Abstract Note  Application of quantum mechanics in physics and chemistry often entails manipulation and evaluation of sums and products of coupling coefficients for the theory of angular momentum. Challenges encountered in such work can be tamed by graphical techniques that provide both the insight and analytical power. The book is the first stepbystep exposition of a graphical method grounded in established work. Copious exercises recover standard results but demonstrate the power to go beyond
