The problem of Hamiltonian purification introduced by Burgarth et al. [Nat. Commun. 5, 5173 (2014)] is formalized and discussed. Specifically, given a set of non-commuting Hamiltonians {h1, …, hm} operating on a d-dimensional quantum system ℋd, the problem consists in identifying a set of commuting Hamiltonians {H1, …, Hm} operating on a larger dE-dimensional system ℋdE which embeds ℋd as a proper subspace, such that hj = PHjP with P being the projection which allows one to recover ℋd from ℋdE. The notions of spanning-set purification and generator purification of an algebra are also introduced and optimal solutions for 픲(d) are provided
