What proportions of certain sets of PPT-two-retrit states are bound entangled or separable?

For two particular (twelve-and thirteen-dimensional) sets of two-retrit states (corresponding to 9 x 9 density matrices with real off-diagonal entries), I have been able to calculate the Hilbert-...

What do entanglement cost and distillable entanglement have to do with measuring entanglement?

So far what I have learned is that von-Neumann entropy is a tool to measure or quantify information and therefore entanglement for a given pure state system. However, similar concepts emerge from the ...

How does magic state distillation overhead scale compare to quantum advantages?

I'm interested in the model of quantum computation by magic state injection, that is where we have access to the Clifford gates, a cheap supply of ancilla qubits in the computational basis, and a few ...

Entanglement distillation by local operations and post-selection using one entanglement pair

Consider the state $|X\rangle = \sqrt{0.9} |00\rangle + \sqrt{0.1} |11\rangle$, shared between Alice and Bob, who are located far apart. Alice brings in an ancilla qubit at her location (left-most ...
