Operator-Valued Frames Associated with Measure Spaces

Abstract Since Duffin and Schaeffer's introduction of frames in 1952, the concept of a frame has received much attention in the mathematical community and has inspired several generalizations. The focus of this thesis is on the concept of an operator-valued frame (OVF) and a more general concept called herein an operator-valued frame associated with a measure space (MS-OVF), which is sometimes called a continuous g-frame. The first of two main topics explored in this thesis is the relationship between MS-OVFs and objects prominent in quantum information theory called positive operator-valued measures (POVMs). It has been observed that every MS-OVF gives rise to a POVM with invertible total variation in a natural way. The first main result of thi... (more)
