Y. Castin: Bose–Einstein Condensates in Atomic Gases 19 Suppose that the trap is switched off at t = 0. 49) that is as the sum of kinetic energy, trapping potential energy and interaction energy. At time t = 0+ there is no trapping potential anymore so that the total energy of the gas reduces to Etot (0+ ) = Ekin + Eint . 50) In the limit t → +∞ the gas expands, the density and therefore the interaction energy drop, and all the energy Etot (0+ ) is converted into kinetic energy, which is measured.

19) 2m The problem is then formally reduced to the one of an ideal Bose gas moving in a self-consistent potential. For g > 0 the mean field corresponds to repulsive interactions, as 2gρ(r ) expels the atoms from the region of high density, while for g < 0 the mean field corresponds to attractive interactions. hHF (1) = 3 Note that for the present calculation the regularization of the pseudo-potential is not necessary. Indeed by considering plane waves as scattering states in ρˆ12 we suppress any problem of divergences in the commutator with V12 , and we can then take V12 as a simple delta distribution.

It is fortunately possible to show for the class of power-law potentials, scaling as 1/rn , that several of our conclusions, obtained in the finite range case, hold provided that n > 3. g. in the limit of small k’s only the s-wave scattering survives, and fk has a well defined limit for k → 0, allowing one to define the scattering length. 1 Why not keep the exact interaction potential? For alkali atoms the exact interaction potential has a repulsive hard core, is very deep (as deep as 103 Kelvins times kB for 133 Cs), has a minimum at a distance r12 on the order of 6 ˚ A (for cesium), and contains many bound states corresponding to molecular states of two alkali atoms (see Fig.
