Local distinguishability of multipartite orthogonal quantum states

Abstract:
We consider one copy of a quantum system prepared in one of two orthogonal pure states, entangled or otherwise, and distributed between any number of parties. We demonstrate that it is possible to identify which of these two states the system is in by means of local operations and classical communication alone. The protocol we outline is both completely reliable and completely general; it will correctly distinguish any two orthogonal states 100% of the time.
