Generalized Choi states and 2-distillability of quantum states
- 74 Downloads
We investigate the distillability of bipartite quantum states in terms of positive and completely positive maps. We construct the so-called generalized Choi states and show that it is distillable when it has negative partial transpose. We convert the distillability problem of 2-copy \(n\times n\) Werner states into the determination of the positivity of an Hermitian matrix. We obtain several sufficient conditions by which the positivity holds. Further, we investigate the case \(n=3\) by the classification of \(2\times 3\times 3\) pure states.
