@article{Vidanovic2011NonlinearBD, title={Nonlinear Bose-Einstein-condensate dynamics induced by a harmonic modulation of the s-wave scattering length}, author={Ivana Vidanovic and Antun Balaz and Hamid Al-Jibbouri and Axel Pelster}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={2011}, volume={84}, pages={013618} }

In a recent experiment, a Bose-Einstein condensate of {sup 7}Li has been excited by a harmonic modulation of the atomic s-wave scattering length via Feshbach resonance. By combining an analytical perturbative approach with extensive numerical simulations, we analyze the emerging nonlinear dynamics of the system on the mean-field Gross-Pitaevskii level at zero temperature. Resulting excitation spectra are presented and prominent nonlinear features are found: mode coupling, higher harmonics… Expand
