Distributed quantum information processing is a promising platform for scaling up quantum information processing, where small- and intermediate-scale quantum devices are connected by a network of quantum channels for communicating quantum information, so as to cooperate in achieving larger-scale information processing. In such distributed settings, entangled states shared among the multiple devices serve as a resource for achieving nonlocal information processing tasks by local operations and

This thesis analyzes properties of quantum entanglement in these small- and intermediate-scale settings and multipartite settings. The first part of this thesis investigates a communication task, quantum state merging, on the small and intermediate scales. The second part of this thesis analyzes multipartite entanglement in distributed quantum information processing. These analyses clarify fundamental limitations and potential applications of distributed quantum information processing to characterize properties of quantum entanglement in the small- and intermediate-scale settings and multipartite settings, providing a paradigm for investigating multipartite entanglement in distributed quantum information processing over networks beyond the state convertibility under LOCC.
