# Grothendieck's constant and local models for noisy entangled quantum states

@article{Acn2006GrothendiecksCA, title={Grothendieck's constant and local models for noisy entangled quantum states}, author={Antonio Ac{\'i}n and Nicolas Gisin and Ben Toner}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={2006}, volume={73}, pages={062105} }

We relate the nonlocal properties of noisy entangled states to Grothendieck's constant, a mathematical constant appearing in Banach space theory. For two-qubit Werner states rho p W =p|psi–><psi–|+(1–p)[openface 1]/4, we show that there is a local model for projective measurements if and only if p<=1/KG(3), where KG(3) is Grothendieck's constant of order 3. Known bounds on KG(3) prove the existence of this model at least for p<~0.66, quite close to the current region of Bell violation, p~0.71…

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.

The ‘Werner gap’ is the range of relevant parameters characterizing a quantum state for which it is both entangled and admits a local hidden variable model. Werner showed that the gap becomes maximal…
