Two identical spin1/2 fermions are placed in the onedimensional harmonic potential
V(x)=(1/2) m w^2 x^2,
where m is the mass of the fermion and w its angular frequency.
(1) Find the energies of the ground and first excited states of this twofermion system. Express the eigenstates corresponding to these two energy levels in terms of harmonic oscillator wavefunctions and spin states.
(2) Calculate the square of the separation of the two fermions,
<(x1x2)^2>=<(x1^2+x2^22x1x2)>
for the lowest energy state of the twofermion system.
[(3) Repeat the calculations for the first excited states.]
~~So I'm unsure how to add the spacial components to that or if it's a good start at all. I've only done this for parrallel spin stuff
