The data processing inequality states that the quantum relative entropy between two states ρ and σ can never increase by applying the same quantum channel N to both states. This inequality can be strengthened with a remainder term in the form of a distance between ρ and the closest recovered state (R∘N)(ρ), where R is a recovery map with the property that σ=(R∘N)(σ). We show the existence of an explicit recovery map that is universal in the sense that it depends only on σ and the quantum channel N to be reversed. This result gives an alternate, information-theoretic characterization of the conditions for approximate quantum error correction Show more
