Entanglement of Indistinguishable Particles Shared between Two Parties
MetadataShow full item record
Using an operational definition we quantify the entanglement, EP, between two parties who share an arbitrary pure state of N indistinguishable particles. We show that EP=EM, where EM is the bipartite entanglement calculated from the mode-occupation representation. Unlike EM, EP is superadditive. For example, EP=0 for any single-particle state, but the state |1?|1?, where both modes are split between the two parties, has EP=1/2. We discuss how this relates to quantum correlations between particles, for both fermions and bosons.
