Dynamics of relative entropy of coherence under Markovian channels

We study the relative entropy of coherence under the effect of certain one-qubit channels that are Markovian and noisy. The cohering power and decohering power of phase damping, amplitude damping, flip and depolarizing channels are analytically calculated. For phase damping channel, the decohering power on the \(x,\ y,\) and z bases is the same. The same phenomenon is observed for the flip and depolarizing channels. Further, we show that weak measurement and its reversal can be employed to suppress the decohering power of the amplitude damping channel.
