Across a land where naught is real.

It follows that the values of the function t 7→ exp(iπηt/2) for a generic t always lie on a fixed straight line through the origin and it changes the phase (the half line), while passing across a jump point t = t0, if and only if the signature σodd is odd.

We have seen (via Lemma 2) that the probability of the product test passing when applied to some state |ψ(cid:105) ∈ (Cd )⊗n is equal to the average purity, across all choices of subsystem S ⊆ [n], of tr |ψ(cid:105)(cid:104)ψ |S .
