In quantum information and quantum computation, we generally use Bell type states which are maximally entangled. I find that the set of entangled states as interesting objects from a mathematical point of view and one can ask many questions regarding their structure and so on. But my question is, what are the practical uses of such states and why are they physically interesting.
The only case I can find out is, when due to some environmental interaction such states are created. However I can only see the use of maximally entangled states in literature. Caveat: In multipartite cases, maximal entanglement can be tricky.
I am not sure, whether I have have phrased the question correctly. Feel free to ask and edit. Advanced thanks for any help, suggestion etc.
