Unformatted text preview: in the form 1 = ( 1 2 ) 2 = ( 2 1 ) . or normalized 1 and 2 the Cauchy-Schwartz inequality says that a 1 | 2 A will be less than one. If the states do not overlap much, it will be much less than one and will be small. (If 1 and 2 do not meet the stated requirements, you can always redene them by factors ae i c and be i c , with a , b , and c real, to get states that do.) Answer: The inner product of 1 and 2 must be zero for them to be orthogonal: 2 a 1 2 | 2 1 A = 0...
