Quantum circuits for maximally entangled states


We design a series of quantum circuits that generate absolute maximally entangled (AME) states to benchmark a quantum computer. A relation between graph states and AME states can be exploited to optimize the structure of the circuits and minimize their depth. Furthermore, we find that most of the provided circuits obey majorization relations for every partition of the system and every step of the algorithm. The main goal of the work consists in testing efficiency of quantum computers when requiring the maximal amount of genuine multipartite entanglement allowed by quantum mechanics, which can be used to efficiently implement multipartite quantum protocols.
