Simulating covariant transformations with local operations

We show how quantum evolutions that are characterized by covariant transformations and restricted by superselection rules can be mapped to LOCC operations. We further show how measures of entanglement can be used to quantify the asymmetry, or frameness, of any state, pure or mixed. Our results make it possible for the first time to construct a wide range of asymmetry monotones for general symmetry groups associated with different superselection rules, and highlights the deep links that exist between entanglement theory and the resource theories of asymmetry.
