Abstract

We generalize, improve and unify theorems of Rumin, and Maassen–Uffink about classical entropies associated with quantum density matrices. These theorems refer to the classical entropies of the diagonals of a density matrix in two different bases. Thus, they provide a kind of uncertainty principle. Our inequalities are sharp because they are exact in the high-temperature or semi-classical limit.
