1306.4767 (Taksu Cheon et al.)

Weak value expansion of quantum operators and its application in
stochastic matrices

Taksu Cheon, Sergey Poghosyan
It is shown that any Hermitian operator can be expanded in terms of a set of operators formed from biorthogonal basis, and the expansion coefficients are given as products of weight functions and weak values, shedding a new light on the physical interpretation of the weak value. The utility of our approach is showcased with examples of spin one-half and spin one systems, where irreversible subset of stochastic matrices describing projective measurement on a mixed state is identified.
