**[SOLVED] density of states for a Bose gas**

**1. Homework Statement**

My book (Kittel) says that the density of states of an ideal Bose gas is:

[tex]D(\epsilon) = V/4\pi^2 \left(2M/\hbar^2 \right)^{3/2} \epsilon^{1/2}[/tex]

I do not understand why the density of states is not identically infinity since the point of a Bose gas is that an orbital can be occupied by an unlimited number of bosons.
