Does anyone know what the formula is for the following:
<j m  S^2_{+} j m > = ? Reference to equations in Sakurai would be helpful in deriving the relation. I would suspect 3.5.37 but what about the delta_j j' ? Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

3.5.35 a
<j',mJ^2 j,m> = j(j+1)hbar^2 delta_j j' delta m m' 3.5.37 is J_+ j,m> = c_jm^+ j,m+1>

These appear to be formulas for finding the spin, and or angular momentum, of a wavefunction. What is your question exactly?
