Average number of occupation

Particle in a 3D box:
Calculating explicitly the total number:
But what happens now if I let at this temperature the density n V of the substance increase(e.g., by isothermal compression) to even higher values?
I claim that in this case a number of molecules which always grows with the total density makes a transition to the 1. quantum state (state without kinetic energy)… … The claim thus asserts that something similar happens as when isothermally compressing a vapor beyond the volume of saturation. A separation occurs; a part “condenses”, the rest remains a “saturated ideal gas”. (Einstein, 1925).
The order of the de Broglie wavelenght is the same as the volume ocupied by the ensemble
Number of the particles that falls to the “condensate” state
This whole theory assume non interacting particles: Schrödinger Equation
Interacting Particles: Gross-Pitaeviski Eq.
