Abstract [en]

Geometric phase has found a broad spectrum of applications in both classical and quantum physics. In this work we discuss a geometric phase for mixed quantum states based on traces of spectral weighted holonomies. Our approach applies to general unitary evolutions of both nondegenerate and degenerate mixed states, and it generalizes the standard definition of geometric phase for mixed states, which is based on quantum interferometry. We provide an explicit formula for the geometric phase that can be easily implemented for computations in quantum physics, and we discuss higher order analogs of the geometric phase that might be defined at points where the ordinary geometric phase is undefined.
