Explanations in this section should contain no formulas, but instead colloquial things like you would hear them during a coffee break or at a cocktail party.

- A nice book on the topic is Pauli And The Spin-Statistics Theorem by Ian Duck, E.C.G. Sudarshan

- The standard reference is the book PCT, Spin and Statistics, and All That by Raymond F. Streater,

The spin-statistics theorem tells us that there can be never two identical fermions in the same state (they anticommute), while there can be arbitrarily many identical bosons.

- Why are anticommutators needed in quantization of Dirac fields?
