[For 3 L states, cross out boxes starting from both (M L =L,M S =1) and (M L =L,M S =0).] complete (2L + 1)(2S + 1) dimension for each L-S term [# of boxes] *n l 2 pattern *( n l ) 2 n l * method of ladders plus orthogonality TODAY: L 2 , S 2 method to obtain |LM L SM S , especially for M L ,M S boxes in which the where method of ladders plus orthogonality is most inconvenient : M L = 0, M S = 0 other, strong spin-orbit basis sets Modern calculations use projection operators: designed to project away all unwanted parts of ψ yet preserve normalization. * L 2 L + L only for M L = 0 block. Every L–S term is represented in this most evil block. * set up and diagonalize S 2 — easy — by forming ± linear combinations (singlet and triplet) αβ βα αβ + βα * transform L 2 to singlet, triplet basis (block diagonalization), then diagonalize L 2 by knowing (from crossing out boxes method) eigenvalues: L(L + 1)

33 - 2 5.73 Lecture #33 updated September 19, Look at the M L = 0, M S = 0 block of f 2 and construct all L – S basis states. All extant L-S terms of f 2 are present once in the M L = M S = 0 block. Never try to get to this block by ladders and orthogonality! Cute trick that works especially well in M L = 0 and M S = 0 blocks because many otherwise awful terms vanish. diagonal but vanishes in M L = 0 nondiagonal ψα β ψβ α β α β α β 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 33 22 11 00 =− = Do d 2 in lecture L L LL L L L L L L 2 2 1 2 1 2 2 =+ + () + [] = + + +− −+ + − zz z , , h hh same as 2 So for M L = 0 block only, can replace L 2 by L + L (or L L + ) and, for M S = 0 only, replace S 2 by S + S .
