Abstract:  
We compute the quantum maximal correlation for bipartite Gaussian states of continuousvariable systems. Quantum maximal correlation is a measure of correlation with the monotonicity and tensorization properties that can be used to study whether an arbitrary number of copies of a resource state can be locally transformed into a target state without classical communication, known as the local state transformation problem. We show that the required optimization for computing the quantum maximal correlation of Gaussian states can be restricted to local operators that are linear in terms of phasespace quadrature operators. This allows us to derive a closedform expression for the quantum maximal correlation in terms of the covariance matrix of Gaussian states. Moreover, we define Gaussian maximal correlation based on considering the class of local hermitian operators that are linear in terms of phasespace quadrature operators associated with local homodyne measurements. This measure satisfies the tensorization property and can be used for the Gaussian version of the local state transformation problem when both resource and target states are Gaussian. We also generalize these measures to the multipartite case. Specifically, we define the quantum maximal correlation ribbon and then characterize it for multipartite Gaussian states.
