What is a populated state?

  1. Jul 4, 2014 #1
    Hi.

    I was reading time-dependent perturbation on Sakurai and it mentioned that a certain state was "populated". What does that mean? I don't think it mentions it in any previous chapter.

    Thank you for your time.

    There is a particle in the state.
