matrix elements of the electronic molecular Hamiltonian between a hartree product and a Slater determinant

This may belong in Chemistry, but I thought I might try my luck here first. In Szabo's book, an exercise requires a proof that = (N!)^(1/2) * given that |K(HP)> is the Hartree product wave ...

How do I find the unitary operator for a combined system?

I want to describe the interaction between a target and a probe and know that this is described by some unitary operator that acts on both systems. My operator needs to implement a $\pi/q$ rotation ...
