Field Exchange Forces (1) Particle Separation: Consider the expectation value of the distance between the two particles squared: < ( x1 − x 2 ) 2 >=< x12 > + < x12 > −2 < x1 x 2 > . Two Particles in a Box (distinguishable): If the two particles are distinguishable then D ψ αβ ( x1 , x 2 ) = ψ αβ ( x1 , x 2 ) = ψ α ( x1 )ψ β ( x 2 ) < x12 >= ∫ x12 | ψ α ( x1 ) | 2 dx1 ∫ | ψ β ( x 2 ) | 2 dx 2 =< x 2 > α 2 2 < x 2 >= ∫ | ψ α ( x1 ) | 2 dx1 ∫ x 2 | ψ β ( x 2 ) | 2 dx 2 =< x 2 > β < x1 x 2 >= ∫ x1 | ψ α ( x1 ) | 2 dx1 ∫ x 2 | ψ β ( x 2 ) | 2 dx 2 =< x > α < x > β and < ( x1 − x 2 ) 2 > D =< x 2 > α + < x 2 > β −2 < x > α < x > β Two Particles in a Box (classical indistinguishable): Classically if the two particles are indistinguishable then classical ρ αβ ( x1 , x 2 ) = 1 2 (| ψ αβ ) ( x1 , x 2 ) | 2 + | ψ βα ( x1 , x 2 ) | 2 and we get the same as the distinguishable case.
