Abstract

We present here a new method for constructing the spherical harmonics wavefunctions. We introduce two chiral states u′ and v′ of chirality + 1/2 and - 1/2, respectively. Products of u′v′ of zero chirality, projected onto the angular momentum states, yield the spherical harmonics. We use similar techniques to construct the monopole harmonics.
