A basis-free approach to time-reversal for symmetry groups
- 31 Downloads
We develop a basis-free approach to time-reversal for the quantal angular momentum group,SU2, and apply these methods to the physical symmetrySU2isospin,SU3flavor,SU3nuclear and the nuclear collective symmetry groupSL(3,R) of Gell-Mann and Tomonaga.
