Representation of O(3)
Posted:

Hi, it is well known, that sperical harmonucs create representation of O(3). Now consider rotation matrices, e.g. parametrized by Eulerian angles: R(a,b,c). This are themself a representation of O(3). Therefore it should be possible to write R by the 3 D matrices with J=1 and m=1,0,1. Where can I find some info about this? cheers, Daniel
