Angular Momentum–Revisited

11.1  INTRODUCTION

In Chapter 9, we studied orbital angular momentum. There, we defined orbital angular momentum operators equation and components equation We found out their commutation relations and found simultaneous eigenfunctions and eigenvalues of equation Let us rewrite some of these relations.

equation

Here we have written the eigenstates ...
