abstract = {We derive several bounds on fidelity between quantum states. In particular we show that fidelity is bounded from above by a simple to compute quantity we call super{\textendash}fidelity. It is analogous to another quantity called sub{\textendash}fidelity. For any two states of a two{\textendash}dimensional quantum system ($N=2$) all three quantities coincide. We demonstrate that sub{\textendash} and super{\textendash}fidelity are concave functions. We also show that super{\textendash}fidelity is super{\textendash}multiplicative while sub{\textendash}fidelity is sub{\textendash}multiplicative and design feasible schemes to measure these quantities in an experiment. Super{\textendash}fidelity can be used to define a distance between quantum states. With respect to this metric the set of quantum states forms a part of a $N^2-1$ dimensional hypersphere.},
