comment Is the $N$ factorial in the Partition function for $N$ indistinguishable particle an approximation?
@V.Rossetto I should specify that I am considering two identical bosons with two energy levels which is not that physical. BTW, in your calculation of $\xi_i^{classical}$, why do we need to divide by N!?

@V.Rossetto, I see. I think your answer is very helpful. I do not think it is giving no because your illustration is based on a different background of this question.

It seems that I should claim that the particles are bosons, in order to make sense. @Nathaniel, thanks a lot for pointing this out.

There are several good answers and hard to pick which one to accept. I pick yours since your graph really helps a lot in the demonstration of the effectivity of the approximation. Thank you.
