1.5.1 Classical-quantum states
Quite often we will be faced with a situation in which Alice holds some classical information – say an encryption key – about which the adversary (such as an eavesdropper) holds some quantum information. The joint state of Alice and the eavesdropper is then a classical-quantum state: classical for Alice and quantum for the eavesdropper.
What do such states look like?
