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 becomes nonentangled. In general, it is known that there are also cases when entangled states are mixed with other entangled states and where the sum is separable. In this paper, we treat a more general case where entangled states can be mixed with any states so that the resulting mixture is… 
Are all maximally entangled states pure
We study if all maximally entangled states are pure through several entanglement monotones. In the bipartite case, we find that the same conditions which lead to the uniqueness of the entropy of
On the Schmidt robustness of pure states
Robustness measures as introduced by Vidal and Tarrach (1999 Robustness of entanglement Phys. Rev. A 59 141–55) quantify the extent to which entangled states remain entangled under mixing.
Quantifying entanglement with witness operators
We present a unifying approach to the quantification of entanglement based on entanglement witnesses, which includes several already established entanglement measures such as the negativity, the
Entanglement, mixedness, and perfect local discrimination of orthogonal quantum states
It is shown that local distinguishability of orthogonal mixed states can be completely characterized by local distinguishability of their supports irrespective of entanglement and mixedness of the
Entanglement detection
How can one prove that a given state is entangled? In this paper we review different methods that have been proposed for entanglement detection. We first explain the basic elements of entanglement
Quantitative entanglement witnesses
All these tests—based on the very same data—give rise to quantitative estimates in terms of entanglement measures, and if a test is strongly violated, one can also infer that the state was quantitatively very much entangled, in the bipartite and multipartite setting.
Generalized Steering Robustness of Bipartite Quantum States
EPR steering is a kind of quantum correlation that is intermediate between entanglement and Bell nonlocality. In this paper, by recalling the definitions of unsteerability and steerability, some

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.
Entanglement robustness and geometry in systems of identical particles
The robustness properties of bipartite entanglement in systems of N bosons distributed in M different modes are analyzed using a definition of separability based on commuting algebras of observables,
Bounds on multipartite entangled orthogonal state discrimination using local operations and classical communication.
We show that entanglement guarantees difficulty in the discrimination of orthogonal multipartite states locally. The number of pure states that can be discriminated by local operations and classical


Convexity and the separability problem of quantum mechanical density matrices
Abstract A finite-dimensional quantum mechanical system is modelled by a density ρ, a trace one, positive semi-definite matrix on a suitable tensor product space H[N]. For the system to demonstrate
