We present a family of three-qubit quantum states with a basic local hidden-variable model. Any von Neumann measurement can be described by a local model for these states. We show that some of these states are genuine three-partite entangled and also distillable. The generalization for larger dimensions or higher number of parties is also discussed. As a by-product, we present symmetric extensions of two-qubit Werner states.

Algorithmic Construction of Local Hidden Variable Models for Entangled Quantum States.
This work presents a simple method for building LHV models, applicable to any entangled state and considering continuous sets of measurements, which leads to a sequence of tests which fully captures the set of quantum states admitting a LHV model.
General Method for Constructing Local Hidden Variable Models for Entangled Quantum States.
The first general test to decide whether a quantum state is local, and it is shown that the test can be implemented by semidefinite programing and can be applied to any given state.
Genuinely Multipartite Entangled Quantum States with Fully Local Hidden Variable Models and Hidden Multipartite Nonlocality.
It is shown that, for any number of parties, there exist genuinely multipartite entangled states that admit a fully local hidden variable model, i.e., where all parties are separated, and that, although these states exhibit the strongest form of multipartites entanglement, they cannot lead to Bell inequality violation considering general nonsequential local measurements.
Local hidden?variable models for entangled quantum states
While entanglement and violation of Bell inequalities were initially thought to be equivalent quantum phenomena, we now have different examples of entangled states whose correlations can be described
Local hidden variable models for entangled quantum States using finite shared randomness.
It is shown that essentially all entangled states admitting a LHV model can be simulated with finite share randomness, and the most economical model simulates noisy two-qubit Werner states using only log_{2}(12)≃3.58 bits of shared randomness.
Entanglement without hidden nonlocality
It is shown that there exist entangled states without hidden nonlocality, and it is proved that some two-qubit Werner states still admit a local hidden variable model after any possible local filtering on a single copy of the state.
Constructing genuinely entangled multipartite states with applications to local hidden variables and local hidden states models
Building upon the results of R. Augusiak et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 115, 030404 (2015)] we develop a general approach to the generation of genuinely entangled multipartite states of any number of
Entanglement and Nonlocality are Inequivalent for Any Number of Parties.
This work provides a general construction of genuinely multipartite entangled states that do not display genuinely multipartsite nonlocality, thus proving that entanglement and nonlocability are inequivalent for any number of parties.
Noise robustness of the nonlocality of entangled quantum states.
This work constructs a local model for the case in which rho is maximally entangled and p is at or below a certain bound, and extends the model to arbitrary rho, providing bounds on the resistance to noise of the nonlocal correlations of entangled states.


Symmetric extensions of quantum States and local hidden variable theories.
A simple and efficient algorithmic approach for the problem of constructing local hidden variable theories for quantum states based on constructing a so-called symmetric quasiextension of the quantum state that gives rise to a localhidden variable model with a certain number of settings for the observers Alice and Bob.
Nonsequential positive-operator-valued measurements on entangled mixed states do not always violate a Bell inequality
We present a local-hidden-variable model for positive-operator-valued measurements (an LHVPOV model) ) on a class of entangled generalized Werner states, thus demonstrating that such measurements do
Communication cost of simulating Bell correlations.
For the simplest and most important case of local projective measurements on an entangled Bell pair state, it is shown that exact simulation is possible using local hidden variables augmented by just one bit of classical communication.
Classification of mixed three-qubit states.
A classification of mixed three-qubit states is introduced, in which the classes of separable, biseparable, W, and Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger states are successively embedded into each other.

This work proves genuine four-partite entanglement and study its persistency, demonstrating remarkable differences from the usual Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger (GHZ) state.
Configuration of separability and tests for multipartite entanglement in bell-type experiments.
It is proved that when the two measured observables are assumed to precisely anticommute, a stronger quadratic inequality can be used as a witness of full n-partite entanglement.
Decoherence-free quantum information processing with four-photon entangled states.
It is demonstrated that spontaneous parametric down conversion can be used to generate four-photon states which enable the encoding of one qubit in a decoherence-free subspace and the immunity against noise is verified by quantum state tomography of the encoded qubit.

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.
Simulating maximal quantum entanglement without communication.
It is shown that a single instance of the latter elementary nonlocal correlation suffices to simulate exactly all possible projective measurements that can be performed on a maximally entangled state of two qubits, with no communication needed at all.
Separability properties of tripartite states with U ⊗ U ⊗ U symmetry
We study separability properties in a 5-dimensional set of states of quantum systems composed of three subsystems of equal but arbitrary finite Hilbert space dimension d. These are the states, which
