A parameter-free smoothness indicator for high-resolution finite element schemes

Dmitri Kuzmin, Friedhelm Schieweck (2013)

Open Mathematics

This paper presents a postprocessing technique for estimating the local regularity of numerical solutions in high-resolution finite element schemes. A derivative of degree p ≥ 0 is considered to be smooth if a discontinuous linear reconstruction does not create new maxima or minima. The intended use of this criterion is the identification of smooth cells in the context of p-adaptation or selective flux limiting. As a model problem, we consider a 2D convection equation discretized with bilinear finite...

Analysis of an Asymptotic Preserving Scheme for Relaxation Systems

Francis Filbet, Amélie Rambaud (2013)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

We consider an asymptotic preserving numerical scheme initially proposed by F. Filbet and S. Jin [J. Comput. Phys. 229 (2010)] and G. Dimarco and L. Pareschi [SIAM J. Numer. Anal. 49 (2011) 2057–2077] in the context of nonlinear and stiff kinetic equations. Here, we propose a convergence analysis of such a scheme for the approximation of a system of transport equations with a nonlinear source term, for which the asymptotic limit is given by a conservation law. We investigate the convergence of the...

Harmonic averages, exact difference schemes and local Green’s functions in variable coefficient PDE problems

Owe Axelsson, János Karátson (2013)

Open Mathematics

A brief survey is given to show that harmonic averages enter in a natural way in the numerical solution of various variable coefficient problems, such as in elliptic and transport equations, also of singular perturbation types. Local Green’s functions used as test functions in the Petrov-Galerkin finite element method combined with harmonic averages can be very efficient and are related to exact difference schemes.

High order semi-lagrangian particle methods for transport equations: numerical analysis and implementation issues

G.-H. Cottet, J.-M. Etancelin, F. Perignon, C. Picard (2014)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

This paper is devoted to the definition, analysis and implementation of semi-Lagrangian methods as they result from particle methods combined with remeshing. We give a complete consistency analysis of these methods, based on the regularity and momentum properties of the remeshing kernels, and a stability analysis of a large class of second and fourth order methods. This analysis is supplemented by numerical illustrations. We also describe a general approach to implement these methods in the context...
