Using the properties of the scalar product, one can always write: <chp>=<ch>* (3-43} I where | no) is an arbitrary ket of 6”. Using expressions (BA?) for |Ilfl> and (M, we obtain: l<tfi|A'|w>=<w|Allfi>*l (13-49} a relation which is valid for all |cp> and H; ).

However, the state has to be normalized, so In]1 + [,3]2 = l, and an overall phase makes no difference, so either a or ,8 can be chosen to be real. This leads to the “canonical“ parametrization |1,i‘}= cor-i E ID} + em all] E I1} {1] in terms or" only two real numbers 6' and o, with natural ranges [I 5 El 5 a: and [I S p S 2111'. These are the same as the polar angles in 3-dimensional spherical coordinates, and this leads to the representation of the state {1] as a point on a unit sphere called the Bloc}: sphere. In the notation of (1}, the state Ill} is represented by the North pole, and the state II} by the South pole, whereas the states on the equator correspond to superpositions of |o} and ll} with equal weights (5' = 792]. and different phases, parametrized by the azimuthal angle {a (the “longitude").

All the pictures of Bloch spheres generated by the applets on these pages can be freely rotated with the mouse or using the sliders provided. We have tried to indicate depth by graying out the parts of the sphere or the axes that are farthest from the viewer. http:ffeomp.uarlt.eduf~j geabanafbloe happsl'bloehhtml lflfif 21308 Quantum Information Processing analyze if they are probabilistic.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
