A manifestly covariant Lagrangian is presented which leads to the reformulation of canonical general relativity using new variables recently discovered by Ashtekar.

We point out that the Poincaré sphere can be used to represent the rays of a three state quantum system. Those interested in geometric phase phenomena may find this representation a useful aid to visualize the global structure of ray space.

We study the behaviour of the geometric phase under isometries of the ray space. This leads to a better understanding of a theorem first proved by Wigner: isometries of the ray space can always be realised as projections of unitary or anti-unitary transformations on the Hilbert space. We suggest that the construction involved in Wigner’s proof is best viewed as an use of the Pancharatnam connection to ‘lift’ a ray space isometry to the Hilbert space.

By repeated trials, one can determine the fairness of a classical coin with a confidence which grows with the number of trials. A quantum coin can be in a superposition of heads and tails and its state is most generally a density matrix. Given a string of qubits representing a series of trials, one can measure them individually and determine the state with a certain confidence.We show that there is an improved strategy which measures the qubits after entangling them, which leads to a greater confidence. This strategy is demonstrated on the simulation facility of IBM quantum computers.
