Combinants, certain linear combinations of ratios of probabilities, were introduced earlier by Kauffmann and Gyulassy to study boson multiplicities. It is shown that combinants can be a useful tool to distinguish between bosons coming from the secondary decay of other particles such as deltas and bosons emitted from thermally equilibrated sources.
