Abstract

Using elementary techniques from analytic perturbation theory of Hermitian matrices, we devise a simple strategy to detect positive quantum capacities of quantum channels and their complements. Several noteworthy examples, such as the depolarizing and transpose-depolarizing channels (including the Werner-Holevo channel), dephasing channels, generalized Pauli channels, multi-level amplitude damping channels, and (conjugate) diagonal unitary covariant channels, serve to aptly exhibit the utility of our method. Our main result leads to simplified proofs of certain existing structure theorems for the class of degradable quantum channels, and an extension of their applicability to the larger class of more capable quantum channels.
