Bose condensation in an attractive fermion gas: From weak to strong coupling superconductivity

  • P. Nozières
  • S. Schmitt-Rink


We consider a gas of fermions interacting via an attractive potential. We study the ground state of that system and calculate the critical temperature for the onset of superconductivity as a function of the coupling strength. We compare the behavior of continuum and lattice models and show that the evolution from weak to strong coupling superconductivity is smooth.
