Quantum Consensus Dynamics by Entangling Maxwell Demon
Sungguen Ryu, Rosa López, Raúl Toral
We introduce a Maxwell demon which generates many-body-entanglement robustly against thermal fluctuations, which allows us to obtain quantum advantage. Adopting the protocol of the voter model used for opinion dynamics approaching consensus, the demon randomly selects a qubit pair and performs a quantum feedback control, in continuous repetitions. We derive a lower bound of the entropy production rate by demon's operation, which is determined by a competition between the quantum-classical mutual information acquired by the demon and the absolute irreversibility of the feedback control. Our finding of the lower bound corresponds to a reformulation of the second law of thermodynamics under a stochastic and continuous quantum feedback control.
