We consider a gas of neutral fermionic atoms at ultra-low temperatures, with
the attractive interaction tuned to Feshbach resonance. We calculate, the
variation of the chemical potential and the energy per particle as a function
of temperature by assuming the system to be an ideal gas obeying the Haldane-Wu
fractional exclusion statistics. Our results for the untrapped gas compare
favourably with the recently published Monte Carlo calculations of two groups.
For a harmonically trapped gas, the results agree with experiment, and also
with other published work.
