Entanglement is a unique feature of quantum mechanics that can be created between different objects such as individual photons, atoms, nuclear spins and even between biological living cells. In the simplest way, entanglement or non-separability can be described as a property of a system of objects that cannot be identified without reference to each of the objects regardless of their spatial separations. In terms of a quantum-mechanical description, entangled states are linear superpositions of the internal states of the system that cannot be separated into product states of the individual objects. Entanglement is recognized as entirely quantum-mechanical effect which is not only at the heart of the distinction between quantum and classical mechanics but also has played a crucial role in many discussions on fundamental issues of quantum mechanics. Apart from the importance in understanding the fundamentals of quantum physics, entanglement provides a fascinating avenue of research in different areas of physics, mathematics and biology. It is now well established that entanglement is an essential ingredient for the implementation of quantum communication and quantum computation, as well as for new emerging branches of science and technology, such as nanotechnology or nanoscience based on the laws of quantum mechanics.
This book concentrates on the background theory of atomic correlations and entanglement that are discussed from first principles, and as clearly as possible, to introduce a reader to the main ideas of entanglement, and to present the mathematical methods and techniques used by researchers working in the fields of atomic correlations and entanglement. The book provides a systematic analysis of the recent achievements in the research on quantum entanglement, with special emphasis on entanglement creation between single atoms and atomic ensembles, processing of an encoded entanglement, entanglement protection from decoherence and its controlled evolution.
