  • ClebschGordan[ , , , , j , m ] gives the Clebsch-Gordan coefficient for the decomposition of in terms of .
  • The Clebsch-Gordan coefficients vanish except when and the satisfy a triangle inequality.
  • The parameters of ClebschGordan can be integers, half-integers or symbolic expressions.
  • Mathematica uses the standard conventions of Edmonds for the phase of the Clebsch-Gordan coefficients.
