@article{Chui2002CollapseTI, title={Collapse transition in mixtures of bosons and fermions (8 pages)}, author={S. T. Chui and V. N. Ryzhov}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={2002}, volume={69}, pages={43607} }

For mixtures of Bose and Fermi alkali-metal atoms, the fermion degrees of freedom can be integrated out in their finite temperature partition function. The final result can be expanded as a power series in the boson density. Under appropriate conditions, the pairwise interaction between the bosons can be changed from positive to negative by the fermion-mediated term at a low enough temperature. The boson cloud may then collapse. For attractive fermion-boson interactions, there is also a… Expand
