• Factorization in finite quantum systems.

      Vourdas, Apostolos (2003)
      Unitary transformations in an angular momentum Hilbert space H(2j + 1), are considered. They are expressed as a finite sum of the displacement operators (which play the role of SU(2j + 1) generators) with the Weyl function as coefficients. The Chinese remainder theorem is used to factorize large qudits in the Hilbert space H(2j + 1) in terms of smaller qudits in Hilbert spaces H(2ji + 1). All unitary transformations on large qudits can be performed through appropriate unitary transformations on the smaller qudits.
