When considering the 2 eigenvectors of the S(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{z}operator the | + > eigenvector points in the positive z direction and the | - > points in the negative z direction ; so is it correct to write | + > = - | - > ?

And similarly for the eigenvectors of the S_{x}and S_{y}operators ?

Thanks
