Pauli's Principle says:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"The wavefunction of two identical fermions must be totally antisymmetric".

I know that, for a antisymmetric wavefunction,

[itex](-1)^L*(-1)^{S+1}*(-1)^{I+1}=-1[/itex]

"totally antisymmetric" means this relation or it means that these 3 relations:

[itex](-1)^L=-1[/itex] and

[itex](-1)^{S+1}=-1[/itex] and

[itex](-1)^{I+1}=-1[/itex]

must be verified simultaneously?

Thank you!
