I Bose-Einstein condensates coherence

  1. May 28, 2017 #1
    Hello forum! I'm studying classical and quantum coherence and there's some bug in particular I can't solve on my own, nor I could find anywhere.
    I've read that a Bose-Einstein condensate is a coherent state but it seems to me inconsistent with the definition of coherence given by Glauber. In fact, he showed that a thermal source (which follows a B-E distribution), is not second order coherent because of the correlation among particles. Am I missing something?
