This thesis presents theoretical investigations on a range of topics in cold atom physics, primarily by means of wave mechanical simulations, implemented on High-Performance computers. Two particular concerns are the interaction of Bose-Einstein condensates with microfabricated surfaces, and the behaviour of strongly interacting Fermi atoms. In the course of this work. we have developed new theoretical models and computational techniques to handle problems which were beyond the scope of previous calculations.
