I just watched the latest episode of NUMB3RS which brought up a very interesting concept called Coherent States. From what I got from the show this concept has something to do with data which contains no outliers and no anomalies, therefore pointing to a perfect solution. In the show it was stated that such a perfect set up is so improbable as to go against Coherent States.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am just looking to see if the shows interpretation was correct and a simple explanation of what Coherent States are if they were not.
