Wigner Eckart theorem

  1. Jun 16, 2011 #1
    I originally posted this in the Science Book and discussion forum but received no help. Am posting it here, hoping that I will.

    I was looking for material that would go over the Wigner Eckart theorem and mathematics of Angular Momentum in more rigor than the traditional texts do (in specific Ballentine). I am not only looking for books, but any papers, articles which treat the following in a more rigorous mathematical footing would be appreciated.

    What kind of rigor are you looking for?

    From the point of view of Lie algebras and groups. Hopefully, one that develops the material from scratch.

    For a mathematical treatment of this kind of thing, I have found Fuchs & Schweigert "Symmetries, Lie Algebras and Representations" good.

    Thanks henry. I'll look into it.
