 Discussion
If the specific angular momentum of the accreting plasma is greater than that of the neutron star, the trailing edge of pulse profiles will be brighter (Wang and Welter 1981).
If the plasma specific angular momentum is less than that of the star the leading edge of the pulse profile will be brighter.
Similarly, during the spin-down era of the 1980's (when the star specific angular momentum was presumably more than that of the accretion plasma) one would expect leading-edge-bright pulses.

 9 Quasi-Local Spin-Angular Momentum
In this section we review three specific quasi-local spin-angular momentum constructions that are (more or less) ‘quasi-localizations’ of Bramson’s expression at null infinity.
Since, however, Bramson’s superpotential is an algebraic expression of the basic variables, and the number of the derivatives in the expression for the angular momentum should be one, the angular momentum expressions based on Bramson’s superpotential must contain the derivative of the ‘quasi-rotations’, i.e.
Since, however, such an expression cannot be sensitive to the ‘change of the origin’, they can be expected to yield only the spin part of the angular momentum.

The constraint from the conservation of momentum is more complicated because the velocity of the photons depends on the index of refraction within the crystal.
It is these cases, in which the angles of the output photons allow their total momentum to equal the original momentum, that phase-matching occurs.
Another application of entangled photons is measuring the relative delay of two photons of different polarization within a material.

For example, it correctly predicted that hydrogen could exist in two types, depending on the relative orientation of the angular momentum of the nucleus.
Two of these cases that have been frequently noted are the singularity at the centre of a fl hole, and on the very small scale but high density conditions of the Big Bang at the beginning of the Universe.
On the other hand, relativity is a 'classical' theory, in the sense that it deals with smooth continuities and so has not been 'quantised.' Every attempt so far to bring quantum theory and relativity into agreement has failed for various mathematical reasons.

 Polarization
The field define specific planes, and thus a single electromagnetic wave is said to be linearly, or plane, polarized.
It is important to note that the angular momentum of a photon is completely independent of its energy.
Thus, a purely left­circularly polarized plane wave will impart angular momentum to the target as if all the constituent photons in the beam had their spins aligned in the direction of propagation.

 REGULATION OF THE STELLAR ANGULAR VELOCITY
These observations suggest that T Tauri stars in accretion disk systems are subjected to a regulation of their angular velocities, countering the tendency to spin up both from accretion of disk material of high specific angular momentum and from readjustments in moment of inertia as they contract toward the main sequence.
However, this approach does not suggest any natural explanation to regulate the angular velocity of the convective, accreting star, nor is the means for the dynamo to drive the wind identified.
The MHD calculations exploring the coupling between the disk and the magnetosphere and the subsequent extraction of angular momentum from the star differ significantly (Ghosh and Lamb, 1979; Konigl, 1991; Shu et al., 1994; Cameron and Campbell, 1993; Ghosh, 1995; Clark et al., 1995), but all agree on a few fundamental points.
