molecules**Question: How a complex particle, like an atom, can behave**as a single whole, a compound boson • ESSENTIAL CONDITIONS • All compound particles in the ensemble must be identical; the identity includes • detailed elementary particle composition • characteristics like mass, charge or spin • The total spin must have an integer value • The identity requirement extends also on the values of observables corresponding to internal degrees of freedom • which are not allowed to vary during the dynamical processes in question • The system of the compound bosons must be dilute enough to make the exchange effects between the component particles unimportant and absorbed in an effective weak short range interaction between the bosons as a whole**Example: How a complex particle, like an atom, can behave as**a single whole, a compound boson RUBIDIUM -- THE FIRST ATOMIC CLOUD TO UNDERGO BEC • single element Z = 37 • single isotope A = 87 • single electron configuration**Example: How
