what are the 32 quantum states of an electron?
What book, and what was the surrounding context?Originally posted by benzun_1999
a book i read lately said that using the 32 quantum states of an electron you can create a super computer
The n=4 state of a hydrogenlike atom is the only system I can think of that has exactly 32 states. But the electron is by no means limited to 32 (just promote it to n=5!).so i thought that 32 states of quantum realy existed, so i asked this question.
Was string theory mentioned? The reason I ask is that in the 10-dimensional spacetimes of string theory, spacetime spinors (electrons are spinors) fill out spinorial representations of the lorentz group that are 32 dimensional.Originally posted by benzun_1999
