This is a stupid question (good that I ask). String theory treats bosons and fermions in different ways e.g fermion potential are differ from boson potentials,actions differ and so on...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is simply : why?

Yes I know fermions and bosons are different groups of particles (integer and non-integer spin) and have many differences, but how are these incoperated in the action or potential.

Specifically why does one need anticomuting dynamical variables for fermions?

Thanks for any clarifications.
