Abstract

Electron spin wavefunctions are expressed in the Young orthogonal representation. The normalization factor is calculated. An explicit expression for the first column elements of the Young orthogonal matrices is obtained by a comparison to the branching diagram wavefunctions. These matrix elements are used in a multideterminant representation of the total wavefunction. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
