15) there exists a probability space (X, Σ, μ) and a sequence of independent random variables / i , /2 ? · · · on (X,Σ,μ) such that μ^ = μ». Thus / i , / 2 , . ) random variables such that Μ/ΓΗθ)) = \ Μί/Γ'ίΐ)) = \ i = 1,2, We may interpret /» as giving the number of heads on the i-th flip. The number of heads in the first n flips divided by n is represented by the random variable 5 η = η - 1 ( / ΐ + · · · + /η). As previously stated, we would expect that Sn —► 1/2 in some sense. s. we have a strong law of large numbers.
We can then define a state as a map s:L(H) —► [0,1] satisfy ing: (51) s(I) = 1 (52) β(ΣΡ<) = Σ8(Ρί) if PiPj = 0, ιφ j . We say that a state s is atomic or pure if there is a one-dimensional projection P such that s(P) = 1. Otherwise, we call s a mixed state. The following is an example of a state on L(H). Let T be a positive trace-class operator (called a density operator) on H with tr(T) = 1. Then it is easy to show that the map s: L(H) —► [0,1] given by s(P) = tr(TP) is a state on L(H). It turns out that if dim H > 3, then every state has this form.
How should we describe disjointness for events represented by projections? Consider our previous example where a A is a counter for the region A. Physically, we would have α,Α and a# disjoint if and only if A Π B = 0. Since intersection has no significance for projections, we must rephrase this condition in terms that can be carried over to projections. This can be done by considering the indicator functions ΦΑ for regions A in R3. Then an equivalent definition is that CLA and ÜB are disjoint if and only if ΦΑΦΒ = 0.
