Unformatted text preview: z basis states:  + x = a  + + b  where a and b are in general complex. Then we see that +  + x = a and we require  a  2 = 1 2 to agree with the experiment. so we nd a = 1 2 e i . We will choose (by convention) = 0 so a = 1 2 . Similarly for b . So we nd that  + x = 1 2 (  + +  ) 1...
