## Main Question or Discussion Point

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.

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

Any clarification would be great appreciated.
