Thermodynamic quantities in a Bose-Einstein gas at the quantum limit in a strong magnetic field close to the critical temperature

We have determined the thermodynamic functions (the translational kinetic energy, the pressure, the chemical potential, and the specific heat jump) in a degenerate Boson gas, close to the temperature where a Bose-Einstein condensation takes place into the first Landau energy level in a strong magnetic field. It is shown that the rearrangement of the energy spectrum and the number density of the quantum states for charged particles in a quantizing magnetic field cause the thermodynamic functions for a degenerate Boson system to differ qualitatively and quantitatively from the analogous quantities in the absence of a field.
