Consider the subset of multipartite quantum operations that can be implemented when the parties are restricted to using local quantum operations and classical communication (LOCC). Besides technological motivations, questions concerning LOCC have inspired results including teleportation, entanglement distillation, and error correcting codes. We summarize recent results concerning LOCC -- in particular, what extra information processing tasks can be implemented (or not) if unlimited rounds of communication and vanishing error is allowed. We discuss extensions to the nonlocality without entanglement phenomenon. Joint works with Andrew Childs, Eric Chitambar, Honghao Fu, Laura Mancinska, Maris Ozols, Andreas Winter
