We prove that any multiple-copy entanglement transformation S. Bandyopadhyay, V. Roychowdhury, and
U. Sen, Phys. Rev. A 65, 052315 2002 can be implemented by a suitable entanglement-assisted local
transformation D. Jonathan and M. B. Plenio, Phys. Rev. Lett. 83, 3566 1999 . Furthermore, we show that
the combination of multiple-copy entanglement transformation and the entanglement-assisted one is still
equivalent to the pure entanglement-assisted one. The mathematical structure of multiple-copy entanglement
transformations then is carefully investigated. Many interesting properties of multiple-copy entanglement
transformations are presented, which exactly coincide with those satisfied by the entanglement-assisted ones.
Most interestingly, we show that an arbitrarily large number of copies of state should be considered in
multiple-copy entanglement transformations.
