Quantum nonlocality of fourqubit entangled states
Abstract
We derive a Bell inequality for testing violation of local realism. Quantum nonlocality of several fourqubit states is investigated. These include the GreenbergerZeilingerHorne (GHZ) state, W state, linear cluster state, and the state {chi}> that has recently been proposed in [Phys. Rev. Lett. 96, 060502 (2006)]. The Bell inequality is optimally violated by {chi}> but not violated by the GHZ state. The linear cluster state also violates the Bell inequality though not optimally. The state {chi}> can thus be discriminated from the linear cluster state by using the inequality. Different aspects of fourpartite entanglement are also studied by considering the usefulness of a family of fourqubit mixed states as resources for twoqubit teleportation. Our results generalize those in [Phys. Rev. Lett. 72, 797 (1994)].

Here we deal with a nonlocality argument proposed by Cabello, which is more general than Hardy's nonlocality argument, but still maximally entangled states do not respond. However, for most of the other entangled states, maximum probability of success of this argument is more than that of the Hardy's argument.

Quantum nonlocality of Nqubit W states
An experimental setup for testing quantum nonlocality of N qubits is proposed. This method is a generalization of the optical setup proposed by Banaszek and Wodkiewicz [Phys. Rev. Lett. 82, 2009 (1999)]. The quantum nonlocality of N qubits can be obtained through its violation of Nqubit Bell inequalities. The correlation function measured in the experiment is described by the Wigner function. The effect of inefficient detector is also considered. 
Nonlocality without inequalities for almost all entangled states of any quantum system
It is shown that it is possible to rule out all local and stochastic hidden variable models accounting for the quantum mechanical predictions implied by almost any entangled quantum state vector of any number of particles whose Hilbert spaces have arbitrary dimensions, without resorting to Belltype inequalities. The present proof makes use of the mathematically precise notion of Bell locality and it involves only simple set theoretic arguments. 
Teleportation of a twoqubit arbitrary unknown state using a fourqubit genuine entangled state with the combination of bellstate measurements
We propose a protocol transferring an arbitrary unknown twoqubit state using the quantum channel of a fourqubit genuine entangled state. Simplifying the fourqubit joint measurement to the combination of Bellstate measurements, it can be realized more easily with currently available technologies. 
Completely positive covariant twoqubit quantum processes and optimal quantum NOT operations for entangled qubit pairs
The structure is investigated of all completely positive quantum operations that transform pure twoqubit input states of a given degree of entanglement in a covariant way. Special cases thereof are quantum NOT operations which transform entangled pure twoqubit input states of a given degree of entanglement into orthogonal states in an optimal way. Based on our general analysis all covariant optimal twoqubit quantum NOT operations are determined. In particular, it is demonstrated that only in the case of maximally entangled input states can these quantum NOT operations be performed perfectly.
