State Vector

State vector may refer to:

• A Quantum state vector
• A state vector (geographical) specifies the position and velocity of an object in any location on Earth's surface
• Orbital state vectors are vectors of position and velocity that together with their time, uniquely determine the state of an orbiting body in astrodynamics or celestial dynamics
