    i'm physics student until 18 years ago and i don't finish the course.
    this year i have some time and i decided to try finish.
    one of the disciplines is Complements of Atomic Physics.
    i understand the principles but the mathematical is very complicated for me.
    it just have passed very years.
    i just have three disciplines to finish the course.
    if you can help me with this i apreciate.

    sorry for bad english.

    thks in advance.

    Incidentally some of the ppl here don't have the book, but perhaps might be willing to help you. So how about doing all of us a favor and post both the texts of the problems and your attempts to solving them.

    Exercise 2.16 A different procedure for deriving the above matrix ele...
    ments uses the theorem that <K|H|L> = (N!)1/2<KHP|H|L> where |KHP >
    is the Hartree product corresponding to the determinant |K>, i.e.,
    |K> = |Xm(x 1 )Xn(X 2 ) . ยท . >


    |KHP> = Xm(x 1 )Xn(X 2 ) . . .
    Prove this theorem. Use it to derive the matrix elements of a sum of one-
    electron operators.

    You still need to show us some work. We are not going to do the problems for you.

    as i said i'm with very difculty with mathematics because a don't study a long time ago 18 years. and i only read the book because i don't have so much time to do all that things.
    but that's ok i understand your point of view.
