comment relative phase/sign in $\Psi$ after exchange of composite particles with angular momenta
Ok, then I must have misunderstood what "relative angular momentum" meant. So "relative" here comes from the relative coordinates of the two atoms instead of having to do with the difference. ... I was going in the wrong direction from the beginning, trying to bring in z-projections and Clebsch-Gordan coefficients etc. Thanks for the feedback. I actually made an edit stating my real question, about the (-1)^L factor. I may be able to answer it myself given some more time to think about it, but I'll leave it hanging here.

L and K are clear now. My real question was about (-1)^L

comment few fermions in a harmonic trap — position density matrix from diagrammatics
I actually tried the "Slater" version with N=3 too. Everything except the "diagrammatic" version seem to agree fairly closely. I guess for N=3, my diagrammatic reasoning is somehow wrong.

comment few fermions in a harmonic trap — position density matrix from diagrammatics
Sorry for the long delay in thanking you. I have just got around to working plotting your Ψ with Mathematica ("Slater") and found it to agree exactly with the "diagrammatic" version. The 2 curves lie right on top of each other. So it looks like there was a bug in my path integral Monte Carlo code ... Thanks again!
