%X If phase coherence determines the superconducting transition temperature Tc in the cuprate oxides, it is of great interest to understand the role that dynamics of the phase fluctuation plays in bringing about depletion of the superconducting condensate. We will show that a phase correlation function can be calculated that allows us to describe depletion of superconducting condensate as a result of the quantum fluctuation. In two dimension, dynamic phase fluctuation or pair fluctuation gives rise to a condensate depletion linear with temperature as T$\to O$ in superconductors with nodes at the fermi surface.
