in the appendix on Group Theory in Zee's book there is a discussion of commutations for SO(3) two questions - does [[itex]J^{ij},J^{lk}] = J^{ij}*J^{lk}-J^{lk}*J^{ij}[/itex]? and there is an expression in the appendix that the commutator equals i([itex]\delta^{ik}J^{jl} ...[/itex] i don't understand the why you are multiplying the matrix by the kronecker delta with different upstairs indexes, is not it simply an identity?
bumping this - this apparantly is some notation I don't understand, the Wiki entry on Special Unitary groups has this as well I don't get the significance of the kronecker deltas with the different indexes
