Website Detail Page

written by Kristel Michielsen and Hans De Raedt
This web page presents the issues of multiparticle systems and inference that arise due to the indistinguishability of quantum particles.  Animations of double-slit scattering of wavefunctions illustrate the differences between Fermions and Bosons.  These are explained by the symmetry of the different states.
