RESUMO: Neste artigo, pretendemos abordar o papel da memória e da narrativa na constituição da identidade pessoal, a partir de conceitos teóricos da obra de Paul Ricoeur (em especial O si-mesmo como outro) e da análise do conto “O urso atravessou a montanha”, de Alice Munro. Esse movimento nos permitirá sublinhar a ideia de que, contrariamente ao q...

We develop a protocol for entanglement generation in the quantum internet that allows a repeater node to use n -qubit Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger (GHZ) projective measurements that can fuse n successfully entangled links , i.e., two-qubit entangled Bell pairs shared across n network edges, incident at that node. Implementing n -fusion, for n ≥ 3, i...

We successfully realized symmetric and asymmetric cyclic quantum teleportation by using different controllers for each receiver. In this study, Alice sends her qubit to Bob, Bob sends his qubit to Charlie, and Charlie sends his qubit to Alice. We used only Hadamard and CNOT gates to generate all quantum channels. None of the participants could rebu...

Recent measurements of the electroweak-boson production performed by the ALICE Collaboration are reported. The W-boson production was measured at midrapidity in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 13$ TeV, via the electronic decay of the boson. It was also measured in association with a hadron emitted back-to-back with respect to the electron. In heavy-io...

We investigate practical dense coding by imposing locality restrictions on decoders and symmetry restrictions on encoders within the resource theory of asymmetry framework. In this task, the sender Alice and the helper Fred preshare an entangled state. Alice encodes a classical message into the quantum state using a symmetric preserving encoder and...

Port-based teleportation (PBT) is a protocol in which Alice teleports an unknown quantum state to Bob using measurements on a shared entangled multipartite state called the port state and forward classical communication. In this paper, we give an explicit proof that the so-called pretty good measurement, or square-root measurement, is optimal for t...

Ever since the publication of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s adventures in Wonderland (1866), interpretations of its apparent nonsense have been given. In 2009, Melanie Bayley added new interpretations, for instance, that the chapter about the mad tea-party mocked the quaternions of Sir William Rowan Hamilton. In 2017, Francine Abeles argued against Bayle...

The quantum steering ellipsoid inscribed inside the Bloch sphere offers an elegant geometric visualization of two-qubit states shared between Alice and Bob. The set of Bloch vectors of Bob’s qubit, steered by Alice via all possible local measurements on her qubit, constitutes the steering ellipsoid. The steering ellipsoids are shown to be effective...

This article presents the first measurement of the interaction between charm hadrons and nucleons. The two-particle momentum correlations of pD− and p¯D+ pairs are measured by the ALICE Collaboration in high-multiplicity pp collisions at s=13 TeV. The data are compatible with the Coulomb-only interaction hypothesis within (1.1–1.5)σ. The level of a...

Portugal has had a relationship with cinema for about 100 years, however, research on the work of costumes (or wardrobe) is practically non-existent, relegated to the second or third plane in national cinematography, where the highlight is on the director (Souza, 2019).

When two parties, Alice and Bob, share correlated quantum systems and Alice performs local measurements, Alice's updated description of Bob's state can provide evidence of nonclassical correlations. This simple scenario, famously studied by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen (EPR), can be modified by allowing Bob to also have a classical or quantum syste...

Due to the coupling with the noisy environment, the quantum state in the target quantum communication system will undergo decoherence and reduce the fidelity. To diminish the noise effect, we utilized weak measurement (WM) and weak measurement reversal (MWR) to enhance the fidelity of controlled quantum teleportation (CQT). The CQT protocol was fir...

The production mechanism of (anti)nuclei in ultrarelativistic hadronic collisions is under intense debate in the scientific community. The description of the experimental measurements is currently based on two competing phenomenological models: the statistical hadronization model and the coalescence approach.

Two three-party semi-quantum communication protocols (SQSDC protocol and SQD protocol) based on Greenberger–Horne–Zeilinger (GHZ) states are designed to make one quantum user and two classical ones to communicate. Three-party SQSDC protocol allows two classical senders to transmit their message to one quantum receiver simultaneously, while three-pa...

The `no communication' theorem prohibits superluminal communication by showing that any measurement by Alice on an entangled system cannot change the reduced density matrix of Bob's state, and hence the expectation value of any measurement operator that Bob uses remains the same. We argue that the proof of the `no communication' theorem is incomple...

Quantum resources can improve the quality and security of data transmission. A novel communication protocol based on the use of mesoscopic twin-beam (TWB) states of light is proposed and discussed.
