Irreversibility and symmetry principles in quantum information

Cristina Cirstoiu
Symmetry principles have played a crucial role in the development of modern physics and underpin our most fundamental theories of nature. The present thesis is concerned with the analysis of symmetries in the context of quantum information theory. Whenever a quantum mechanical system interacts with its environment it is subjected to decoherence, a process that is typically irreversible and most generally treated abstractly using the concept of quantum operations. If there is an underlying symmetry...
