My understanding of the Hartree approximation is that the product wavefunction is symmetric rather than antisymmetric, therefore the Hartree approximation effectively ignores the Pauli exclusion principle.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So how does the Pauli-exclusion principle get taken account of in the Hartree model?

Any clarification would be great appreciated.
