The Mermin inequality provides a criterion for experimentally ruling out local-realistic descriptions of multiparticle systems. A violation of this inequality means that the particles must be entangled, but does not, in general, indicate whether N-partite entanglement is present. For this, a stricter bound is required. Here we discuss this bound and use it to propose two different schemes for demonstrating N-partite entanglement with atoms. The first scheme involves Bose–Einstein condensates… Expand

Classifying N-qubit entanglement via Bell's inequalities.
All the states of N qubits can be classified into N-1 entanglement classes from 2-entangled to N-ENTangled (fully entangled) states, where N is the number of qubits and the index depends on the partition of N. Expand
