Unformatted text preview: s , the ratio of the number of symmetrical to the number of antisymmetrical states is ( s+1)/s . 3) CohenTannoudji, Chapter XIV, Complement D, p. 1447, Exercises 1, 2. For exercise 2, it is easiest to write out symmetric/antisymmetric combinations of space and of spin separately with known values of L and S, and then multiply them together to get the required symmetry. Remember that a term symbol is defined by 2S+1 L. Repeat exercise 2 for spin1/2 fermions....
