2Physics Quote:
"The exchange character of identical particles plays an important role in physics. For bosons, such an exchange leaves their quantum state the same, while a single exchange between two fermions gives a minus sign multiplying their wave function. A single exchange between two Abelian anyons gives rise to a phase factor that can be different than 1 or -1, that corresponds to bosons or fermions, respectively. More exotic exchanging character are possible, namely non-Abelian anyons. These particles have their quantum state change more dramatically, when an exchange between them takes place, to a possibly different state." -- Jin-Shi Xu, Kai Sun, Yong-Jian Han, Chuan-Feng Li, Jiannis K. Pachos, Guang-Can Guo

We are taking a break

We regret that due to unavoidable reasons, we need to take a break. We'll not have our regular postings in next two weeks. Regular postings will resume on April 10th. In the mean-time, you may go through our past postings on various topics of interest. We suggest that you use the search box on top to search for past postings on topics of your interest (e.g. 'Einstein', 'Fusion', 'Nobel Prize', etc...)
