TOPIC: Quantifying genuine multipartite correlations and their pattern complexity

We propose an information-theoretic framework to quantify many-body correlations in classical and quantum systems, answering questions such as: what is the amount of seven-partite correlations in a given state of ten particles? We identify measures of genuine multipartite correlations, i.e. statistical dependencies which cannot be ascribed to bipartite correlations, satisfying a set of desirable properties. Inspired by ideas developed in complexity science, we then introduce the concept of weaving to classify states with an equal amount of total correlations, but displaying di fferent patterns of multipartite correlations. The weaving of a state is defined as the weighted sum of correlations of any order. Weaving measures are good descriptors of the complexity of correlation structures in multipartite systems.
