Talk abstract: The last decade has seen great progress in experiments conducted with weakly-interacting quantum gases, including a detailed characterisation of their temperature dependence and non-equilibrium behaviour. Despite their weak interactions, theoretical challenges remain on how to best model some of these experiments. In this talk I will describe two commonly implemented state-of-the-art schemes for dealing with such issues that can handle both the problem of the non-equilibrium thermal cloud, and the existence of phase fluctuations within the 'condensate', and discuss their respective limitations and implications for other experiments.
