 Dear Daniel Crawford,

 Yes, their expression is the correct one.
 Who said it is incorrect ?
 What I was posting was absolutely
 about my own failure,
 and all wanted was to make sure
 that the expression in the book is correct
 and free from misprints for example.

 That's exactly what I have done
 and got exactly their result.
 I have already responded to some
 people that I had got the S&O result
 using second quantization.
 The latter is a tool I am really used to,
 for I am a pure theoretical physicist
 and am in the quantum chemistry business
 for a year may be for two --
 what an accident of life!  :-)
 My problem was that I was failing
 to get their result, using
 that clumsy determinantal technique.
 Which merely means that I am still missing
 some point in the book.
 It is a purely working situation
 and those who wished to help me
 (without any other prejudice intended)
 directed their mails to me.
 Science must be free
 from destructive emotions.
 Sincerely,
 Ayaz Bakasov.
