2, 1, -2, 1/2
4, 2, 1, -1/2
4, 2, -1, -1/2
2, 4, 1, -1/2
5, 3, -3, 1/2
5, 3, 4, 1/2
3, 2, 0, -2

  1. n can be any positive integer.
    l can be any integer from 0 to n-1
    ml can be -l to +l in steps of 1
    ms can be either +1/2 or -1/2

    1 is no because n can't be negative.
    2 is no because ml can be -1,0,or +1 but not 2.
    3 is OK.
    You go through the others.
