    Abstract

    The Gross-Pitaevskii approximation is a long-wavelength theory widely used to describe a variety of properties of dilute Bose condensates, in particular trapped alkali gases. We point out that for short-ranged repulsive interactions this theory fails in dimensions d=2, and we propose the appropriate low-dimensional modifications, which have a universal form. For d=1 we analyze density profiles in confining potentials, superfluid properties, solitons, and self-similar solutions.
