Gate fidelity fluctuations and quantum process invariants    [PDF]

Easwar Magesan, Robin Blume-Kohout, Joseph Emerson
We characterize the quantum gate fidelity in a state-independent manner by giving an explicit expression for its variance. The method we provide can be extended to calculate all higher order moments of the gate fidelity. Using these results we obtain a simple expression for the variance of a single qubit system and deduce the asymptotic behavior for large-dimensional quantum systems. Applications of these results to quantum chaos and randomized benchmarking are discussed.
