We have to ask ourselves what attitude to take towards inequivalent quantizations of a given classical theory - how many of them are physically significant?

In this case, |0([xi], t)> and |0> are unitarily inequivalent and the proper physical vacua are |0([xi], t)> [54, 55].
As we can see in these solutions, the Hamiltonian itself comprises inequivalent lattice sites that lead to the blowup and the energy gap.
There is good reason to believe that, ultimately, this theory will have corrections that are not found in QED and therefore be inequivalent at some level of accuracy.

For the ZnO nanowire with [V.sub.Zn], [V.sub.O], [O.sub.Zn], or [Zn.sub.O] defect, there are three inequivalent defect positions, which are denoted by [V.sub.Zn1]-[V.sub.Zn3], [V.sub.O1]-[V.sub.O3], [O.sub.Zn1]-[O.sub.Zn3], and [Zn.sub.O1]-[Zn.sub.O3] as shown in Figures 2(a), 2(b), 2(d), and 2(e), respectively, whereas, there are two inequivalent [Zn.sub.i] and [O.sub.i] defect positions, which are denoted by [Zn.sub.i1]-[Zn.sub.i2] and [O.sub.i1]-[O.sub.i2] as shown in Figures 2(c) and 2(f), respectively
d [equivalent to] [b.sup.2] (mod 4), d nota square in [O.sub.K], d > 0, d' < 0}.For each d [member of] [D.sub.+-], let [h.sub.K] (d) denote the number of inequivalent primitive binary quadratic forms over [O.sub.k] of discriminant d, and let ([x.sub.d],[y.sub.d]) [member of] [O.sub.k] x [O.sub.k] be the fundamental solution of the Pellian equation [x.sup.2] - [dy.sup.2] = 4.
In this sense geometric product is analogous to bindings employed in HRR or BSC, but we can still proceed in several inequivalent ways.
In this research (41) it was shown that the previous result may be explained by assuming a different degree of ordering of th e [Bi.sup.3+] and [Bi.sup.5+] cations located at the two inequivalent positions, in the sense that one position is occupied by somewhat more [Bi.sup.3+] than [Bi.sup.5+] and the other position is occupied in the opposite way.
