Entanglement Theory

 Multipartite entanglement is of paramount interest in many fields of physics. Whereas much is known about the quantification and qualification of bipartite entanglement and its applications many fundamental questions are still open in the multipartite setting. We are working on the characterization of multipartite entanglement with the intention to identify new operational entanglement measures, which measure the usefulness of a state for certain purposes, to discover new applications of multipartite entanglement, and to develop protocols for their experimental realization.
