Quadratic Bell inequalities for testing the entanglement of multiparticle states were presented. Quantum mechanical inequalities for systems of n spin-1/2 particles (n>2) were analyzed. The inequalities distinguished between fully entangled states and states in which at most n-1 particles were entangled. Results showed that the derived inequalities did not hold for non-quantum mechanical hidden variable (HV) theories.
