Bose's significant contributions to science are not only remembered with the terms Bose-Einstein statistics and Bose-Einstein condensate, but also with the name for a class of physical particles, the boson—a story beautifully told by John S. Rigden :
There are various ways that fame comes to a scientist. For Satyendranath Bose it was asking Albert Einstein to run interference for him. Eventually his name was linked with Einstein's in both statistical method of dealing with quantum particles, called Bose-Einstein statistics, as well as the peculiar state of matter known as the Bose-Einstein condensate. In addition, Bose had a class of particles named after him: the boson. […]Keywords: physics, history, Bose-Einstein statistics, quantum chemistry
