On the basis of the grand canonical Gibbs distribution, using the virial theorem and the equations of motion for Green’s functions, it is shown that the thermodynamic functions of a one-component quantum gas are uniquely determined by the two-particle Green’s function outside the framework of perturbation theory. A thermodynamic self-consistency condition is formulated that makes it possible to select approximate expressions for the two-particle Green’s function.

Key words: quantum gases, statistical thermodynamics, virial theorem, temperature Green’s functions.
