Static Properties of Trapped Bose Gases at Finite Temperature: Thomas-Fermi Limit

By M. Benarous and H. Chachou-samet


We rely on a variational approach to derive a set of equations governing a trapped self-interacting Bose gas at finite temperature. In this work, we analyze the static situation both at zero and finite temperature in the Thomas-Fermi limit. We derive simple analytic expressions for the condensate properties at finite temperature. The noncondensate and anomalous density profiles are also analyzed in terms of the condensate fraction. The results are quite encouraging owing to the simplicity of the formalism.
