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.

Trade-off Relations of Bell Violations among Pairwise Qubit Systems

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


We investigate the non-locality distributions among multi-qubit systems based on the maximal violations of the CHSH inequality of the reduced pairwise qubit systems. We present a trade-off relation satisfied by these maximal violations, which gives rise to restrictions on the distribution of non-locality among the sub-qubit systems. For a three-qubit system, it is impossible that all pair of qubits violate the CHSH inequality, and once a pair of qubits violates the CHSH inequality maximally, the other two pairs of qubits must both obey the CHSH inequality. Detailed examples are given to display the trade-off relations, and the trade-off relations are generalized to arbitrary multi-qubit systems.
