Unformatted text preview: Q5.10 and .11 on page 91. Equation Q5.11 in particular gives us the prescription for calculating the inner product. Thus, we have the following (!!! don’t forget to conjugate  u i ): a) h u  w i = ± 1i ² * · ± 2 i 3 ² = (1) * (2 i ) + (i ) * (3) = (1)(2 i ) + (+ i )(3) = 5i b) h u  w i = ± 12 ² * · ± i5 ² = (1) * ( i ) + (2) * (5) = (1)( i ) + (2)(5) = 10+i c) h u  w i = ± 1 + i2 + i ² * · ± i 2i ² = (1 + i ) * ( i ) + (2 + i ) * (2i ) = (1i )( i ) + (2i )(2i ) = i + 14 + 2 i2 i1 =4+i 1...
