# The maximally entangled symmetric state in terms of the geometric measure

@article{Aulbach2010TheME, title={The maximally entangled symmetric state in terms of the geometric measure}, author={Martin Aulbach and Damian Markham and Mio Murao}, journal={New Journal of Physics}, year={2010}, volume={12}, pages={073025} }

The geometric measure of entanglement is investigated for permutation symmetric pure states of multipartite qubit systems, in particular the question of maximum entanglement. This is done with the help of the Majorana representation, which maps an n qubit symmetric state to n points on the unit sphere. It is shown how symmetries of the point distribution can be exploited to simplify the calculation of entanglement and also help find the maximally entangled symmetric state. Using a combination…
