Complete positivity, Markovianity, and the quantum data-processing inequality, in the presence of initial system-environment correlations
We show that complete positivity is not only sufficient but also necessary for the validity of the quantum data-processing inequality. As a consequence, the reduced dynamics of a quantum system are completely positive, even in the presence of initial correlations with its surrounding environment, if...
