It is proved that the integral is the limit of the trace of the functional calculus of quantum channels. In this paper, we introduce new quantum channels for all the components in the tensor product and generalize their limit formula. We prove that the limit can be expressed using Berezin transforms. Keywords: Quantum channels, reproducing kernels, Hermitian symmetric spaces, limit formulas, Wehrl inequality. MSC: 22E46, 47B38, 81P47. [ Fulltextpdf (186 KB)] for subscribers only.
