type of resolvent) by

This shows that the is an eigenvector of the , and is an joint eigenvalue of , which permits one to get the eigenvector of H as with the same eigenvalue. Using above equations, by introducing as an eigen-projector of H, one can construct a Schrödinger type of SKE for each projected state as

with

where and are defined as

and or is a solution of the original Schrödinger equation, which may be in the Rigged Hilbert space, , , is a dense subspace of the Hilbert space, and is a dual space of.

Furthermore, by replacing, and using the above SKE, a Liouvillian type of SKE can also be derived by

The construction of the Schrödinger (Liouvillian) type of SKE in subspace can be intertwined to the original Schrödinger (Liouville) equation with the same spectral structure between operator and Hamiltonian (Liouvillian) [20,23]. For instance, using the relation (30) one has the spectral representation of H related to as, where, and

The creation operator,

creates the -part of from the -part. While

is called intermediate (collision) operator [

where the first index means 1-order of the SKE, and the second index means 2-order of the SKE, until that n-order, ···. The higher order of represents the “vacuum” part of the “dynamic” part of the lower order of density operator, which describes the essence of information contained in the density in its own subspace [

and the eigenvalue of H is given by

where defining, and suppose the spectral decomposition of is

and the eigenvalue can be gotten by using the SKE again,

Continuing this procedure until finally one has only containing 1 projector

then one gets the eigen-vector as

and the eigenvalus as

Replacing back the final result to the previous currency formalism, eventually one can obtain the eigenvector (eigenvalue) of H.

For example, let us consider a Heisenberg model related to three spins interaction with each others. Its Hamiltonian is expressed by

Choosing a basis as

the diagnal matrix elements of H can be given by

and the off-diagnal matrix elements of H can be given by

where notice the index j or k as, , , , , , ,. The eigenvalues and eigenvectors can be calculated by the above presented formalism. Firstly it is obvious that , and. Furthermore, the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the 6-order of projection hamiltonian are given, such as

and

···, continuing untill one gets the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the 1-order of projection hamiltonian, such as

and

and so on, finally author obtains the eigenvector and eigenvalues of the Hamiltonian expressed by

This example shows that the above procedure to gain the eigenvalues and eigenvectors is corret.

The fourth problem answer is that the decoherence can be controlled by using a non-eqilibrium statistical ensembles formalism based on the SKE. Indeed again, the physical meaning of is that it represents the “vacuum” part of the “dynamic” part of the original density operator, which describes the essence of (irreversible) evolution of the density in its own subspace [

An implausible remark is that the Liouvillian type of SKE seems to have the general property to approach various kinetic equations or Master equations, which is beyond the original Liouville equation. As previous mentioned, the Brussels-Austin group have developed many important works for the Liouvillian type of SKE in last two decades and have found that the Liouvillian type of SKE can intertwine with the original Liouville equation by a similarity operator. If the similarity operator is unitary, the Liouvillian type of SKE is reversible, as an equivalent representation of Liouville equation; if the similarity operator is not unitary, the Liouvillian type of SKE is irreversible and the corresponding evolution is not time symmetric. This means that the Liouvillian type of SKE can be as an appropriate kinetic equation to describe the irreversible process, in which the evolution operator is non-unitary on generalized functional space which is beyond the traditional Liouville space. In fact, since Gibbs synthesized a general equilibrium statistical ensemble theory, many theorists have attempted to generalized the Gibbsian theory to non-equilibrium phenomena domain, however the status of the theory of non-equilibrium phenomena can not be said as firm as well established as the Gibbian ensemble theory, although great works have done by numerous authors [28- 38]. The number of references along this line of research is too numerous to cite them all here, we just mention three significant progresses: the relevant ensembles theory presented by Zubarev, Morozov and Röpke [

In fact, if the density operator in quantum canonical system is given by, then using the similarity transformation one can obtain a projected density operator as

which allows one to present (by extension) a new canonical ensemble distribution which is “vacuum” of “dynamic part” of the original, as expressed by Balescu’s book [

with the partition functions as

where

and is an eigenvalue of, is extended as function of position and time. This gives a precise formula of the quantum canonical ensemble for a projected density operator, which can be considered as generalizing the equilibrium quantum canonical ensembles formula to the non-equilibrium quantum canonical ensembles formula in the sense as 1) if the similarity operator is unitary, then the new formula is just an effective (or holographic) representation of the old equilibrium quantum canonical ensembles formula because or H has the same spectral structure, 2) if the similarity operator is non-unitary, then the new formula is an extension of the old formula, which represents kind of non-equilibrium quantum canonical ensembles formula and reflects irreversibility of the system. The spectrum of may appear to have complex spectral structure that is impossible to get from the original self-adjoint operator H in the Hilbert space, and 3) if the similarity operator can be deduced by some approximations, such as Markovian/non-markovian approximations, then the new formula can expose some non-equilibrium characteristics, which can not be gained from the equilibrium quantum ensemble formulas.

Thus it is obvious that the preceding constructed quantum formalism for density operator can be extended to the classical statistical canonical, grand canonical ensembles. Furthermore, the general canonical ensembles distribution can also be derived by using the similarity transformation. We want to emphasize again that in the book of Balescue [

As an application of the above formalism let us deduce the kinetic equations for the open system with strong coupling to the environment. In this case, it is not restricted whether system is Markovian or non-Markovian, but may be irreversible. Then we start directly from the SKE. Here we consider the case for the coupling is strong, since the model beyond the perturbation, which can not solved by usually equilibrium statistical method. Thus the kinetic equation is

where is a resolvent introduced as. Consider the eigenvalues problem and the Born series of expansion, and, one can get

which gives the eigenvalues by

hence, the density operator for this system can be obtained. For example, assume that a Hamiltonian for the Spin-Boson model is given by

where, belong to Pauli matrix, , and is a creation (a Boson, such as phonon or photon) operator for the Bosons of environment, and. Concerning with the eigenvectors of the free Hamiltonian are as, , , then the expansion of H with respect to the basis can be obtained. By introducing an eigen-projectorts as and, and considering Equation (59) and using the subdynamic procedure, one finally obtains, for, , which allows one easily to get a reduced density operator for the canonical system by

where, select sign “+”, , select sign “−”. From Equation (63) one can easily see that the reduced density operator for the canonical system is independent upon the interaction part of Hamiltonian after final approximation, which means that the environment can not influence the system and the system is decoherence-free. Hence, the construction of the above system in the SKE subspace is quantum decoherence-free, which is useful for quantum computing.

The basic dyanmical equations are true to the QID; the transmission process of QID for the mutual information is related to dynamical evolution; the Liouville equations of QID intertwine with SKE of QID, which could establish a non-equilibrium statistical ensemble formalism and apply to control quantum decoherence by strongly coupling system. This exposes that quantum information is holographic through the similarity structure of subdynamic kinetic equations.
