I have read that when 2 Hydrogen atoms come together their individual spacial wavefunctions overlap in the following way:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ψ_{symmetric}= ψ_{a}+ ψ_{b}... bonding case

ψ_{asymmetric}= ψ_{a}- ψ_{b}... antibonding case

How do you express this in terms of the Slater Determinant?
