Two bosons/fermions in a SHO.

  1. Oct 25, 2012 #1
    Lets say we have two spin 0 particles that dont interact more than being indistingishable..
    what are the degenercies for the energylevels?
    I would say:

    PHP:
    (n1, n2)                                  D
    ---------------------------------------

    (0,0)                                     1
    ((1,0)+(0,1))                             1

    ((2,0)+(0,2)); (1,1)                      2
    ((1,2) + (2,1));((3,0)+(0,3))             2

    with the pattern begin 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4...
    If we insted study 2 fermions of same type and same m-eigenvalue. I then got 0, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3 ,3...
    Do you agree with my results?
