Quantum Statistics of Many-Particle Systems
The properties and the behaviour of systems composed of many elementary particles, atomic nuclei, atoms etc. are described by the quantum statistics. We assume that the reader is familiar with the most important features of quantum theory and statistical mechanics (see, e.g., Dirac, 1958; Messiah, 1961; Fick, 1968; Landau and Lifshits, 1967). Therefore in this chapter we will give only a brief introduction to this field, in order to explain the main ideas, relations and notations.
