Homework Help: Stationary Quantum State help

  1. Aug 19, 2007 #1
    Q: Explain the meanings of the four quantum numbers, n, l, m, σ which label the stationary states of the electron in the hydrogen atom.

    i know what n and m are i can't find anywhere wat l is but i think its radius of orbit, but what is σ?
