1 Entanglement in fermionic systems M.C. Bañuls, J.I. Cirac, M.M. Wolf

2 Goal Definition of entanglement in a system of fermions given the presence of superselection rules that affect the concept of locality

3 Contents Basic ingredients Definitions Characterization and measures Many copies

4 Fermionic Systems Indistinguishability –Physical states restricted to totally (anti)symmetric part of Hilbert space –No tensor product structure –Second quantization language –Entanglement between modes Other SSR affect locality –Physical states have even or odd number of fermions –Physical operators do not change the parity

5 Fermionic Systems System of m=m A +m B fermionic modes –partition A={1, 2, … m A } –partition B={m A +1, … m A +m B } Basic objects: creation and annihilation operators canonical anticommutation relations and their products, generate operators on  (  ) products of even number commute with parity

6 Fock representation, in terms of occupation number of each mode –isomorphic to m-qubit space –action of fermionic operators is not local –e.g. for m A =m B =1 Fermionic Systems

7 Parity SSR Physical states and observables commute with parity operator 1x1 modes Fock representation physical states

8 Parity SSR Physical states and observables commute with parity operator 1x1 modes Fock representation physical states

9 Parity SSR Physical states and observables commute with parity operator 1x1 modes Fock representation physical states

10 Parity SSR Physical states and observables commute with parity operator 1x1 modes Fock representation physical states

11 Parity SSR Physical states and observables commute with parity operator m A xm B modes Fock representation physical states

12 Parity SSR Physical states and observables commute with parity operator m A xm B modes Fock representation local physical observables

13 How to define entangled states? Entangled states = are not separable Separable states = convex combinations of product states Define product states…

14 Product states P3 P2 P1

15 Product states P2 P1 BUT when restricted to physical states (  commuting with parity) P3

16 Product states Example: 1x1 modes P1 in P1not in P2 P2

17 …two different sets of product states Use them to construct separable states We have… For pure states, they are all the same!!

18 S2=S3 S2’ Separable states S1 For physical states (  commuting with parity)

19 Local measurements cannot distinguish states that produce the same expectation values for all physical local operators –define equivalent states –define separability as equivalence to separable state Separable states

20 [S2] Separable states S2=S3 S2’ S1 For physical states (  commuting with parity)

21 Separable states Example: 1x1 modes S2

22 Separable states Example: 1x1 modes S2 S2’

23 Separable states Example: 1x1 modes S2 S2’ [S2] S1=

24 There are… …four different sets of separable states They correspond to four classes of states –different capabilities for preparation and measurement

25  Preparable by local operations and classical communication, restricted by parity  Convex combination of products in the Fock representation  Convex combination of states s.t. locally measurable observables factorize  All measurable correlations can be produced by one of the above

26 Characterization Criteria in terms of usual separability

27 Characterization Criteria in terms of usual separability [S2]S1 S2’S2 convex combination of products

28 Characterization Criteria in terms of usual separability [S2]S1 S2’S2 convex combination of products

29 Measures of entanglement For S2’ and S2, the entanglement of formation can be defined –For 1x1 modes, EoF in terms of the elements of the density matrix

30 Multiple Copies Not all the definitions of separability are stable under taking several copies of the state S2 and S2’ asymptotically equivalent 1x1 modes: all of them equivalent in the limit of large N  distillable states not in [S2]

31 To conclude… Different definitions of entanglement between fermionic modes are possible They are related to different physical situations, different abilities to prepare, measure the state Different measures of entanglement Different behaviour for several copies More details: Phys. Rev. A 76, (2007)
