^{[e]} - Angular momentum coupling [r]: The procedure of constructing eigenvectors of a system's angular momentum out of angular momentum eigenvectors of its subsystems.
^{[e]} - Angular momentum (quantum) [r]: A vector operator of which the three components have well-defined commutation relations.
^{[e]} - Magnetization [r]: Magnetic moment per unit volume of a material, denoted
**M**, defined in terms of the magnetic moments of its constituents by**M**=(1/*V*)Σ_{j}**m**_{j}where the magnetic moment**m**of the_{j}*j*-th constituent in the volume*V*is a vector property that determines the torque the object experiences in a magnetic field tending to align its moment with the field.^{[e]} - Magnetic constant [r]: A physical constant in the International System of Units (SI) relating mechanical force and electric current in classical vacuum with a defined value
*μ*= 4_{0}*π*× 10^{−7}N/A^{2}.^{[e]} - Magnetic field [r]: Vector field
**H**caused by permanent magnets, conduction currents, and displacement currents.^{[e]} - Magnetic induction [r]: A divergence-free electromagnetic field, denoted
**B**, determining the Lorentz force upon a moving charge, and related to the magnetic field**H**.^{[e]} - Pauli spin matrices [r]: Three anticommuting matrices, each having two rows and two columns, which represent the components of the electron spin operator.
^{[e]} - Russell-Saunders coupling [r]: A coupling scheme of electronic spin- and orbital-angular momenta in atomic spectroscopy.
^{[e]} - Spherical harmonics [r]: A series of harmonic basis functions that can be used to describe the boundary of objects with spherical topology.
