Some Mathematical Problems Related to Quantum Hypothesis Testing

  • Hiroshi Nagaoka
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4123)


We present two open problems related to the asymptotics of quantum hypothesis testing, together with some discussions about their mutual relation, the classical counterparts and a possible conjecture.
