The Gross-Pitaevskii equation, also called the nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLSE), describes the dynamics of low-temperature superflows and Bose-Einstein Condensates (BEC). We review some of our recent NLSE-based numerical studies of superfluid turbulence and BEC stability. The relations with experiments are discussed.
