Hello,

I just recently learned about angular momentum operator. So far, I liked expressing my operators in this way: http://upload.wikimedia.org/math/8/2/6/826d794e3ca9681934aea7588961cafe.png

I like it this way because it shows that these operators are also matrices. But I can't seem to figure out a possible notational for the angular momentum operator...

Any ideas?
