Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that for degenerate states, we need to apply degenerate perturbation theory by looking at the perturbative hamiltonian in the subspace of the degenerate states.

What then if the states still degenerate after we cast them the generate subspace. Is there a way to find the zero order 'good' eigenstate?

Thanks.
