For a spin quantum system pure quantum states are uniquely
described by projection operators , where is a unit
length direction vector, starting at the origin, and ending on one
of the points of the unit sphere. All pure states are of this
form. Indeed, every orthogonal projection, except of the two
trivial ones: and are of the form for some
