Quantum entanglement

  title={Quantum entanglement},
  author={Ryszard Horodecki and Paweł Horodecki and Michal Horodecki and Karol Horodecki},
All our former experience with application of quantum theory seems to say that what is predicted by quantum formalism must occur in the laboratory. But the essence of quantum formalism— entanglement, recognized by Einstein, Podolsky, Rosen, and Schrödinger—waited over 70 years to enter laboratories as a new resource as real as energy. This holistic property of compound quantum systems, which involves nonclassical correlations between subsystems, has potential for many quantum processes… 
0 Entanglement in Two and Three Quantum Mechanical Systems
Entanglement is one of most peculiar characteristic of Quantum Mechanics (probably the other most mentioned is the particle tunneling through a barrier) because it entails correlations that
Quantum Entanglement : An Exploration of a Weird Phenomenon 1
In this paper, quantum entanglement, which is a quantum mechanical phenomenon where particles can have influence on others regardless of the distance between them, is deeply explored. A historical

Measuring entanglement entropy in a quantum many-body system
Making use of the single-site-resolved control of ultracold bosonic atoms in optical lattices, two identical copies of a many-body state are prepared and interfered to directly measure quantum purity, Rényi entanglement entropy, and mutual information.
Some Puzzles and Unresolved Issues About Quantum Entanglement
Schrödinger (Proc Camb Philos Soc 31:555–563, 1935) averred that entanglement is the characteristic trait of quantum mechanics. The first part of this paper is simultaneously an exploration of
Mediation of entanglement and nonlocality of a single fermion
This work proposes a method to create entanglement between two distant fermionic particles, which never interact directly by using a third fermion to mediate the correlation, and demonstrates that bipartite maximally entangled states can be generated with an efficiency of about 56%.
Measuring entanglement entropy through the interference of quantum many-body twins
Entanglement is one of the most intriguing features of quantum mechanics. It describes non-local correlations between quantum objects, and is at the heart of quantum information sciences.
Entanglement certification from theory to experiment
The most commonly used quantifiers of entanglement are discussed and the state-of-the-art detection and certification methods are surveyed, including their respective underlying assumptions, from both a theoretical and an experimental point of view.

Entanglement and optimal quantum information processing
This thesis investigates theoretically a number of problems related to the description of entanglement — the nonlocal feature of complex quantum systems — of multiparticle states of finite-dimensional quantum systems and constructs several optimal state independent transformations.


Free-Space distribution of entanglement and single photons over 144 km
Quantum Entanglement is the essence of quantum physics and inspires fundamental questions about the principles of nature. Moreover it is also the basis for emerging technologies of quantum
General Paradigm for Distilling Classical Key From Quantum States
It is demonstrated that all quantum cryptographic protocols can be recast in a way which looks like entanglement theory, with the only change being that instead of distilling Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) pairs, the parties distill private states.
Linking Classical and Quantum Key Agreement: Is There "Bound Information"?
It is proved that a quantum state between two parties is entangled if and only if the classical random variables resulting from optimal measurements provide some mutual classical information between the parties.
Entanglement simulations of Shor's algorithm
We demonstrate that, in the case of Shor's algorithm for factoring, highly mixed states will allow efficient quantum computation, indeed factorization can be achieved efficiently with just one
Computational potency of quantum many-body systems
We establish a framework which allows one to systematically construct novel schemes for measurement-based quantum computation. The technique utilizes tools from many-body physics - based on finitely
Entanglement Properties of Composite Quantum Systems
We present here an overview of our work concerning entanglement properties of composite quantum systems. The characterization of entanglement, i.e. the possibility to assert if a given quantum state

This work discusses new work that shows how entanglement of the Bell-type can be observed in continuous variable, homodyne measurement schemes, and contrasts the various classical limits which emerge from the different ways of assessing teleportation.

A simple information theoretical characterization of the one-way work deficit is given, which turns out to be complementary to a previously known operational measure of classical correlations, theOne-way distillable common randomness.
Cryptographic Distinguishability Measures for Quantum-Mechanical States
This paper surveys four measures of distinguishability for quantum-mechanical states from the point of view of the cryptographer with a particular eye on applications in quantum cryptography, and obtains several inequalities that relate the quantum distinguishability measures to each other.
Entanglement in many-body systems
Recent interest in aspects common to quantum information and condensed matter has prompted a flurry of activity at the border of these disciplines that were far distant until a few years ago.
