Turn in at most one page, and not less than half a page, indicating what you have read, examples or exercises (apart from those assigned below) that you worked out, diFculties you encountered, questions that came to mind, etc. You may include complaints about the course. You will ±nd a sample at the end of the problem set. 2. Let | χ ± = | 0 ±- i | 1 ± , | ω ± = (1 + i ) 2 | 0 ± + | 1 ± a) ²ind the matrix of the operator | χ ±² ω | in the standard basis. b) Check that Tr( | χ ±² ω | )= ² ω | χ ± .
