@article{Rosado2011RepresentationOQ, title={Representation of Quantum States as Points in a Probability Simplex Associated to a SIC-POVM}, author={Jos{\'e} Ignacio Rosado}, journal={Foundations of Physics}, year={2011}, volume={41}, pages={1200-1213} }

The quantum state of a d-dimensional system can be represented by a probability distribution over the d2 outcomes of a Symmetric Informationally Complete Positive Operator Valued Measure (SIC-POVM), and then this probability distribution can be represented by a vector of $\mathbb {R}^{d^{2}-1}$ in a (d2−1)-dimensional simplex, we will call this set of vectors $\mathcal{Q}$. Other way of represent a d-dimensional system is by the corresponding Bloch vector also in $\mathbb {R}^{d^{2}-1}$, we…
