State

 

A physical system is said to be in a particular state when its physical properties fall within some particular range; the boundaries of the range defining a state depend on the problem under consideration. In a classical world, each point in phase space could be said to correspond to a distinct state. In the real world, time-invariant systems in quantum mechanics have a set of discrete states, particular superpositions of which constitute complete descriptions of the system. In practice, broader boundaries are usually drawn. A molecule is often said to be in a particular excited electronic state, regardless of its state of mechanical vibration. In nanomechanical systems, the PES often corresponds to a set of distinct potential wells, and all points in configuration space within a particular well can be regarded as one state. Definitions of state in the thermodynamics of bulk matter are analogous, but extremely coarse by these standards.
