We introduce an operational procedure to determine, with arbitrary probability and accuracy, optimal entanglement witnesses for every multipartite entangled state. This method provides an operational criterion for separability which is asymptotically necessary and sufficient. Our results are also generalized to detect all different types of multipartite entanglement.

Separability criteria and entanglement witnesses for symmetric quantum states
We study the separability of symmetric bipartite quantum states and show that a single correlation measurement is sufficient to detect the entanglement of any bipartite symmetric state with a
Characterization of multiqubit pure-state entanglement
A necessary and sufficient entanglement criterion based on variances of Mermin-Klyshko's Bell operators is proved for multiqubit pure states. Contrary to Bell's inequalities, entangled pure states
Viable entanglement detection of unknown mixed states in low dimensions
We explore procedures to detect entanglement of unknown mixed states, which can be experimentally viable. The heart of the method is a hierarchy of simple feasibility problems, which provides
Practical methods for witnessing genuine multi-qubit entanglement in the vicinity of symmetric states
We present general numerical methods to construct witness operators for entanglement detection and estimation of the fidelity. Our methods are applied to detecting entanglement in the vicinity of a
Are all maximally entangled states pure
We study if all maximally entangled states are pure through several entanglement monotones. In the bipartite case, we find that the same conditions which lead to the uniqueness of the entropy of
How to construct indecomposable entanglement witnesses
We present a very simple method for constructing indecomposable entanglement witnesses out of a given pair—an entanglement witness W and the corresponding state detected by W. This method may be used
Distillability of Werner states using entanglement witnesses and robust semidefinite programs
We use robust semidefinite programs and entanglement witnesses to study the distillability of Werner states. We perform exact numerical calculations that show two-undistillability in a region of the
Optimal entanglement witnesses from generalized reduction and Robertson maps
We provide a generalization of the reduction and Robertson positive maps in matrix algebras. They give rise to a new class of optimal entanglement witnesses. Their structural physical approximation
Automated machine learning can classify bound entangled states with tomograms
An Automated Machine Learning approach is presented to classify random states of two qutrits as separable or entangled using enough data to perform a quantum state tomography, without any direct measurement of its entanglement.
Probing Genuine Multipartite Entanglement in Large Systems
We introduce a new kind of Entanglement Witness which is appropriate for studying genuine multipartite entanglement in large systems. The witness operator has a form that fits naturally to quantum


Finding optimal strategies for minimum-error quantum-state discrimination
The minimum attainable error rate of a device discriminating between three particularly chosen pure qubit states is calculated with the help of the algorithm proposed.
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
Unextendible product bases and bound entanglement
An unextendible product basis( UPB) for a multipartite quantum system is an incomplete orthogonal product basis whose complementary subspace contains no product state. We give examples of UPBs, and
Complete family of separability criteria
We introduce a family of separability criteria that are based on the existence of extensions of a bipartite quantum state rho to a larger number of parties satisfying certain symmetry properties. It
A semidefinite programming approach to optimal unambiguous discrimination of quantumstates
We consider the problem of unambiguous discrimination between a set of linearly independent pure quantum states. We show that the design of the optimal measurement that minimizes the probability of
Can Quantum-Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete?
Consideration of the problem of making predictions concerning a system on the basis of measurements made on another system that had previously interacted with it leads to the result that one is led to conclude that the description of reality as given by a wave function is not complete.

It is proved that a necessary condition for separability is that a matrix, obtained by partial transposition of {rho}, has only non-negative eigenvalues.

This paper takes an alternative 'randomized' or 'scenario' approach: by randomly sampling the uncertainty parameter, the original infinite constraint set is substituted with a finite set of N constraints, and it is shown that the resulting randomized solution fails to satisfy only a small portion of the original constraints.
Robust Solutions to Least-Squares Problems with Uncertain Data
We consider least-squares problems where the coefficient matrices A,b are unknown but bounded. We minimize the worst-case residual error using (convex) second-order cone programming, yielding an
