Abstract:
This thesis is concerned mainly with the accidental degeneracy of the n-dimensional anisotropic harmonic oscillator. The general concept of accidental degeneracy is defined, and a summary is given of some of the explanations for it. A description is presented of Mackey's theory of group representations for general semi-direct product groups. This is followed by a method for the explicit application of the theory to the cases which arise in this thesis.
