The Brody-Hughston Fisher Information Metric
Paul B. Slater ;
Date 3 Apr 2003
Subject quant-ph
AffiliationUniversity of California
AbstractWe study the interrelationships between the Fisher information metric recently introduced, on the basis of maximum entropy considerations, by Brody and Hughston (quant-ph/9906085) and the monotone metrics, as explicated by Petz and Sudar. This new metric turns out to be not strictly monotone in nature, and to yield (via its normalized volume element) a prior probability distribution over the Bloch ball of two-level quantum systems that is less noninformative than those obtained from any of the monotone metrics, even the minimal monotone (Bures) metric. We best approximate the additional information contained in the Brody-Hughston prior over that contained in the Bures prior by constructing a certain Bures posterior probability distribution. This is proportional to the product of the Bures prior and a likelihood function based on four pairs of spin measurements oriented along the diagonal axes of an inscribed cube.
