## Main Question or Discussion Point

Lets say a state is defined by the minimal amount of independent variables to completely describe a system.

One would come up with the (q,p)-phase-space for a point mass and as another example the Hilbert-space for quantum-states.

Consider the very simple case of a standing wave in string where f

Question: Could one define a 'state-space' of the frequencies f
