One of the outstanding differences between classical theory and quantum mechanics is the importance which the latter attaches to the identity of particles. Although perfectly well realised before the introduction of modern quantum theory, the fact that two electrons are experimentally indistinguishable did not introduce any novel features into the dynamics of many electron systems on Bohr’s theory. However, Heisenberg showed that these identity relations are of fundamental importance in many… CONTINUE READING
