Genuine multipartite entanglement (GME) is considered a powerful form of entanglement since it corresponds to those states that are not biseparable, i.e. a mixture of partially separable states across different bipartitions of the parties. In this talk I will study this phenomenon in the multiple-copy regime, where many perfect copies of a given state can be produced and controlled. In this scenario the above definition leads to subtle intricacies as biseparable states can be GME-activatable, i.e. several copies of a biseparable state can display GME. I will show, however, that the set of GME-activatable states admits a simple characterization: a state is GME-activatable if and only if it is not partially separable across one bipartition of the parties. This leads to the second question of whether there is a general upper bound in the number of copies that needs to be considered in order to observe the activation of GME, which will be answered in the negative. In particular, by providing an explicit construction, it can be proven that for any number of parties and any number \(k\in\mathbb{N}\) there exist GME-activatable multipartite states of fixed (i.e. independent of \(k\)) local dimensions such that \(\) copies of them remain biseparable. This is joint work with Carlos Palazuelos.
