Identical particles exhibit correlations even in the absence of inter-particle interaction, due to the exchange (anti)symmetry of the many-particle wavefunction. Two fermions obey the Pauli principle and anti-bunch, whereas two bosons favor bunched, doubly occupied states. Here, we show that the collective interference of three or more particles leads to much more diverse behavior than expected from the boson–fermion dichotomy known from quantum statistical mechanics. The emerging complexity of many-particle interference is tamed by a simple law for the strict suppression of events in the Bell multiport beam splitter. The law shows that counting events are governed by widely species-independent interference, such that bosons and fermions can even exhibit identical interference signatures, while their statistical character remains subordinate. Recent progress in the preparation of tailored many-particle states of bosonic and fermionic atoms promises experimental verification and applications in novel many-particle interferometers.

no article we studied collective interference of bosons and fermions the two-photon experiment by Homeland mumble is that would generalize to scheme for many bosons and fermions giving a rich landscape of interference patterns surprisingly all the bosons and fermions obey different statistics they can exhibit very similar interference to begin with how can particles interfere collectively for seeing that will let 2 particles fall into the 2 but most of the beam splitters as a reference point let's see what happens for
2 distinct real particles which cannot interfere collectively to find exactly 1 particle the job that node with particles need to be transmitted Paul reflected the probabilities of these distinguishable processes either define 2 particles in 1 mode 1 particles reflected the other 1 transmitted even probabilities for identical particle so different due to collective interference let's start with 2 fermions the particles cannot and in the same all node due to the poly principle in turn the 2 processes with both particles
