What are rules of analytical –not numerical (matrix) entry of bra-ket convertion ?

    What are the rules of analyticalnot numerical (matrix) entry of bra-ket convertion – operations on bra-ket, in particular – tensor product ?

    For example – how in analytical form to do this:

    U[itex]|\Psi\rangle[/itex]

    where:

    U=I[itex]\otimes[/itex]I

    I=[itex]|0\rangle\langle0|+|1\rangle\langle1|[/itex]

    [itex]\Psi=\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\left( {|0\rangle\otimes|0\rangle+|1\rangle\otimes|1 \rangle} \right)[/itex]

    Also – is it possible to do it in the analytical (not numerical) form in the package “Wolfram Mathematica” ? [itex] [/itex]

    The first operator operates on the first ket, and the second operator operates on the second ket independently.
