values of the principle quantum number of this electron, and it approaches
pure JK as this quantum number increases. It is emphasized that LK or JK
notation would best be used only when the coupling conditions approximate
LK or jK coupling, respectively; either notation can serve to unambigously
identify levels throughout the range of intermediate pair couplings, but
will not correctly designate the nature of the quantum states because of
reversals of the L and j compositions of certain states as the coupling
conditions change from pure LK to pure jK.
Here’s what’s next.
