|TITLE||A Fluctuation Theorem for Arbitrary Quantum Bipartite Systems|
We present a fluctuation theorem for quantum bipartite systems in which the subsystems exchange information with each other. Our information fluctuation theorem includes correlations by introducing a quantum mechanical mutual information content and a statistical probability distribution which allows one to consider statistical averages when computing the thermodynamic and informational quantities. The fundamental limit of heat transferred from a heat reservoir for quantum bipartite systems involving the quantum mutual information is then derived. We illustrate the use of our thermodynamic inequality in quantum computing and discuss our results in terms of Landauer's principle.
