Abstract

Bell inequalities bound the strength of classical correlations arising between outcomes of measurements performed on subsystems of a shared physical system. The ability of quantum theory to violate Bell inequalities has been intensively studied for several decades. Recently, there has been an increased interest in studying physical correlations beyond the scenario of Bell inequalities, to more general network structures involving many sources of physical states and observers that may be measuring on subsystems of independent states. Much less is known about the nature of physical correlations in networks as compared to standard Bell inequalities. In this talk we will discuss the motivation and interest for studying such network correlations, review the recent progress in understanding such networks, and discuss the many open questions and new possible directions for research on this topic.
