A relativistic complex scalar boson field at finite temperature $T$ is examined below its critical Bose-Einstein condensation temperature.

Abstract

A relativistic complex scalar boson field at finite temperature $T$ is examined below its critical Bose-Einstein condensation temperature. It is shown that at the same $T$ the state with antibosons has higher entropy, lower Helmholtz free energy and higher pressure than the state without antibosons, but the same Gibbs free energy as it should. This implies that the configuration without antibosons is metastable. Results are generalized for arbitrary $d$ spatial dimensions.
