AbstractWe investigate the behavior of solutions of the complex Gross–Pitaevskii equation, a model that describes the dynamics of pumped decaying Bose–Einstein condensates. The stationary radially symmetric solutions of the equation are studied, and their linear stability with respect to two-dimensional perturbations is analyzed. Using numerical continuation, we calculate not only the ground state of the system, but also a number of excited states. Accurate numerical integration is employed to study the general nonlinear evolution of the system from the unstable stationary solutions to the formation of stable vortex patterns.
