How to show that an n-level system is entangled?

"How do I show that a two-qubit state is an entangled state?" includes an answer which references the Peres–Horodecki criterion. This works for $2\times 2$ and $2\times3$ dimensional cases; however, ...

Is quantum computing limited to a superposition of only two states?

From Wikipedia: A qubit is a two-state quantum system [...] There are two possible outcomes for the measurement of a qubit — usually $0$ and $1$, like a bit. The difference is that whereas the state ...

What is the difference between a qudit system with d=4 and a two-qubit system?

I understand that a qudit is a quantum $d$-state system. If $d=4$, is this exactly the same as a two-qubit system, which also presents $4$ quantum states? The Hilbert space is the same, right? Are ...

In qubit/qudit terms, where is the experimental limit between S=3/2 and 2·S=1/2?

This question is inspired by "What is the difference between a qudit system with d=4 and a two-qubit system?", as an experimental follow-up. Consider for illustration these two particular cases: ...

Do any specific types of qudits other than qubits and qutrits have a name?

For example, has anyone seen something like: "quqrit" for a 4-level system[1], or "qupit" for a 5-level system[2] ? 1 From "quad" or "quart" since "tetra" would be qutrit, which is already a 3-level ...

Difference between 3 qubits, 2 qutrits & 1 six level qunit

What is the difference between 3 qubits, 2 qutrits and a 6th level qunit? Are they equivalent? Why / why not? Can 6 classical bits be super-densely coded into each?

Are qudit graph states well-defined for non-prime dimension?

Qudit graph states are $d$-dimension generalisations of qubit graph states such that each state is represented by a weighted graph $G$ (with no self-loops) such that each edge $(i, j)$ is assigned a ...

How to represent a qubyte?

I was not able to locate any visuals online. The visual I have in my head is a cube w/ bloch spheres as the eight vertices. I am also curious about a matrix representation, although I am not sure ...
