5
Quantum Mechanics in 1 Slide Quantum Mechanics: Can apply linear transformations that conserve 2-norm of amplitude vectors Classical Probability: Can apply linear transformations that conserve 1-norm of probability vectors

6
I love the 2-norm! Even in situations where you wouldve thought only the 1-norm would make sense!

7
0 1 Probability Simplex (states of unit 1-norm): Quantum Hilbert Space (states of unit 2-norm):

8
So much for quantum mechanics. Whats the commonsense case for latke superiority? LATKES ACTUALLY TASTE BETTER Hot, fried, covered in sour cream or applesauce Sort of OK Edible??? Are you ready for an argument thats probably never been made in the 60-year history of latke-hamentash debates?

9
Hereextremely unusuallyquantum mechanics and common sense converge! Lack of quantum 2-norm symmetry favored by God Hard, dry, classical 1-norm corners Bland, barely-edible hamentashen

10
Dont trust authority! Taste for yourself!
