I'm calculating the zz Component for the quadruple tensor.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] Q_{zz} = 3cos^2\theta-1 [/tex](r=1 in this case), and the [tex] Y_{lm}(\theta,\phi) [/tex] would be l=2, m=0.

I would like to calculate the result in either maple or mathematica - I have not used either very much - I want to check the result using the wigner-eckhart theorem against this - and if anyone feels like offering input here as well, much appreciated.
