Symmetry Between Bosons and Fermions

  • Yoshio Ohnuki
  • Susumu Kamefuchi


By definition Bosons and Fermions behave quite differently as regards statistics. It is equally true, however, that in some other respects they do behave similarly or even symmetrically. In the present paper we would like to show that such similarity or symmetry can be exhibited most fully when the theory is formulated in a specific manner, i.e. in terms of annihilation and creation operators aj and \( a_j^\dag \) or what will be termed g-numbers.
