It's just a terrible mess of +,-,*,/ and a few sqrts.
Most of the calculation can be done using integers,
but currently I only needed special 3j symbols for
which explicit formulas are known.
Please note that 3j symbols are not just number but real valued functions
taking 6 integer parameters,
e.g. ClebschGordon_3j( j1, m1, j2, m2, j3, m3) ; j_i>=0; abs(m_i) <= j_i
corresponding to the coupling of two angular moments to a third one.
