## Abstract

## 1. Introduction

## 2. Interpretation

#### 2.1. Erasure

_{j}the outcome probabilities of the single trial. Since the entropy of a pure state is zero we calculate for the energy dissipation ${\overline{E}}_{\mathcal{AS}}=-kT{\displaystyle \sum _{j}}{q}_{j}\mathrm{ln}{q}_{j}$. The dissipation from the environment ${\overline{E}}_{\mathcal{E}}$ is just minus the difference of the inner energy of $\mathcal{AS}$ after and before decoherence, which is ${\overline{E}}_{\mathcal{E}}=-{\displaystyle \sum _{j}}({q}_{j}-{p}_{j}){E}_{j}$. Hence
