Graph representation of quantum states    [PDF]

Bibhas Adhikari, Satyabrata Adhikari, Subhashish Banerjee
In this work we propose graphical representation of quantum states. Pure states require weighted digraphs with complex weights, while mixed states need, in general, edge weighted digraphs with loops; constructions which, to the best of our knowledge, are new in the theory of graphs. Both the combinatorial as well as the signless Laplacian are used for graph representation of quantum states. We also provide some interesting analogies between physical processes and graph representations. Entanglement between two qubits is approached by the development of graph operations that simulate quantum operations, resulting in the generation of Bell and Werner states. As a biproduct, the study also leads to separability criteria using graph operations. This paves the way for a study of genuine multipartite correlations using graph operations.
