In Dirac's "The Principles of Quantum Mechanics," ket vectors are multipled by complex numbers (c1 |A> + c2 |A> = c1 + c2 |A>) and I was curious what affect this has a) on the ket vector and b) on the entire system? Also is (c1 |A> + c2 |A> = c1 + c2 |A>) equal to (|A> + |A> = |A>)? Thank you for your help!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
