Expressions ([link] and ([link] are valid in any situation where orbital scattering occurs. They can in principle be used to estimate from the diffraction experiment the contribution of a few configurations that interact due to the [{\bf L}\cdot{\bf S}] operator. In delocalized situations, ([link] is the most suitable approach, while Racah's algebra can only be applied to one-centre cases.
