Understanding the relation between nonlocality and entanglement is one of the fundamental problems in quantum physics. In the bipartite case, it is known that these two phenomena are inequivalent, as there exist entangled states of two parties that do not violate any Bell inequality. However, except for a single example of an entangled three-qubit state that has a local model, almost nothing is known about such a relation in multipartite systems. We provide a general construction of genuinely…

Genuinely Multipartite Entangled Quantum States with Fully Local Hidden Variable Models and Hidden Multipartite Nonlocality.
It is shown that, for any number of parties, there exist genuinely multipartite entangled states that admit a fully local hidden variable model, i.e., where all parties are separated, and that, although these states exhibit the strongest form of multipartites entanglement, they cannot lead to Bell inequality violation considering general nonsequential local measurements.
Genuine Multipartite Nonlocality Is Intrinsic to Quantum Networks.
It is found that any network where the parties are connected by bipartite pure entangled states is genuine multipartite nonlocal, independently of the amount of entanglement in the shared states and of the topology of the network.
Any star network of bipartite pure entangled states is genuine multipartite nonlocal
Quantum entanglement and nonlocality are inextricably linked. However, while entanglement is necessary for nonlocality, it is not always sufficient in the standard Bell scenario. We derive sufficient
Towards an equivalence between maximal entanglement and maximal quantum nonlocality
While all bipartite pure entangled states are known to generate correlations violating a Bell inequality, and are therefore nonlocal, the quantitative relation between pure state entanglement and
Restriction on the local realism violation in three-qubit states and its relation with tripartite entanglement
This work describes the states which give the extremal quantum values of a Bell-type inequality for a given value of the tripartite entanglement and shows that such extremal states can be reached if one introduced an appropriate order induced by the three-πEntanglement measure.
Quantum steering , entanglement and Bell nonlocality
Quantum steering, the ability of one party to perform a measurement on their side of an entangled system with different outcomes leading to different sets of states for another part of the entangled
Relating Entanglement and Nonlocality
Both entanglement and nonlocality are central concepts in modern physics. Their relation, however, is not fully understood yet. In 1964, Bell showed that some entangled states are nonlocal, in the
Constructing genuinely entangled multipartite states with applications to local hidden variables and local hidden states models
Building upon the results of R. Augusiak et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 115, 030404 (2015)] we develop a general approach to the generation of genuinely entangled multipartite states of any number of
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.
Constructions of genuinely entangled multipartite states with applications to local hidden variables ( LHV ) and states ( LHS ) models
Building upon the results of [R. Augusiak et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 115, 030404 (2015)] we develop a general approach to the generation of genuinely entangled multipartite states of any number of


All entangled states display some hidden nonlocality
A well-known manifestation of quantum entanglement is that it may lead to correlations that are inexplicable within the framework of a locally causal theory—a fact that is demonstrated by the quantum
Definitions of multipartite nonlocality
n a multipartite setting, it is possible to distinguish quantum states that are genuinely n-way entangled from those that are separable with respect to some bipartition. Similarly, the nonlocal
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.
Noise robustness of the nonlocality of entangled quantum states.
This work constructs a local model for the case in which rho is maximally entangled and p is at or below a certain bound, and extends the model to arbitrary rho, providing bounds on the resistance to noise of the nonlocal correlations of entangled states.
Superactivation of quantum nonlocality.
In this Letter we show that quantum nonlocality can be superactivated. That is, one can obtain violations of Bell inequalities by tensorizing a local state with itself. In the second part of this
Operational framework for nonlocality.
It is shown that the standard definition of multipartite nonlocality, due to Svetlichny, is inconsistent with this operational approach: according to it, genuine tripartite nonLocality could be created by two collaborating 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.
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
Steering, entanglement, nonlocality, and the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox.
An operational definition is provided, from which it is proved that steerable states are a strict subset of the entangled states, and a strict superset of the states that can exhibit Bell nonlocality.
