This book introduces the quantum theory of angular momentum to students who are unfamiliar with it and develops it to a stage useful for research.
The first part contains the basic theory of rotations and angular momentum. As the book aims to emphasize applications, mathematical details are avoided and difficult theorems stated without proof. The second part contains examples of applications to a wide range of physical phenomena and presents a collection of results helpful in solving problems.
