We investigate quantum entanglement between two symmetric spatial regions in de Sitter space with the Bunch-Davies vacuum. As a discretized model of the scalar field for numerical simulation, we consider a harmonic chain model. Using the coarse-grained variables for the scalar field, it is shown that the multipartite entanglement on the superhorizon scale exists by checking the monogamy relation for the negativity which quantifies the entanglement between the two regions. Further, we consider…

We apply a master equation approximation with dynamical coarse graining to a pair of detectors interacting with a scalar field. By solving the master equation numerically, we investigate the

It is found that it is possible to access to the entanglement on the super horizon scale if a sufficiently large number of detectors are prepared.

Numerical simulations with the ground state of a 1D lattice at criticality show that the resulting coarse-grained sites require a Hilbert space dimension that does not grow with successive RG transformations, and calculations unveil that ground state entanglement in extended quantum systems is organized in layers corresponding to different length scales.

Entanglement and separability of quantum harmonic oscillator systems at finite temperature

It is proved that at sufficiently high temperatures the thermal state becomes fully separable and bounds on the critical temperature at which this happens are deduced, and the bound becomes tight for a wide class of Hamiltonians with sufficient translation symmetry.

Separability for lattice systems at high temperature

Equilibrium states of infinite extended lattice systems at high temperature are studied with respect to their entanglement. Two notions of separability are offered. They coincide for finite systems
