Bose-Einstein statistics
Bose-Einstein statistics Bo`se-Ein"stein sta*tis"tics (b[=o]`z[-e] [imac]n"st[imac]n st[.a]*t[i^]s"t[i^]ks), prop. n. [From physicists S. N. Bose, and Albert Einstein.] (Physics) A law of statistical mechanics which is obeyed by a system of particles when interchange of two particles does not change the wave function. Contrasted to {Fermi-Dirac statistics}. See also {boson}. [PJC]
