I need help figuring out the expression for the constant [tex]c_+[/tex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

expressed in j and m in the following equation:

[tex]\hat J_+|Y_{jm}>=c_+|Y_{jm+1}>[/tex]

Y is just spherical harmonics and [tex]\hat J_+=\hat J_x + i\hat J_y[/tex] is a ladderoperator.
