Schmidt analysis of pure-state entanglement

  • J. H. Eberly
Charles M. Bowden Memorial Issue


We examine the application of Schmidt mode analysis to pure-state entanglement. Several examples permitting exact analytic calculation of Schmidt eigenvalues and eigenfunctions are included, as well as evaluation of the associated degree of entanglement.
