Ordering of Entangled States for Different Entanglement Measures

University essay from Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap och fysik

Abstract:

Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon which has shown great potential use in modern technical implementations, but there is still much development needed in the field. One major problem is how to measure the amount of entanglement present in a given entangled state. There are numerous different entanglement measures suggested, all satisfying some conditions being of either operational, or more abstract, mathematical nature. However, in contradiction to what one might expect, the measures show discrepancies in the ordering of entangled states. Concretely this means that with respect to one measure, a state can be more entangled than another state, but the ordering may be opposite for the same states using another measure. In this thesis we take a closer look at some of the most commonly occurring entanglement measures, and find examples of states showing inequivalent entanglement ordering for the different measures.
