## Main Question or Discussion Point

How should I prove this?

From John Preskill's quantum computation & quantum information lecture notes(chapter 5)

If a pure state is drawn randomly from the ensemble{|φ

Then, H(X)≥S(ρ)

where H stands for Shannon entropy of probability {p

If a pure state is drawn randomly from the ensemble{|φ

_{x}〉,p_{x}}, so that the density matrix is ρ = ∑p_{x}|φ_{x}〉<φ_{x}|Then, H(X)≥S(ρ)

where H stands for Shannon entropy of probability {p

_{x}} and S stands for Von Neumann entropy.
