preprint description
The symmetries of the wavefunction for identical particles, including anyons, are given a rigorous non-relativistic generalisation within pilot-wave formulations of quantum mechanics. In particular, parastatistics are excluded. The result has a rigorous generalisation to n particles and to spinorial wavefunctions. The relation to other non-relativistic approaches is briefly discussed.
