A linear scheme to approximate nonlinear cross-diffusion systems*

Hideki Murakawa (2011)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

This paper proposes a linear discrete-time scheme for general nonlinear cross-diffusion systems. The scheme can be regarded as an extension of a linear scheme based on the nonlinear Chernoff formula for the degenerate parabolic equations, which proposed by Berger et al. [RAIRO Anal. Numer.13 (1979) 297–312]. We analyze stability and convergence of the linear scheme. To this end, we apply the theory of reaction-diffusion system approximation. After discretizing the scheme in space, we obtain a versatile,...

A model of macroscale deformation and microvibration in skeletal muscle tissue

Bernd Simeon, Radu Serban, Linda R. Petzold (2009)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

This paper deals with modeling the passive behavior of skeletal muscle tissue including certain microvibrations at the cell level. Our approach combines a continuum mechanics model with large deformation and incompressibility at the macroscale with chains of coupled nonlinear oscillators. The model verifies that an externally applied vibration at the appropriate frequency is able to synchronize microvibrations in skeletal muscle cells. From the numerical analysis point of view, one faces...

A new error estimate for a fully finite element discretization scheme for parabolic equations using Crank-Nicolson method

Abdallah Bradji, Jürgen Fuhrmann (2014)

Mathematica Bohemica

Finite element methods with piecewise polynomial spaces in space for solving the nonstationary heat equation, as a model for parabolic equations are considered. The discretization in time is performed using the Crank-Nicolson method. A new a priori estimate is proved. Thanks to this new a priori estimate, a new error estimate in the discrete norm of 𝒲 1 , ( 2 ) is proved. An ( 1 ) -error estimate is also shown. These error estimates are useful since they allow us to get second order time accurate approximations...

A posteriori error estimation and adaptivity in the method of lines with mixed finite elements

Jan Brandts (1999)

Applications of Mathematics

We will investigate the possibility to use superconvergence results for the mixed finite element discretizations of some time-dependent partial differential equations in the construction of a posteriori error estimators. Since essentially the same approach can be followed in two space dimensions, we will, for simplicity, consider a model problem in one space dimension.

Adaptive finite element relaxation schemes for hyperbolic conservation laws

Christos Arvanitis, Theodoros Katsaounis, Charalambos Makridakis (2001)

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

We propose and study semidiscrete and fully discrete finite element schemes based on appropriate relaxation models for systems of Hyperbolic Conservation Laws. These schemes are using piecewise polynomials of arbitrary degree and their consistency error is of high order. The methods are combined with an adaptive strategy that yields fine mesh in shock regions and coarser mesh in the smooth parts of the solution. The computational performance of these methods is demonstrated by considering scalar...

An extension of Rothe's method to non-cylindrical domains

Komil Kuliev, Lars-Erik Persson (2007)

Applications of Mathematics

In this paper Rothe’s classical method is extended so that it can be used to solve some linear parabolic boundary value problems in non-cylindrical domains. The corresponding existence and uniqueness theorems are proved and some further results and generalizations are discussed and applied.

An IMEX scheme for reaction-diffusion equations: application for a PEM fuel cell model

István Faragó, Ferenc Izsák, Tamás Szabó, Ákos Kriston (2013)

Open Mathematics

An implicit-explicit (IMEX) method is developed for the numerical solution of reaction-diffusion equations with pure Neumann boundary conditions. The corresponding method of lines scheme with finite differences is analyzed: explicit conditions are given for its convergence in the ‖·‖∞ norm. The results are applied to a model for determining the overpotential in a proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell.

An implicit scheme to solve a system of ODEs arising from the space discretization of nonlinear diffusion equations

Éric Boillat (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

In this article, we consider the initial value problem which is obtained after a space discretization (with space step h) of the equations governing the solidification process of a multicomponent alloy. We propose a numerical scheme to solve numerically this initial value problem. We prove an error estimate which is not affected by the step size h chosen in the space discretization. Consequently, our scheme provides global convergence without any stability condition between h and the time...

Analysis of approximate solutions of coupled dynamical thermoelasticity and related problems

Jozef Kačur, Alexander Ženíšek (1986)

Aplikace matematiky

The authors study problems of existence and uniqueness of solutions of various variational formulations of the coupled problem of dynamical thermoelasticity and of the convergence of approximate solutions of these problems. First, the semidiscrete approximate solutions is defined, which is obtained by time discretization of the original variational problem by Euler’s backward formula. Under certain smoothness assumptions on the date authors prove existence and uniqueness of the solution and establish...
