We improve previously proposed conditions each measure of entanglement has to satisfy. We present a class of entanglement measures that satisfy these conditions and show that the quantum relative entropy and Bures metric generate two measures of this class. We calculate the measures of entanglement for a number of mixed two spin-1/2 systems using the quantum relative entropy, and provide an efficient numerical method to obtain the measures of entanglement in this case. In addition, we prove a…

This work presents a new expression for the geometric measure of entanglement in terms of the maximal fidelity with a separable state, and proves that the number of elements in an optimal decomposition w.r.t.the geometric measure is bounded from above by the Caratheodory bound.

A Theory of Entanglement

The basis of a theory of entanglement for quantum states is presented, which begins with a classical theory of entangled discrete measures, then treats quantum mechanics and discusses the statistics of bounded operators on a Hilbert space in terms of context coefficients.

The first result presents a new approach for improving standard witnessing techniques by using additional information obtained within witnessing experiments and thus, cope with unexpected experimental imperfections, and the second result illustrates the use of entanglement witnessing in construction of measures ofEntanglement that are independent of the specific description of measurement devices similar to a Bell scenario.

It is shown that many properties of the original measure are inherited by the family, in particular weak monotonicity under transformations applied by means of local operations and classical communication (LOCC) and they may increase on average under stochastic LOCC.
