Title: Compatibility conditions from multipartite entanglement measures

Abstract

We consider an arbitrary d{sub 1}(multiply-in-circle sign)d{sub 2}(multiply-in-circle sign){center_dot}{center_dot}{center_dot}(multiply-in-circle sign)d{sub N} composite quantum system and find necessary conditions for general m-party subsystem states to be the reduced states of a common N-party state. These conditions will lead to various monogamy inequalities for bipartite quantum entanglement and partial disorder in multipartite states. Our results are tightly connected with the measures of multipartite entanglement.

  • We discuss the monotonicity of systematically constructed quantities aiming at the quantification of the entanglement properties of multipartite quantum systems, under local operations and classical communication. We provide a necessary and sufficient condition for the monotonicity of generalized multipartite concurrences which qualifies them as legitimate entanglement measures.
  • We compute the multipartite entanglement measures such as the global entanglement of various one- and two-dimensional quantum systems to probe the quantum criticality based on the matrix and tensor product states (MPSs and TPSs). We use the infinite time-evolving block decimation (iTEBD) method to find the ground states numerically in the form of MPSs and TPSs, and then evaluate their entanglement measures by the method of tensor renormalization group (TRG). We find that these entanglement measures can characterize the quantum phase transitions by their derivative discontinuity right at the critical points in all models considered here. We also comment onmore » the scaling behaviors of the entanglement measures by the ideas of quantum-state renormalization group transformations.« less
  • A general mathematical framework is presented to describe local equivalence classes of multipartite quantum states under the action of local unitary and local filtering operations. This yields multipartite generalizations of the singular value decomposition. The analysis naturally leads to the introduction of entanglement measures quantifying the multipartite entanglement (as generalizations of the concurrence for two qubits and the 3-tangle for three qubits), and the optimal local filtering operations maximizing these entanglement monotones are obtained. Moreover, a natural extension of the definition of Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger states to, e.g., 2x2xN systems is obtained.
  • Bound entangled states are states that are entangled but from which no entanglement can be distilled if all parties are allowed only local operations and classical communication. However, in creating these states one needs nonzero entanglement resources to start with. Here, the entanglement of two distinct multipartite bound entangled states is determined analytically in terms of a geometric measure of entanglement and a related quantity. The results are compared with those for the negativity and the relative entropy of entanglement.
  • We investigate the lower bound obtained from experimental data of a quantum state {rho}, as proposed independently by O. Guehne et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 110502 (2007)] and J. Eisert et al. [New J. Phys. 9, 46 (2007)], and apply it to mixed states of three qubits. The measure we consider is the convex-roof extended three-tangle. Our findings highlight an intimate relation to lower bounds obtained recently from so-called characteristic curves of a given entanglement measure. We apply the bounds to estimate the three-tangle present in recently performed experiments aimed at producing a three-qubit Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger (GHZ) state. A nonvanishingmore » lower bound is obtained if the GHZ fidelity of the produced states is larger than 3/4.« less
