Bures distance between completely positive maps.

K. Sumesh


Our aim is to introduce the notion of Bures distance between completely
positive maps and study their properties. We give it as a series of
lectures since it requires some basic theory of Hilbert C^*-modules.

First lecture: We quickly recall some basic definitions from C^*-algebras.
Then define positive and completely positive maps between C^*-algebras.
Discuss Choi-Kraus decomposition theorem, Stinespring's representation
theorem for completely positive maps and some examples.
