Hi!

Is there a straightforward way to do simple operations in
the braket-formalism with Mathematica?
I stumbled across the "New notation"-Demo [1], but in Linux, Mathematica
does not accept the angular brackets (in In[28]:=... of [1]). It marks
them as "missing closure" (i.e. in a purple colour) and In[33]:= (of [1])
therefore returns

Syntax::sntxb : Expression cannot beginn with "a,:psi:|:phi:" 

(:psi:,:phi: represented as greek letters).
In this spirit
With many thanks in advance
Yours Gernot
