a slater determinant gives an asymmetric wave function for fermions(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

is the inverse right?

i.e., can the wave function of some fermions always be written in the form a slater determinant?

To make things concret, can the sum of two slater determinants be put into the form of a new slater determinant?
