Bosons's amplitude to go into the same state at low temperatures

  1. Aug 2, 2012 #1
    Hi I was reading Feynman's third book and I don't understand why, with bosons at low temperatures, 'there's more amplitude to go into the same state than into an unoccupied state by the famous factor √n, where n is the occupancy of the lowest state'.

    Thanks.

    Since the context could be useful, it's in page 21-8 of the third volume.
