We derive several entanglement criteria for bipartite continuous variable quantum systems based on the Shannon entropy. These criteria are more sensitive than those involving only second-order moments, and are equivalent to well-known variance product tests in the case of Gaussian states. Furthermore, they involve only a pair of quadrature measurements, and will thus prove extremely useful in the experimental identification of entanglement.

Entanglement and squeezing in continuous-variable systems
We introduce a multi-mode squeezing coefficient to characterize entanglement in $N$-partite continuous-variable systems. The coefficient relates to the squeezing of collective observables in the
Efficient entanglement criteria beyond Gaussian limits using Gaussian measurements.
A formalism to derive entanglement criteria beyond the Gaussian regime that can be readily tested by only homodyne detection is presented and it is shown rigorously that quantum teleportation for continuous variables employs a specific functional form of EPR correlation.
Wehrl entropy, entropic uncertainty relations, and entanglement
The Wehrl entropy is an entropy associated to the Husimi quasi-probability distribution. We discuss how it can be used to formulate entropic uncertainty relations and for a quantification of
Non-Gaussian entanglement in gravitating masses: The role of cumulants
We develop an entanglement criterion with thirdand fourth-order cumulants to detect the entanglement of non-Gaussian states. The efficiency of the entanglement criterion is investigated for

A simple general formalism is proposed for this variant of the separability problem and shows the equivalence of many seemingly different covariance-matrix-based criteria; it offers guidance on the study of and reveals the inherent limitations of covariance and Shannon entropic criteria.
Collision entropy and optimal uncertainty
We propose an alternative measure of quantum uncertainty for pairs of arbitrary observables in the two-dimensional case, in terms of collision entropies. We derive the optimal lower bound for this
State-independent quantum contextuality for continuous variables
Recent experiments have shown that nature violates noncontextual inequalities regardless of the state of the physical system. So far, all these inequalities involve measurements of dichotomic
Relative entropic uncertainty relation for scalar quantum fields
This work presents the first entropic uncertainty relation for a scalar quantum field theory and demonstrates its behavior by considering few particle excitations and the thermal state and shows that the relation implies the multidimensional Heisenberg uncertainty relation.
Certification of high-dimensional entanglement and Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering with cold atomic quantum memory
The advent of structured, high-dimensional entangled states brings new possibilities for quantum imaging, information processing and quantum key distribution. We experimentally generate and

This thesis is a multidisciplinary contribution to the information theory of single-particle Coulomb systems in their relativistic and not relativistic description, to the theory of special functions


A mathematical theory of communication
In this final installment of the paper we consider the case where the signals or the messages or both are continuously variable, in contrast with the discrete nature assumed until now. To a

A Mathematical Theory of Communication
It is proved that the authors can get some positive data rate that has the same small error probability and also there is an upper bound of the data rate, which means they cannot achieve the data rates with any encoding scheme that has small enough error probability over the upper bound.
