Abstract

We propose and investigate a method to optimize recurrence entanglement purification protocols. The approach is based on a numerical search in the whole set of SU(4) matrices with the aid of a quasi-Newton algorithm. Our method evaluates average concurrences where the probabilistic occurrence of mixed entangled states is also taken into account. We show for certain families of states that optimal protocols are not necessarily achieved by bilaterally applied controlled-not gates. As we discover several optimal solutions, the proposed method offers some flexibility in experimental implementations of entanglement purification protocols and interesting perspectives in quantum information processing.
