Abstract: AbstractWe discuss a generalization of the standard Bloch sphere representation for a single qubit to two qubits, in the framework of Hopf fibrations of highdimensional spheres by lower dimensional spheres. The single-qubit Hilbert space is the three-dimensional sphere S 3 . The S 2 base space of a suitably oriented S 3 Hopf fibration is nothing but the Bloch sphere, while the circular fibres represent the overall qubit phase degree of freedom. For the two-qubits case, the Hilbert space is a seven-dimensional…
