We prove exponential decay of the off-diagonal correlation function in the two-dimensional homogeneous Bose gas when a2ρ is small and the temperature T satisfies T>4πρ/ln|ln(a2ρ)|. Here, a is the scattering length of the repulsive interaction potential and ρ is the density. To the leading order in a2ρ, this bound agrees with the expected critical temperature for superfluidity. In the three-dimensional Bose gas, exponential decay is proved when T−Tc(0)/Tc(0)>5√aρ1/3, where Tc(0) is the critical…

The free energy of a dilute two-dimensional Bose gas
We study the interacting homogeneous Bose gas in two spatial dimensions in the thermodynamic limit at fixed density. We shall be concerned with some mathematical aspects of this complicated problem
The Scattering Length at Positive Temperature
A positive temperature analogue of the scattering length of a potential V can be defined via integrating the difference of the heat kernels of −Δ and $${-\Delta + \frac{1}{2}V}$$, with Δ the

We provide a rigorous derivation of nonlinear Gibbs measures in two and three space dimensions, starting from many-body quantum systems in thermal equilibrium. More precisely, we prove that the

The model of spatial permutations is related to the Feynman-Kac representation of the Bose gas. The transition to infinite cycles corresponds to Bose-Einstein condensation. We review the general

We consider the distribution of cycles in two models of random permutations, that are related to one another. In the first model, cycles receive a weight that depends on their length. The second
