The decompositions of separable Werner state, and also isotropic state, are well-known tough issues in quantum information theory, in this work we investigate them in the Bloch vector representation, exploring the symmetric informationally complete positive operator-valued measure (SIC-POVM) in the Hilbert space. We successfully get the decomposition for arbitrary $N\times N$ Werner state in terms of regular simplexes. Meanwhile, the decomposition of isotropic state is found to be related to…

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.
Symmetric informationally complete quantum measurements
It is conjecture that a particular kind of group-covariant SIC–POVM exists in arbitrary dimensions, providing numerical results up to dimension 45 to bolster this claim.

A Necessary and Sufficient Criterion for the Separability of Quantum State
In this work, an operational necessary and sufficient criterion for the separability of an arbitrary bipartite mixed state is proposed, by virtue of the multiplicative Horn’s problem.

Separable decompositions of bipartite mixed states
We present a practical scheme for the decomposition of a bipartite mixed state into a sum of direct products of local density matrices, using the technique developed in Li and Qiao (Sci. Rep. 8:1442,
