This has the obvious quantum interpretation that the radiation from a multipole of
order (/, m) carries off mh units of z component of angular momentum per photon
of energy hw. In further analogy with quantum mechanics we would expect the ...
The moment Qlm is seen to be the same in form as the electrostatic multipole
moment qlm (4.3). The moment Qlm' is an induced electric multipole moment due
to the magnetization. It is generally at least a factor kr smaller than the normal ...
The presence of the factor (A:o)21 in the transition probability (16.104) means
that in the long- wavelength limit (ka < 1) the transition rate falls off rapidly with
increasing multipole order, for a fixed frequency. Consequently in an atomic or ...

A soul crushing technical manual written by a sadist that has served as the right of passage for physics PhDs since the dawn of time. Every single one of my professors studied this book, and every ... Read full review
