We consider the transformation of multisystem entangled states by local quantum operations and classical communication. We show that, for any reversible transformation, the relative entropy of entanglement for any two parties must remain constant. This shows, for example, that it is not possible to convert 2 N three-party GHZ states into 3 N singlets, even in an asymptotic sense. Thus there is true three-party non-locality (i.e. not all three party entanglement is equivalent to two-party entanglement). Our results also allow us to make quantitative. statements about concentrating multi-particle entanglement. Finally, we show that there is true n-party entanglement for any n.

    In this work, we investigate the asymptotic behavior related to the quantum privacy for multipartite systems. In this context, an inequality for quantum privacy was obtained by exploiting of quantum entropy properties. Subsequently, we derive a lower limit for the quantum privacy through the...

    In this paper we explore the non-monotonic nature of entanglement of formation with respect to concurrence for pure bipartite states. For pure bipartite system, one of the basic physical reason of this non-monotonicity character is due to the existence of incomparable states, i.e., the pure...

    The properties of quantum entanglement in the two-photon Tavis–Cummings model with a Kerr nonlinearity are studied in terms of quantum information entropy theory. The reduced quantum entropy is employed to investigate the quantum entanglement between two two-level atoms and a single-mode...

    The Holevo bound is a bound on the mutual information for a given quantum encoding. In 1996 Schumacher, Westmoreland, and Wootters [Phys. Rev. Lett. 76, 3452 (1996)] derived a bound that reduces to the Holevo bound for complete measurements, but that is tighter for incomplete measurements. The...

    A major difficulty in computing nonadiabatic electron transfer (ET) reaction rate constants is that they, in principle, involve the computation of real-time quantum dynamics. The saddle point approximation and the maximum entropy method are in this paper explored with the goal of circumventing...
