A Simple Method for Calculating Clebsch-Gordan Coefficients
Klink, W. H.; Wickramasekara, S.
European Journal of Physics, v31 n5 p1021-1030 Sep 2010
This paper presents a simple method for calculating Clebsch-Gordan coefficients for the tensor product of two unitary irreducible representations (UIRs) of the rotation group. The method also works for multiplicity-free irreducible representations appearing in the tensor product of any number of UIRs of the rotation group. The generalization to representations with multiplicity is straightforward and briefly discussed.
