Abstract: In this paper, we present the theoretical as well as experimental results on resonantly enhanced tunneling of Bose-Einstein condensates in optical lattices both in the linear case and for small nonlinearities. Our results demonstrate the usefulness of condensates in optical lattices for simulating Hamiltonians originally used for describing solid-state phenomena.
