An approach to Bose-Einstein condensation was investigated by increasing the particle number of the system at constant temperature. The system under investigation was based on a F=1 spinor condensate of 87Rb with three internal states of mF=-1,0,+1. The main aim was to increase the particle number in the initially unpopulated MF=0 spin component through spin dynamics transfer out of the other components. A simple rate-equation model for multicomponent Bose-Einstein condensate thermodynamics at finite temperature was also developed.
