Abstract

The quantum formalism permits one to discriminate sometimes between any set of linearly independent pure states with certainty. We obtain the maximum probability with which a set of equally likely, symmetric, linearly independent states can be discriminated. The form of this bound is examined for symmetric coherent states of a harmonic oscillator or field mode.
