We investigate the presence of multipartite entanglement in macroscopic spin chains. We discuss the Heisenberg and the XY model and derive bounds on the internal energy for systems without multipartite entanglement. Based on this we show that in thermal equilibrium the above-mentioned spin systems contain genuine multipartite entanglement, even at finite modest temperatures. 

Bound entanglement in the XY model

We study the multi-spin entanglement for the 1D anisotropic XY model concentrating on the simplest case of three-spin entanglement. As compared to the pairwise entanglement, three-party quantum

Multipartite entanglement in quantum phase transitions

This dissertation collects results about witnessing multipartite entanglement in critical spin systems and free-fermion models both at zero and finite temperature.

Multipartite Entanglement in Topological Quantum Phases.

We witness multipartite entanglement in the ground state of the Kitaev chain-a benchmark model of a one dimensional topological superconductor-also with variable-range pairing, using the quantum

Genuine multipartite entanglement in the XY model

We analyze the $XY$ model characterized by an anisotropy $\gamma$ in an external magnetic field $h$ with respect to its genuine multipartite entanglement content (in the thermodynamic and finite size

Controlled generation of genuine multipartite entanglement in Floquet Ising spin models

We propose a method for generation of genuine multipartite entangled states in a short-range Ising spin chain with periodic global pulses of magnetic field. We consider an integrable and a

A Genuine Multipartite Entanglement Measure Generated by the Parametrized Entanglement Measure

In this paper, we investigate a genuine multipartite entanglement measure based on the geometric method. This measure arrives at the maximal value for the absolutely maximally entangled states and

Multipartite Entanglement at Finite Temperature

The analysis of paradigmatic spin systems showing symmetry-breaking quantum phase transitions and free-fermion models characterized by topological phases shows that topological systems are characterized by the survival of large multipartite entanglement, reaching the Heisenberg limit at finite temperature.

Dynamics of the entanglement spectrum in spin chains

We study the dynamics of the entanglement spectrum, that is the time evolution of the eigenvalues of the reduced density matrices after a bipartition of a one-dimensional spin chain. Starting from

Multipartite entanglement after a quantum quench

We study the multipartite entanglement of a quantum many-body system undergoing a quantum quench. We quantify the multipartite entanglement through the quantum Fisher information (QFI) density, and

Multipartite non-locality and entanglement signatures of a field-induced quantum phase transition

Abstract Quantum correlation measures are limited in practice to a few number of parties, since no general theory is still capable of reaching the thermodynamic limit. In the present work we study



Multipartite entanglement in quantum spin chains

We study the occurrence of multipartite entanglement in spin chains. We show that certain genuine multipartite entangled states, namely W states, can be obtained as ground states of simple XX type

Global entanglement and quantum criticality in spin chains

The entanglement of quantum $XY$ spin chains of arbitrary length is investigated via a recently developed global measure suitable for generic quantum many-body systems. This entanglement is

Entanglement flow in multipartite systems

We investigate entanglement dynamics in multipartite systems, establishing a quantitative concept of entanglement flow: both flow through individual particles and flow along general networks of

Entanglement in the XY spin chain

We consider the entanglement in the ground state of the XY model of an infinite chain. Following Bennett, Bernstein, Popescu and Schumacher, we use the entropy of a sub-system as a measure of

Entanglement versus correlations in spin systems.

The localizable entanglement in familiar spin systems is analyzed and the results on the hand of the Ising spin model are illustrated, in which characteristic features for a quantum phase transition such as a divergingEntanglement length are observed.

Entanglement observables and witnesses for interacting quantum spin systems

We discuss the detection of entanglement in interacting quantum spin systems. First, thermodynamic Hamiltonian-based witnesses are computed for a general class of one-dimensional spin-1/2 models.

Localizable entanglement in antiferromagnetic spin chains

Antiferromagnetic spin chains play an important role in condensed matter and statistical mechanics. Recently XXX spin chain was discussed in relation to information theory. Here we consider

Quantum Spin Chain, Toeplitz Determinants and the Fisher—Hartwig Conjecture

We consider the one-dimensional quantum spin chain, which is called the XX model (XX0 model or isotropic XY model) in a transverse magnetic field. We are mainly interested in the entropy of a block

Localizable Entanglement

We consider systems of interacting spins and study the entanglement that can be localized , on average, between two separated spins by performing local measurements on the remaining spins. This

A general mathematical framework is presented to describe local equivalence classes of multipartite quantum states under the action of local unitary and local filtering operations. This yields
