Spill from spherical basis[edit]

It seems the two concepts spherical basis + spherical tensor, and tensor operators + spherical tensor operators, are really very closely intertwined through the spherical harmonics, and also appear to be two separate things.

This article on tensor operators should include spherical tensor operators as a subset. The other article on spherical basis should discuss them then go on to explain spherical tensors. This arrangement of articles seems to nicely run with the terminology, as far as I can tell.

If there are big objections, which so far there aren't yet at wikiproject mathematics, then the changes can all be reverted easily. M∧Ŝc2ħεИτlk 08:54, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
