Abstract: In a recent paper (2019Phys. Rev. A99, 053617), the total number of fermion pairs in a spin-balanced two-component Fermi gas of(6)Li atoms was experimentally probed in the normal phase above the superfluid critical temperature, in order to investigate the sectors of pseudogap and preformed-pair in the temperature-coupling phase diagram. Here, we present a theoretical account of these experimental results in terms of anab initioself-consistentt-matrix calculation, which emphasizes the role of the pair-correlation function between opposite-spin fermions at equilibrium. Good agreement is found between the available experimental data and the theoretical results obtained with no adjustable parameter.
