Can Dirac equation be used for many particles (fermions) system (i.e. a nucleus with many electrons)? And in this case how do you incorporate the anti-symmetry nature of the wavefunctions? Obviously Slater determined will complicate the equation to a point where it’s almost impossible to solve, and I’m not sure if we can instead use exchange interaction integral.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thank you.
