Keywords:  bose, integer, einstein, pauli, fermion
A fundamental particle that obeys Bose-Einstein statistical rules, but not the Pauli exclusion principle; the spin value of a boson is always an integer. Examples of bosons are alpha particles, photons, and those nuclei which have an even mass number.
a particle with integer spin (e.g. photons). The wave function describing a collection of bosons is symmetric with respect to the exchange of identical particles. Bosons are not constrained by the Pauli exclusion principle and can condense into a single energy state at very low temperatures. This is called Bose-Einstein condensation.
a particle, or pattern of string vibration, with a whole number amount of spin; typically a messenger particle.
Boson is a real-time strategy game, like Command & Conquer or StarCraft. It uses the QT Toolkit and the KDE libraries. A minimum of two players is required, since there is no artifical intelligence yet. Boson is still in late development and not yet playable.
Boson is an OpenGL real-time strategy game. It is designed to run on Unix computers, and is built on top of the KDE, Qt and kdegames libraries.
