# Obtaining the decuplet of baryon states from one state

• I
Hi, guys.

If you are given one state of the baryon decuplet (the upper-right state ##\Deltaˆ{++}=uuu##, for instance), you can use the ladder operators to get the other states of the decuplet.
When I apply ##T_-## to uuu and normalizing, I get ##\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}(duu+udu+uud)##. However, in the decuplet I see ##\Deltaˆ+=uud## instead of ##\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}(duu+udu+uud)##. Why?
