ECE 310, Spring 2005, HW 3 solutions Problem E2.41 a) Let Ω be the set of all possible arrangements of k indistinguishable photons in N intervals. By Bose-Einstein statistics, k Ω k = ( N - 1+ k k ) . Let A be the set of possible arrangements, at which no two photons occupy the same interval; in other words, each interval contains either one photon or zero photons. Then k A k = ( N k ) and P a = P ( A ) = k A k k Ω k = ( N k ) ( N - 1+ k k ) b) Let B be the event that at least two photons share some unit interval, then B = A c and P b = P ( B ) = 1 - P ( A ) = 1 - ( N k ) ( N - 1+ k k ) c) Let C be the event that two of k photons turned to be in the first interval or, in other words, k - 2 remaining photons were arranged in N - 1 intervals. Hence, k C k = ( N - 4+ k k - 2 ) and P c = P ( C ) = ( N - 4+ k k - 2 ) ( N - 1+ k k ) Problem E2.42 a) According to Bose-Einstein statistics (page 78), there are m = ( 10 - 1+3 3 ) = ( 12 3 ) = 220 distinguishable arrangements. b) The event A corresponds to one of m possible arrangements, thus k A k = 1 and P ( A ) = 1 ( 12 3 ) = 0 . 0045(45) c) The event B is that none of 3 photons are in the cell q 1 , which is the

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
