Abstract
A new approach based on algebraic quantum operator, is pursued in order to investigate the Aharonov-Bohm effect. Introducing a SU(2) dynamical invariance algebra, the discrete spectrum and the energy level of the quantum Aharonov-Bohm effect is obtained. This alternative method will help undergraduate students to broader their knowledge about this interesting quantum phenomenon.
