The Bose distribution (also called Bose–Einstein distribution) gives the probability \( P(W) \) to encounter a boson (for example a photon) with the energy \( W \) in a quantum mechanical gas. Here, \( \mu \) is the chemical potential corresponding to the Fermi energy at \(T=0\). At absolute zero \( T = 0 \), all bosons are in a single state (in a ground state).
