We consider the dynamics of a dark soliton in an elongated harmonically trapped Bose-Einstein condensate. A central question concerns the behavior at finite temperatures, where dissipation arises due to the presence of a thermal cloud. We study this problem using coupled Gross-Pitaevskii and N-body simulations, which include the mean field coupling between the condensate and thermal cloud. We find that the soliton decays relatively quickly even at very low temperatures, with the decay rate increasing with rising temperature. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2007.
