One of the interesting problems on optimal indecomposable entanglement witnesses is whether there exists an optimal indecomposable witness which neither has the spanning property nor is associated with extremal positive linear map. Here, we answer this question negatively by examining the extremality of the positive linear maps constructed by Qi and Hou [J. Phys. A {\bf 44}, 215305 (2100)]. 
Indecomposability of entanglement witnesses constructed from any permutations
We present a way to construct indecomposable entanglement witnesses from any permutations π with π2 ≠ id for any finite dimensional bipartite systems. Some new bounded entangled states are also

The structural physical approximation conjecture
It was conjectured that the structural physical approximation (SPA) of an optimal entanglement witness is separable (or equivalently, that the SPA of an optimal positive map is entanglement
Entanglement witnesses: construction, analysis and classification
The theory of EWs finds elegant geometric formulation in terms of convex cones and related geometric structures and this work focuses on theoretical analysis of various important notions like decomposability, atomicity, optimality, extremality and exposedness.
Characterization and properties of weakly optimal entanglement witnesses
We present an analysis of the properties and characteristics of weakly optimal entanglement witnesses, that is witnesses whose expectation value vanishes on at least one product vector. Any weakly

Abstract We construct a class of positive linear maps on matrix algebras. We find conditions when these maps are atomic, decomposable and completely positive. We obtain a large class of atomic
Indecomposability of entanglement witnesses
There is no universal EW W so that every entangled state can be detected by W, so constructing as many as possible EWs is important to detect entanglement in states.


One parameter family of indecomposable optimal entanglement witnesses arising from generalized Choi maps
In a recent paper [D. Chru\ifmmode \acute{s}\else \'{s}\fi{}ci\ifmmode \acute{n}\else \'{n}\fi{}ski and F. A. Wudarski, Open Sys. Information Dyn. (unpublished)], it was conjectured that the

Entanglement Witnesses Arising from Exposed Positive Linear Maps
We consider entanglement witnesses arising from positive linear maps which generate exposed extremal rays. We show that every entangled state can be detected by one of these witnesses, and this

It is conjecture that maps parameterized by rotations are optimal, i.e. they provide the strongest tool for detecting quantum entanglement.
Optimal decomposable witnesses without the spanning property
One of the unsolved problems in the characterization of the optimal entanglement witnesses is the existence of optimal witnesses acting on bipartite Hilbert spaces
Extremal extensions of entanglement witnesses: Finding new bound entangled states
In this paper, we discuss extremal extensions of entanglement witnesses based on Choi's map. The constructions are based on a generalization of the Choi map, from which we construct entanglement
Positive maps, positive polynomials and entanglement witnesses
We link the study of positive quantum maps, block positive operators, and entanglement witnesses with problems related to multivariate polynomials. For instance, we show how indecomposable block
Optimization of entanglement witnesses
An entanglement witness (EW) is an operator that allows to detect entangled states. We give necessary and sufficient conditions for such operators to be optimal, i.e. to detect entangled states in an
Characterization of separable states and entanglement witnesses
We provide a canonical form of mixed states in bipartite quantum systems in terms of a convex combination of a separable state and a, so-called, edge state. We construct entanglement witnesses for
Spectral properties of entanglement witnesses
Entanglement witnesses are observables which when measured, detect entanglement in a measured composed system. It is shown what kind of relations between eigenvectors of an observable should be
