I was wondering if bosons can create fermions ?
Cause I heard that photons which are bosons can create electrons which are fermions ? But then I heard from another source that fermions cannot be created.
Therfore, I am now confused.

Yes, as long as what's created conserves the total spin and charge (among other things). Not really a confusing process, truthfully...it was the easiest part of my Modern Physics course when I took it back in the day.

So you mean that a boson can create a pair of pseudobosons that later split up to form individual fermions ? Thereby conserving the spin .

And as for it being the easiest part of your Modern Physics course. Remember i'm not doing any Modern Physics course. I'm just reading a book out of interest and asking some the questions that I think of.

That could happen assuming all things I stated are conserved. Basically any conceivable split that results in all things being conserved can happen.

I wasn't meaning to offend you or anything, I was implying that if you have any more questions feel free to ask. I've got the physics and mathematical background to help you out
