Boson

The “boson”, a fundamental particle, with integer spin (1, 2, etc.), which conforms to Bose-Einstein statistics, was named after Satyendra Bose in a 6 Dec 1945 lecture by Paul Dirac, entitled “Developments in Atomic Theory”, wherein he used the term to refer to quantum particles that obey laws set out by German-born American physicist Albert Einstein and Bose.

Landau rankings

Russian physicist Lev Landau, in his personal genius rankings scale (see: Landau genius scale), ranked Bose, Landau (c.1935) ranked him with #1, in his person genius scale, alongside: Paul Dirac (IQ:190|#42), Erwin Schrodinger (IQ:190|#30), Richard Feynman (IQ:190|#33), Niels Bohr (IQ:185|#76),

Werner Heisenberg (IQ:180|#90), Louis de Broglie (IQ:?|#), and Eugene Wigner (IQ:?|#), which yields a mean genius comparison IQ of 187.

Einstein

In 1925, Albert Einstein and Bose predicted a new state of matter at ultra-low temperatures, which was confirmed in 1995, aka the Bose-Einstein condensate, as studied in low-temperature thermodynamics.

Bose, together with Einstein, also developed a model for the heat capacity in solids and gases, and developed a variation of statistics allowing for the description of the behavior of bosons. [2]
