    A Witness of Multipartite Entanglement Strata

    Full text link
    We describe an entanglement witness for NN-qubit mixed states based on the properties of NN-point correlation functions. Depending on the degree of violation, this witness can guarantee that no more than MM qubits are separable from the rest of the state for any MNM\leq N, or that there is some genuine MM-party or greater multipartite entanglement present. We illustrate the use our criterion by investigating the existence of entanglement in thermal stabilizer states, where we demonstrate that the witness is capable of witnessing bound-entangled states. Intriguingly, this entanglement can be shown to persist in the thermodynamic limit at arbitrary temperature.Comment: 7 pages, 1 figur

The preface summarizes the conference speeches, papers, and discussant comments.Economic stabilization
