Mathematics of the Slater Determinant

This post, largely based on Reference 1, is about the Slater determinant. The Slater determinant is related to the Hartree Product. In that post, it was determined that a Hartree Product does not meet the antisymmetry principle. The Slater determinant is one way to fix this problem. John C. Slater, developer of the Slater determinant. Two Electrons …
