In this video we learn how to change between bases in quantum mechanics.
When we solve the equations of quantum mechanics we need to write kets, bras, and operators in a particular basis. Although the physics is independent of the basis, choosing a good one can greatly simplify the maths. For this purpose, it is essential to be able to change between bases. In this video we learn how to change kets, bras, and operators between bases.
