Kochen-Specker vectors

Pavicic, Mladen; Merlet, Jean-Pierre; McKay, Brendan; Megill, Norman D


We give a constructive and exhaustive definition of Kochen-Specker (KS) vectors in a Hubert space of any dimension as well as of all the remaining vectors of the space. KS vectors are elements of any set of orthonormal states, i.e., vectors in an n-dimensional Hilbert space, Hn,n ≥ 3, to which it is impossible to assign Is and 0s in such a way that no two mutually orthogonal vectors from the set are both assigned 1 and that not all mutually orthogonal vectors are assigned 0. Our constructive...[Show more]
