Abstract.

The generalization of Schmidt decomposition due to Cartelet-Higuchi-Sudbery applied to quantum register (a system of N qubits) is shown to acquire direct geometrical meaning: any pure state is canonically associated with a chain of a simplicial complex. A leading vector method is presented to calculate the values of the coefficients of appropriate chain.
