Abstract

We investigate theoretically the collective excitations of trapped Bose condensates with energies of the order of the chemical potential of the system. For the MIT sodium Bose condensate in a Cloverleaf trap, we find interesting level crossing behavior for high energy excitations and calculate the spatial magnetic dipole moments for selective creation of condensate excitations.
