Unitary and Nonunitary Evolution of Qubit States in Probability Representation of Quantum Mechanics

  • A. S. AvanesovEmail author
  • V. I. Manko


Review of the probability representation of qubit states and observables is presented as well as the picture of states of two-level systems in terms of Triada of Malevich’s squares. A new relation of introduced probability parameters is obtained. Also, it is offered a method to visualize the quantum channel’s maps of qubit states. Evolution of the two-level system is considered in terms of Triada of Malevich’s squares in case of Rabi and Demkov models.
