This work is an up-to-date and partially improved analysis of the basics of the mathe- matical description of Bose-Einstein condensation in terms of first principles of Quantum Mechanics. The main aims are: 1) to provide a compact, yet coherent overview: - of the basic mathematical tools used to formalise Bose-Einstein condensation, - of the mathematical techniques for studying several features of this physical phenomenon, - and of how such means emerge as the natural ones in connection with their physical interpretation; 2) to discuss and to place in the above perspective some new contributions and improvements: - on equivalent characterizations of Bose-Einstein condensation, - on the strength of the convergence for some currently available asymptotic results, - and on the effects of interparticle correlations on the energy and the dynamics of the many-body condensate.
