Hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm reading through tensor product spaces and one question really bogs me. Why is it that the total Hilbert space of a system composed of two independent subsystems is the tensor product of the Hilbert spaces of the subsystems?

It is always posed, but I've never seen a proof or a single argument for this. Sure, it works, but what is the motivation?

Thanks for any help
