# Angular Momentum in Quantum Mechanics

@inproceedings{Johnson2015AngularMI, title={Angular Momentum in Quantum Mechanics}, author={R. C. Johnson}, year={2015} }

We begin with a review of the basic concepts involved in the quantum mechanical description of physical systems and the notation we will use in the lectures. The notes in this Section are not intended to provide an introductory course on Quantum Mechanics. They assume the reader has had at least a first course at undergraduate physics level that covers some historical background and reviews the experimental evidence that leads to the necessity for the formalism developed here as the most useful…
