Location and phase segregation of ground and excited states for 2D Gross–Pitaevskii systems
Pages: 117 – 137
We consider a system of Gross–Pitaevskii equations in R² modelling a mixture of two Bose–Einstein condensates with repulsive interaction. We aim to study the qualitative behaviour of ground and excited state solutions. We allow two different harmonic and off-centered trapping potentials and study the spatial patterns of the solutions within the Thomas–Fermi approximation as well as phase segregation phenomena within the large-interaction regime.
