Angular Momentum in Quantum Mechanics by A. R. Edmonds

By A. R. Edmonds

This publication bargains a concise creation to the angular momentum, essentially the most primary amounts in all of quantum mechanics. starting with the quantization of angular momentum, spin angular momentum, and the orbital angular momentum, the writer is going directly to talk about the Clebsch-Gordan coefficients for a two-component method. After constructing the required arithmetic, particularly round tensors and tensor operators, the writer then investigates the 3-j, 6-j, and 9-j symbols. all through, the writer offers useful purposes to atomic, molecular, and nuclear physics. those contain partial-wave expansions, the emission and absorption of debris, the proton and electron quadrupole second, matrix aspect calculation in perform, and the homes of the symmetrical best molecule.
