The concept of steering was introduced by Schrödinger in 1935 as a generalization of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox for arbitrary pure bipartite entangled states and arbitrary measurements by one party. Until now, it has never been rigorously defined, so it has not been known (for example) what mixed states are steerable (that is, can be used to exhibit steering). We provide an operational definition, from which we prove (by considering Werner states and isotropic states) that steerable…

One-way Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Steering
Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering is a form of quantum nonlocality exhibiting an inherent asymmetry between the observers, Alice and Bob. A natural question is then whether there exist entangled
All-Versus-Nothing Proof of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Steering
This work presents a proof of steering without inequalities rendering the detection of correlations leading to a violation of steering inequalities unnecessary, and demonstrates that there exist many quantum states which do not violate any previously known steering inequality but are indeed steerable.
Quantification of Gaussian quantum steering.
A computable measure of steering for arbitrary bipartite Gaussian states of continuous variable systems is introduced, which reduces to a form of coherent information, which is proven never to exceed entanglement, and to reduce to it on pure states.
Quantifying Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering and expanding the scope of steerability of the two qubit state
A way of quantifying this phenomenon and using it to study the steerability of two qubit states is introduced and the problem, namely expanding the scope of steerable, which guarantees that the state is steerable is discussed.
Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Steering for Mixed Entangled Coherent States
Without the memory stored in the environment, some of the initial states with maximal values of quantum steering, Bell nonlocality, and entanglement can provide a delayed loss of that value during temporal evolution, which is of interest to the current study.
Entanglement, einstein-podolsky-rosen correlations, bell nonlocality, and steering
In a recent work [Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 140402 (2007)] we defined "steering," a type of quantum nonlocality that is logically distinct from both nonseparability and Bell nonlocality. In the bipartite
Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen steering and the steering ellipsoid
The question of which two-qubit states are steerable [i.e., permit a demonstration of Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen (EPR) steering] remains open. Here, a strong necessary condition is obtained for the
Observation of Genuine One-Way Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Steering.
The one-way steerability of an experimentally practical class of entangled states in this general setting is proved and the demonstration of fundamentally asymmetric nonlocality also has practical implications for the distribution of the trust in quantum communication networks.
Joint measurability, Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering, and Bell nonlocality.
It is shown that a set of measurements is not jointly measurable if and only if it can be used for demonstrating Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering, a form of quantum nonlocality, and shown that it does not violate a large class of Bell inequalities.
Inequivalence of entanglement, steering, and Bell nonlocality for general measurements
Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering is a form of inseparability in quantum theory commonly acknowledged to be intermediate between entanglement and Bell nonlocality. However, this statement has so far


On the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox
THE paradox of Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen [1] was advanced as an argument that quantum mechanics could not be a complete theory but should be supplemented by additional variables. These additional
Grothendieck's constant and local models for noisy entangled quantum states
We relate the nonlocal properties of noisy entangled states to Grothendieck's constant, a mathematical constant appearing in Banach space theory. For two-qubit Werner states rho p W
Experimental characterization of continuous-variable entanglement
We present an experimental analysis of quadrature entanglement produced from a pair of amplitude squeezed beams. The correlation matrix of the state is characterized within a set of reasonable
Evidence for the epistemic view of quantum states: A toy theory
We present a toy theory that is based on a simple principle: the number of questions about the physical state of a system that are answered must always be equal to the number that are unanswered in a
Quantum states with Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen correlations admitting a hidden-variable model.

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.
Distant steering: Schrodinger's version of quantum non-separability
Schrodinger pointed out the paradoxical fact that a skilful experimenter can steer, without any interaction, a distant particle (that is correlated with a nearby one on account of past interactions)
Quorum of observables for universal quantum estimation
Quantum tomography is the process of reconstructing the ensemble average of an arbitrary operator (observable or not, including the density matrix), which may not be directly accessible by feasible
Mixed-State Entanglement and Distillation: Is there a “Bound” Entanglement in Nature?
It is shown that if a mixed state can be distilled to the singlet form it must violate partial transposition criterion [A. Peres, Phys. Rev. Lett. 76, 1413 (1996)]. It implies that there are two
Characterization of Gaussian operations and distillation of Gaussian states
It is shown that Gaussian states cannot be distilled by local Gaussian operations and classical communication, and positive (but not completely positive) Gaussian maps are defined.
Characterizing Quantum Theory in Terms of Information-Theoretic Constraints
We show that three fundamental information-theoretic constraints—the impossibility of superluminal information transfer between two physical systems by performing measurements on one of them, the
