  SSL 3.0 Specification
A variable length vector with an actual length field of zero is referred to as an empty vector.
It is the responsibility of the SSL Handshake protocol to coordinate the states of the client and server, thereby allowing the protocol state machines of each to operate consistently, despite the fact that the state is not exactly parallel.
Logically the state is represented twice, once as the current operating state, and (during the handshake protocol) again as the pending state.

  Orbital state vectors - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
State vectors are excellent for pre-launch orbital predictions when combined with time (epoch) expressed as an offset to the launch time.
Orbital state vectors are equivalent to orbital elements (Keplerian elements) and each can be computed with each other (and used to derive other parameters of the orbit).
A time-independent state vector can be combined with the launch time using xxx method in order to arrive at a valid set of orbital elements whereas computed in advance orbital elements are valid only when launch occurs without the slip.

 Mathematical formulation of quantum mechanics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A quantum description consists of a Hilbert space of states, observables are self-adjoint operators on the space of states, time evolution is given by a one-parameter group of unitary transformations on the Hilbert space of states, and physical symmetries are realized by unitary transformations.
The state is given by a differentiable map (with respect to the Hilbert space norm topology) from time, which is an infinite one dimensional manifold parameterized by t, to the Hilbert space of states.
The Stone-von Neumann theorem states all irreducible representations of the finite-dimensional Heisenberg commutation relations are unitarily equivalent.

 What is a State Vector?   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A state vector is a set of data telling exactly where the shuttle is in its orbit in space.

 Quantum mechanics the way I see it
Nevertheless, possibly due to a tendency to interpret the state vector in a realist way (to be observed also in the Copenhagen interpretation) the paradox has gained considerable importance in the form of the so-called "measurement problem", the cat being comparable to a (macroscopic) measuring instrument.
The quantum mechanical state vector is thought to refer to an ensemble of identically prepared microscopic objects (for instance, a beam of electrons, produced by a cyclotron without knob settings being varied, and assuming the electrons to be non-interacting).
An empiricist interpretation of the quantum mechanical state vector is necessarily an ensemble one, because one and the same quantum mechanical preparation procedure may yield different individual objects, to be regarded as different elements of an ensemble.

 Vector » Principles of Quantum Scattering Theory (Dz Belkic) » Convergence of series of operators, state ...   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Generally speaking, in scattering theory one employs certain expansions of operators, state vectors (or vectors, for short) and matrix elements.
However, the series of matrix elements are complex numbers obtained by the action of operators on certain vectors followed by their projection onto some other vectors.
Therefore, it is of crucial importance to examine the operator and vector series, with the purpose of gaining some insight into convergence of the pertinent physical matrix elements.

Radar polarisation is the orientation of the electric (E) vector in an electromagnetic wave, frequently horizontal or vertical, in conventional imaging radar systems.

The connection with the standard theory is established by postulating the existence of 'hyper-observables' and nonstandard states.
Consistency extends to time evolution, in the sense that if an initial nonstandard state is 'near-standard', then the state after a finite time shall be infinitely near the standard state obtained through the Schroedinger equation.
