  • Abstract

In this paper, we propose an efficient and accurate method to compute the ground state of 2D/3D rotating dipolar BEC by incorporating the Kernel Truncation Method (KTM) for Dipole-Dipole Interaction (DDI) evaluation into the newly-developed Preconditioned Conjugate Gradient (PCG) method [9]. Adaptation details of KTM and PCG, including multidimensional discrete convolution acceleration for KTM, choice of the preconditioners in PCG, are provided. The performance of our method is con- firmed with extensive numerical tests, with emphasis on spectral accuracy of KTM and efficiency of ground state computation with PCG. Application of our method shows some interesting vortex lattice patterns in 2D and 3D respectively.
