BoseEinsteincondensation temperature of a gas of weakly dissociated diatomic molecules
Abstract
We consider the properties of a gas of bosonic diatomic molecules in the limit when few of the molecules are dissociated. Taking into account the effects of dissociation and scattering among molecules and atoms, we calculate the dispersion relation for a molecule, and the thermal depletion of the condensate. We calculate the dependence of the BoseEinsteincondensation (BEC) temperature of a uniform gas on the atomatom scattering length, and conclude that, for a broad Feshbach resonance, the condensation temperature increases as the molecular state becomes less strongly bound, thereby giving rise to a maximum in the transition temperature in the BECBCS crossover. We also argue on general grounds that, for a gas in a harmonic trap and for a narrow Feshbach resonance, the condensation temperature will decrease with increasing scattering length.

We compute the shift of the transition temperature for a homogeneous weakly interacting Bose gas in leading order in the scattering length a for given particle density n. Using variational perturbation theory through six loops in a classical threedimensional scalar field theory, we obtain {delta}T{sub c}/T{sub c}=1.25{+}0.13an{sup 1/3}, in agreement with recent Monte Carlo results.

BoseEinstein condensation temperature of a homogenous weakly interacting Bose gas in variational perturbation theory through seven loops
The shift of the BoseEinstein condensation temperature for a homogenous weakly interacting Bose gas in leading order in the scattering length a is computed for given particle density n. Variational perturbation theory is used to resum the corresponding perturbative series for {delta}<{phi}{sup 2}>/Nu in a classical threedimensional scalar field theory with coupling u and where the physical case of N=2 field components is generalized to arbitrary N. Our results for N=1,2,4 are in agreement with recent Monte Carlo simulations; for N=2, we obtain {delta}T{sub c}/T{sub 0}=(1.27{+}0.11)an{sup 1/3}. We use sevenloop perturbative coefficients, extending earlier work by one loop order. 
BoseEinstein condensation temperature of a homogeneous weakly interacting Bose gas: Path integral Monte Carlo study
Using a finitetemperature path integral Monte Carlo simulation (PIMC) method and finitesize scaling, we have investigated the interactioninduced shift of the phasetransition temperature for BoseEinstein condensation of homogeneous weakly interacting Bose gases in three dimensions, which is given by a proposed analytical expression T{sub c}=T{sub c}{sup 0}{l_brace}1+c{sub 1}an{sup 1/3}+[c{sub 2}{sup '} ln(an{sup 1/3})+c{sub 2}]a{sup 2}n{sup 2/3}+O(a{sup 3}n){r_brace}, where T{sub c}{sup 0} is the critical temperature for an ideal gas, a is the swave scattering length, and n is the number density. We have used smaller number densities and more time slices than in the previous PIMC simulations [Gruter et al.,more » 
BoseEinstein condensation temperature of a trapped interacting BoseFermi gas mixture
We calculate the critical temperature of a trapped interacting BoseFermi gas mixture by means of a firstorder perturbation method in a localdensity approximation. An explicit analytical expression is derived for the dependence of the critical temperature on the numbers of bosons and fermions, the strengths of bosonboson and bosonfermion interactions, and the trapping frequencies. 
Do quasiparticles in high{Tc} superconductors condense like molecules of a percent gas in the BoseEinstein condensation?
Far IR transmission spectra of very thin YBaCuO films in the 1040 cm{sup {minus}1} range have now sufficient accuracy and reproducibility to show that the number of quasiparticles at temperature {Theta} < {Theta}{sub c}, {Theta}{sub c} being the transition temperature, do not follow a {Theta}{sup 4} law, but rather a {Theta}{sup 1.5} one.
