In statistical mechanics, Bose-Einstein statistics means the statistics of a system where you can not tell the difference between any of the particles, and the particles are bosons. Bosons are fundamental particles like the photon.
with and where:
- n(ε) is the number of particles which have energy ε
- ε is the energy
- μ is the chemical potential
- k is Boltzmann's constant
- T is the temperature
