Tensor Operators and Expectation Values
A large amount of work in physics deals with the calculation of matrix elements and the solution of eigenvalue problems, either exactly or by perturbation methods. The basic ideas of using group theory in simplifying such problems (Wigner-Eckart theorem) will be given in this chapter.
