Quantum entanglement has a central role in many areas of physics. To grasp the essence of this phenomenon, it is fundamental to understand how different manifestations of entanglement relate to each other. In 1999, Peres conjectured that Bell nonlocality is equivalent to distillability of entanglement. The intuition of Peres was that the non-classicality of an entangled state, as witnessed via Bell inequality violation, implies that pure entanglement can be distilled from this state, hence… 
Family of nonlocal bound entangled states
Bound entanglement, being entangled yet not distillable, is essential to our understandings of the relations between nonlocality and entanglement besides its applications in certain quantum
Characterizing Entanglement and Quantum Correlations Constrained by Symmetry
Entanglement and nonlocal correlations constitute two fundamental resources for quantum information processing, as they allow for novel tasks that are otherwise impossible in a classical scenario.
Local hidden?variable models for entangled quantum states
While entanglement and violation of Bell inequalities were initially thought to be equivalent quantum phenomena, we now have different examples of entangled states whose correlations can be described

It has been shown that there exist Bell inequalities constructed from symmetric oneand two-body correlations that are violated by certain quantum states involving any number of particles. However,
The Schmidt number of a quantum state cannot always be device-independently certified
A simple proof that there exist quantum states, whose entanglement content, as measured by the Schmidt number, cannot be device-independently certified for all possible sequential measurements on any number of copies.
Free versus Bound Entanglement: Machine learning tackling a NP-hard problem
A large family of magically symmetric states of bipartite qutrits is defined, which shows that this kind of entanglement is not rare, and reveals that there is a strong 2-dimensional (linear) sub-structure in the set of bound entangled states.
Why standard entanglement theory is inappropriate for the study of Bell scenarios
It is argued that, in spite of the near-universal endorsement of the LOCC paradigm by the quantum information community, this is the wrong choice for one of the most prominent applications of entanglement theory, namely, the study of Bell scenarios and the nonclassicality of correlations should be quantified instead by local operations and shared randomness (LOSR).
Negativity vs. Purity and Entropy in Witnessing Entanglement
It is shown that comparing joint and marginal purities is overwhelmingly more successful at high dimension at identifying entanglement than comparing Joint and marginal von Neumann entropies, in spite of requiring fewer resources.
Locality of three-qubit Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger-symmetric states
The hierarchy of nonlocality and entanglement in multipartite systems is one of the fundamental problems in quantum physics. We study this topic in three-qubit systems considering the entanglement
Robust self-testing of two-qubit states
A proof that in the usual formulation, the CHSH inequality only becomes a self-test when the violation exceeds a certain threshold is shown, which shows that self-testing scenarios fall into two distinct classes depending on whether they exhibit such a threshold or not.


Steering bound entangled States: a counterexample to the stronger Peres conjecture.
A method is provided to generate systematically bound entangled quantum states which can still be used for steering and, therefore, to rule out local hidden state models and sheds light on the relations between the various views on quantum correlations.
Quantum nonlocality does not imply entanglement distillability.
This work presents analytically a 3-qubit entangled state that is separable along any bipartition, and implies that no bipartite entanglement can be distilled from this state, which is thus fully bound entangled.
Quantum entanglement
All our former experience with application of quantum theory seems to say that what is predicted by quantum formalism must occur in the laboratory. But the essence of quantum formalism— entanglement,
All bipartite entangled States display some hidden nonlocality.
It is demonstrated that a violation of the Clauser-Horne-Shimony-Holt (CHSH) inequality can be demonstrated in a certain kind of Bell experiment for all entangled states, and it is proved that for each entangled state sigma, there exists another state rho not violating the CHSH inequality.

It is proved that for all the states violating a Bell inequality there exists at least one splitting of the parties into two groups such that some pure-state entanglement can be distilled, obtaining a connection between Bell inequalities and bipartite distillable entanglements.
Entanglement swapping of noisy states: A kind of superadditivity in nonclassicality
We address the question as to whether an entangled state that satisfies local realism will give a violation of the same after entanglement swapping in a suitable scenario. We consider such a
Negativity and steering: A stronger Peres conjecture
The violation of a Bell inequality certifies the presence of entanglement even if neither party trusts their measurement devices. Recently Moroder et al. [T. Moroder, J.-D. Bancal, Y.-C. Liang, M.
Device-independent entanglement quantification and related applications.
It is shown that the method presented provides a rigorous way to construct dimension witnesses, gives new insights into the question whether bound entangled states can violate a Bell inequality, and can be used to construct device-independent entanglement witnesses involving an arbitrary number of parties.
Quantum networks reveal quantum nonlocality.
This work shows, using its framework, how any one-way entanglement distillable state leads to nonlocal correlations and proves that quantum nonlocality is a non-additive resource, which can be activated.
Genuine hidden quantum nonlocality.
This work presents a class of two-qubit entangled states, for which a local model is constructed for the most general local measurements, and shows that the states violate a Bell inequality after local filtering.
