In the Griffiths text book for Quantum Mechanics, It just gives the ladder operator to be(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

L_{±}≡L_{x}±iL_{y}

With reference to it being similar to QHO ladder operator. The book shows how that ladder operator is obtained, but it doesn't show how angular momentum operator is derived.

Ive searched the internet for past hour and I just can't get what I'm looking for... can anyone help?
