ABSTRACT We derive a necessary and sufficient condition for the separability of tripartite three mode Gaussian states, that is easy to check for any such state. We give a classification of the separability properties of those systems and show how to determine for any state to which class it belongs. We show that there exist genuinely tripartite bound entangled states and point out how to construct and prepare such states. Comment: 11 pages, 2 figures (.eps); results extended to 1x1xn modes; references updated; version to appear in Phys. Rev. A

    ABSTRACT: We investigate a game where a sender (Alice) teleports coherent states to two receivers (Bob and Charlie) through a tripartite Gaussian state. The aim of the receivers is to optimize their teleportation fidelities by means of local operations and classical communications. We show that a non-cooperative strategy corresponding to the standard telecloning protocol can be outperformed by a cooperative strategy which gives rise to a novel (cooperative) telecloning protocol.

    ABSTRACT: We derive necessary and sufficient conditions for arbitrary multimode (pure or mixed) Gaussian states to be equivalent under Gaussian local unitary operations. To do so, we introduce a standard form for Gaussian states, which has the properties that (i) every state can be transformed into its standard form via Gaussian local unitaries and (ii) it is unique and (iii) it can be easily computed. Thus, two states are equivalent under Gaussian local unitaries if and only if their standard forms coincide. We explicitly derive the standard form for two- and three-mode Gaussian pure states. We then investigate transformations between these classes by means of Gaussian local operations assisted by classical communication. For three-mode pure states, we identify a global property that cannot be created but only destroyed by local operations. This implies that the highly entangled family of symmetric three-mode Gaussian states is not sufficient to generate all three-mode Gaussian states by local Gaussian operations.

    ABSTRACT: Gaussian states — or, more generally, Gaussian operators — play an important role in Quantum Optics and Quantum Information Science, both in discussions about conceptual issues and in practical applications. We describe, in a tutorial manner, a systematic operator method for first characterizing such states and then investigating their properties. The central numerical quantities are the covariance matrix that specifies the characteristic function of the state, and the closely related matrices associated with Wigner's and Glauber's phase space functions. For pedagogical reasons, we restrict the discussion to one-dimensional and two-dimensional Gaussian states, for which we provide illustrating and instructive examples.
