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

I'm a bit confused about the notation for multi-electron orbitals.

For example, you have the notation

[tex]^{1}D_{2}[/tex],

which mean a singlet with S=0 L=2, J=2, right?

Now I've come across the notation (in Slater)

[tex]^{1}D_{2}^{0}[/tex]

What's the deal with the extra superscript 0?
