Название: Spin Network Primer
Автор: Major S.A.
Spin networks, essentially labeled graphs, are \good quantum numbers" for the quantum theory of geometry. These structures encompass a diverse range of techniques which may be used in the quantum mechanics of nite dimensional systems, gauge theory, and knot theory. Though accessible to undergraduates, spin network techniques are buried in more complicated formulations. In this paper a diagrammatic method, simple but rich, is introduced through an association of 22 matrices to diagrams. This spin network diagrammatic method oers new perspectives on the quantum mechanics of angular momentum, group theory, knot theory, and even quantum geometry. Examples in each of these areas are discussed.
