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

I now able to understand spin matrix (if i am correct in other words Pauli matrix).

For e.g.,

for S=5/2 systems the spin matrix (say for S_{X}) is given by:

S_{x}= 1/2[a 6X6 matrix]

I hope members will know what is this 6X6 matrix! Since i don't know how to type matrix in this forum]..

Actually i wanted to know how this 6X6 matrix is obtained??

thanks and wish u a very happy new yr '09.
