Recent interest in aspects common to quantum information and condensed matter has prompted a flurry of activity at the border of these disciplines that were far distant until a few years ago. Numerous interesting questions have been addressed so far. Here an important part of this field, the properties of the entanglement in many-body systems, are reviewed. The zero and finite temperature properties of entanglement in interacting spin, fermion, and boson model systems are discussed. Both… 

Measuring entanglement entropy in a quantum many-body system

Making use of the single-site-resolved control of ultracold bosonic atoms in optical lattices, two identical copies of a many-body state are prepared and interfered to directly measure quantum purity, Rényi entanglement entropy, and mutual information.

Entanglement propagation and dynamics in non-additive quantum systems

The prominent collective character of long-range interacting quantum systems makes them promising candidates for quantum technological applications. Yet, lack of additivity overthrows the traditional

The relationship between entanglement, energy and level degeneracy in two-electron systems

The entanglement properties of two-electron atomic systems have been the subject of considerable research activity in recent years. These studies are still somewhat fragmentary, focusing on numerical

Measuring entanglement entropy through the interference of quantum many-body twins

Entanglement is one of the most intriguing features of quantum mechanics. It describes non-local correlations between quantum objects, and is at the heart of quantum information sciences.

Aspects of Entanglement in Quantum Many-Body Systems

Knowledge of the entanglement properties of the wave functions commonly used to describe quantum many-particle systems can enhance our understanding of their correlation structure and provide new

THESIS SUMMARYTEXT:This thesis is made of two parts. In the first one, the issue of entanglement in many body systems is addressed. The concept of entanglement and some of the recent progress on the

Mode Entanglement in Fermionic and Bosonic Harmonium

Mode entanglement in many-body quantum systems is an active area of research. It provides crucial insight into the suitability of many-body systems for quantum information processing tasks. Local

Witnessing nonequilibrium entanglement dynamics in a strongly correlated fermionic chain

Many-body entanglement in condensed matter systems can be diagnosed from equilibrium response functions through the use of entanglement witnesses and operator-specific quantum bounds. Here, we




This article reviews and extends recent results concerning entanglement and frustration in multipartite systems which have some symmetry with respect to the ordering of the particles. Starting point

Many-particle entanglement with Bose–Einstein condensates

This work proposes a method to achieve substantial entanglement of a large number of atoms in a Bose–Einstein condensate, which is then allowed to evolve freely and should be realizable with present technology.

Entanglement and criticality in quantum impurity systems.

It is demonstrated that the entanglement between the spin and its environment is always enhanced at the quantum phase transition resulting in a visible cusp (maximum) in the entropy ofEntanglement.

Divergence of the entanglement range in low-dimensional quantum systems

We study the pairwise entanglement close to separable ground states of a class of one-dimensional quantum spin models. At $T=0$ we find that such ground states separate regions, in the space of the

Reading entanglement in terms of spin configurations in quantum magnets

Abstract. We consider a quantum many-body system made of N interacting S=1/2 spins on a lattice, and develop a formalism which allows to extract, out of conventional magnetic observables, the quantum

Two-point versus multipartite entanglement in quantum phase transitions.

This work analyzes correlations between subsystems for an extended Hubbard model exactly solvable in one dimension, which exhibits a rich structure of quantum phase transitions (QPTs) and discusses the role of negativity at the transition.

We review the theory of continuous-variable entanglement with special emphasis on foundational aspects, conceptual structures and mathematical methods. Much attention is devoted to the discussion of
