quantum entanglement

n.
The physical condition of two more particles or physical systems being in quantum states each of which may only be described by reference to the others, especially when the particles or systems are separated in space.

Winkle, with his face and hands blue with the cold, had been forcing gimlet into the soles of his boots, and putting his skates on, with the points behind, and getting the straps into a very complicated and entangled state, with the assistance of Mr.

Arrays of entangled atoms suspended in laser light beams, known as optical lattices, are one approach to creating the logic centers of prototype quantum computers, but an entangled state is difficult to maintain more than briefly.
To examine how CTCs may resolve the old collapse of the quantum wave function issue, I shall look first into part I: four specific scenarios using two qubit input states and finally in part II: a situation first envisioned by Bennett et al [25] involving two cases having one half of a Bell-type entangled state entering a Swap gate together a CTC qubit: In the first of these entangled cases, IIa, labeled a single universe picture, we have three input qubits.
This leads to an entangled state in the two output channels of that beam splitter.
It is well known that nonlocality and entanglement are equivalent for multipartite pure states (in the sense that every entangled state is nonlocal and viceversa) (Gisin 1991, Gisin & Peres 1992, Popescu & Rohrlich 1992).
Two or more particles can be wrangled into what's known as an entangled state, intricately linking the particles' properties regardless of the distance between them.
is an entangled state, where |H)A denotes the photon A is horizontally polarized.
2 is called a maximally entangled state of two qubits, or a Bell pair, whereas a pure state like the one from Eq.
Using eight reconfigurable electrodes embedded in the circuit, photon pairs can be manipulated and entangled, producing any possible entangled state of two photons or any mixed state of one photon.
In an entangled state, individual quantum bits are entangled in a way that transcends space, so they cannot be separated and treated as 0 or 1.
Thus, each photon passing through the double-slit is entangled together with the flap, and the flap-photon entangled state is:
