[tex]|\phi> = \frac{e^{i \delta_{1}}}{2}|L_{z} = 1> + \frac{e^{i \delta_{2}}}{2^{\frac{1}{2}}}|L_{z} = 0> + \frac{e^{i \delta_{3}}}{2}|L_{z} = -1>.[/tex]

i know to calculate [tex]P(L_{z} = 1)[/tex] it is done by [tex] |< L_{z} = 1 |\phi> |^2 [/tex] and assuming I'm in an orthonormal eigenbasis i get that [tex] < L_{z} = 1 |\phi> = \frac{e^{i \delta_{1}}}{2} [/tex] and when its squared i get [tex] \frac{e^{2i \delta_{1}}}{2} [/tex] which should equal to [tex] \frac{1}{2} [/tex] and this is the part i am having trouble with. how do i show that [tex] e^{2i \delta_{1}} = 1 [/tex] ?
