Local absorbing boundary conditions (LABCs) for nonlinear Schrodinger equations have been constructed in papers [PRE 78(2008) 026709; and PRE 79 (2009) 046711] using the so-called unified approach. In this paper, we present stability analysis for the reduced problem with LABCs on the bounded computational domain by the energy estimate, and discuss a class of modified versions of LABCs. To prove the stability analysis of the reduced problem, we turn to the technique of some auxiliary variables which reduces the higher-order derivatives in LABCs into a family of equations with lower-order derivatives. Furthermore, we extend the strategy to the stability analysis of two-dimensional problems by carefully dealing with the LABCs at corners. Numerical examples are given to demonstrate the effectiveness of our boundary conditions and validate the theoretical analysis.
