The number of ways to arrange N j indistinguishable particles into energy level j with g j quantum states with no more than one particle in each state (the Pauli exclusive principle) is equal to the number of ways to put distinguishable g j particles into N j occupied and g j-N j unoccupied states: Thus, the number of microstates for the macrostate (N 1 , N 2 ,N n ) is (13.13) )]. ln( ) ( ln ln [ )! ln( ! ln ! ln ln 1 1 1 1 i i i i i i n i i i n i i i n i i n i i FD N g N g N N g g N g N g = = = = = = = = = n i i i n i i U N N N 1 1 , , With applying the Lagrange multiplier method, we get the maximum ln FD corresponding to the equation: j=1, 2,n (13.15)(13....
