(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

for discrete basis vectors {{e_n}}, a state vector |psi> is represented by a column vector, with elements being psi_n = <e_n|psi>. When basis vectors correspond to those with continuous eigenvalues, vectors are represented by functions. Give such an example of a state vector |psi> being represented in a space spanned by position eigenvectors {|x>}.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

C_n = <x_n | psi>

I'm really taking a shot in the dark with this one. I'm using Griffith's, so I assume my solutions lies somewhere in chapter 3.
