We prove a lower bound on the q-maximal fidelities between two quantum channels ε0and ε1and an upper bound on the q-maximal fidelities between a quantum channel ε and an identity I. Then we apply these two bounds to provide a simple sufficient and necessary condition for sequential perfect distinguish ability between ε and I and provide both a lower bound and an upper bound on the minimum number of queries required to sequentially perfectly discriminating ε and I. Interestingly, in the 2-dimensional case, both bounds coincide. Based on the optimal perfect discrimination protocol presented in , we can further generalize the lower bound and upper bound to the minimum number of queries to perfectly discriminating ε and I over all possible discrimination schemes. Finally the two lower bounds are shown remain working for perfectly discriminating general two quantum channels ε0and ε1in sequential scheme and over all possible discrimination schemes respectively. © Rinton Press.
