The Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) of the ground state of bosonic atoms in a trap was discussed. The BEC was proved for bosons with two-body repulsive interaction potentials in the dilute limit, starting from the basic Schrodinger equation. The BEC was 100% into the state which minimized the Gross-Pitaevskii energy functional. The analysis also included rigorous proof of BEC in a physically realistic, continuum model.
