      We present the eigenmodal analysis techniques enhanced towards calculations of optical and Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) modes formed by random potentials and localized by Anderson effect. The results are compared with the published measurements and verified additionally by the convergence criterion. In 2-D BECs captured in circular areas, the randomness shows the edge localization of the high-order Tamm-modes. To avoid strong diffusive effect, which is typical for BECs captured by speckle potentials, the 3-D-lattice potential with increased step magnitudes is proposed by us, and the trapped BECs in these lattices are simulated and plotted.
