Entanglement swapping is a process bywhich two initially independent quantum systems can become entangled and generate nonlocal correlations. To characterize such correlations, we compare them to… Expand

A complete set of game-theoretic conditions equivalent to the existence of a transformation from one quantum channel into another one, by means of classically correlated pre/post processing maps only, are provided, mirroring the resource theory of entanglement in quantum states.Expand

It is proved that even in the simplest Bell test-one involving 2 parties each performing 2 binary-outcome measurements-an arbitrarily small amount of measurement independence is sufficient to manifest quantum nonlocality.Expand

This work introduces the concept of measurement-device-independent entanglement witnesses (MDI-EWs), which allow one to demonstrateEntanglement of all entangled quantum states with untrusted measurement apparatuses, and shows how to systematically obtain such MDI-ews from standard entangler witnesses.Expand

A finite upper bound on the cardinality of the value sets of the local hidden variables is proved, finding that the sets of local correlations are connected, closed and semialgebraic, and bounded by tight polynomial Bell-like inequalities.Expand

Self-testing methods for quantum prepare-and-measure experiments, thus not necessarily relying on entanglement and/or violation of a Bell inequality are developed, assuming an upper bound on the Hilbert space dimension.Expand

It is shown that the natural analogs of the maximum-likelihood estimation technique and the least-square-error estimation technique in the device-independent context result in point estimates of the true distribution that are physical, unique, computationally tractable and consistent.Expand

A decomposition for Bell-like inequalities based on a set of reference expressions which is not affected by degeneracies is proposed and algorithms based on finite group theory are provided to compute this decomposition.Expand

Causality is a seminal concept in science: any research discipline, from sociology and medicine to physics and chemistry, aims at understanding the causes that could explain the correlations observed… Expand

This work proposes an alternative definition for genuine multipartite entanglement, whereby a quantum state is genuinely network k-entangled if it cannot be produced by applying local trace-preserving maps over several (k-1)-partite states distributed among the parties, even with the aid of global shared randomness.Expand
