Addition theorem for Spherical Bessel function

Physics Asked by Boa_Constrictor on May 8, 2021

Is there a similar version of the summation theorem for spherical Bessel functions $j_{k}$ that of standard Bessel function $J_{k}$? Especially look below Eq.(3) in this paper for $J_{0}left(left|p-p’right|rright)$.

$$J_{0}left(left|vec{p}-vec{p’}right|rright)=sum_{k=-infty}^{infty}J_{k}left(prright)J_{k}left(p’rright)cos ktheta$$

where $theta$ is the angle between the two vectors in the plane.

I am interested to know whether a similar expression exist for $j_{0}left(left|vec{p}-vec{p’}right|rright)$, where the vector lies in three dimension.
