Racah V-Coefficient

The Racah V-coefficients are written


and are sometimes expressed using the related Clebsch-Gordan coefficients


or Wigner 3j-symbols. Connections among the three are

 (j_1j_2m_1m_2|j_1j_2m)=(-1)^(-j_1+j_2-m)sqrt(2j+1)(j_1 j_2 j; m_1 m_2 -m)
 V(j_1j_2j;m_1m_2m)=(-1)^(-j_1+j_2+j)(j_1 j_2 j_1; m_2 m_1 m_2).
