g =1 for generalized Fermi-Dirac statistics and g =0 for generalised Bose-Einstein statistics, then one gets the most probable distribution for g-ons [3]:
If we denote fermion with (f) and boson with (b), and because g =1 for generalized Fermi-Dirac statistics and g =0 for generalised Bose-Einstein statistics, then it follows that the wholeness of both (f) and (b).
