State Vector

(redirected from state vectors)

state vector

[′stāt ‚vek·tər]
(computer science)
(control systems)
A column vector whose components are the state variables of a system.
(quantum mechanics)
A vector in Hilbert space which corresponds to the state of a quantum-mechanical system.

State Vector


a quantity that plays the same role in quantum theory as does the wave function. The square of the absolute value (modulus) of a state vector indicates the probability of the state.
