Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A sharp estimate is given for the amount of Shannon information and expected collision probability. This estimate is valid for all eavesdropping strategies described by a generalized measurement and restricted to the Hilbert space of the one-photon state. The optimal generalized measurement is explicitly given.
