During the past year of theMCTDHB project at the HLRS, we continued to strive and conquest further applications, developments, and expansion of the MultiConfigurational Time-Dependent Hartree for Bosons (MCTDHB) method in the context of ultracold atomic systems.We also announce the MCTDH-X package, the Multiconfigurational Time-Dependent Hartree for Indistinguishable Particles X package, which is able to treat identical bosons and fermions, with or without spin/internal degrees of freedom, alike. Here we report on a plethora of results and versatile applications which include: (i) single-shot imaging of fluctuating vortices in a fragmented Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC); (ii) the many-body.
