Abstract

Let $\mathbf{A}$ be a density matrix in $\mathbb{M}_m\otimes \mathbb{M}_n$. Audenaert [J. Math. Phys. 48 (2007) 083507] proved an inequality for Schatten $p$-norms: \[ 1+\|\mathbf{A}\|_p\ge \|\tr_1 \mathbf{A}\|_p+\|\tr_2 \mathbf{A}\|_p, \] where $\tr_1, \tr_2$ stand for the first and second partial trace, respectively. As an analogue of his result, we prove a determinantal inequality \[ 1+\det \mathbf{A}\ge \det(\tr_1 \mathbf{A})^m+\det(\tr_2 \mathbf{A})^n. \]
