Quantum Quandries has founded a new church: The Church of the Smaller Hilbert Space. Humor that appeals directly to quantum physicists: priceless. I am greatly looking forward to the theological debate between members of the Church of the Larger Hilbert Space and Church of the Smaller Hilbert Space. And can we look forward to the Church of the Infinite Hilbert Space, or the Church of the Empty Hilbert Space (that last one feels a little Zen, doesn’t it?) And why aren’t their any Churches for Banach Spaces? Members of all Hilbert Space Churches would be welcome, of course.

This Pontiff mention has me worried about the danger of this becoming my most highly cited paper.
I did think of calling it “The Church of the Smaller Operator Algebra”, since Hilbert Spaces are hardly mentioned in the ten commandments and we don’t want to exclude those people who are still stuck in classical commutative algebra from joining.

Andrew White gave a talk last week in Baton Rouge with the subtitle Sinning in the Church of the Larger Hilbert Space.
