comment Phase shifts in scattering theory
I think, in retrospect my real problem is not really understanding the partial wave expansion.

comment Why does lambda decay violate parity?
Yes, I will take everyone at their word that the weak interaction does not conserve parity. Perhaps, what I mean is taking a look at the decay, either mathematically or at a glance, how do you know it does not conserve parity ?

comment What is the usefulness of the Wigner-Eckart theorem?
I think I have to give most helpful to this answer, because although Marek gave one that obviously had more theoretical detail, this one helped me to better understand where the W-E theorem falls within what I already know in quantum mechanics.

This is a really nice, practical example.

comment What is the usefulness of the Wigner-Eckart theorem?
I know what a group is and what an irreducible representation is. Though I am a little shaky on the rest of the group theory and the notation (the first part), this answer is helpful, particularly the last three paragraphs.
