THE PARTITION-FUNCTION FOR AN ANYON-LIKE OSCILLATOR
MetadataShow full item record
We compute the partition function of an anyon-like harmonic oscillator. The well known results for both the bosonic and fermionic oscillators are then re-obtained as particular cases of our function. The technique we employ is a non-relativistic version of the Green function method used in the computation of one-loop effective actions of quantum field theory.
