Phenomenology of Entanglement  

Effects and Uses of Entanglement in General > s.a. pilot-wave interpretation [entanglement exchange]; statistical mechanics [equilibrium].
* Applications: Entanglement is considered as a key quantity for the understanding of correlations, transport properties, and phase transitions in composite quantum systems; Entanglement of large objects enables "bulk" properties, like collective spin, to be "teleported," and is needed for quantum computers.

* Generation of entanglement: Any interaction between two systems that begin in definite states generically leaves the composite system in a superposition of product states.
Loss of entanglement: Entanglement can be lost by decoherence in open quantum systems.
