If ψ

_{1}and ψ

_{2}are admissible states,

then the superposed state [itex]\alpha[/itex]ψ

_{1}+ ψ

_{2}[itex]\beta[/itex] ( [itex]\alpha[/itex],[itex]\beta[/itex] [itex]\in[/itex] C ) is also an admissible state.

[itex]\rightarrow[/itex] complex vector space.

I understand that a linear superposition of allowed state is also an allowed state. It follows from the linearity of the Schrodinger's equation.

What I fail to understand is how this leads to the concept of a complex vector space in QM.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
