    Abstract

    We investigate multi-boson interference. A Hamiltonian is presented that treats pairs of bosons as a single composite boson. This Hamiltonian allows two pairs of bosons to interact as if they were two single composite bosons. We show that this leads to the composite bosons exhibiting novel interference effects, such as Hong-Ou-Mandel interference. We then investigate generalisations of the formalism to the case of interference between two general composite bosons. Finally, we show how one can realise interference between composite bosons in the two-atom Dicke model.
