### Abstract

Recent developments are summarized in the theory of Bose-Einstein and Fermi-Dirac correlations, with emphasis on the necessity of a simultaneous analysis of particle spectra and quantum statistical correlations for a detailed reconstruction of the space-time picture of particle emission. The reviewed topics are as follows: basics and formalism of quantum-statistical correlations, model-independent analysis of short-range correlations, Coulomb wave-function corrections and the core/halo picture for n-particle Bose-Einstein correlations, the graph rules to calculate these correlations even with partial coherence in the core; particle interferometry in e^{+}e^{-} collisions including the Andersson-Hofmann model; the invariant Buda-Lund particle interferometry; the Buda-Lund, the Bertsch-Pratt and Yano-Koonin-Podgoretskii parameterizations, the Buda-Lund hydro model and its applications to (π/K) + p and Pb + Pb collisions at CERN SPS, and to low energy heavy ion collisions; the binary source formalism and the related oscillations in the two-particle Bose-Einstein and Fermi-Dirac correlation functions; the experimental signs of expanding rings of fire and shells of fire in particle and heavy ion physics and their similarity to planetary nebulae in stellar astronomy; the signal of partial restoration of the axial U_{A}(1) symmetry restoration in the two-pion Bose-Einstein correlation function; the back-to-back correlations of bosons with in-medium mass modifications; and the analytic solution of the pion-laser model.
