**Basics of Bose-Einstein Condensation**

by

**V.I. Yukalov**-

**arXiv**

The review is devoted to the elucidation of the basic problems arising in the theoretical investigation of systems with Bose-Einstein condensate. Understanding these problems is necessary for the correct description of Bose-condensed systems.
