Separability of Mixed Quantum States: Linear Contractions and Permutation Criteria

This work introduces a family of so called permutation separability criteria for multipartite states, and finds that, somewhat suprisingly, partial realigment (unlike partial transposition) can detect genuinely tri-parite entanglement.

Is absolute separability determined by the partial transpose?

This work develops an easy-to-use method for showing that an entanglement witness or positive map is unable to detect Entanglement in any such state, and applies this method to many well-known separability criteria.

On separable decompositions of quantum states with strong positive partial transposes

We analyze a class of positive partial transpose (PPT) states such that the positivity of its partial transposition is recognized with respect to the canonical factorization of the original density

Separability Criterion for Arbitrary Multipartite Pure State Based on the Rank of Reduced Density Matrix

It is proved that the rank of reduced density matrices of a multipartite state is closely related to entanglement and can be used to characterizeEntanglement.

Separability criteria based on the bloch representation of density matrices

The necessary condition is proved to be strong enough to detect bound entangled states and the proofs of the sufficient conditions are constructive, thus providing decompositions in pure product states for the states that satisfy them.

The separability and the entanglement (that is, inseparability) of the composite quantum states play important roles in quantum information theory. Mathematically, a quantum state is a trace-class

Product Vectors in the Ranges of Multi-Partite States with Positive Partial Transposes and Permanents of Matrices

In this paper, we consider a system of homogeneous algebraic equations in complex variables and their conjugates, which arise naturally from the range criterion for separability of PPT states. We

On the Separability Criterion of Bipartite States with Certain Non-Hermitian Operators

We construct a density matrix whose elements are written in terms of expectation values of non-Hermitian operators and their products for arbitrary dimensional bipartite states. We then show that any



Inseparable Two Spin- 1 2 Density Matrices Can Be Distilled to a Singlet Form

A quantum system is called inseparable if its density matrix cannot be written as a mixture of product states. In this Letter we apply the separability criterion, local filtering, and Bennett et al.

Broadcasting of entanglement via local copying

We show that inseparability of quantum states can be partially broadcasted (copied or cloned) with the help of local operations, i.e., distant parties sharing an entangled pair of spin-1/2 states can

Any classically correlated state can be modeled by a hidden-variable theory and hence satisfies all generalized Bell's inequalities and the converse of this statement is false.

Complete Characterization of a Quantum Process: The Two-Bit Quantum Gate

We show how to fully characterize a quantum process in an open quantum system. We particularize the procedure to the case of a universal two-qubit gate in a quantum computer. We illustrate the method

Causality, randomness, and the microwave background.

Differences between these two scenarios can give rise to striking signatures in the microwave fluctuations on small scales, which should enable high resolution measurements of CMB anisotropies to distinguish between two broad classes of theories, independent of the precise details of each.
