Abstract

The entanglement of formation (EoF) between one-dimensional spatial regions is calculated for one and two identical, non-interacting, non-relativistic bosons. Thermal states are approximated by mixtures of up to 13 energy eigenstates. The EoF is found to diminish as inverse temperature to a power of ∼0.62 in one spatial dimension.
