The Schrödinger equation is solved for an A-nucleon system using an expansion of the wave function in nonsymmetrized hyperspherical harmonics. The present approach is based on a formalism developed by Gattobigio et al. (Phys. Rev. A 79:032513, 2009; Few-Body Syst. 45:127-131, 2009; Phys. Rev. C 83:024001, 2011). Spin and isospin degrees of freedom are included; this makes possible calculations with realistic NN potential models. The fermionic ground state is determined by introducing an additional potential term involving the Casimir operator such that the antisymmetric ground state becomes the lowest eigenstate of the A-body system. Results are discussed for 4He with the realistic AV18 NN potential and for 6Li with the semirealistic MTI/III NN potential.
