21 - 1 5.73 Lecture #21 revised October 21, 2002 @ 10:15 AM 1. define radial momentum 2. define orbital angular momentum 3. separate p 2 into radial and angular terms: 4. find Complete Set of Commuting Observables (CSCO) useful for block- diagonalizing H 5. 3D-Central Force Problems I All 2-Body, 3-D problems can be reduced to * a 2-D angular part that is exactly and universally soluble * a 1-D radial part that is system-specific and soluble by 1-D techniques in which you are now expert Next 3 lectures: Correspondence Principle Commutation Rules → all matrix elements p r = r -1 q p- i h () r L = r q × r p also L × L = i h L and L i , L j [] = i h k ε ijk L k p 2 = p r 2 + r −2 L 2 H , L 2 = H,L i = L 2 , L i =0 H , L 2 , L i CSCO L,M L universal basis set separate radial part of H : H l (r) = p r 2 + V( r ) + h 2 ll +1 r 2 V l ( r ) effective radial potential 6. ALL Matrix Elements of Angular Momentum Components Derived from Commutation Rules. 7. Spherical Tensor Classification of all operators. 8. Wigner-Eckart Theorem all angular matrix elements of all operators. I hate differential operators. Replace them using exclusively simple Commutation Rule based Operator Algebra. general definition of angular momentum and of “vector operators” 1-D Schröd Eq. Read: C-TDL, pages 643-660 for next lecture. Roadmap
