Homework Help: Statistical thermodynamics

  1. May 1, 2006 #1
    I think I get the concept of fermi-dirac and bose-einstein statistics can follow the derivation of their distribution functions as per Stastical physics by Guénault but I'm having severe trouble trying to apply them:redface:.For what I imagine is a simple question, two identical particles are placed into four single partical states with energies 0, 0, E0 and 2E0. I'm asked to calculate the partition function, possible energy levels and their degeneracies for each distribution. I haven't been able to find a simple example on the internet or in the books I've searched so a simple clear explaination or even a good reference would be greatly appreciated.
