What are the eigenfunctions of the spin operators? I know the spin operators are given by Pauli matricies (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spin_operator#Mathematical_formulation_of_spin), and I know what the eigenvalues are (and the eigenvectors), but I have no idea what the eigenfunctions of the spin operator are. I searched google but I could not find a derivation. Does anyone know how to find the eigenfunctions of the spin operator?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
