We study the multiplicity of positive solutions for the two coupled nonlinear Schrödinger equations in bounded domains in this paper. By using Nehari manifold and Lusternik-Schnirelmann category, we prove the existence of multiple positive solutions for two coupled nonlinear Schrödinger equations in bounded domains. We also propose a numerical scheme that leads to various new numerical predictions regarding the solution characteristics.
