In this Letter we show that quantum nonlocality can be superactivated. That is, one can obtain violations of Bell inequalities by tensorizing a local state with itself. In the second part of this work we study how large these violations can be. In particular, we show the existence of quantum states with very low Bell violation but such that five copies of them give very large violations. In fact, this gap can be made arbitrarily large by increasing the dimension of the states. 
Quantum nonlocality can be distributed via separable states
Quantum nonlocality characterizes a kind of important quantum correlation like quantum entanglement.We investigate the distribution of quantum nonlocality between two distant particles that were
Bounds on quantum nonlocality
This thesis phrase the problem of determining the quantum value of a Bell expression in the framework of computational complexity, and presents contributions exploring efficiently computable bounds (based on the spectral norm of some matrices) to the quantumvalue of a particular class of Bell inequalities: the linear games.
On the Activation of Quantum Nonlocality
We report on some quantum properties of physical systems, namely, entanglement, nonlocality, k-copy nonlocality (superactivation of nonlocality), hidden nonlocality (activation of nonlocality through
Activation of the Violation of Svetlichny Inequality for a Broad Class of States
The activation of violation of Svetlichny inequality, reported for the first time in the previous paper, is not an exceptional phenomenon but holds for a broad class of quantum states as well for pure as for mixed, noisy ones.
All quantum states useful for teleportation are nonlocal resources
Understanding the relation between the different forms of inseparability in quantum mechanics is a longstanding problem in the foundations of quantum theory and has implications for quantum
Genuine hidden quantum nonlocality.
This work presents a class of two-qubit entangled states, for which a local model is constructed for the most general local measurements, and shows that the states violate a Bell inequality after local filtering.
Measure-independent anomaly of nonlocality
We show that any Bell local state, with a hidden nonlocality that can be revealed by local filtering, is more, or equally, entangled than nonlocal states. More precisely, it can be deterministically
Entanglement and Nonlocality are Inequivalent for Any Number of Parties.
This work provides a general construction of genuinely multipartite entangled states that do not display genuinely multipartsite nonlocality, thus proving that entanglement and nonlocability are inequivalent for any number of parties.
Superactivation of Measurement-Induced Nonlocality
Nonlocality, as an essential, subtle and intriguing aspect of nature, has many different facets and manifestations. In quantum information theory, nonlocality is usually defined, characterized and
Activation of Nonlocality in Bound Entanglement.
It is shown that genuine hidden nonlocality does not imply entanglement distillability, and a fully biseparable three-qubit bound entangled state with a local model for the most general (nonsequential) measurements is presented, proving for the first time that bound entangled states can admit a local models for general measurements.

Pairs of spin-1/2 particles are prepared in a Werner state (namely, a mixture of singlet and random components). If the random component is large enough, the statistical results of spin measurements
Quantum networks reveal quantum nonlocality.
This work shows, using its framework, how any one-way entanglement distillable state leads to nonlocal correlations and proves that quantum nonlocality is a non-additive resource, which can be activated.
Noise robustness of the nonlocality of entangled quantum states.
This work constructs a local model for the case in which rho is maximally entangled and p is at or below a certain bound, and extends the model to arbitrary rho, providing bounds on the resistance to noise of the nonlocal correlations of entangled states.
Operator space theory: a natural framework for bell inequalities.
This Letter illustrates the power of the field of operator space theory by showing that bipartite quantum states with local, Hilbert space dimension n can violate a Bell inequality by a factor of order sqrt[n]/(log{2}n) when observables with n possible outcomes are used.
Superactivation of bound entanglement.
It is shown that, in a multiparty setting, two nondistillable (bound-entangled) states tensored together can make a distillable state, providing the first proof that some states are truly bound-entangling in the sense of being both nondistillsable and nonseparable asymptotically.
Nonsequential positive-operator-valued measurements on entangled mixed states do not always violate a Bell inequality
We present a local-hidden-variable model for positive-operator-valued measurements (an LHVPOV model) ) on a class of entangled generalized Werner states, thus demonstrating that such measurements do
All bipartite entangled States display some hidden nonlocality.
It is demonstrated that a violation of the Clauser-Horne-Shimony-Holt (CHSH) inequality can be demonstrated in a certain kind of Bell experiment for all entangled states, and it is proved that for each entangled state sigma, there exists another state rho not violating the CHSH inequality.

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.
Superactivation of the Asymptotic Zero-Error Classical Capacity of a Quantum Channel
It is proved that there exist pairs of quantum channels, neither of which individually have any zero-error capacity whatsoever, but such that access to even a single copy of both channels allows classical information to be sent perfectly reliably.
