We study the nonlocal properties of states resulting from the mixture of an arbitrary entangled state rho of two d-dimensional systems and completely depolarized noise, with respective weights p and 1-p. We first construct a local model for the case in which rho is maximally entangled and p at or below a certain bound. We then extend the model to arbitrary rho. Our results provide bounds on the resistance to noise of the nonlocal correlations of entangled states. For projective measurements…

Entanglement and communication-reducing properties of noisy N-qubit states
We consider properties of states of many qubits, which arise after sending certain entangled states via various noisy channels (white noise, colored noise, local depolarization, dephasing, and
Genuine hidden quantum nonlocality.
This work presents a class of two-qubit entangled states, for which a local model is constructed for the most general local measurements, and shows that the states violate a Bell inequality after local filtering.
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.
Work extraction and fully entangled fraction
For a bipartite state with equal local dimension d, we prove that one can obtain work gain under Landauer's erasure process on one party in identically and independently distributed (iid) limit when
Quantifying Tolerance of a Nonlocal Multi-Qudit State to Any Local Noise
We present a general approach for quantifying tolerance of a nonlocal N-partite state to any local noise under different classes of quantum correlation scenarios with arbitrary numbers of settings
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.
The Werner gap in the presence of simple coloured noise
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
All quantum states useful for teleportation are nonlocal resources
Understanding the relation between the different forms of inseparability in quantum mechanics is a longstanding problem in the foundations of quantum theory and has implications for quantum
Superactivation of quantum steering
We consider Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering in the regime where the parties can perform collective measurements on many copies of a given shared entangled state. We derive a simple and efficient
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.


Quantum nonlocality in two three-level systems
Recently a new Bell inequality has been introduced (CGLMP,KKCZO) that is strongly resistant to noise for maximally entangled states of two d-dimensional quantum systems. We prove that a larger
Grothendieck's constant and local models for noisy entangled quantum states
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
Though this result raises questions about NMR quantum computation, further analysis would be necessary to assess the power of the general unitary transformations, which are indeed implemented in these experiments, in their action on separable states.
Robustness of entanglement
In the quest to completely describe entanglement in the general case of a finite number of parties sharing a physical system of finite-dimensional Hilbert space an entanglement magnitude is
Genuine tripartite entangled states with a local hidden-variable model
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
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
Steering, entanglement, nonlocality, and the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox.
An operational definition is provided, from which it is proved that steerable states are a strict subset of the entangled states, and a strict superset of the states that can exhibit Bell nonlocality.
Volume of the set of separable states
The question of how many entangled or, respectively, separable states there are in the set of all quantum states is considered. We propose a natural measure in the space of density matrices %

Suppose Alice and Bob jointly possess a pure state, |ψ〉. Using local operations on their respective systems and classical communication it may be possible for Alice and Bob to transform |ψ〉 into

The results imply that a necessary condition for an exponential computational speedup is that the amount of entanglement increases with the size n of the computation, and provide an explicit lower bound on the required growth.
