MiS Preprint Repository

We have decided to discontinue the publication of preprints on our preprint server as of 1 March 2024. The publication culture within mathematics has changed so much due to the rise of repositories such as ArXiV ( that we are encouraging all institute members to make their preprints available there. An institute's repository in its previous form is, therefore, unnecessary. The preprints published to date will remain available here, but we will not add any new preprints here.

Bell Inequality, Separability and Entanglement Distillation

Ming Li, Shao-Ming Fei and Xianqing Li-Jost


In this review, we introduce well-known Bell inequalities, the relations between the Bell inequality and quantum separability, and the entanglement distillation of quantum states. It is shown that any pure entangled quantum state violates one of Bell-like inequalities. Moreover, quantum states that violate any one of these Bell-like inequalities are shown to be distillable. New Bell inequalities that detect more entangled mixed states are also introduced.
