Abstract

The Gross-Pitaevskii equations are generalized to finite temperatures by means of the self-consistent Hartree-Fock and Bogolyubov approximations that are derived through a variational principle for the optimal set of one-particle eigenstates. A number of sample density profiles are provided for spin-polarized atomic hydrogen when the external potential depends on the z coordinate only
