Abstract

We begin this chapter with the consideration of the orbital angular momentum. This gives rise to a general definition of angular momenta. We derive the eigenvalue spectrum of the orbital angular momentum with an algebraic method. After a brief presentation of the eigenfunctions of the orbital angular momentum in the position representation, we outline some concepts for the addition of angular momenta.
