The analysis of multiparticle quantum states is a central problem in quantum information processing. This task poses several challenges for experimenters and theoreticians. We give an overview over current problems and possible solutions concerning systematic errors of quantum devices, the reconstruction of quantum states, and the analysis of correlations and complexity in multiparticle density matrices.

A brief overview of the concept of entanglement in quantum mechanics is given, and the major results and open problems related to the recent scientific progress in this field are discussed.

Taming multiparticle entanglement.

A criterion for entanglement which can easily be calculated by using semidefinite programing and improves all existing approaches significantly is presented, leading to an exponential improvement compared with existing schemes.

Genuine multiparticle entanglement of permutationally invariant states

We consider the problem of characterizing genuine multiparticle entanglement for permutationally invariant states using the approach of PPT mixtures. We show that the evaluation of this necessary

Analytical characterization of the genuine multiparticle negativity

The genuine multiparticle negativity is a measure of genuine multiparticle entanglement which can be numerically calculated. We present several results of how this entanglement measure can be

Systematic errors in current quantum state tomography tools.

Common tools for obtaining physical density matrices in experimental quantum state tomography are shown here to cause systematic errors that can be avoided using linear evaluation of the data or by linearizing measurement operators yielding reliable and computational simple error bounds.

Characterizing Ground and Thermal States of Few-Body Hamiltonians.

Methods to characterize the states generated by two- and, more generally, k-body Hamiltonians as well as the convex hull of these sets leads to new insights into the question of which states are uniquely determined by their marginals and to a generalization of the concept of entanglement.

Detecting the drift of quantum sources: not the de Finetti theorem.

A method to detect and characterize the drift of a nonstationary quantum source is proposed and analyzed, and it is shown that for single-photon wave packets the measurement is implemented by the Hong-Ou-Mandel effect.

Almost every pure state of three qubits is completely determined by its two-particle reduced density matrices.

Almost every pure state of three qubits is completely determined by its two-particle reduced density matrices, and it is shown that there is no correlation between n-1 particles and n-way correlation.

Efficient Numerical Algorithm on Irreducible Multiparty Correlations

We develop a numerical algorithm to calculate the degrees of irreducible multiparty correlations for an arbitrary multipartite quantum state, which is efficient for any quantum state of up to five
