The Boltzmann-Nordheim equation rules the dynamics of rarefied bosonic gases from a mesoscopic viewpoint. One of its main interest is that it encodes the process leading to the creation of the Bose-Einstein condensat. In this talk I introduce some basics of kinetic theory with a particular focus on the Boltzmann equation, to which the Boltzmann-Nordheim equation is a quantic version. I formally discuss the creation of the Bose-Einstein condensate and present the recent results on existence and uniqueness in the spatially homogeneous case.
