1.6.1 General measurements

Course subject(s) 01. Quantum tools and a first protocol

In this video we introduce the general formalism for quantum measurements, “POVM” in short. This goes beyond the “basis measurements” that we’ve seen so far by allowing measurements with more (or less) outcomes than the dimension, as well as┬ápartial measurements of subsystems.
