26.This definition is taken from Ref. 10. Many authors, including Efimov (Ref. 1), define .
28.In the interatomic problem, the two-body interaction in the relative coordinate is of the van der Waals type, with a tail that falls off as . If we write this part as , it is customary to define the range parameter , where is the reduced mass. See, for example, C. Pethick and H. Smith, Bose-Einstein Condensation of Dilute Gases (Cambridge U. P., Cambridge, 2001).
