Abstract Inhomogeneous boson systems, such as the dilute gases of integral spin atoms in low-temperature magnetic traps, are believed to be well described by the Gross–Pitaevskii equation (GPE). GPE is a nonlinear Schrödinger equation which describes the order parameter of such systems at the mean field level. In the present work, we describe a Fortran 90 computer program developed by us, which solves the GPE using a basis set expansion technique. In this technique, the condensate wave function (order... Title of program: bose.x Catalogue Id: ADWZ_v1_0 Nature of problem It is widely believed that the static properties of dilute Bose condensates, as obtained in atomic traps, can be described to a fairly good accuracy by the time-independent Gross-Pitaevskii equation. This program presents an efficient approach to solving this equation.
