We investigate spectral stability of vortex solutions of the Gross-Pitaevskii equation, a mean-field approximation for Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC) in an effectively two-dimensional axisymmetric harmonic trap. We study eigenvalues of the linearization both rigorously and through computation of the Evans function, a sensitive and robust technique whose use we justify mathematically. Computational effort is significantly reduced through use of the Krein signature of purely imaginary… CONTINUE READING
