Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

State vectors ("kets") live in Hilbert space. Do wavefunctions also live in Hilbert space? I've read that they both do, but how can functions and vectors reside in the same space? Or do wave functions simply map from coordinate space to Hilbert space?

Thanks
