We show that Tsirelson's problem concerning the set of quantum correlations and Connes' embedding problem on finite approximations in von Neumann algebras (known to be equivalent to Kirchberg's QWEP conjecture) are essentially equivalent. Specifically, Tsirelson's problem asks whether the set of bipartite quantum correlations generated between tensor product separated systems is the same as the set of correlations between commuting C*-algebras. Connes' embedding problem asks whether any… 
Tsirelson's problem asks whether the set of nonlocal quantum correlations with a tensor product structure for the Hilbert space coincides with the one where only commutativity between observables
A negative resolution to Connes’ Embedding Problem and Tsirelson’s problem
Connes’ Embedding Problem is a deep question on approximability of certain tracial von Neumann algebras by finite-dimensional matrix algebras. We survey the connections between operator algebras,
Tsirelson’s problem and an embedding theorem for groups arising from non-local games
Tsirelson’s problem asks whether the commuting operator model for two-party quantum correlations is equivalent to the tensor-product model. We give a negative answer to this question by showing that
Problems of Tsirelson and Connes, and a hierarchy of combinatorial parameters
We develop further a general framework of combinatorial nature to study correlations. Our motives are the Tsirelson’s conjecture, concerned with fundamental equivalence between the tensor product
Tsirelson's problems and entanglement breaking rank
This thesis shows that the quantum correlation set is not closed hence solving one of Tsirelson’s problem and also improves the results of Slofstra by reducing the number of experiments and outcomes to five and two, respectively.
Unitary Correlation Sets and their Applications
We relate Connes’ embedding problem in operator algebras to the Brown algebra Unc(n), which is defined as the universal unital C∗-algebra generated by the entries of an n × n unitary matrix. In
Tsirelson's problem and asymptotically commuting unitary matrices
In this paper, we consider quantum correlations of bipartite systems having a slight interaction, and reinterpret Tsirelson's problem (and hence Kirchberg's and Connes's conjectures) in terms of
About the Connes embedding conjecture
In his celebrated paper in 1976, A. Connes casually remarked that any finite von Neumann algebra ought to be embedded into an ultraproduct of matrix algebras, which is now known as the Connes
Synchronous correlation matrices and Connes' embedding conjecture
In a recent paper, the concept of synchronous quantum correlation matrices was introduced and these were shown to correspond to traces on certain C*-algebras. In particular, synchronous correlation
The Connes embedding problem
It is shown that Connes’ embedding problem is equivalent to the weak Tsirelson problem in the setting of two-outcome synchronous correlation sets and the extreme points of three-experiment sets can be realized using a certain class of universal C*-algebras.


Tsirelson's problem asks whether the set of nonlocal quantum correlations with a tensor product structure for the Hilbert space coincides with the one where only commutativity between observables
Tsirelson's Problem
The situation of two independent observers conducting measurements on a joint quantum system is usually modelled using a Hilbert space of tensor product form, each factor associated to one observer.
A convergent hierarchy of semidefinite programs characterizing the set of quantum correlations
It is shown that in some cases it is possible to conclude that a given set of correlations is quantum after performing only a finite number of tests, and used in particular to bound the quantum violation of various Bell inequalities.
Connes' embedding problem and Lance's WEP
A II 1 -factor embeds into the ultraproduct of the hyperfinite II 1 -factor if and only if it satisfies the von Neumann algebraic analogue of Lance's weak expectation property (WEP). We give a
Unbounded Violation of Tripartite Bell Inequalities
We prove that there are tripartite quantum states (constructed from random unitaries) that can lead to arbitrarily large violations of Bell inequalities for dichotomic observables. As a consequence
Maximal violation of Bell's inequalities for algebras of observables in tangent spacetime regions
We continue our study of Bell's inequalities and quantum field theory. It is shown in considerably broader generality than in our previous work that algebras of local observables corresponding to
On non-semisplit extensions, tensor products and exactness of groupC*-algebras
SummaryWe show the existence of a block diagonal extensionB of the suspensionS(A) of the reduced groupC*-algebraA = Cr*(SL2(ℤ)), such that there is only oneC*-norm on the algebraic tensor

Unbounded Violations of Bipartite Bell Inequalities via Operator Space Theory
In this work we show that bipartite quantum states with local Hilbert space dimension n can violate a Bell inequality by a factor of order $${{\rm \Omega} \left(\frac{\sqrt{n}}{\log^2n} \right)}$$
