A convergence analysis of time-splitting pseudo-spectral methods adapted for time-dependent Gross–Pitaevskii equations with additional rotation term is given. For the time integration high-order exponential operator splitting methods are studied, and the space discretization relies on the generalized-Laguerre–Fourier spectral method with respect to the \((x,y)\)-variables as well as the Hermite spectral method in the \(z\)-direction. Essential ingredients in the stability and error analysis are a general functional analytic framework of abstract nonlinear evolution equations, fractional power spaces defined by the principal linear part, a Sobolev-type inequality in a curved rectangle, and results on the asymptotical distribution of the nodes and weights associated with Gauß–Laguerre quadrature. The obtained global error estimate ensures that the nonstiff convergence order of the time integrator and the spectral accuracy of the spatial discretization are retained, provided that the problem data satisfy suitable regularity requirements. A numerical example confirms the theoretical convergence estimate.
