Abstract

We consider a system of fermions in the continuum case at zero temperature, in the strongcoupling limit of a short-range attraction when composite bosons form as bound-fermion pairs. We examine the density dependence of the size of the composite bosons at leading order in the density (\dilute limit"), and show on general physical grounds that this size should decrease with increasing density, both in three and two dimensions. We then compare with the analytic zero-temperature mean-eld solution, which indeed exhibits the size shrinking of the composite bosons both in three and two dimensions. We argue, nonetheless, that the two-dimensional mean-eld solution is not consistent with our general result in the \dilute limit", to the extent that mean eld treats the scattering between composite bosons in the Born approximation which is known to break down at low energy in two dimensions.
