The typesetting is negative within the kindle edition:

1) Equations look as a (low caliber) experiment- they're quite grey and the answer is undesirable. it is a challenge for sub/superscripts in particular.

2) the mathematics symbols within the textual content range largely in caliber; a few are safely pointed out and handled as textual content, yet others as scanned photos- even in the similar equation. this can be a challenge as the scanned components aren't coated up with the text-like symbols, making issues look as sub/superscripts once they usually are not. additionally, continually, correct brackets (<) are thrice the peak of alternative issues, together with | and left brackets (>), which makes Dirac's notation tough to learn in a glance.

Since hamiltonians are second order differential operators in the coordinate representation we can assume that n = 0,1,2 in the term RmpR. Therefore we choose the set {Ra, RbPR , RcPM and try to find a, band c such that this set of operators is closed under commutation. 4.
