31]Cl states are the ground states of these nuclei.
are ground states of the uuu and the ddd quark systems, respectively.
In the next section we show, however, that if the [absolute value of [PSI]]> is a ground state (of any system), then E becomes a functional of n.
Where [PSI] is the ground state and C is bijective (one-to-one correspondence), because to every V we can compute the corresponding [PSI] from SE and two different V and V' (differing by more than a constant) give two different [PSI], because if V and V' gave the same [PSI], then by substracting
2] ground states we generate a set of potentials which produce scattering phase shifts consistent with our observed spectra.
The mechanism of SBS was first demonstrated theoretically in quantum field theory: (1) In the system of infinitely many degrees of freedom described by the Hamiltonian manifesting the rotational symmetry, only one state is chosen spontaneously among the infinitely degenerate ground states as a real ground state of the system and the rotational symmetry of the system is broken without recourse to any external environment.
By applying the proper sequence of pulses, one can presumably place an array of these particles into any desired pattern of states, including superpositions of the excited and ground states.
Since the dipolar interaction of the systems can be coherently controlled and manipulated by laser light, we will investigate novel ground states of many Rydberg systems and realize many-body fast quantum gates.

The first is to extend our understanding of known strongly coupled quantum critical ground states using gravitational solutions and also to search for new ones.
