Degenerate Perturbation Theory

  1. Jan 23, 2014 #1

    So I was reading this and I don't understand how he goes from 658 to 661 using the completeness relation. In 661 if you use the completeness relaton can you get rid of the I n,l''>s by doing the outer product and ignoring the inner product first? I mean if you get rid of I n,l''>s you get <n,l'I H_1 In,l1>which equals lamba etc.

    Too hard to read the dense notation, sorry.
