Abstract

[Identity. From very early days of quantum theory it was recognized that quanta were statistically strange (see ► Bose-Einstein statistics). Suspicion fell on the identity of quanta, of how they are to be counted [1, 2]. It was not until Paul A. Dirac's (1902–1984) work of 1926 (and his discovery of ► Fermi-Dirac statistics [3]) that the nature of the novelty was clear: the quantum state of exactly similar particles of the same mass, charge, and ► spin must be symmetrized, yielding states either symmetric or antisymmetric under permutations. This is the symmetry postulate (SP).]
