The experimental determination of entanglement is a major goal in the quantum information field. In general, the knowledge of the state is required in order to quantify its entanglement. Here we express a lower bound to the robustness of entanglement of a state based only on the measurement of the energy observable and on the calculation of a separability energy. This allows the estimation of entanglement dismissing the knowledge of the state in question.

Quantifying necessary quantum resources for nonlocality

Nonlocality is one of the most important resources for quantum information protocols. The observation of nonlocal correlations in a Bell experiment is the result of appropriately chosen measurements

BCS Effect on Quantum Correlation and Tripartite Quantum Entanglement in Spinless Gapless Tomonaga-Luttinger Liquid and Cuprate Superconducting Nanowire

It has been known that quantum information offers powerful instruments to investigate the properties of many-body systems. In this framework, we touched two particular aspect of this activity, namely

Automated machine learning can classify bound entangled states with tomograms

An Automated Machine Learning approach is presented to classify random states of two qutrits as separable or entangled using enough data to perform a quantum state tomography, without any direct measurement of its entanglement.

Many-Body Entanglement in Classical & Quantum Simulators

This thesis introduces schemes for verifying and distributing entanglement in a quantum dot simulator, and confirms that quantum dot simulators would be natural candidates for simulating many-body localization (MBL) - a recently emerged phenomenon that seems to evade traditional statistical mechanics.

Machine-Learning-Assisted Many-Body Entanglement Measurement.

This work proposes a machine-learning-assisted scheme to measure the entanglement between arbitrary subsystems of size N A and N B, with O(N_{A}+N_{B}) measurements, and without any prior knowledge of the state.

Entanglement detection and distillation for arbitrary bipartite systems

An inequality for detecting entanglement and distillability of arbitrary dimensional bipartite systems is presented and it is shown that this inequality provides a necessary and sufficient condition for distillable states.

Witnessed Entanglement

A new measure of entanglement for mixed states is presented that can be approximately computable for every state and can be used to quantify all types of multipartiteEntanglement.

Energy as an entanglement witness for quantum many-body systems (15 pages)

We investigate quantum many-body systems where all low-energy states are entangled. As a tool for quantifying such systems, we introduce the concept of the entanglement gap, which is the difference

The robustness of entanglement results of Vidal and Tarrach [Phys. Rev. A 59, 141 (1999)] considered the problem whereby an entangled state is mixed with a separable state so that the overall state

Exchange interactions in spin systems can give rise to quantum entanglement in the ground and thermal states of the systems. We consider a spin tetramer, with spins of magnitude $\frac{1}{2}$, in

We show that magnetic susceptibility can reveal spin entanglement between individual constituents of a solid, while magnetization describes their local properties. We then show that magnetization and

We construct entanglement witnesses using fundamental quantum operators of spin models which contain two-particle interactions and have a certain symmetry. By choosing the Hamiltonian as such an

Any classically correlated state can be modeled by a hidden-variable theory and hence satisfies all generalized Bell's inequalities and the converse of this statement is false.
