5.6. IDENTICAL PARTICLES 71 For ψ gs to be normalized, its square norm must be one: a ψ gs | ψ gs A = 1 . According to the previous subsection, this inner product evaluates as the sum of the inner products of the matching spin components: a a ++ ψ gs ,0 | a ++ ψ gs ,0 A + a a + − ψ gs ,0 | a + − ψ gs ,0 A + a a − + ψ gs ,0 | a − + ψ gs ,0 A + a a −− ψ gs ,0 | a −− ψ gs ,0 A = 1 Now the constants a ±± can be pulled out of the inner products as | a ±± | 2 , and the inner products that are left, all a ψ gs ,0 | ψ gs ,0 A , are one since ψ gs ,0 was normalized through the choice of the constant a . So the claimed expression results. 5.5.6 Triplet and singlet states 220.127.116.11 Solution complexse-a Question: Like the states ↑↑ , ↑↓ , ↓↑ , and ↓↓ ; the triplet and singlet states are an orthonormal
