Abstract

In this chapter we deal with the important vorticity problem in a condensate. We first explain how quantum vortices can occur in a superfluid, and what is their expected structure. These vortices can spontaneously form in a rotating condensate, and they have tendency to nucleated and to form regular arrays, taking typically triangular lattice shapes. These vortex lattices can oscillate, as first discussed by Tkatchenko.
