About this Book

Develops angular momentum theory in a pedagogically consistent way, starting from the geometrical concept of rotational invariance. Uses modern notation and terminology in an algebraic approach to derivations. Each chapter includes examples of applications of angular momentum theory to subjects of current interest and to demonstrate the connections between various scientific fields which are provided through rotations. Includes Mathematica and C language programs.
