  • An error estimate for an energy conserving spectral scheme approximating
           the dynamic elastica with free ends

      An energy conserving spectral scheme is presented for approximating the smooth solution of the dynamic elastica with free ends. The spatial discretization of the elastica is done on the basis of Galerkin spectral methods with a Legendre grid. It is established that the scheme has the unique solution and enjoys a spectral accuracy with respect to the size of the spatial grid. Moreover, some results of a numerical simulation are given to verify that the implemented scheme preserves the discrete energy.

  • A note on Hermite multiwavelets with polynomial and exponential vanishing
           moments

      The aim of the paper is to present Hermite-type multiwavelets, i.e. wavelets acting on vector data representing function values and consecutive derivatives, which satisfy the vanishing moment property with respect to elements in the space spanned by exponentials and polynomials. Such functions satisfy a two-scale relation which is level-dependent as well as the corresponding multiresolution analysis. An important feature of the associated filters is the possibility of factorizing their symbols in terms of the so-called cancellation operator. This is shown, in particular, in the situation where Hermite multiwavelets are obtained by completing interpolatory level-dependent Hermite subdivision operators, reproducing polynomial and exponential data, to biorthogonal systems. A few constructions of families of multiwavelet filters of this kind are proposed.

  • First order system least squares pseudo-spectral method for
           Stokes–Darcy equations

      The subject of this paper is to investigate the first order system least squares Legendre and Chebyshev pseudo-spectral methods for coupled Stokes–Darcy equations. By introducing strain tensor as a new variable, Stokes–Darcy equations recast into a system of first order differential equations. The least squares functional is defined by summing up the weighted L 2 -norm of residuals of the first order system for coupled Stokes–Darcy equations. To treat Beavers–Joseph–Saffman interface conditions, the weighted L 2 -norm of these conditions are also added to the least squares functional. Continuous and discrete homogeneous functionals are shown to be equivalent to the combination of weighted H ( div ) and H 1 -norm for Stokes–Darcy equations. The spectral convergence for the Legendre and Chebyshev methods are derived. To demonstrate this analysis, numerical experiments are also presented.

  • Error analysis of a compact finite difference method for fourth-order
           nonlinear elliptic boundary value problems
    • Authors: Yuan-Ming Wang
      Pages: 53 - 67
      Abstract: Publication date: October 2017

      Author(s): Yuan-Ming Wang
      This paper is concerned with a compact finite difference method with non-isotropic mesh sizes for a two-dimensional fourth-order nonlinear elliptic boundary value problem. By the discrete energy analysis, the optimal error estimates in the discrete L 2 , H 1 and L ∞ norms are obtained without any constraint on the mesh sizes. The error estimates show that the compact finite difference method converges with the convergence rate of fourth-order. Based on a high-order approximation of the solution, a Richardson extrapolation algorithm is developed to make the final computed solution sixth-order accurate. Numerical results demonstrate the high-order accuracy of the compact finite difference method and its extrapolation algorithm in the discrete L 2 , H 1 and L ∞ norms.

  • Optimal error estimate of a compact scheme for nonlinear Schrödinger
           equation

      It has been pointed out in literature that the symplectic scheme of a nonlinear Hamiltonian system can not preserve the total energy in the discrete sense Ge and Marsden (1988) [10]. Moreover, due to the difficulty in obtaining a priori estimate of the numerical solution, it is very hard to establish the optimal error bound of the symplectic scheme without any restrictions on the grid ratios. In this paper, we develop and analyze a compact scheme for solving nonlinear Schrödinger equation. We introduce a cut-off technique for proving optimal L ∞ error estimate for the compact scheme. We show that the convergence of the compact scheme is of second order in time and of fourth order in space. Meanwhile, we define a new type of energy functional by using a recursion relationship, and then prove that the compact scheme is mass and energy-conserved, symplectic-conserved, unconditionally stable and can be computed efficiently. Numerical experiments confirm well the theoretical analysis results.

  • A smoothing Newton method for absolute value equation associated with
           second-order cone

      In this paper, we consider the smoothing Newton method for solving a type of absolute value equations associated with second order cone (SOCAVE for short), which is a generalization of the standard absolute value equation frequently discussed in the literature during the past decade. Based on a class of smoothing functions, we reformulate the SOCAVE as a family of parameterized smooth equations, and propose the smoothing Newton algorithm to solve the problem iteratively. Moreover, the algorithm is proved to be locally quadratically convergent under suitable conditions. Preliminary numerical results demonstrate that the algorithm is effective. In addition, two kinds of numerical comparisons are presented which provides numerical evidence about why the smoothing Newton method is employed and also suggests a suitable smoothing function for future numerical implementations. Finally, we point out that although the main idea for proving the convergence is similar to the one used in the literature, the analysis is indeed more subtle and involves more techniques due to the feature of second-order cone.

      Two-step algorithms for the stationary incompressible Navier–Stokes equations with friction boundary conditions are considered in this paper. Our algorithms consist of solving one Navier–Stokes variational inequality problem used the linear equal-order finite element pair (i.e., P 1 – P 1 ) and then solving a linearization variational inequality problem used the quadratic equal-order finite element pair (i.e., P 2 – P 2 ). Moreover, the stability and convergence of our two-step algorithms are derived. Finally, numerical tests are presented to check theoretical results.

      In [22] we announced equations for yielding differential operators of transparent boundary conditions (TBCs) for a certain class of second order hyperbolic systems. Here we present the full derivation of these equations and consider ways of their solving. The solutions represent local parts of TBCs, and they can be used as approximate nonreflecting boundary conditions. We give examples of computing such conditions called ‘truncated TBCs’ for 3D elasticity and Biot poroelasticity

  • Second order approximations for kinetic and potential energies in

      In this paper we propose a numerical scheme for wave type equations with damping and space variable coefficients. Relevant equations of this kind arise for instance in the context of Maxwell's equations, namely, the electric potential equation and the electric field equation. The main motivation to study such class of equations is the crucial role played by the electric potential or the electric field in enhanced drug delivery applications. Our numerical method is based on piecewise linear finite element approximation and it can be regarded as a finite difference method based on non-uniform partitions of the spatial domain. We show that the proposed method leads to second order convergence, in time and space, for the kinetic and potential energies with respect to a discrete L 2 -norm.

  • A mixed finite element approximation for Darcy–Forchheimer flows of

      Author(s): Thinh Kieu
      In this paper, we consider the generalized Forchheimer flows for slightly compressible fluids in porous media. Using Muskat's and Ward's general form of Forchheimer equations, we describe the flow of a single-phase fluid in R d , d ≥ 2 by a nonlinear degenerate system of density and momentum. A mixed finite element method is proposed for the approximation of the solution of the above system. The stability of the approximations are proved; the error estimates are derived for the numerical approximations for both continuous and discrete time procedures. The continuous dependence of numerical solutions on physical parameters are demonstrated. Experimental studies are presented regarding convergence rates and showing the dependence of the solution on the physical parameters.

  • Single measurement experimental data for an inverse medium problem
           inverted by a multi-frequency globally convergent numerical method

      The recently developed globally convergent numerical method for an inverse medium problem with the data resulting from a single measurement, proposed in [23], is tested on experimental data. The data were originally collected in the time domain, whereas the method works in the frequency domain with the multi-frequency data. Due to a significant amount of noise in the measured data, a straightforward application of the Fourier transform to these data does not work. Hence, we develop a heuristic data preprocessing procedure, which is described in the paper. The preprocessed data are used as the input for the inversion algorithm. Numerical results demonstrate a good accuracy of the reconstruction of both refractive indices and locations of targets.

      In this article, we approximate the solution of the weakly singular Volterra integral equation of the second kind using the reproducing kernel Hilbert space (RKHS) method. This method does not require any background mesh and can easily be implemented. Since the solution of the second kind weakly singular Volterra integral equation has unbounded derivative at the left end point of the interval of the integral equation domain, RKHS method has poor convergence rate on the conventional uniform mesh. Consequently, the graded mesh is proposed. Using error analysis, we show the RKHS method has better convergence rate on the graded mesh than the uniform mesh. Numerical examples are given to confirm the error analysis results. Regularization of the solution is an alternative approach to improve the efficiency of the RKHS method. In this regard, an smooth transformation is used to regularization and obtained numerical results are compared with other methods.

      Neutral stochastic delay differential equations often appear in various fields of science and engineering. The aim of this article is to investigate the strong convergence of the split-step theta (SST) method for the neutral stochastic delay differential equations, where the corresponding coefficients may be highly nonlinear with respect to the delay variables. In particular, we reveal that the SST method with θ ∈ [ 0 , 1 ] strongly converges to the exact solution with the order 1 2 . Some numerical results are presented to confirm the obtained results.

      A one-dimensional singularly perturbed boundary value problem with two small perturbation parameters is numerically solved on an exponentially graded mesh. Using an h-version of the standard Galerkin method with higher order polynomials, we prove a robust convergence in the corresponding energy norm. Numerical experiments support theoretical findings.

      The unconditional convergence of finite element method for two-dimensional time-dependent viscoelastic flow with an Oldroyd B constitutive equation is given in this paper, while all previous works require certain time-step restrictions. The approximation is stabilized by using the Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) approximation for the constitutive equation. The analysis bases on a splitting of the error into two parts: the error from the time discretization of the PDEs and the error from the finite element approximation of corresponding iterated time-discrete PDEs. The approach used in this paper can be applied to more general couple nonlinear parabolic and hyperbolic systems.

      In this article, we proposed a new numerical method to obtain the approximation solution for the time variable fractional order mobile–immobile advection–dispersion model based on reproducing kernel theory and collocation method. The equation is obtained from the standard advection–dispersion equation (ADE) by adding the Coimbra's variable fractional derivative in time of order γ ( x , t ) ∈ [ 0 , 1 ] . In order to solve this kind of equation, we discuss and derive the ε-approximate solution in the form of series with easily computable terms in the bivariate spline space. At the same time, the stability and convergence of the approximation are investigated. Finally, numerical examples are provided to show the accuracy and effectiveness.

      In the current manuscript, we consider a fractional partial integro-differential equation that is called fractional evolution equation. The fractional evolution equation is based on the Riemann–Liouville fractional integral. The presented numerical algorithm is based on the following procedures: at first a difference scheme has been used to discrete the temporal direction and secondly the spectral element method is applied to discrete the spatial direction and finally these procedures are combined to obtain a full-discrete scheme. For the constructed numerical technique, we prove the unconditional stability and also obtain an error bound. We use the energy method to analysis the full-discrete scheme. We employ some test problems to show the high accuracy of the proposed technique. Also, we compare the obtained numerical results using the present method with the existing methods in the literature.

      This paper deals with the problem of accelerating convergence to equilibrium for the Navier–Stokes equation using time relaxation models. We show that the BDF2 based semidiscrete solution of the regularized scheme converges to the steady-state solution of the continuous Navier–Stokes equations, under appropriate conditions. The proof also shows that time relaxation model can be used to accelerate the convergence with the appropriate choice of the parameters. Numerical experiment is presented to illustrate the theory.

      The order reduction phenomenon for general linear methods (GLMs) for stiff differential equations is investigated. It turns out that, similarly as for standard Runge–Kutta methods, the effective order of convergence for a large class of GLMs applied to stiff differential systems, is equal to the stage order of the method. In particular, it is demonstrated that the global error ‖ e [ n ] ‖ of GLMs of order p and stage order q applied to the Prothero–Robinson test problem y ′ ( t ) = λ ( y ( t ) − φ ( t ) ) + φ ′ ( t ) , t ∈ [ t 0 , T ] , y ( t 0 ) = φ ( t 0 ) , is O ( h q ) + O ( h p ) as h → 0 and h λ → − ∞ . Moreover, for GLMs with Runge–Kutta stability which are A ( 0 ) -stable and for which the stability function R ( z ) of the underlying Runge–Kutta methods, (i.e., the corresponding RK methods which have the same absolute stability properties as the GLMs), is such that R ( ∞ ) ≠ 1 , the global error satisfies ‖ e [ n ] ‖ = O ( h q + 1 ) + O ( h p ) as h → 0 and h λ → − ∞ . These results are confirmed by numerical experiments.

      Based on quasi-interpolation, the paper proposes a meshless scheme for Hamiltonian PDEs with conservation properties. There are two key features of the proposed scheme. First, it is constructed from scattered sampling data. Second, it conserves energy for both linear and nonlinear Hamiltonian PDEs. Moreover, if the considered Hamiltonian PDEs additionally possess some other quadric invariants (i.e., the mass in the Schrödinger equation), then it can even preserve them. Error estimates (including the truncation error and the global error) of the scheme are also derived in the paper. To demonstrate the efficiency and superiority of the scheme, some numerical examples are provided at the end of the paper. Both theoretical and numerical results demonstrate that the scheme is simple, easy to compute, efficient and stable. More importantly, the scheme conserves the discrete energy and thus captures the long-time dynamics of Hamiltonian systems.

      The method of fundamental solutions (MFS) was first used by Kupradze in 1963 [21]. Since then, there have appeared numerous reports of the MFS. Most of the existing analysis for the MFS are confined to Dirichlet problems on disk domains. It seems to exist no analysis for Neumann problems. This paper is devoted to Neumann problems in non-disk domains, and the new stability analysis and the error analysis are made. The bounds for both condition numbers and errors are derived in detail. The optimal convergence rates in L 2 and H 1 norms in S are achieved, and the condition number grows exponentially as the number of fundamental functions increases. To reduce the huge condition numbers, the truncated singular value decomposition (TSVD) may be solicited. Numerical experiments are provided to support the analysis made. The analysis for Neumann problems in this paper is intriguing due to its distinct features.

      In this paper, we study fast Galerkin finite element methods to solve a space–time fractional diffusion equation. We develop an optimal piecewise-linear and piecewise-quadratic finite element methods for solving this problem and give optimal error estimates. Furthermore, we develop piecewise-constant discontinuous finite element method for discontinuous problem of this model. Importantly, a fast solution technique to accelerate non-square Toeplitz matrix–vector multiplications which arise from both continuous and discontinuous Galerkin finite element discretization respectively is considered. This fast solution technique is based on fast Fourier transform and depends on the special structure of coefficient matrices and it helps to reduce the computational work from O ( N 3 ) required by the traditional methods to O ( N log 2 ⁡ N ) , where N is the size (number of spatial grid points) of the coefficient matrices for every time step. Moreover, the applicability and accuracy of the method are demonstrated by numerical experiments to support our theoretical analysis.

      The nonlinear stability and convergence analyses are presented for a second order operator splitting scheme applied to the “good” Boussinesq equation, coupled with the Fourier pseudo-spectral approximation in space. Due to the wave equation nature of the model, we have to rewrite it as a system of two equations, for the original variable u and v = u t , respectively. In turn, the second order operator splitting method could be efficiently designed. A careful Taylor expansion indicates the second order truncation error of such a splitting approximation, and a linearized stability analysis for the numerical error function yields the desired convergence estimate in the energy norm. In more details, the convergence in the energy norm leads to an ℓ ∞ ( 0 , T ⁎ ; H 2 ) convergence for the numerical solution u and ℓ ∞ ( 0 , T ⁎ ; ℓ 2 ) convergence for v = u t . And also, the presented convergence is unconditional for the time step in terms of the spatial grid size, in comparison with a severe time step restriction, Δ t ≤ C h 2 , required in many existing works.

Thirdly, the convergence and stability of the nonlinear scheme are analyzed by means of discrete energy methods, while the convergence of the linear scheme is proved by cut-off function technique. Finally, numerical results are reported to verify our theoretical analysis for the numerical methods.

      This paper presents a second-order hybrid finite volume method for solving the Stokes equation on a two dimensional domain. The trial function space of the method for velocity is chosen to be a quadratic conforming finite element space with a hierarchical decomposition technique on triangular meshes, and its corresponding test function space consists of piecewise constant functions and piecewise quadratic polynomial functions based on a dual partition of the domain. The trial function space and test function space of the method for pressure are chosen to be a linear finite element space. We derive the inf-sup conditions of the discrete systems of the method on triangular meshes by using a relationship between the finite volume method and the finite element method. The well-posedness of the proposed finite volume method is obtained by using the Babuska–Lax–Milgram theorem. The error estimates of the optimal order are obtained in the H 1 -norm for velocity and in the L 2 -norm for pressure. Numerical experiments are presented to illustrate the theoretical results.

      This work presents a model reduction framework using a temporal localized basis approach to efficiently reduce the simulation time for nonlinear dynamical systems with rapid changes over a short time period, and proposes a corresponding a priori error bound. This framework employs the proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) to construct localized basis sets from different temporal subdomains, which can be used in the Galerkin projection to accurately capture the important local dynamics of the system. The discrete empirical interpolation method (DEIM) with the corresponding temporal localized basis sets is then applied to efficiently compute the projected nonlinear terms. A heuristic procedure for subdividing snapshots over the temporal domain is proposed. This procedure first partitions the set of snapshots where there are possible significant changes in system dynamics, and then uses the notion of distance between subspaces to later remove unnecessary partitioning. An a priori error bound is derived to confirm the convergence of this framework and to explain how the propagated errors from the localized reduced systems affect the overall accuracy. Numerical experiments demonstrate the accuracy improvement of the temporal localized framework through a parametrized nonlinear miscible flow simulation. The results show the applicability of the proposed approach to various parameter values that are not necessary used for generating the POD and DEIM localized basis sets.

      It is the purpose of this paper to construct an error estimation for highly stable two-step continuous methods derived in [7], in order to use it in a variable stepsize implementation. New families of two step almost collocation methods are constructed, by using a collocation technique which permits to increase the uniform order of one step collocation methods, without increasing the computational cost and by maintaining good stability properties, thus avoiding the order reduction phenomenon. Numerical experiments confirm the effectiveness of the proposed methods.

      Multiresolution techniques for (mesh-based) surface processing have been developed and successfully used in surface progressive transmission, compression and other applications. A triangular mesh allows 3 , dyadic and 7 refinements. The 3 -refinement is the most appealing one for multiresolution data processing since it has the slowest progression through scale and provides more resolution levels within a limited capacity. The 3 refinement has been used for surface subdivision and for discrete global grid systems. Recently lifting scheme-based biorthogonal bivariate wavelets with high symmetry have been constructed for surface multiresolution processing. If biorthogonal wavelets (with either dyadic or 3 refinement) have certain smoothness, they will have big supports. In other words, the corresponding multiscale algorithms have large templates; and this is undesirable for surface processing. On the other hand, frames provide a flexibility for the construction of system generators (called framelets) with high symmetry and smaller supports. In this paper we study highly symmetric 3 -refinement wavelet bi-frames for surface processing. We design the frame algorithms based on the vanishing moments and smoothness of the framelets. The frame algorithms obtained in this paper are given by templates so that one can easily implement them. We also present interpolatory 3 subdivision-based frame algorithms. In addition, we provide frame ternary multiresolution algorithms for boundary vertices on an open surface.

      It is known that spectral methods offer exponential convergence for infinitely smooth solutions. However, they are not applicable for problems presenting singularities or thin layers, especially true for the ones with the location of singularity unknown. An adaptive domain decomposition method (DDM) integrated with Chebyshev tau method based on the highest derivative (CTMHD) is introduced to solve singular perturbed boundary value problems (SPBVPs). The proposed adaptive algorithm uses the refinement indicators based on Chebyshev coefficients to determine which subintervals need to be refined. Numerical experiments have been conducted to demonstrate the superior performance of the method for SPBVPs with a number of singularities including boundary layers, interior layers and dense oscillations. A fourth order nonlinear SPBVP is also concerned. The numerical results illustrate the efficiency and applicability of our adaptive algorithm to capture the locations of singularities, and the higher accuracy in comparison with some existing numerical methods in the literature.

      We consider a variational formulation of the three dimensional Navier–Stokes equations provided with mixed boundary conditions. We write this formulation with three independent unknowns: the vorticity, the velocity and the pressure. Next, we propose a discretization by spectral methods.

      In this article we construct weak Runge–Kutta Munthe-Kaas methods for a finite-dimensional version of the stochastic Landau–Lifshitz equation (LL-equation). We formulate a Lie group framework for the stochastic LL-equation and derive regularity conditions for the corresponding SDE system on the Lie algebra. Using this formulation we define weak Munthe-Kaas methods based on weak stochastic Runge–Kutta methods (SRK methods) and provide sufficient conditions such that the Munthe-Kaas methods inherit the convergence order of the underlying SRK method. The constructed methods are fully explicit and preserve the norm constraint of the LL-equation exactly. Numerical simulations are provided to illustrate the convergence order as well as the long time behaviour of the proposed methods.

      In this paper, a thorough analysis is given for the order which is observed when integrating evolutionary linear partial differential equations with Lawson methods. The analysis is performed under the general framework of C0-semigroups in Banach spaces and hence it can be applied to the numerical time integration of many initial boundary value problems which are described by linear partial differential equations. Conditions of regularity and annihilation at the boundary of these problems are then stated to justify the precise order which is observed, including fractional order of convergence.

      An efficient two-level finite element algorithm for solving the natural convection equations is developed and studied in this paper. By solving one small nonlinear system on a coarse mesh H and two large linearized problems on a fine mesh h = O ( H 7 − ε 2 ) with different loads, we can obtain an approximation solution ( u h , p h , T h ) with the convergence rate of same order as the usual finite element solution, which involves one large nonlinear natural convection system on the same fine mesh h. Furthermore, compared with the results of Si's algorithm in 2011, the given algorithm costs less computed time to get almost the same precision.

      Standard numerical methods often fail to solve the Helmholtz equation accurately near reentrant corners, since the solution may become singular. The singularity has an inhomogeneous contribution from the boundary data near the corner and a homogeneous contribution that is determined by boundary conditions far from the corner. We present a regularization algorithm that uses a combination of analytical and numerical tools to distinguish between these two contributions and ultimately subtract the singularity. We then employ the method of difference potentials to numerically solve the regularized problem with high-order accuracy over a domain with a curvilinear boundary. Our numerical experiments show that the regularization successfully restores the design rate of convergence.

      In this paper, we are concerned with the numerical solution of the nonlinear fractional Ginzburg–Landau equation. Galerkin finite element method is used for the spatial discretization, and an implicit midpoint difference method is employed for the temporal discretization. The boundedness, existence and uniqueness of the numerical solution, and the unconditional error estimates in the L 2 -norm are investigated in details. To numerically solve the nonlinear system, linearized iterative algorithms are also considered. Finally, some numerical examples are presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the algorithm.

      Homotopy continuation, in combination with a quasi-Newton method, can be an efficient and robust technique for solving large sparse systems of nonlinear equations. The homotopy itself is pivotal in determining the efficiency and robustness of the continuation algorithm. As the homotopy is defined implicitly by a nonlinear system of equations to which the analytical solution is by assumption unknown, many properties of the homotopy can only be studied using numerical methods. The properties of a given homotopy which have the greatest impact on the corresponding continuation algorithm are traceability and linear solver performance. Metrics are presented for the analysis and characterization of these properties. Several homotopies are presented and studied using these metrics in the context of a parallel implicit three-dimensional Newton–Krylov–Schur flow solver for computational fluid dynamics. Several geometries, grids, and flow types are investigated in the study. Additional studies include the impact of grid refinement and the application of a coordinate transformation to the homotopy as measured through the traceability and linear solver performance metrics.

      In this paper, we develop a priori estimates for the convergence of outputs, output error estimates, and localizations of output error estimates for Galerkin finite element methods. Output error estimates for order p finite element solutions are constructed using the Dual-Weighted Residual (DWR) method with a higher-order p ′ > p dual solution. Specifically, we analyze these DWR estimates for Continuous Galerkin (CG), Discontinuous Galerkin (DG), and Hybridized DG (HDG) methods applied to the Poisson problem. For all discretizations, as h → 0 , we prove that the output and output error estimate converge at order 2p and 2 p ′ (assuming sufficient smoothness), while localizations of the output and output error estimate converge at 2 p + d and p + p ′ + d . For DG, the results use a new post processing for the error associated with the lifting operator. For HDG, these rates improve an additional order when the stabilization is based upon an O ( 1 ) length scale.

      In this paper, fractional backward differential formulas (FBDF) are presented for the numerical solution of fractional delay differential equations (FDDEs) of the form λ n 0 C D t α n y ( t ) + λ n − 1 0 C D t α n − 1 y ( t ) + ⋯ + λ 1 0 C D t α 1 y ( t ) + λ n + 1 y ( t − τ ) = f ( t ) , t ∈ [ 0 , T ] , where λ i ∈ R ( i = 1 , ⋯ , n + 1 ) , λ n + 1 ≠ 0 , 0 ⩽ α 1 < α 2 < ⋯ < α n < 1 , T > 0 , in Caputo sense. Our investigation is focused on stability properties of the numerical methods and we determine stability regions for the FDDEs. Also we find the Green's functions for this equation corresponding to periodic/anti-periodic conditions in terms of the functions of Mittag Leffler type. Numerical tests are presented to confirm the strength of the approach under investigation.

      Differential equations with both stiff and nonstiff parts can be solved efficiently by implicit–explicit (IMEX) methods. There have been considered various approaches in the literature. In this paper we introduce IMEX peer methods. We show that the combination of s-stage explicit and implicit peer methods, both of order p, gives an IMEX peer method of the same order. We construct methods of order p = s for s = 3 , 4 , where we compute the free parameters numerically to give good stability with respect to fast-wave–slow-wave problems from weather prediction. We implement these methods with and without step size control. Tests and comparisons with other methods for problems mostly from weather prediction show the high potential of IMEX peer methods.

      The group finite element formulation is a strategy aimed at speeding the assembly of finite element matrices for time-dependent problems. This process modifies the Galerkin matrix of the problem in a non-consistent way. This may cause a deterioration of both the stability and convergence of the method. In this paper we prove results for a group finite element formulation of a convection–diffusion–reaction equation showing that the stability of the original discrete problem remains unchanged under appropriate conditions on the data of the problem and on the discretization parameters. A violation of these conditions may lead to non-existence of solutions, as one of our main results shows. An analysis of the consistency error introduced by the group finite element formulation and its skew-symmetric variant is given.

      The delay Cox–Ingersoll–Ross (CIR) model is an important model in the financial markets. It has been proved that the solution of this model is non-negative and its pth moments are bounded. However, there is no explicit solution for this model. So, proposing appropriate numerical method for solving this model which preserves non-negativity and boundedness of the model's solution is very important. In this paper, we concentrate on the balanced implicit method (BIM) for this model and show that with choosing suitable control functions the BIM provides numerical solution that preserves non-negativity of solution of the model. Moreover, we show the pth moment boundedness of the numerical solution of the method and prove the convergence of the proposed numerical method. Finally, we present some numerical examples to confirm the theoretical results, and also application of BIM to compute some financial quantities.

      A numerical method for fractional order differential equations (FDEs) and constant or time-varying delayed fractional differential equations (FDDEs) is constructed. This method is of BDF-type which is based on the interval approximation of the true solution by truncated shifted Chebyshev series. This approach can be reformulated in an equivalent way as a Runge–Kutta method and its Butcher tableau is given. A detailed local and global truncating errors analysis is deduced for the numerical solutions of FDEs and FDDEs. Illustrative examples are included to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the proposed approach.

  • Quadrature rules and asymptotic expansions for two classes of oscillatory
           Bessel integrals with singularities of algebraic or logarithmic type

      Author(s): Hongchao Kang, Junjie Ma
      In this paper we mainly focus on the quadrature rules and asymptotic expansions for two classes of highly oscillatory Bessel integrals with algebraic or logarithmic singularities. Firstly, by two transformations, we transfer them into the standard types on [ − 1 , 1 ] , and derive two useful asymptotic expansions in inverse powers of the frequency ω. Then, based on the two asymptotic expansions, two methods are presented, respectively. One is the so-called Filon-type method. The other is the more efficient Clenshaw-Curtis–Filon-type method, which can be implemented in O ( N log ⁡ N ) operations, based on Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and fast computation of the modified moments. Here, through large amount of calculation and analysis, we can construct two important recurrence relations for computing the modified moments accurately, based on the Bessel's equation and some properties of the Chebyshev polynomials. In particular, we also provide error analysis for these methods in inverse powers of the frequency ω. Furthermore, we prove directly from the presented error bounds that these methods share the advantageous property, that the larger the values of the frequency ω, the higher the accuracy. The efficiency and accuracy of the proposed methods are illustrated by numerical examples.

  • A numerical method for the solution of exterior Neumann problems for the

      Abstract: Publication date: September 2017

      Author(s): C. Laurita
      In this paper we propose a new boundary integral method for the numerical solution of Neumann problems for the Laplace equation, posed in exterior planar domains with piecewise smooth boundaries. Using the single layer representation of the potential, the differential problem is reformulated as a classical boundary integral equation. The use of a smoothing transformation and the introduction of a modified Gauss–Legendre quadrature formula for the approximation of the singular integrals, which turns out to be convergent, leads us to apply a Nyström type method for the numerical solution of the integral equation. We solve some test problems and present the numerical results in order to show the efficiency of the proposed procedure.
