It does not make sense to act with a single state ket [tex]\langle a|[/tex] on a tensor product state, unless a itself represents a tensor product state.
In Other words to calculate the action you need both ket and bra to be in the same basis. So either you have to write a in the 2 particle Hilbertspace or you have to convert the compound system.
I see. I'll try doing that then. Thanks.
