OCTBEC is a Matlab toolbox designed for optimal quantum control, within
the framework of optimal control theory (OCT), of Bose-Einstein
condensates (BEC). The systems we have in mind are ultracold atoms
in confined geometries, where the dynamics takes place in one or two
spatial dimensions, and the confinement potential can be controlled by
some external parameters. Typical experimental realizations are
atom chips, where the currents running through the wires produce
magnetic fields that allow to trap and manipulate nearby
atoms. The toolbox provides a variety of Matlab classes for
simulations based on the Gross-Pitaevskii equation, the
multi-configurational Hartree method for bosons, and on generic
few-mode models, as well as optimization problems. These classes
can be easily combined, which has the advantage that one can adapt the
simulation programs flexibly for various applications.
