Abstract

We present examples of the analysis of quantum entanglement entanglement as an introduction to the fundamental basis for quantum computing and information technology. Pure non-separable two-particle states are analysed using the Schmidt decomposition and we introduce the number of effective eigenmodes as a measure of entanglement. We give an elementary illustration, as well as an overview of more complex calculations we have carried out in situations involving bipartite states in continuous Hilbert space.
