Joint remote state preparation of a W-type state via W-type states
Q. Q. Chen, Y. Xia, J. Song and Nguyen Ba An
An all W-type state task is put forward: joint remote state preparation of a W-type state via W-type states. We propose two probabilistic yet faithful schemes for the task. The first scheme uses two arbitrary W-type states as the shared quantum resource and the second scheme exploits three such states. We show that, while the first scheme requires some additional quantum resource and technical operations from the receiver, the second scheme allows any completely unequipped party to play the role of receiver. In both schemes the classical communication cost is one bit per preparer.
