We study two-body correlations for N identical bosons by use of the hyperspherical adiabatic-expansion method. We use the zero-range interaction and derive a transcendental equation determining the key ingredient of the hyperradial potential. The necessary renormalization is for both repulsive and attractive interactions achieved with an effective range expansion of the two-body phase shifts. Our solutions including correlations provide the properties of Bose-Einstein condensates exemplified by stability conditions as established by mean-field Gross-Pitaevskii calculations. The many-body Efimov states are unavoidable for large scattering lengths.
