Wick's theorem for other statistics

  1. Apr 6, 2012 #1
    Hi all!
    I've got a question concerning Wick's theorem. I followed the proof in the book by Fetter and Walecka and it works well for particles with "normal" statistic, that means for bosons and fermons (commuting or anticommuting). But what about anyons, particles which don't commute just with a delta or 1 but with an arbitrary phase factor? I think the proof doesn't apply to such particles. So the question is, if there is a Wick's theorem or something similar for anyons.
    Thank you for any help!
