Entanglement is one of the most striking features of quantum mechanics. The EPR paradox and Bell's inequality are some of the famous examples where it manifests itself. I start by defining entanglement for a bipartite system and talk about various measures of entanglement. Some of the other topics covered are: entanglement witness, relative entropy of entanglement, entanglement of formation and squashed entanglement.
