Entangled states, such as the Bell and GHZ states, are generated from separable states using matrices known to satisfy the Yang-Baxter equation and its generalization. This remarkable fact hints at the possibility of using braiding operators as quantum entanglers, and is part of a larger speculated connection between topological and quantum entanglement. We push the analysis of this connection forward, by showing that supersymmetry algebras can be used to construct large families of solutions…

Braiding quantum gates from partition algebras
A solution-generating technique is introduced to solve the $(d,m,l)$-generalized Yang-Baxter equation, for $m/2\leq l \leq m$, which allows to systematically construct families of unitary and non-unitary braiding operators that generate the full braid group.
Generating W states with braiding operators
Braiding operators can be used to create entangled states out of product states, thus establishing a correspondence between topological and quantum entanglement. This is well-known for maximally
Yang-Baxter and the Boost: splitting the difference
In this paper we continue our classification of regular solutions of the Yang-Baxter equation using the method based on the spin chain boost operator developed in [1]. We provide details on how to

In these lecture notes we aim for a pedagogical introduction to both classical and quantum integrability. Starting from Liouville integrability and passing through Lax pair and r-matrix we discuss


Braiding operators are universal quantum gates
This paper explores the role of unitary braiding operators in quantum computing. We show that a single specific solution R (the Bell basis change matrix) of the Yang–Baxter equation is a universal
GHZ States, Almost-Complex Structure and Yang–Baxter Equation
The Bell matrix is defined to yield all the Greenberger–Horne–Zeilinger (GHZ) states from the product basis, proved to form a unitary braid representation and presented as a new type of solution of the quantum Yang–Baxter equation.
The Compositional Structure of Multipartite Quantum Entanglement
It is shown that multipartite quantum entanglement admits a compositional structure, and hence is subject to modern computer science methods, and induces a generalised graph state paradigm for measurement-based quantum computing.
Generalized Yang-Baxter Equations and Braiding Quantum Gates
Solutions to the Yang-Baxter equation - an important equation in mathematics and physics - and their afforded braid group representations have applications in fields such as knot theory, statistical
Extraspecial two-Groups, generalized Yang-Baxter equations and braiding quantum gates
It is suggested that through their connection with braiding gates, extraspecial 2-groups, unitary representations of the braid group and the GHZ states may play an important role in quantum error correction and topological quantum computing.
Yang–Baxter operators need quantum entanglement to distinguish knots
Any solution to the Yang–Baxter equation yields a family of representations of braid groups. Under certain conditions, identified by (Turaev 1988 Inventiones Math. 92 527–53), the appropriately

In this paper, I will point out some curious connections between entangled quantum states and classical knot configurations. In particular, I will show that the entanglement of the particles in a
Multipartite d-level GHZ bases associated with generalized braid matrices
We investigate the generalized braid relation for an arbitrary multipartite d-level system and its application to quantum entanglement. By means of finite-dimensional representations of quantum plane
New type of solutions of Yang-Baxter equations, quantum entanglement and related physical models
Starting from the Kauffman-Lomonaco braiding matrix transforming the natural basis to Bell states, the spectral parameter describing the entanglement is introduced through Yang-Baxterization. It
