This book introduces the quantum theory of angular momentum to students who are unfamiliar with it and develops it to a stage useful for research.The first part contains the basic theory of rotations and angular momentum. As the book aims to emphasize applications, mathematical details are avoided and difficult theorems stated without proof. The second part contains examples of applications to a wide range of physical phenomena and presents a collection of results helpful in solving problems.Review`the text is clearly written and well comprehensible.'Institute of Physics Publishing Journal, October 1994`It is good to see this classic reprinted as a third edition. My own copy of the second edition has been used so regularly as a reference for formulae over more than twenty-five years that it has lost its covers and some pages have become detached ... a very thorough book which has stood thetest of time and will now be available to a further generation of postgraduate students and researchers.'Prof. J P Elliot (University of Sussex), Contemporary Physics, 1995, Vol 36, No 1From the Back CoverThis book introduces the quantum theory of angular momentum to students who are unfamiliar with it and develops it to a stage useful for research.
