Abstract
The dynamics of free and optically induced decay of quasi-one-dimensional atomic Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) is considered. The main characteristics of BEC modulation instability were found and compared for the cases of local and non-local interatomic interaction potential. The dynamics of BEC decay was studied numerically for the cases of positive and negative scattering length, absence or presence of optical standing wave, and for different shapes of initial BEC density distribution.
