Abstract: Recently, Mintert et al (MKB) (2005 Phys. Rev. Lett. 95 260502) proposed generalizations of the Wootters concurrence for multipartite quantum systems, which can be evaluated efficiently for arbitrary mixed states. In this paper, we study in detail the origin of the robustness of multipartite thermal entanglement in N-qubit XY models with N = 2, 4 and 6 using the MKB concurrences. For N = 2, we establish the principle for the occurrence of robust bipartite thermal entanglement (Kamta and Starace 2002 Phys. Rev. Lett. 88 107901). We show explicitly that similar robust multipartite thermal entanglement can be found in the N = 4 case, and how this can be explained employing the same principle. It is then deduced that the six-qubit XY model also possesses robust multipartite thermal entanglement like the N = 2 case. More generally, our work spells out the characteristic properties for a given realistic model to have robust multipartite thermal entanglement like that in the two-qubit XY model. © 2008 IOP Publishing Ltd.
