    The boundary integral equation (BIE) of displacement derivatives is put at a disadvantage for the difficulty involved in the evaluation of the hypersingular integrals. In this paper, the operators δij and εij are used to act on the derivative BIE. The boundary displacements, tractions and displacement derivatives are transformed into a set of new boundary tensors as boundary variables. A new BIE formulation termed natural boundary integral equation (NBIE) is obtained. The NBIE is applied to solving two-dimensional elasticity problems. In the NBIE only the strongly singular integrals are contained. The Cauchy principal value integrals occurring in the NBIE are evaluated. A combination of the NBIE and displacement BIE can be used to directly calculate the boundary stresses. The numerical results of several examples demonstrate the accuracy of the NBIE.

    2007-01-01

    When the source nodes are on the global boundary in the implementation of local boundary integral equation method (LBIEM), singularities in the local boundary integrals need to be treated specially. In the current paper, local integral equations are adopted for the nodes inside the domain and moving least square approximation (MLSA)for the nodes on the global boundary, thus singularities will not occur in the new algorithm. At the same time, approximation errors of boundary integrals are reduced significantly. As applications and numerical tests, Laplace equation and Helmholtz equation problems are considered and excellent numerical results are obtained. Furthermore,when solving the Helmholtz problems, the modified basis functions with wave solutions areadapted to replace the usually-used monomial basis functions. Numerical results show that this treatment is simple and effective and its application is promising in solutions for the wave propagation problem with high wave number.

    2005-01-01

    Adaptive methods have been rapidly developed and applied in many fields of scientific and engineering computing. Reliable and efficient a posteriori error estimates play key roles for both adaptive finite element and boundary element methods. The aim of this paper is to develop a posteriori error estimates for boundary element methods. The standard a posteriori error estimates for boundary element methods are obtained from the classical boundary integral equations. This paper presents hyper-singular a posteriori error estimates based on the hyper-singular integral equations. Three kinds of residuals are used as the estimates for boundary element errors. The theoretical analysis and numerical examples show that the hyper-singular residuals are good a posteriori error indicators in many adaptive boundary element computations.

    2006-01-01

    The universal practices have been centralizing on the research of regularization to the direct boundary integal equations (DBIEs). The character is elimination of singularities by using the simple solutions. However, up to now the research of regularization to the first kind integral equations for plane potential problems has never been found in previous literatures. The presentation is mainly devoted to the research on the regularization of the singular boundaryintegral equations with indirect unknowns. A novel view and idea is presented herein, in which the regularized boundary integral equations with indirect unknowns without including the Cauchy principal value (CPV) and Hadamard-finite-part (HFP) integrals are established for the plane potential problems.With some numerical results, it is shown that the better accuracy and higher efficiency,especially on the boundary, can be achieved by the present system.

    Sun, Qiang; Klaseboer, Evert; Khoo, Boo-Cheong; Chan, Derek Y C

    2015-01-01

    A boundary integral formulation for the solution of the Helmholtz equation is developed in which all traditional singular behaviour in the boundary integrals is removed analytically. The numerical precision of this approach is illustrated with calculation of the pressure field owing to radiating bodies in acoustic wave problems. This method facilitates the use of higher order surface elements to represent boundaries, resulting in a significant reduction in the problem size with improved precision. Problems with extreme geometric aspect ratios can also be handled without diminished precision. When combined with the CHIEF method, uniqueness of the solution of the exterior acoustic problem is assured without the need to solve hypersingular integrals.

  10. A spectral boundary integral equation method for the 2-D Helmholtz equation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hu, Fang Q.

    1994-01-01

    In this paper, we present a new numerical formulation of solving the boundary integral equations reformulated from the Helmholtz equation. The boundaries of the problems are assumed to be smooth closed contours. The solution on the boundary is treated as a periodic function, which is in turn approximated by a truncated Fourier series. A Fourier collocation method is followed in which the boundary integral equation is transformed into a system of algebraic equations. It is shown that in order to achieve spectral accuracy for the numerical formulation, the nonsmoothness of the integral kernels, associated with the Helmholtz equation, must be carefully removed. The emphasis of the paper is on investigating the essential elements of removing the nonsmoothness of the integral kernels in the spectral implementation. The present method is robust for a general boundary contour. Aspects of efficient implementation of the method using FFT are also discussed. A numerical example of wave scattering is given in which the exponential accuracy of the present numerical method is demonstrated.

    The exact form of the exterior problem for plane elasticity problems was produced and fully proved by the variational principle. Based on this, the equivalent boundary integral equations (EBIE) with direct variables, which are equivalent to the original boundary value problem, were deduced rigorously. The conventionally prevailing boundary integral equation with direct variables was discussed thoroughly by some examples and it is shown that the previous results are not EBIE.

  15. Numerical quadrature for the approximation of singular oscillating integrals appearing in boundary integral equations

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    L. O. Fichte

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available Boundary Integral Equation formulations can be used to describe electromagnetic shielding problems. Yet, this approach frequently leads to integrals which contain a singularity and an oscillating part. Those integrals are difficult to handle when integrated naivly using standard integration techniques, and in some cases even a very high number of integration nodes will not lead to precise results. We present a method for the numerical quadrature of an integral with a logarithmic singularity and a cosine oscillator: a modified Filon-Lobatto quadrature for the oscillating parts and an integral transformation based on the error function for the singularity. Since this integral can be solved analytically, we are in a position to verify the results of our investigations, with a focus on precision and computation time.

  16. RESTRICTED NONLINEAR APPROXIMATION AND SINGULAR SOLUTIONS OF BOUNDARY INTEGRAL EQUATIONS

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2002-01-01

    This paper studies several problems, which are potentially relevant for the construction of adaptive numerical schemes. First, biorthogonal spline wavelets on [0,1 ] are chosen as a starting point for characterizations of functions in Besov spaces B , (0,1) with 0<σ<∞ and (1+σ)-1<τ<∞. Such function spaces are known to be related to nonlinear approximation. Then so called restricted nonlinear approximation procedures with respect to Sobolev space norms are considered. Besides characterization results Jackson type estimates for various tree-type and tresholding algorithms are investigated. Finally known approximation results for geometry induced singularity functions of boundary integeral equations are combined with the characterization results for restricted nonlinear approximation to show Besov space regularity results.

The method employed by the integral equation approach specifically includes the boundary conditions, which confers a valuable advantage. In addition, the integral equation approach leads naturally to the solution of the problem--under suitable conditions--in the form of an infinite series.Geared toward upper-level undergraduate students, this text focuses chiefly upon linear integral equations.

    The nonlinear boundary integral equations that arise in research of nonlinear magnetostatic problems are investigated in combined formulation on an unbounded domain. Approximations of the derived operator equations are studied based on the Galerkin method. The investigated boundary operators are strongly monotone, Lipschitz-continuous, potential and have a symmetrical Gateaux derivative. The error estimates of the Galerkin's approximation in Sobolev spaces of fractional powers are obtained using the above-mentioned properties of the operators, too. The problem has been studied on surfaces in two and three-dimensional spaces. We answer also some questions on convergence connected with the discretized systems of equations. 21 refs.

  1. Perfectly-matched-layer boundary integral equation method for wave scattering in a layered medium

    CERN Document Server

    Lu, Wangtao; Qian, Jianliang

    2016-01-01

    For scattering problems of time-harmonic waves, the boundary integral equation (BIE) methods are highly competitive, since they are formulated on lower-dimension boundaries or interfaces, and can automatically satisfy outgoing radiation conditions. For scattering problems in a layered medium, standard BIE methods based on the Green's function of the background medium must evaluate the expensive Sommefeld integrals. Alternative BIE methods based on the free-space Green's function give rise to integral equations on unbounded interfaces which are not easy to truncate, since the wave fields on these interfaces decay very slowly. We develop a BIE method based on the perfectly matched layer (PML) technique. The PMLs are widely used to suppress outgoing waves in numerical methods that directly discretize the physical space. Our PML-based BIE method uses the Green's function of the PML-transformed free space to define the boundary integral operators. The method is efficient, since the Green's function of the PML-tran...

  2. Retarded potentials and time domain boundary integral equations a road map

    2016-01-01

    This book offers a thorough and self-contained exposition of the mathematics of time-domain boundary integral equations associated to the wave equation, including applications to scattering of acoustic and elastic waves. The book offers two different approaches for the analysis of these integral equations, including a systematic treatment of their numerical discretization using Galerkin (Boundary Element) methods in the space variables and Convolution Quadrature in the time variable. The first approach follows classical work started in the late eighties, based on Laplace transforms estimates. This approach has been refined and made more accessible by tailoring the necessary mathematical tools, avoiding an excess of generality. A second approach contains a novel point of view that the author and some of his collaborators have been developing in recent years, using the semigroup theory of evolution equations to obtain improved results. The extension to electromagnetic waves is explained in one of the appendices...

    We study various preconditioning techniques for the iterative solution of boundary integral equations, and aim to provide a theory for a class of sparse preconditioners. Two related ideas are explored here: singularity separation and inverse approximation. Our preliminary conclusion is that singularity separation based preconditioners perform better than approximate inverse based while it is desirable to have both features.

  6. Approximate Formulation and Numerical Solution for Hypersingular Boundary Integral Equations in Plane Elasticity

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    马杭; 黄兴

    2003-01-01

    Based on the fact that the singular boundary integrals in the sense of Cauchy principal value can be represented approxi-mately by the mean values of two companion nearly singular boundary integrals, a vary general approach was developed in the paper.In the approach, the approximate formulation before discretization was constructed to cope with the difficulties encountered in the cor-ner treatment in the formulations of hypersingular boundary integral equations. This makes it possible to solve the hypersingular boundary integral equation numerically in a non-regularized form and in a local manner by using conforming C0 quadratic boundary ele-ments and standard Gaussian quadratures similar to those employed in the conventional displacement-BIE formulations. The approxi-mate formulation is very convenient to use because the corner information is comprised naturally in the representations of those ap-proximate integrals. Numerical examples in plane elasticity show that with the present approach, the compatible or better results can be achieved in comparison with those of the conventional BIE formulations.

    Singular integral equations play important roles in physics and theoretical mechanics, particularly in the areas of elasticity, aerodynamics, and unsteady aerofoil theory. They are highly effective in solving boundary problems occurring in the theory of functions of a complex variable, potential theory, the theory of elasticity, and the theory of fluid mechanics.This high-level treatment by a noted mathematician considers one-dimensional singular integral equations involving Cauchy principal values.

  8. The Application of a Boundary Integral Equation Method to the Prediction of Ducted Fan Engine Noise

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dunn, M. H.; Tweed, J.; Farassat, F.

    1999-01-01

    The prediction of ducted fan engine noise using a boundary integral equation method (BIEM) is considered. Governing equations for the BIEM are based on linearized acoustics and describe the scattering of incident sound by a thin, finite-length cylindrical duct in the presence of a uniform axial inflow. A classical boundary value problem (BVP) is derived that includes an axisymmetric, locally reacting liner on the duct interior. Using potential theory, the BVP is recast as a system of hypersingular boundary integral equations with subsidiary conditions. We describe the integral equation derivation and solution procedure in detail. The development of the computationally efficient ducted fan noise prediction program TBIEM3D, which implements the BIEM, and its utility in conducting parametric noise reduction studies are discussed. Unlike prediction methods based on spinning mode eigenfunction expansions, the BIEM does not require the decomposition of the interior acoustic field into its radial and axial components which, for the liner case, avoids the solution of a difficult complex eigenvalue problem. Numerical spectral studies are presented to illustrate the nexus between the eigenfunction expansion representation and BIEM results. We demonstrate BIEM liner capability by examining radiation patterns for several cases of practical interest.

    2014-01-01

    We solve the longstanding problem to define a functional characterization of the spectrum of the transfer matrix associated to the most general spin-1/2 representations of the 6-vertex reflection algebra for general inhomogeneous chains. The corresponding homogeneous limit reproduces the spectrum of the Hamiltonian of the spin-1/2 open XXZ and XXX quantum chains with the most general integrable boundaries. The spectrum is characterized by a second order finite difference functional equation of Baxter type with an inhomogeneous term which vanishes only for some special but yet interesting non-diagonal boundary conditions. This functional equation is shown to be equivalent to the known separation of variable (SOV) representation hence proving that it defines a complete characterization of the transfer matrix spectrum. The polynomial character of the Q-function allows us then to show that a finite system of equations of generalized Bethe type can be similarly used to describe the complete transfer matrix spectru...

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lee, Yong Woo; Lee, Duck Joo

    2014-12-01

    Kirchhoff's formula for the convective wave equation is derived using the generalized function theory. The generalized convective wave equation for a stationary surface is obtained, and the integral formulation, the convective Kirchhoff's formula, is derived. The formula has a similar form to the classical Kirchhoff's formula, but an additional term appears due to a moving medium effect. For convenience, the additional term is manipulated to a final form as the classical Kirchhoff's formula. The frequency domain boundary integral can be obtained from the current time domain boundary integral form. The derived formula is verified by comparison with the analytic solution of source in the uniform flow. The formula is also utilized as a boundary integral equation. Time domain boundary element method (BEM) analysis using the boundary integral equation is conducted, and the results show good agreement with the analytical solution. The formula derived here can be useful for sound radiation and scattering by arbitrary bodies in a moving medium in the time domain.

  12. Connectivity as an alternative to boundary integral equations: Construction of bases

    1978-01-01

    In previous papers Herrera developed a theory of connectivity that is applicable to the problem of connecting solutions defined in different regions, which occurs when solving partial differential equations and many problems of mechanics. In this paper we explain how complete connectivity conditions can be used to replace boundary integral equations in many situations. We show that completeness is satisfied not only in steady-state problems such as potential, reduced wave equation and static and quasi-static elasticity, but also in time-dependent problems such as heat and wave equations and dynamical elasticity. A method to obtain bases of connectivity conditions, which are independent of the regions considered, is also presented. PMID:16592522

    The extended displacement discontinuity boundary integral equation (EDDBIE) and boundary element method is developed for the analysis of planar cracks of arbitrary shape in the isotropic plane of three-dimensional (3D) transversely isotropic thermo-magneto-electro-elastic (TMEE) media. The extended displacement discontinuities (EDDs) include conventional displacement discontinuity, electric potential discontinuity, magnetic potential discontinuity, as well as temperature discontinuity across crack faces; correspondingly, the extended stresses represent conventional stress, electric displacement, magnetic induction and heat flux. Employing a Hankel transformation, the fundamental solutions for unit point EDDs in 3D transversely isotropic TMEE media are derived. The EDDBIEs for a planar crack of arbitrary shape in the isotropic plane of a 3D transversely isotropic TMEE medium are then established. Using the boundary integral equation method, the singularities of near-crack border fields are obtained and the extended stress field intensity factors are expressed in terms of the EDDs on crack faces. According to the analogy between the EDDBIEs for an isotropic thermoelastic material and TMEE medium, an analogical solution method for crack problems of a TMEE medium is proposed for coupled multi-field loadings. Employing constant triangular elements, the EDDBIEs are discretized and numerically solved. As an application, the problems of an elliptical crack subjected to combined mechanical-electric-magnetic-thermal loadings are investigated.

    2008-01-01

    For two-dimensional boundary integral equations of the first kind with logarithmic kernels,the use of the conventional boundary element methods gives linear systems with dense matrix.In a recent work [J.Comput.Math.,22 (2004),pp.287-298],it is demonstrated that the dense matrix can be replaced by a sparse one if appropriate graded meshes are used in the quadrature rules.The numerical experiments also indicate that the proposed numerical methods require less computational time than the conventional ones while the formal rate of convergence can be preserved.The purpose of this work is to establish a stability and convergence theory for this fast numerical method.The stability analysis depends on a decomposition of the coefficient matrix for the collocation equation.The formal orders of convergence observed in the numerical experiments are proved rigorously.

    2016-01-01

    This book presents and explains a general, efficient, and elegant method for solving the Dirichlet, Neumann, and Robin boundary value problems for the extensional deformation of a thin plate on an elastic foundation. The solutions of these problems are obtained both analytically—by means of direct and indirect boundary integral equation methods (BIEMs)—and numerically, through the application of a boundary element technique. The text discusses the methodology for constructing a BIEM, deriving all the attending mathematical properties with full rigor. The model investigated in the book can serve as a template for the study of any linear elliptic two-dimensional problem with constant coefficients. The representation of the solution in terms of single-layer and double-layer potentials is pivotal in the development of a BIEM, which, in turn, forms the basis for the second part of the book, where approximate solutions are computed with a high degree of accuracy. The book is intended for graduate students and r...

    MA Hang; XIA Li-wei; QIN Qing-hua

    2008-01-01

    A computational model is proposed for short-fiber reinforced materials with the eigenstrain formulation of the boundary integral equations(BIE)and solved with the newly developed boundary point method(BPM).The model is closely derived from the concept of the equivalent inclusion of Eshelby tensors.Eigenstrains are iteratively determined for each short.fiber embedded in the matrix with various properties via the Eshelby tensors,which can be readily obtained beforehand either through analytical or numerical means.As unknown variables appear only on the boundary of the solution domain,the solution scale of the inhomogeneity problem with the model is greatly reduced.This feature is considered significant because such a traditionally time-consuming problem with inhomogeneity can be solved most cost-effectively compared with existing numerical models of the FEM or the BEM.The numerical examples are presented to compute the overall elastic properties for various short-fiber reinforced composites over a representative volume element(RVE),showing the validity and the effectiveness of the proposed computational modal and the solution procedure.

    The integral-differential equations for three-dimensional planar interfacial cracks of arbitrary shape in transversely isotropic bimaterials were derived by virtue of the Somigliana identity and the fundamental solutions, in which the displacement discontinuities across the crack faces are the unknowns to be determined. The interface is parallel to both the planes of isotropy. The singular behaviors of displacement and stress near the crack border were analyzed and the stress singularity indexes were obtained by integral equation method. The stress intensity factors were expressed in terms of the displacement discontinuities. In the non-oscillatory case, the hyper-singular boundary integral-differential equations were reduced to hyper-singular boundary integral equations similar to those of homogeneously isotropie materials.

    Subducting oceanic lithosphere is an example of a thin sheet-like object whose characteristic lateral dimension greatly exceeds its thickness. Here we exploit this property to derive a new hybrid boundary-integral/thin sheet (BITS) representation of subduction that combines in a single equation all the forces acting on the sheet: gravity, internal resistance to bending and stretching, and the tractions exerted by the ambient mantle. For simplicity, we limit ourselves to 2-D. We solve the BITS equations using a discrete Lagrangian approach in which the sheet is represented by a set of vertices connected by edges. Instantaneous solutions for the sinking speed of a slab attached to a trailing flat sheet obey a scaling law of the form V/VStokes = fct(St), where VStokes is a characteristic Stokes sinking speed and St is the sheet's flexural stiffness. Time-dependent solutions for the evolution of the sheet's shape and thickness show that these are controlled by the viscosity ratio between the sheet and its surroundings. An important advantage of the BITS approach is the possibility of generalizing the sheet's rheology, either to a viscosity that varies along the sheet or to a non-Newtonian shear-thinning rheology.

    This paper is concerned with the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation on the right semi-axis. The initial boundary value problem with inhomogeneous integrable boundary conditions is studied. We show that, under some conditions on the initial data the problem has a solution and provide the procedure for constructing this solution. The procedure is based on the inverse spectral method and consists of several steps reducing to either solving some linear problems or calculations via some explicit formulas.

    2007-03-01

    A boundary integral equation (BIE) for the photonic crystal fiber is formulated using the free space Green's function and Huygen's principle. The BIE reduces the number of unknowns significantly and is flexible to handle the geometry of the fiber owing to its nature of the formulation. The real and imaginary parts of the propagating constant, which is related to the dispersion and the confinement loss of the fiber, are calculated as a function of wavelength for both the air-silica fiber and the photonic bandgap fiber by the root searching method. The numerical simulations show that the air-silica fiber guides the light according to the total internal reflection and that the photonic bandgap fiber guides the light based on the scattering from the Fabry-Perot-like high-index inclusion. As a consequence, the spectrum of photonic bandgap fiber shows the discontinuities, and the locations of discontinuities obtained with BIE are compared with the simple analytical model based on the AntiResonant Reflecting Optical Waveguide (ARROW) model suggested by Natalie et al.

    Precise strip-shape control theory is significant to improve rolled strip quality, and roll flattening theory is a primary part of the strip-shape theory. To improve the accuracy of roll flattening calculation based on semi-infinite body model, a new and more accurate roll flattening model is proposed in this paper, which is derived based on boundary integral equation method. The displacement fields of the finite length semi-infinite body on left and right sides are simulated by using finite element method (FEM) and displacement decay functions on left and right sides are established. Based on the new roll flattening model, a new 4Hi mill deformation model is established and verified by FEM. The new model is compared with Foppl formula and semi-infinite body model in different strip width, roll shifting value and bending force. The results show that the pressure and flattening between rolls calculated by the new model are more precise than other two models, especially near the two roll barrel edges.

  8. The open boundary equation

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available We present a new equation describing the hydrodynamics in infinitely long tidal channels (i.e., no reflection under the influence of oceanic forcing. The proposed equation is a simple relationship between partial derivatives of water level and velocity. It is formally derived for a progressive wave in a frictionless, prismatic, tidal channel with a horizontal bed. Assessment of a large number of numerical simulations, where an open boundary condition is posed at a certain distance landward, suggests that it can also be considered accurate in the more natural case of converging estuaries with nonlinear friction and a bed slope. The equation follows from the open boundary condition and is therefore a part of the problem formulation for an infinite tidal channel. This finding provides a practical tool for evaluating tidal wave dynamics, by reconstructing the temporal variation of the velocity based on local observations of the water level, providing a fully local open boundary condition and allowing for local friction calibration.

    2016-01-01

    Boundary element methods (BEM) are used for forward computation of bioelectromagnetic fields in multi-compartment volume conductor models. Most BEM approaches assume that each compartment is in contact with at most one external compartment. In this work, I present a general surface integral equation and BEM discretization that remove this limitation and allow BEM modeling of general piecewise-homogeneous medium. The new integral equation allows positioning of field points at junctioned boundary of more than two compartments, enabling the use of linear collocation BEM in such a complex geometry. A modular BEM implementation is presented for linear collocation and Galerkin approaches, starting from standard formulation. The approach and resulting solver are verified in three ways, including comparison to finite element method (FEM). In a two-compartment split-sphere model with two spaced monopoles, the results obtained with high-resolution FEM and the BEMs were almost identical (relative difference < 0.003).

    In solving of boundary value problems the shapes of the boundary can be modelled by the curves widely used in computer graphics. In parametric integral equations system (PIES) such curves are directly included into the mathematical formalism. Its simplify the way of definition and modification of the shape of the boundary. Until now in PIES the B-spline, Bézier and Hermite curves were used. Recent developments in the computer graphics paid our attention, therefore we implemented in PIES possibility of defining the shape of boundary using the NURBS curves. The curves will allow us to modeling different shapes more precisely. In this paper we will compare PIES solutions (with applied NURBS) with the solutions existing in the literature.

    Full Text Available The problem of nonuniqueness (NU of the solution of exterior acoustic problems via boundary integral equations is discussed in this article. The efficient implementation of the CHIEF (Combined Helmholtz Integral Equations Formulation method to axisymmetric problems is studied. Interior axial fields are used to indicate the solution error and to select proper CHIEF points. The procedure makes full use of LU-decomposition as well as the forward solution derived in the solution. Implementations of the procedure for hard spheres are presented. Accurate results are obtained up to a normalised radius of ka = 20.983, using only one CHIEF point. The radiation from a uniformly vibrating sphere is also considered. Accurate results for ka up to 16.927 are obtained using two CHIEF points.

    LongShuyao; HuDe'an

    2003-01-01

    The meshless method is a new numerical technique presented in recent years .It uses the moving least square (MLS) approximation as a shape function . The smoothness of the MLS approximation is determined by that of the basic function and of the weight function, and is mainly determined by that of the weight function. Therefore, the weight function greatly affects the accuracy of results obtained. Different kinds of weight functions, such as the spline function, the Gauss function and so on, are proposed recently by many researchers. In the present work, the features of various weight functions are illustrated through solving elasto-static problems using the local boundary integral equation method. The effect of various weight functions on the accuracy, convergence and stability of results obtained is also discussed. Examples show that the weight function proposed by Zhou Weiyuan and Gauss and the quartic spline weight function are better than the others if parameters c and a in Gauss and exponential weight functions are in the range of reasonable values, respectively, and the higher the smoothness of the weight function, the better the features of the solutions.

    Along with the general development of numerical methods in pure and applied to apply integral equations to geophysical modelling has sciences, the ability improved considerably within the last thirty years or so. This is due to the successful derivation of integral equations that are applicable to the modelling of complex structures, and efficient numerical algorithms for their solution. A significant stimulus for this development has been the advent of fast digital computers. The purpose of this book is to give an idea of the principles by which boundary-value problems describing geophysical models can be converted into integral equations. The end results are the integral formulas and integral equations that form the theoretical framework for practical applications. The details of mathematical analysis have been kept to a minimum. Numerical algorithms are discussed only in connection with some illustrative examples involving well-documented numerical modelling results. The reader is assu­ med to have a back...

  18. Iterative method for the numerical solution of a system of integral equations for the heat conduction initial boundary value problem

    Science.gov (United States)

    Svetushkov, N. N.

    2016-11-01

    The paper deals with a numerical algorithm to reduce the overall system of integral equations describing the heat transfer process at any geometrically complex area (both twodimensional and three-dimensional), to the iterative solution of a system of independent onedimensional integral equations. This approach has been called "string method" and has been used to solve a number of applications, including the problem of the detonation wave front for the calculation of heat loads in pulse detonation engines. In this approach "the strings" are a set of limited segments parallel to the coordinate axes, into which the whole solving area is divided (similar to the way the strings are arranged in a tennis racket). Unlike other grid methods where often for finding solutions, the values of the desired function in the region located around a specific central point here in each iteration step is determined by the solution throughout the length of the one-dimensional "string", which connects the two end points and set them values and determine the temperature distribution along all the strings in the first step of an iterative procedure.

    We consider the numerical solution for the Helmholtz equation in R2 with mixed boundary conditions. The solvability of this mixed boundary value problem is established by the boundary integral equation method. Based on the Green formula, we express the solution in terms of the boundary data. The key to the numerical realization of this method is the computation of weakly singular integrals. Numerical performances show the validity and feasibility of our method. The numerical schemes proposed in this paper have been applied in the realization of probe method for inverse scattering problems.

  20. Gauss-Jacobi quadratures for weakly, strongly, hyper- and nearly-singular integrals in boundary integral equation methods for domains with sharp edges and corners

    Tsalamengas, John L.

    2016-11-01

    We present Gauss-Jacobi quadrature rules in terms of hypergeometric functions for the discretization of weakly singular, strongly singular, hypersingular, and nearly singular integrals that arise in integral equation formulations of potential problems for domains with sharp edges and corners. The rules are tailored to weight functions with algebraic endpoint singularities of a fairly general form, thus allowing one to easily incorporate a wide class of domains into the analysis. Numerical examples illustrate the accuracy and stability of the proposed algorithms; it is shown that the same level of high accuracy can be achieved for any choice of the external variable. The usefulness of the method is exemplified by application to the solution of a singular integral equation that arises in time-harmonic electromagnetic scattering by either closed or open perfectly conducting cylindrical objects with edges and corners, such as polygon cylinders and bent strips. Some practical aspects concerning the role of nearby singularities in achieving a highly accurate solution of singular integral equations are, also, discussed.

    Barnwell, R. W.; Dejarnette, F. R.; Wahls, R. A.

    1987-01-01

    A new turbulent boundary-layer method is developed which models the inner region with the law of the wall while the outer region uses Clauser's eddy viscosity in Matsuno's finite-difference method. The match point between the inner and outer regions as well as the wall shear stress are determined at each marching step during the computation. Results obtained for incompressible, two-dimensional flow over flat plates and ellipses are compared with solutions from a baseline method which uses a finite-difference method for the entire boundary layer. Since the present method used the finite-difference method in the outer region only, the number of grid points required was about half that needed for the baseline method. Accurate displacement and momentum thicknesses were predicted for all cases. Skin friction was predicted well for the flat plate, but the accuracy decreased significantly for the ellipses. Adding a wake functions to the law of the wall allows some of the pressure gradient effect to be taken into account thereby increasing the accuracy of the method.

    The heterogeneous mixture properties depend on its constituents' characteristics. We examine the effective permittivity of a two-phase composite material made of epoxy resin host matrix and barium titanate (BaTiO{sub 3}) filler for different volume fractions in the matrix. The task we undertake consists in finding a model of BaTiO{sub 3} particles through the computer simulations executed in PHI3D-electric field calculating package, based on the resolution of the Laplace equation using boundary integral equation method. With this aim in view we compare the measured results of the effective permittivity of the BaTiO{sub 3}-epoxy resin composite samples with the simulation results for different BaTiO{sub 3} particle geometric models and for the same experimental conditions, with regard to the given volume fraction of the powder in the matrix. The experimental results are obtained through the measurements with an impedance meter in the range of frequencies from 50 Hz to 1 MHz.

  6. Fast Domain Partitioning Method for dynamic boundary integral equations applicable to non-planar faults dipping in 3-D elastic half-space

    2016-11-01

    The elastodynamic boundary integral equation method (BIEM) in real space and in the temporal domain is an accurate semi-analytical tool to investigate the earthquake rupture dynamics on non-planar faults. However, its heavy computational demand for a historic integral generally increases with a time complexity of O(MN3)for the number of time steps N and elements M due to volume integration in the causality cone. In this study, we introduce an efficient BIEM, termed the `Fast Domain Partitioning Method' (FDPM), which enables us to reduce the computation time to the order of the surface integral, O(MN2), without degrading the accuracy. The memory requirement is also reduced to O(M2) from O(M2N). FDPM uses the physical nature of Green's function for stress to partition the causality cone into the domains of the P and S wave fronts, the domain in-between the P and S wave fronts, and the domain of the static equilibrium, where the latter two domains exhibit simpler dependences on time and/or space. The scalability of this method is demonstrated on the large-scale parallel computing environments of distributed memory systems. It is also shown that FDPM enables an efficient use of memory storage, which makes it possible to reduce computation times to a previously unprecedented level. We thus present FDPM as a powerful tool to break through the current fundamental difficulties in running dynamic simulations of coseismic ruptures and earthquake cycles under realistic conditions of fault geometries.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ma, To Fu; Marín-Rubio, Pedro; Surco Chuño, Christian Manuel

    2017-03-01

    This paper is concerned with long-time dynamics of weakly damped semilinear wave equations defined on domains with moving boundary. Since the boundary is a function of the time variable the problem is intrinsically non-autonomous. Under the hypothesis that the lateral boundary is time-like, the solution operator of the problem generates an evolution process U (t , τ) :Xτ →Xt, where Xt are time-dependent Sobolev spaces. Then, by assuming the domains are expanding, we establish the existence of minimal pullback attractors with respect to a universe of tempered sets defined by the forcing terms. Our assumptions allow nonlinear perturbations with critical growth and unbounded time-dependent external forces.

    马杭; 黄兴

    2003-01-01

    Based on the fact that the singular boundary integrals in the sense of Cauchy principal value can be represented approxi-mately by the mean values of two companion nearly singular boundary integrals, a vary general approach was developed in the paper.In the approach, the approximate formulation before discretization was constructed to cope with the difficulties encountered in the cor-ner treatment in the formulations of hypersingular boundary integral equations. This makes it possible to solve the hypersingularboundary integral equation numerically in a non-regularized form and in a local manner by using conforming C0 quadratic boundary ele-ments and standard Gaussian quadratures similar to those employed in the conventional displacement-BIE formulations. The approxi-mate formulation is very convenient to use because the corner information is comprised naturally in the representations of those ap-proximate integrals. Numerical examples in plane elasticity show that with the present approach, the compatible or better results canbe achieved in comparison with those of the conventional BIE formulations.

The main purpose is finding a difference scheme for the one dimensional heat equation with nonlocal boundary conditions. In these types of problems, an integral equation is appeared in the boundary conditions. We first express the necessary materials and definitions, and then consider our difference scheme and next the integrals in the boundary equations are approximated by the composite trapezoid rule. In the final part, we present an example for checking the numerical results. In this example we obtain the Hausdorff distance between exact solution and approximate solution.

    de Gier, Jan; Rasmussen, Jorgen

    2012-01-01

    We consider boundary conditions compatible with discrete holomorphicity for the dilute O(n) and C_2^(1) loop models. In each model, for a general set of boundary plaquettes, multiple types of loops can appear. A generalisation of Smirnov's parafermionic observable is therefore required in order to maintain the discrete holomorphicity property in the bulk. We show that there exist natural boundary conditions for this observable which are consistent with integrability, that is to say that, by imposing certain boundary conditions, we obtain a set of linear equations whose solutions also satisfy the corresponding reflection equation. In both loop models, several new sets of integrable weights are found using this approach.

    Quantum hydrodynamics equations describing the dynamics of quantum fluid are a subject of this report (QFD).These equations can be used to decide the wide class of problem. But there are the calculated difficulties for the equations, which take place for nonlinear hyperbolic systems. In this connection, It is necessary to impose the additional restrictions which assure the existence and unique of solutions. As test sample, we use the free wave packet and study its behavior at the different initial and boundary conditions. The calculations of wave packet propagation cause in numerical algorithm the division. In numerical algorithm at the calculations of wave packet propagation, there arises the problem of division by zero. To overcome this problem we have to sew together discrete numerical and analytical continuous solutions on the boundary. We demonstrate here for the free wave packet that the numerical solution corresponds to the analytical solution.

  5. Langevin equation model of dispersion in the convective boundary layer

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Nasstrom, J S

    1998-08-01

    This dissertation presents the development and evaluation of a Lagrangian stochastic model of vertical dispersion of trace material in the convective boundary layer (CBL). This model is based on a Langevin equation of motion for a fluid particle, and assumes the fluid vertical velocity probability distribution is skewed and spatially homogeneous. This approach can account for the effect of large-scale, long-lived turbulent structures and skewed vertical velocity distributions found in the CBL. The form of the Langevin equation used has a linear (in velocity) deterministic acceleration and a skewed randomacceleration. For the case of homogeneous fluid velocity statistics, this ""linear-skewed" Langevin equation can be integrated explicitly, resulting in a relatively efficient numerical simulation method. It is shown that this approach is more efficient than an alternative using a "nonlinear-Gaussian" Langevin equation (with a nonlinear deterministic acceleration and a Gaussian random acceleration) assuming homogeneous turbulence, and much more efficient than alternative approaches using Langevin equation models assuming inhomogeneous turbulence. "Reflection" boundary conditions for selecting a new velocity for a particle that encounters a boundary at the top or bottom of the CBL were investigated. These include one method using the standard assumption that the magnitudes of the particle incident and reflected velocities are positively correlated, and two alternatives in which the magnitudes of these velocities are negatively correlated and uncorrelated. The constraint that spatial and velocity distributions of a well-mixed tracer must be the same as those of the fluid, was used to develop the Langevin equation models and the reflection boundary conditions. The two Langevin equation models and three reflection methods were successfully tested using cases for which exact, analytic statistical properties of particle velocity and position are known, including well

    As described by Cachazo, He and Yuan, scattering amplitudes in many quantum field theories can be represented as integrals that are fully localized on solutions to the so-called scattering equations. Because the number of solutions to the scattering equations grows quite rapidly, the contour of integration involves contributions from many isolated components. In this paper, we provide a simple, combinatorial rule that immediately provides the result of integration against the scattering equation constraints for any M\\"obius-invariant integrand involving only simple poles. These rules have a simple diagrammatic interpretation that makes the evaluation of any such integrand immediate. Finally, we explain how these rules are related to the computation of amplitudes in the field theory limit of string theory.

    In this paper we consider a special boundary value problem for multidimensional parabolic integro-differential equation with boundary conditions that contains as a boundary condition containing derivatives of order higher than the order of the equation. The solution is sought in the form of a thermal potential of a double layer. Shows lemma of finding the limits of the derivatives of the unknown function in the neighborhood of the hyperplane. Using the boundary condition and lemma obtained integral-differential equation (IDE) of parabolic operators, whĐţre an unknown function under the integral contains higher-order space variables derivatives. IDE is reduced to a singular integral equation (SIE), when an unknown function in the spatial variables satisfies the Holder. The characteristic part is solved in the class of distribution function using method of transformation of Fourier-Laplace. Found an algebraic condition for the transition to the classical generalized solution. Integral equation of the resolvent for the characteristic part of SIE is obtained. Integro-differential equation is reduced to the Volterra-Fredholm type integral equation of the second kind by method of regularization. It is shown that the solution of SIE is a solution of IDE. Obtain a theorem on the solvability of the boundary value problem of multidimensional parabolic integro-differential equation, when a known function of the spatial variables belongs to the Holder class and satisfies the solvability conditions.

    2003-01-01

    We construct asymptotically Euclidean solutions of the vacuum Einstein constraint equations with apparent horizon boundary condition. Specifically, we give sufficient conditions for the constant mean curvature conformal method to generate such solutions. The method of proof is based on the barrier method introduced by Isenberg for compact manifolds without boundary, suitably extended to accommodate semilinear boundary conditions and low regularity metrics. As a consequence of our results for manifolds with boundary, we also obtain improvements to the theory of the constraint equations on asymptotically Euclidean manifolds without boundary.

    2007-01-01

    Various methods of treating outer boundaries in numerical relativity are compared using a simple test problem: a Schwarzschild black hole with an outgoing gravitational wave perturbation. Numerical solutions computed using different boundary treatments are compared to a `reference' numerical solution obtained by placing the outer boundary at a very large radius. For each boundary treatment, the full solutions including constraint violations and extracted gravitational waves are compared to those of the reference solution, thereby assessing the reflections caused by the artificial boundary. These tests use a first-order generalized harmonic formulation of the Einstein equations. Constraint-preserving boundary conditions for this system are reviewed, and an improved boundary condition on the gauge degrees of freedom is presented. Alternate boundary conditions evaluated here include freezing the incoming characteristic fields, Sommerfeld boundary conditions, and the constraint-preserving boundary conditions of K...

    龙述尧; 许敬晓

    2000-01-01

    The basic concept and numerical implementation of a local boundaryintegral equation formulation for solving the elasticity problem havebeen presented in the present paper. It is a new truly meshless method,because the numerical implementation of the method leads to an efficientmeshless discrete model. The concept of a companion solution isintroduced, such that the traction terms would not appear in theintegrals over the local boundary after the modified integral kernel isused for all nodes whose local boundary s falls within theglobal boundary of the given problem; it uses the moving leastsquare approximations, and involves only boundary integration over alocal boundary centered at the node in question. It poses nodifficulties in satisfying essential boundary conditions, and leads to abanded and sparse system matrix. The undependence of the solution onthe size of the integral local boundary provides a great flexibilityin dealing with the numerical model of the elastic plane problems undervarious boundary conditions with arbitrary shapes. Convergence studiesin the numerical examples show that the present method possesses anexcellent rate of convergence and reasonably accurate results for boththe unknown displacement and strain energy, as the originalapproximated trial solutions have nice continuity and smoothness. Thenumerical results also show that using both linear and quadratic basesas well as spline and Gaussian weight functions in approximationfunctions can give quite accurate numerical results.   Compared with the conventional boundary element method based on the globalboundary integral equations, the present method is advantageous in thefollowing aspects:   i) No boundary and domain element needed to be constructed in the presentmethod, while it is necessary to discretize both the entire domain andits boundary for the conventional boundary element method in general. Thevolume and boundary integrals in the present method are evaluated onlyover small

In this paper, we use the boundary-volume integral equation technique to simulate the seismic wave propagation in the complex near surface structure by solving the wave propagation equation with complex near surface condition. In the boundary-volume integral equation technique, the boundary element method can simulate irregular surface and geological structure for seismic wave propagation, and the volume element method can simulate the effect of the heterogeneous medium in low subweathered zone for the seismic wave propagation. Compared with other numerical simulation methods, the main advantage of the boundary-volume integral equation technique is its accurate geometric description of irregular surface and interface to simulate the boundary scattering waves by the free surface; it explicitly applies the continuous boundary conditions of the complex near surface to implement the semi-analytical numerical simulation; it

    General exact solutions in terms of wavelet expansion are obtained for multi-term time-fractional diffusion-wave equations with Robin type boundary conditions. By proposing a new method of integral transform for solving boundary value problems, such fractional partial differential equations are converted into time-fractional ordinary differ-ential equations, which are further reduced to algebraic equations by using the Laplace transform. Then, with a wavelet-based exact formula of Laplace inversion, the resulting exact solutions in the Laplace transform domain are reversed to the time-space domain. Three examples of wave-diffusion problems are given to validate the proposed analytical method.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2015-05-01

    Full Text Available In recent time there is a very great interest in the study of differential equations of fractional order, in which the unknown function is under the symbol of fractional derivative. It is due to the development of the theory of fractional integro-differential theory and application of it in different fields.The fractional integrals and derivatives of fractional integro-differential equations are widely used in modern investigations of theoretical physics, mechanics, and applied mathematics. The fractional calculus is a very powerful tool for describing physical systems, which have a memory and are non-local. Many processes in complex systems have nonlocality and long-time memory. Fractional integral operators and fractional differential operators allow describing some of these properties. The use of the fractional calculus will be helpful for obtaining the dynamical models, in which integro-differential operators describe power long-time memory by time and coordinates, and three-dimensional nonlocality for complex medium and processes.Differential equations of fractional order appear when we use fractal conception in physics of the condensed medium. The transfer, described by the operator with fractional derivatives at a long distance from the sources, leads to other behavior of relatively small concentrations as compared with classic diffusion. This fact redefines the existing ideas about safety, based on the ideas on exponential velocity of damping. Fractional calculus in the fractal theory and the systems with memory have the same importance as the classic analysis in mechanics of continuous medium.In recent years, the application of fractional derivatives for describing and studying the physical processes of stochastic transfer is very popular too. Many problems of filtration of liquids in fractal (high porous medium lead to the need to study boundary value problems for partial differential equations in fractional order.In this paper the

  9. Homogenization of the evolution Stokes equation in a perforated domain with a stochastic Fourier boundary condition

    KAUST Repository

    Bessaih, Hakima

    2015-04-01

    The evolution Stokes equation in a domain containing periodically distributed obstacles subject to Fourier boundary condition on the boundaries is considered. We assume that the dynamic is driven by a stochastic perturbation on the interior of the domain and another stochastic perturbation on the boundaries of the obstacles. We represent the solid obstacles by holes in the fluid domain. The macroscopic (homogenized) equation is derived as another stochastic partial differential equation, defined in the whole non perforated domain. Here, the initial stochastic perturbation on the boundary becomes part of the homogenized equation as another stochastic force. We use the twoscale convergence method after extending the solution with 0 in the holes to pass to the limit. By Itô stochastic calculus, we get uniform estimates on the solution in appropriate spaces. In order to pass to the limit on the boundary integrals, we rewrite them in terms of integrals in the whole domain. In particular, for the stochastic integral on the boundary, we combine the previous idea of rewriting it on the whole domain with the assumption that the Brownian motion is of trace class. Due to the particular boundary condition dealt with, we get that the solution of the stochastic homogenized equation is not divergence free. However, it is coupled with the cell problem that has a divergence free solution. This paper represents an extension of the results of Duan and Wang (Comm. Math. Phys. 275:1508-1527, 2007), where a reaction diffusion equation with a dynamical boundary condition with a noise source term on both the interior of the domain and on the boundary was studied, and through a tightness argument and a pointwise two scale convergence method the homogenized equation was derived. © American Institute of Mathematical Sciences.

    It has been 15 years since the first edition of Stochastic Integration and Differential Equations, A New Approach appeared, and in those years many other texts on the same subject have been published, often with connections to applications, especially mathematical finance. Yet in spite of the apparent simplicity of approach, none of these books has used the functional analytic method of presenting semimartingales and stochastic integration. Thus a 2nd edition seems worthwhile and timely, though it is no longer appropriate to call it "a new approach". The new edition has several significant changes, most prominently the addition of exercises for solution. These are intended to supplement the text, but lemmas needed in a proof are never relegated to the exercises. Many of the exercises have been tested by graduate students at Purdue and Cornell Universities. Chapter 3 has been completely redone, with a new, more intuitive and simultaneously elementary proof of the fundamental Doob-Meyer decomposition theorem, t...

    2017-02-01

    Discretization error is usually the largest and most difficult numerical error source to estimate for computational fluid dynamics, and boundary conditions often contribute a significant source of error. Boundary conditions are described with a governing equation to prescribe particular behavior at the boundary of a computational domain. Boundary condition implementations are considered sufficient when discretized with the same order of accuracy as the primary governing equations; however, careless implementations of boundary conditions can result in significantly larger numerical error. Investigations into different numerical implementations of Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions for Burgers' equation show a significant impact on the accuracy of Richardson extrapolation and error transport equation discretization error estimates. The development of boundary conditions for Burgers' equation shows significant improvements in discretization error estimates in general and a significant improvement in truncation error estimation. The latter of which is key to accurate residual-based discretization error estimation. This research investigates scheme consistent and scheme inconsistent implementations of inflow and outflow boundary conditions up to fourth order accurate and a formulation for a slip wall boundary condition for truncation error estimation are developed for the Navier-Stokes and Euler equations. The scheme consistent implementation resulted in much smoother truncation error near the boundaries and more accurate discretization error estimates.

    The existenoe and limit hehaviour of the solution for a kind of nonloeal noulinear boundary value condition on a part of the boundary is studied for the heat equation, which physicallymeans that the potential is the function of the total flux. When this part of boundary shrinks to a point in a certain way, this condition either results in a Dirac measure or simply disappears in the corresponding problem.

    A two-phase free boundary problem associated with a diffusion-convection equation is considered. The problem is reduced to a system of nonlinear integral equations, which admits a unique solution for small times. The system admits an explicit two-component solution corresponding to a two-component shock wave of the Burgers equation. The stability of such a solution is also discussed.

    In this paper, we examine the effectiveness of absorbing layers as non-reflecting computational boundaries for the Euler equations. The absorbing-layer equations are simply obtained by splitting the governing equations in the coordinate directions and introducing absorption coefficients in each split equation. This methodology is similar to that used by Berenger for the numerical solutions of Maxwell's equations. Specifically, we apply this methodology to three physical problems shock-vortex interactions, a plane free shear flow and an axisymmetric jet- with emphasis on acoustic wave propagation. Our numerical results indicate that the use of absorbing layers effectively minimizes numerical reflection in all three problems considered.

  4. Wavelets, turbulence, and boundary value problems for partial differential equations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Weiss, John E.

    1995-04-01

    In this paper the qualitative properties of an inviscid, incompressible two-dimensional fluid are examined by numerical methods based on the compactly supported wavelets (the wavelet- Galerkin method). In particular, we examine the behavior of the spatial gradients of the vorticity. The growth of these gradients is related to the transfer of enstrophy (integral of squared vorticity) to the small-scales of the fluid motion. Implicit time differencing and wavelet-Galerkin space discretization allow a direct investigation of the long time behavior of the inviscid fluid. The effects of hyperviscosity on the long time limit are examined. To solve boundary problems we developed a new numerical method for the solution of partial differential equations in nonseparable domains. The method uses a wavelet-Galerkin solver with a nontrivial adaptation of the standard capacitance matrix method. The numerical solutions exhibit spectral convergence with regard to the order of the compactly supported, Daubechies wavelet basis. Furthermore, the rate of convergence is found to be independent of the geometry. We solve the Helmholtz equation since, for the indefinite case, the solutions have qualitative properties that well illustrate the applications of our method.

    The path integral approach to quantum mechanics requires a substantial generalisation to describe the dynamics of systems confined to bounded domains. Nonlocal boundary conditions can be introduced in Feynman's approach by means of boundary amplitude distributions and complex phases to describe the quantum dynamics in terms of the classical trajectories. The different prescriptions involve only trajectories reaching the boundary and correspond to different choices of boundary conditions of selfadjoint extensions of the Hamiltonian. One dimensional particle dynamics is analysed in detail.

    1990-01-01

    The behavior of solitons induced by boundary excitation is investigated at various time-dependent conditions and different unperturbed water depths, using the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation. Then, solitons induced from Boussinesq equations under similar conditions were studied, making it possible to remove the restriction in the KdV equation and to treat soliton head-on collisions (as well as overtaking collisions) and reflections. It is found that the results obtained from the KdV and the Boussinesq equations are in good agreement.

    A modified power-law fluid of second grade is considered. The model is a combination of power-law and second grade fluid in which the fluid may exhibit normal stresses, shear thinning or shear thickening behaviors. The equations of motion are derived for two dimensional incom-pressible flows, and from which the boundary layer equations are derived. Symmetries of the boundary layer equations are found by using Lie group theory, and then group classifica-tion with respect to power-law index is performed. By using one of the symmetries, namely the scaling symmetry, the partial differential system is transformed into an ordinary differential system, which is numerically integrated under the classical boundary layer conditions. Effects of power-law index and second grade coefficient on the boundary layers are shown and solutions are contrasted with the usual second grade fluid solutions.

    1999-01-01

    Full Text Available Traditionally, boundary value problems have been studied for elliptic differential equations. The mathematical systems described in these cases turn out to be “well posed”. However, it is also important, both mathematically and physically, to investigate the question of boundary value problems for hyperbolic partial differential equations. In this regard, prescribing data along characteristics as formulated by Kalmenov [5] is of special interest. The most recent works in this area have resulted in a number of interesting discoveries [3, 4, 5, 7, 8]. Our aim here is to extend some of these results to a more general domain which includes the characteristics of the underlying wave equation as a part of its boundary.

    Much of the literature on point interactions in quantum mechanics has focused on the differential form of Schrödinger’s equation. This paper, in contrast, investigates the integral form of Schrödinger’s equation. While both forms are known to be equivalent for smooth potentials, this is not true for distributional potentials. Here, we assume that the potential is given by a distribution defined on the space of discontinuous test functions. First, by using Schrödinger’s integral equation, we confirm a seminal result by Kurasov, which was originally obtained in the context of Schrödinger’s differential equation. This hints at a possible deeper connection between both forms of the equation. We also sketch a generalisation of Kurasov’s [J. Math. Anal. Appl. 201(1), 297–323 (1996)] result to hypersurfaces. Second, we derive a new closed-form solution to Schrödinger’s integral equation with a delta prime potential. This potential has attracted considerable attention, including some controversy. Interestingly, the derived propagator satisfies boundary conditions that were previously derived using Schrödinger’s differential equation. Third, we derive boundary conditions for “super-singular” potentials given by higher-order derivatives of the delta potential. These boundary conditions cannot be incorporated into the normal framework of self-adjoint extensions. We show that the boundary conditions depend on the energy of the solution and that probability is conserved. This paper thereby confirms several seminal results and derives some new ones. In sum, it shows that Schrödinger’s integral equation is a viable tool for studying singular interactions in quantum mechanics.

    1990-12-31

    Many large simulations may be required to assess the performance of Yucca Mountain as a possible site for the nations first high level nuclear waste repository. A boundary integral equation method (BIEM) is described for numerical analysis of quasilinear steady unsaturated flow in homogeneous material. The applicability of the exponential model for the dependence of hydraulic conductivity on pressure head is discussed briefly. This constitutive assumption is at the heart of the quasilinear transformation. Materials which display a wide distribution in pore-size are described reasonably well by the exponential. For materials with a narrow range in pore-size, the exponential is suitable over more limited ranges in pressure head. The numerical implementation of the BIEM is used to investigate the infiltration from a strip source to a water table. The net infiltration of moisture into a finite-depth layer is well-described by results for a semi-infinite layer if {alpha}D > 4, where {alpha} is the sorptive number and D is the depth to the water table. the distribution of moisture exhibits a similar dependence on {alpha}D. 11 refs., 4 figs.,

    In this paper, we study the large time behavior of solutions to a class of fast diffusion equations with nonlinear boundary sources on the exterior domain of the unit ball. We are interested in the critical global exponent q0 and the critical Fujita exponent qc for the problem considered, and show that q0 = qc for the multidimensional Non-Newtonian polytropic filtration equation with nonlinear boundary sources, which is quite different from the known results that q0 < qc for the onedimensional case; moreover, the value is different from the slow case.

    We present a new formulation and generalization of the classical theory of heat conduction with or without fading memory. As a special case, we investigate the well-posedness of systems which consist of Coleman-Gurtin type equations subject to dynamic boundary conditions, also with memory. Nonlinear terms are defined on the interior of the domain and on the boundary and subject to either classical dissipation assumptions, or to a nonlinear balance condition in the sense of Gal (2012). Additionally, we do not assume that the interior and the boundary share the same memory kernel.

    A skin-friction equation for transpired incompressible turbulent boundary layer, proposed in a previous paper (Silva-Freire, 1988), is extended to compressible flow. The expression derived here is simple and gives more consistent results than the momentum-integral equation. The difficulty with the present formulation, however, is that the wake profile parameter due to injection has to be carefully determined in order to obtain good results.

The first and second variation of the functional is calculated. Various necessary conditions of optimality of the first and second order are obtained by the help of the variation of the controls.

  5. On the wave equation with semilinear porous acoustic boundary conditions

    KAUST Repository

    Graber, Philip Jameson

    2012-05-01

    The goal of this work is to study a model of the wave equation with semilinear porous acoustic boundary conditions with nonlinear boundary/interior sources and a nonlinear boundary/interior damping. First, applying the nonlinear semigroup theory, we show the existence and uniqueness of local in time solutions. The main difficulty in proving the local existence result is that the Neumann boundary conditions experience loss of regularity due to boundary sources. Using an approximation method involving truncated sources and adapting the ideas in Lasiecka and Tataru (1993) [28], we show that the existence of solutions can still be obtained. Second, we prove that under some restrictions on the source terms, then the local solution can be extended to be global in time. In addition, it has been shown that the decay rates of the solution are given implicitly as solutions to a first order ODE and depends on the behavior of the damping terms. In several situations, the obtained ODE can be easily solved and the decay rates can be given explicitly. Third, we show that under some restrictions on the initial data and if the interior source dominates the interior damping term and if the boundary source dominates the boundary damping, then the solution ceases to exists and blows up in finite time. Moreover, in either the absence of the interior source or the boundary source, then we prove that the solution is unbounded and grows as an exponential function. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.

    In this article we consider an inverse boundary problem, in which the unknown boundary function ∂u/∂v = f(u) is to be determined from overposed data in a time-fractional diffusion equation. Based upon the free space fundamental solution, we derive a representation for the solution f as a nonlinear Volterra integral equation of second kind with a weakly singular kernel. Uniqueness and reconstructibility by iteration is an immediate result of a priori assumption on f and applying the fixed point theorem. Numerical examples are presented to illustrate the validity and effectiveness of the proposed method. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-10-01

    Full Text Available In this article we propose a new formulation of boundary-value problem for a one-dimensional wave equation in a rectangular domain in which boundary conditions are given on the whole boundary. We prove the well-posedness of boundary-value problem in the classical and generalized senses. To substantiate the well-posedness of this problem it is necessary to have an effective representation of the general solution of the problem. In this direction we obtain a convenient representation of the general solution for the wave equation in a rectangular domain based on d'Alembert classical formula. The constructed general solution automatically satisfies the boundary conditions by a spatial variable. Further, by setting different boundary conditions according to temporary variable, we get some functional or functional-differential equations. Thus, the proof of the well-posedness of the formulated problem is reduced to question of the existence and uniqueness of solutions of the corresponding functional equations.

This type of asymptotic analysis is based on some fundamental principles by Norman Levinson. While he applied them to a special class of differential equations, subsequent work has shown that the same principles lead to asymptotic results for much wider classes of differential and also difference equations. After discussing asymptotic integration in a unified approach, this book studies how the application of these methods provides several new insights and frequent improvements to results found in earlier literature. It then continues with a brief introduction to the relatively new field of asymptotic integration for dynamic equations on time scales. Asymptotic Integration of Differential and Difference Equations is a self-contained and clearly structured presentation of some of the most important results in asymptotic integration and the techniques used in this field.

    This study makes the first attempt to extend the meshless boundary-discretization singular boundary method (SBM) with time-dependent fundamental solution to two-dimensional and three-dimensional scalar wave equation upon Dirichlet boundary condition. The two empirical formulas are also proposed to determine the source intensity factors. In 2D problems, the fundamental solution integrating along with time is applied. In 3D problems, a time-successive evaluation approach without complicated mathematical transform is proposed. Numerical investigations show that the present SBM methodology produces the accurate results for 2D and 3D time-dependent wave problems with varied velocities c and wave numbers k.

    2016-07-01

    On the basis of the consideration of the boundary-value problem for the generalized equation of heat conduction in bounded nonuniform spaces with Dirichlet, Neumann, and Robin boundary conditions, corresponding sequences of boundary characteristics have been obtained. For each of these sequences, definite integro-differential representations (relations) have been constructed. It has been shown that approximate analytical solutions can be obtained for bounded nonuniform regions with variable transfer coefficients in the Cartesian, cylindrical, and spherical coordinate systems. On the basis of systems of algebraic equations, approximate analytical solutions have been constructed with approximately equal accuracies independently of the calculation scheme used (with the introduction of the temperature-disturbance front or without it, i.e., by multiple integration of the heat-conduction equation over the whole computational region). These solutions have a negligibly small error and, therefore, can be considered as conditionally exact.

    2006-01-01

    This paper studies the application of the continuous sensitivity equation method (CSEM) for the Navier-Stokes equations in the particular case of shape parameters. Boundary conditions for shape parameters involve flow derivatives at the boundary. Thus, accurate flow gradients are critical to the success of the CSEM. A new approach is presented to extract accurate flow derivatives at the boundary. High order Taylor series expansions are used on layered patches in conjunction with a constrained least-squares procedure to evaluate accurate first and second derivatives of the flow variables at the boundary, required for Dirichlet and Neumann sensitivity boundary conditions. The flow and sensitivity fields are solved using an adaptive finite-element method. The proposed methodology is first verified on a problem with a closed form solution obtained by the Method of Manufactured Solutions. The ability of the proposed method to provide accurate sensitivity fields for realistic problems is then demonstrated. The flow and sensitivity fields for a NACA 0012 airfoil are used for fast evaluation of the nearby flow over an airfoil of different thickness (NACA 0015).

    From the Hamiltonian connecting the inside and outside of a Fabry-Pérot cavity, which is derived from the Maxwell boundary conditions at a mirror of the cavity, a master equation of a non-Lindblad form is derived when the cavity embeds matters, although we can transform it to the Lindblad form by performing the rotating-wave approximation to the connecting Hamiltonian. We calculate absorption spectra by these Lindblad and non-Lindblad master equations and also by the Maxwell boundary conditions in the framework of the classical electrodynamics, which we consider the most reliable approach. We found that, compared to the Lindblad master equation, the absorption spectra by the non-Lindblad one agree better with those by the Maxwell boundary conditions. Although the discrepancy is highlighted only in the ultrastrong light-matter interaction regime with a relatively large broadening, the master equation of the non-Lindblad form is preferable rather than of the Lindblad one for pursuing the consistency with the classical electrodynamics.

  19. Lectures on differential equations for Feynman integrals

    CERN Document Server

    Henn, Johannes M

    2014-01-01

    Over the last year significant progress was made in the understanding of the computation of Feynman integrals using differential equations. These lectures give a review of these developments, while not assuming any prior knowledge of the subject. After an introduction to differential equations for Feynman integrals, we point out how they can be simplified using algorithms available in the mathematical literature. We discuss how this is related to a recent conjecture for a canonical form of the equations. We also discuss a complementary approach that allows based on properties of the space-time loop integrands, and explain how the ideas of leading singularities and d-log representations can be used to find an optimal basis for the differential equations. Finally, as an application of the differential equations method we show how single-scale integrals can be bootstrapped using the Drinfeld associator of a differential equation.

    2009-10-01

    We discuss existence and uniqueness of solutions for a one-dimensional parabolic evolution equation with a free boundary. This problem was introduced by Lasry and Lions as description of the dynamical formation of the price of a trading good. Short time existence and uniqueness is established by a contraction argument. Then we discuss the issue of global-in-time-extension of the local solution which is closely related to the regularity of the free boundary. We also present numerical results. © 2009 World Scientific Publishing Company.

  1. New integrability case for the Riccati equation

    CERN Document Server

    Mak, M K

    2012-01-01

    A new integrability condition of the Riccati equation $dy/dx=a(x)+b(x)y+c(x)y^{2}$ is presented. By introducing an auxiliary equation depending on a generating function $f(x)$, the general solution of the Riccati equation can be obtained if the coefficients $a(x)$, $b(x)$, $c(x)$, and the function $f(x)$ satisfy a particular constraint. The validity and reliability of the method are tested by obtaining the general solutions of some Riccati type differential equations. Some applications of the integrability conditions for the case of the damped harmonic oscillator with time dependent frequency, and for solitonic wave, are briefly discussed.

  2. Solution of a Problem Linear Plane Elasticity with Mixed Boundary Conditions by the Method of Boundary Integrals

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available A numerical boundary integral scheme is proposed for the solution to the system of …eld equations of plane. The stresses are prescribed on one-half of the circle, while the displacements are given. The considered problem with mixed boundary conditions in the circle is replaced by two problems with homogeneous boundary conditions, one of each type, having a common solution. The equations are reduced to a system of boundary integral equations, which is then discretized in the usual way, and the problem at this stage is reduced to the solution to a rectangular linear system of algebraic equations. The unknowns in this system of equations are the boundary values of four harmonic functions which define the full elastic solution and the unknown boundary values of stresses or displacements on proper parts of the boundary. On the basis of the obtained results, it is inferred that a stress component has a singularity at each of the two separation points, thought to be of logarithmic type. The results are discussed and boundary plots are given. We have also calculated the unknown functions in the bulk directly from the given boundary conditions using the boundary collocation method. The obtained results in the bulk are discussed and three-dimensional plots are given. A tentative form for the singular solution is proposed and the corresponding singular stresses and displacements are plotted in the bulk. The form of the singular tangential stress is seen to be compatible with the boundary values obtained earlier. The efficiency of the used numerical schemes is discussed.

We establish a rigorous variational analysis such as equivalence, existence and uniqueness.And we propose finite element approximations based on the uncoupled solutions. Finally we present a convergence analysis and error estimates.

    2013-02-15

    We investigate a control problem for the heat equation. The goal is to find an optimal heat transfer coefficient in the dynamic boundary condition such that a desired temperature distribution at the boundary is adhered. To this end we consider a function space setting in which the heat flux across the boundary is forced to be an L{sup p} function with respect to the surface measure, which in turn implies higher regularity for the time derivative of temperature. We show that the corresponding elliptic operator generates a strongly continuous semigroup of contractions and apply the concept of maximal parabolic regularity. This allows to show the existence of an optimal control and the derivation of necessary and sufficient optimality conditions.

  8. A boundary matching micro/macro decomposition for kinetic equations

    CERN Document Server

    Lemou, Mohammed

    2010-01-01

    We introduce a new micro/macro decomposition of collisional kinetic equations which naturally incorporates the exact space boundary conditions. The idea is to write the distribution fonction $f$ in all its domain as the sum of a Maxwellian adapted to the boundary (which is not the usual Maxwellian associated with $f$) and a reminder kinetic part. This Maxwellian is defined such that its 'incoming' velocity moments coincide with the 'incoming' velocity moments of the distribution function. Important consequences of this strategy are the following. i) No artificial boundary condition is needed in the micro/macro models and the exact boundary condition on $f$ is naturally transposed to the macro part of the model. ii) It provides a new class of the so-called 'Asymptotic preserving' (AP) numerical schemes: such schemes are consistent with the original kinetic equation for all fixed positive value of the Knudsen number $\\eps$, and if $\\eps \\to 0 $ with fixed numerical parameters then these schemes degenerate into ...

    2005-01-01

    Full Text Available A plane rectangular bar of conducting and permeable material is placed in an external low-frequency magnetic field. The shielding properties of this object are investigated by solving the given plane eddy current problem for the vector potential with the boundary integral equation method. The vector potential inside the rectangle is governed by Helmholtz' equation, which in our case is solved by separation. The solution is inserted into the remaining boundary integral equation for the exterior vector potential in the domain surrounding the bar. By expressing its logarithmic kernel as a Fourier integral the overall solution inside and outside the bar is calculated using analytical means only.

  12. Spectral integration of linear boundary value problems

    CERN Document Server

    Viswanath, Divakar

    2012-01-01

    Spectral integration is a method for solving linear boundary value problems which uses the Chebyshev series representation of functions to avoid the numerical discretization of derivatives. It is occasionally attributed to Zebib (J. of Computational Physics vol. 53 (1984), p. 443-455) and more often to Greengard (SIAM J. on Numerical Analysis vol. 28 (1991), p. 1071-1080). Its advantage is believed to be its relative immunity to errors that arise when nearby grid points are used to approximate derivatives. In this paper, we reformulate the method of spectral integration by changing it in four different ways. The changes consist of a more convenient integral formulation, a different way to treat and interpret boundary conditions, treatment of higher order problems in factored form, and the use of piecewise Chebyshev grid points. Our formulation of spectral integration is more flexible and powerful as show by its ability to solve a problem that would otherwise take 8192 grid points using only 96 grid points. So...

  15. Explicit Integration of Friedmann's Equation with Nonlinear Equations of State

    Chen, Shouxin; Yang, Yisong

    2015-01-01

    This paper is a continuation of our earlier study on the integrability of the Friedmann equations in the light of the Chebyshev theorem. Our main focus will be on a series of important, yet not previously touched, problems when the equation of state for the perfect-fluid universe is nonlinear. These include the generalized Chaplygin gas, two-term energy density, trinomial Friedmann, Born--Infeld, and two-fluid models. We show that some of these may be integrated using Chebyshev's result while other are out of reach by the theorem but may be integrated explicitly by other methods. With the explicit integration, we are able to understand exactly the roles of the physical parameters in various models play in the cosmological evolution. For example, in the Chaplygin gas universe, it is seen that, as far as there is a tiny presence of nonlinear matter, linear matter makes contribution to the dark matter, which becomes significant near the phantom divide line. The Friedmann equations also arise in areas of physics ...

  16. Universal equations of unsteady two-dimensional MHD boundary layer whose temperature varies with time

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Boričić Zoran

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper concerns with unsteady two-dimensional temperature laminar magnetohydrodynamic (MHD boundary layer of incompressible fluid. It is assumed that induction of outer magnetic field is function of longitudinal coordinate with force lines perpendicular to the body surface on which boundary layer forms. Outer electric filed is neglected and magnetic Reynolds number is significantly lower then one i.e. considered problem is in inductionless approximation. Characteristic properties of fluid are constant because velocity of flow is much lower than speed of light and temperature difference is small enough (under 50ºC . Introduced assumptions simplify considered problem in sake of mathematical solving, but adopted physical model is interesting from practical point of view, because its relation with large number of technically significant MHD flows. Obtained partial differential equations can be solved with modern numerical methods for every particular problem. Conclusions based on these solutions are related only with specific temperature MHD boundary layer problem. In this paper, quite different approach is used. First new variables are introduced and then sets of similarity parameters which transform equations on the form which don't contain inside and in corresponding boundary conditions characteristics of particular problems and in that sense equations are considered as universal. Obtained universal equations in appropriate approximation can be solved numerically once for all. So-called universal solutions of equations can be used to carry out general conclusions about temperature MHD boundary layer and for calculation of arbitrary particular problems. To calculate any particular problem it is necessary also to solve corresponding momentum integral equation.

    We consider rotational initial data for the two-dimensional incompressible Euler equations on an annulus. Using the convex integration framework, we show that there exist infinitely many admissible weak solutions (i.e. such with non-increasing energy) for such initial data. As a consequence, on bounded domains there exist admissible weak solutions which are not dissipative in the sense of P.-L. Lions, as opposed to the case without physical boundaries. Moreover we show that admissible solutions are dissipative provided they are H\\"{o}lder continuous near the boundary of the domain.

Also we establish some properties of the solutions and of the set they form.

    The boundary integral method (BIM) is a formulation of Helmholtz equation in the form of an integral equation suitable for numerical discretization to solve the quantum billiard. This paper is an extensive numerical survey of BIM in a variety of quantum billiards, integrable (circle, rectangle), KAM systems (Robnik billiard) and fully chaotic (ergodic, such as stadium, Sinai billiard and cardioid billiard). On the theoretical side we point out some serious flaws in the derivation of BIM in the literature and show how the final formula (which nevertheless was correct) should be derived in a sound way and we also argue that a simple minded application of BIM in nonconvex geometries presents serious difficulties or even fails. On the numerical side we have analyzed the scaling of the averaged absolute value of the systematic error \\Delta E of the eigenenergy in units of mean level spacing with the density of discretization (b = number of numerical nodes on the boundary within one de Broglie wavelength), and we f...

  5. Variational integrators for nonvariational partial differential equations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kraus, Michael; Maj, Omar

    2015-08-01

    Variational integrators for Lagrangian dynamical systems provide a systematic way to derive geometric numerical methods. These methods preserve a discrete multisymplectic form as well as momenta associated to symmetries of the Lagrangian via Noether's theorem. An inevitable prerequisite for the derivation of variational integrators is the existence of a variational formulation for the considered problem. Even though for a large class of systems this requirement is fulfilled, there are many interesting examples which do not belong to this class, e.g., equations of advection-diffusion type frequently encountered in fluid dynamics or plasma physics. On the other hand, it is always possible to embed an arbitrary dynamical system into a larger Lagrangian system using the method of formal (or adjoint) Lagrangians. We investigate the application of the variational integrator method to formal Lagrangians, and thereby extend the application domain of variational integrators to include potentially all dynamical systems. The theory is supported by physically relevant examples, such as the advection equation and the vorticity equation, and numerically verified. Remarkably, the integrator for the vorticity equation combines Arakawa's discretisation of the Poisson brackets with a symplectic time stepping scheme in a fully covariant way such that the discrete energy is exactly preserved. In the presentation of the results, we try to make the geometric framework of variational integrators accessible to non specialists.

  6. A Generic Length-scale Equation For Second-order Turbulence Models of Oceanic Boundary Layers

    Science.gov (United States)

    Umlauf, L.; Burchard, H.

    A generic transport equation for a generalized length-scale in second-order turbulence closure models for geophysical boundary layers is suggested. This variable consists of the products of powers of the turbulent kinetic energy, k, and the integral length-scale, l. The new approach generalizes traditional second-order models used in geophysical boundary layer modelling, e.g. the Mellor-Yamada model and the k- model, which, however, can be recovered as special cases. It is demonstrated how this new model can be calibrated with measurements in some typical geophysical boundary layer flows. As an example, the generic model is applied to the uppermost oceanic boundary layer directly influenced by the effects of breaking surface waves. Recent measurements show that in this layer the classical law of the wall is invalid, since there turbulence is dominated by turbulent transport of TKE from above, and not by shear-production. A widely accepted approach to describe the wave-affected layer with a one-equation turbulence model was suggested by Craig and Banner (1994). Here, some deficien- cies of their solutions are pointed out and a generalization of their ideas for the case of two-equation models is suggested. Direct comparison with very recently obtained measurements of the dissipation rate, , in the wave-affected boundary layer with com- puted results clearly demonstrate that only the generic two-equation model yields cor- rect predictions for the profiles of and the turbulent length scale, l. Also, the pre- dicted velocity profiles in the wave-affected layer, important e.g. for the interpretation of surface drifter experiments, are reproduced correctly only by the generic model. Implementation and computational costs of the generic model are comparable with traditonal two-equation models.

    2009-01-01

    We study the initial-boundary value problem of the Navier-Stokes equations for incompressible fluids in a general domain in RN with compact and smooth boundary, subject to the kinematic and vorticity boundary conditions on the non-fiat boundary. We observe that, under the nonhomogeneons boundary conditions, the pressure p can be still recovered by solving the Neumann problem for the Poisson equation. Then we establish the well-posedness of the unsteady Stokes equations and employ the solution to reduce our initial-boundary value problem into an initial-boundary value problem with absolute boundary conditions. Based on this, we first establish the well-posedness for an appropriate local linearized problem with the absolute boundary conditions and the initial condition (without the incompressibility condition), which establishes a velocity mapping. Then we develop apriori estimates for the velocity mapping, especially involving the Sobolev norm for the time-derivative of the mapping to deal with the complicated boundary conditions, which leads to the existence of the fixed point of the mapping and the existence of solutions to our initial-boundary value problem. Finally, we establish that, when the viscosity coefficient tends zero, the strong solutions of the initial-boundary value problem in RN(n≥3) with nonhomogeneous vorticity boundary condition converge in L2 to the corresponding Euler equations satisfying the kinematic condition.

    Constable, Steve; Schmidt, Matthew; Ing, Christopher; Zeng, Tao; Roy, Pierre-Nicholas

    2013-08-15

    We propose a Langevin equation path integral ground state (LePIGS) approach for the calculation of ground state (zero temperature) properties of molecular systems. The approach is based on a modification of the finite temperature path integral Langevin equation (PILE) method (J. Chem. Phys. 2010, 133, 124104) to the case of open Feynman paths. Such open paths are necessary for a ground state formulation. We illustrate the applicability of the method using model systems and the weakly bound water-parahydrogen dimer. We show that the method can lead to converged zero point energies and structural properties.

  9. PREFACE: Symmetries and Integrability of Difference Equations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Doliwa, Adam; Korhonen, Risto; Lafortune, Stéphane

    2007-10-01

    The notion of integrability was first introduced in the 19th century in the context of classical mechanics with the definition of Liouville integrability for Hamiltonian flows. Since then, several notions of integrability have been introduced for partial and ordinary differential equations. Closely related to integrability theory is the symmetry analysis of nonlinear evolution equations. Symmetry analysis takes advantage of the Lie group structure of a given equation to study its properties. Together, integrability theory and symmetry analysis provide the main method by which nonlinear evolution equations can be solved explicitly. Difference equations (DE), like differential equations, are important in numerous fields of science and have a wide variety of applications in such areas as mathematical physics, computer visualization, numerical analysis, mathematical biology, economics, combinatorics, and quantum field theory. It is thus crucial to develop tools to study and solve DEs. While the theory of symmetry and integrability for differential equations is now largely well-established, this is not yet the case for discrete equations. Although over recent years there has been significant progress in the development of a complete analytic theory of difference equations, further tools are still needed to fully understand, for instance, the symmetries, asymptotics and the singularity structure of difference equations. The series of SIDE meetings on Symmetries and Integrability of Difference Equations started in 1994. Its goal is to provide a platform for an international and interdisciplinary communication for researchers working in areas associated with integrable discrete systems, such as classical and quantum physics, computer science and numerical analysis, mathematical biology and economics, discrete geometry and combinatorics, theory of special functions, etc. The previous SIDE meetings took place in Estérel near Montréal, Canada (1994), at the University of

    Special solutions of the Yang-Mills field equations of theoretical physics may be obtained by solving a boundary value problem for a nonlinear elliptic equation in a two dimensional half space. This equation degenerates at the boundary of the region and this degeneracy makes it a delicate matter to study how the solutions behave near the boundary. In this work it is proved that the weak solutions previously known to exist are in fact smooth up to the boundary.

    Many boundary element integral equation kernels are based on the Green's functions of the Laplace and Helmholtz equations in three dimensions. These include, for example, the Laplace, Helmholtz, elasticity, Stokes, and Maxwell's equations. Integral equation formulations lead to more compact, but dense linear systems. These dense systems are often solved iteratively via Krylov subspace methods, which may be accelerated via the fast multipole method. There are advantages to Galerkin formulations for such integral equations, as they treat problems associated with kernel singularity, and lead to symmetric and better conditioned matrices. However, the Galerkin method requires each entry in the system matrix to be created via the computation of a double surface integral over one or more pairs of triangles. There are a number of semi-analytical methods to treat these integrals, which all have some issues, and are discussed in this paper. We present novel methods to compute all the integrals that arise in Galerkin fo...

    2007-01-01

    A general Lie algebra Vs and the corresponding loop algebra ~Vs are constructed, from which the linear isospectral Lax pairs are established, whose compatibility presents the zero curvature equation. As its application, a new Lax integrable hierarchy containing two parameters is worked out. It is not Liouville-integrable, however, its two reduced systems are Liouville-integrable, whose Hamiltonian structures are derived by making use of the quadratic-form identity and the γ formula (i.e. the computational formula on the constant γ appeared in the trace identity and the quadratic-form identity).

    In this paper,we study existence and uniqueness of solutions to nonlinear three point boundary value problems for fractional differential equation of the type cDδ0+u(t) =f(t,u(t),cDσ0+u(t)),t ∈[0,T],u(0) =αu(η),u(T) =βu(η),where1 <δ<2,0<σ< 1,α,β∈R,η∈(0,T),αη(1-β)+(1-α)(T-βη) ≠0 and cDoδ+,cDσ0+ are the Caputo fractional derivatives.We use Schauder fixed point theorem and contraction mapping principle to obtain existence and uniqueness results.Examples are also included to show the applicability of our results.

  16. A boundary integral approach to analyze the viscous scattering of a pressure wave by a rigid body

    Homentcovschi, Dorel; Miles, Ronald N.

    2008-01-01

    The paper provides boundary integral equations for solving the problem of viscous scattering of a pressure wave by a rigid body. By using this mathematical tool uniqueness and existence theorems are proved. Since the boundary conditions are written in terms of velocities, vector boundary integral equations are obtained for solving the problem. The paper introduces single-layer viscous potentials and also a stress tensor. Correspondingly, a viscous double-layer potential is defined. The properties of all these potentials are investigated. By representing the scattered field as a combination of a single-layer viscous potential and a double-layer viscous potential the problem is reduced to the solution of a singular vectorial integral equation of Fredholm type of the second kind. In the case where the stress vector on the boundary is the main quantity of interest the corresponding boundary singular integral equation is proved to have a unique solution. PMID:18709178

    CERN Document Server

    Chappell, David J

    2014-01-01

    Determining the flow of rays or particles driven by a force or velocity field is fundamental to modelling many physical processes, including weather forecasting and the simulation of molecular dynamics. High frequency wave energy distributions can also be approximated using flow or transport equations. Applications arise in underwater and room acoustics, vibro-acoustics, seismology, electromagnetics, quantum mechanics and in producing computer generated imagery. In many practical applications, the driving field is not known exactly and the dynamics are determined only up to a degree of uncertainty. This paper presents a boundary integral framework for propagating flows including uncertainties, which is shown to systematically interpolate between a deterministic and a completely random description of the trajectory propagation. A simple but efficient discretisation approach is applied to model uncertain billiard dynamics in an integrable rectangular domain.

    Determining the flow of rays or non-interacting particles driven by a force or velocity field is fundamental to modelling many physical processes. These include particle flows arising in fluid mechanics and ray flows arising in the geometrical optics limit of linear wave equations. In many practical applications, the driving field is not known exactly and the dynamics are determined only up to a degree of uncertainty. This paper presents a boundary integral framework for propagating flows including uncertainties, which is shown to systematically interpolate between a deterministic and a completely random description of the trajectory propagation.

    Full Text Available We briefly review and investigate the performance of various boundary conditions such as Dirichlet, Neumann, linear, and partial differential equation boundary conditions for the numerical solutions of the Black-Scholes partial differential equation. We use a finite difference method to numerically solve the equation. To show the efficiency of the given boundary condition, several numerical examples are presented. In numerical test, we investigate the effect of the domain sizes and compare the effect of various boundary conditions with pointwise error and root mean square error. Numerical results show that linear boundary condition is accurate and efficient among the other boundary conditions.

    Pan, Wenxiao; Bao, Jie; Tartakovsky, Alexandre M.

    2014-02-01

    A Robin boundary condition for the Navier-Stokes equations is used to model slip conditions at the fluid-solid boundaries. A novel continuous boundary force (CBF) method is proposed for solving the Navier-Stokes equations subject to the Robin boundary condition. In the CBF method, the Robin boundary condition is replaced by the homogeneous Neumann boundary condition and a volumetric force term added to the momentum conservation equation. Smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) method is used to solve the resulting Navier-Stokes equations. We present solutions for two- and three-dimensional flows subject to various forms of the Robin boundary condition in domains bounded by flat and curved boundaries. The numerical accuracy and convergence are examined through comparison of the SPH-CBF results with the solutions of finite difference or finite-element method. Considering the no-slip boundary condition as a special case of the slip boundary condition, we demonstrate that the SPH-CBF method accurately describes both the no-slip and slip conditions.

    2000-01-01

    In solving integral equations with logarithmic kernel which arises from the boundary integral equation reformulation of some boundary value problems for the two dimensional Helmholtz equation, we combine the Galerkin method with Beylkin's ([2]) approach, series of dense and nonsymmetric matrices may appear if we use traditional method. By appealing the so-called periodic quasi-wavelet (PQW in abbr.) ([5]), some of these matrices become diagonal, therefore we can find a algorithm with only O(K(m)2) arithmetic operations where m is the highest level. The Galerkin approximation has a polynomial rate of convergence.

  9. A Tensor-Train accelerated solver for integral equations in complex geometries

    Science.gov (United States)

    Corona, Eduardo; Rahimian, Abtin; Zorin, Denis

    2017-04-01

    We present a framework using the Quantized Tensor Train (QTT) decomposition to accurately and efficiently solve volume and boundary integral equations in three dimensions. We describe how the QTT decomposition can be used as a hierarchical compression and inversion scheme for matrices arising from the discretization of integral equations. For a broad range of problems, computational and storage costs of the inversion scheme are extremely modest O (log ⁡ N) and once the inverse is computed, it can be applied in O (Nlog ⁡ N) . We analyze the QTT ranks for hierarchically low rank matrices and discuss its relationship to commonly used hierarchical compression techniques such as FMM and HSS. We prove that the QTT ranks are bounded for translation-invariant systems and argue that this behavior extends to non-translation invariant volume and boundary integrals. For volume integrals, the QTT decomposition provides an efficient direct solver requiring significantly less memory compared to other fast direct solvers. We present results demonstrating the remarkable performance of the QTT-based solver when applied to both translation and non-translation invariant volume integrals in 3D. For boundary integral equations, we demonstrate that using a QTT decomposition to construct preconditioners for a Krylov subspace method leads to an efficient and robust solver with a small memory footprint. We test the QTT preconditioners in the iterative solution of an exterior elliptic boundary value problem (Laplace) formulated as a boundary integral equation in complex, multiply connected geometries.

  12. A numerical method for solving the 3D unsteady incompressible Navier Stokes equations in curvilinear domains with complex immersed boundaries

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ge, Liang; Sotiropoulos, Fotis

    2007-08-01

    A novel numerical method is developed that integrates boundary-conforming grids with a sharp interface, immersed boundary methodology. The method is intended for simulating internal flows containing complex, moving immersed boundaries such as those encountered in several cardiovascular applications. The background domain (e.g. the empty aorta) is discretized efficiently with a curvilinear boundary-fitted mesh while the complex moving immersed boundary (say a prosthetic heart valve) is treated with the sharp-interface, hybrid Cartesian/immersed-boundary approach of Gilmanov and Sotiropoulos [A. Gilmanov, F. Sotiropoulos, A hybrid cartesian/immersed boundary method for simulating flows with 3d, geometrically complex, moving bodies, Journal of Computational Physics 207 (2005) 457-492.]. To facilitate the implementation of this novel modeling paradigm in complex flow simulations, an accurate and efficient numerical method is developed for solving the unsteady, incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in generalized curvilinear coordinates. The method employs a novel, fully-curvilinear staggered grid discretization approach, which does not require either the explicit evaluation of the Christoffel symbols or the discretization of all three momentum equations at cell interfaces as done in previous formulations. The equations are integrated in time using an efficient, second-order accurate fractional step methodology coupled with a Jacobian-free, Newton-Krylov solver for the momentum equations and a GMRES solver enhanced with multigrid as preconditioner for the Poisson equation. Several numerical experiments are carried out on fine computational meshes to demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed method for standard benchmark problems as well as for unsteady, pulsatile flow through a curved, pipe bend. To demonstrate the ability of the method to simulate flows with complex, moving immersed boundaries we apply it to calculate pulsatile, physiological flow

Several existence criteria depending on the nonlinearity involved in the problems are presented by means of a variety of tools of the fixed point theory. The applicability of the results is shown with the aid of examples. Our results are not only new in the given configuration but also yield some new special cases for specific choices of parameters involved in the problems.

    The surface free energy is the difference between the free energies for a system with open boundary conditions and the same system with periodic boundary conditions. We use the quantum transfer matrix formalism to express the surface free energy in the thermodynamic limit of systems with integrable boundary conditions as a matrix element of certain projection operators. Specializing to the XXZ spin-1/2 chain we introduce a novel 'finite temperature boundary operator' which characterizes the thermodynamical properties of surfaces related to integrable boundary conditions.

    Fokas, A. S.; De Lillo, S.

    2014-03-01

    So-called inverse scattering provides a powerful method for analyzing the initial value problem for a large class of nonlinear evolution partial differential equations which are called integrable. In the late 1990s, the first author, motivated by inverse scattering, introduced a new method for analyzing boundary value problems. This method provides a unified treatment for linear, linearizable and integrable nonlinear partial differential equations. Here, this method, which is often referred to as the unified transform, is illustrated for the following concrete cases: the heat equation on the half-line; the nonlinear Schrödinger equation on the half-line; Burger's equation on the half-line; and Burger's equation on a moving boundary.

    2013-01-01

    In this paper, we present a parallel higher-order boundary integral method to solve the linear Poisson-Boltzmann (PB) equation. In our method, a well-posed boundary integral formulation is used to ensure the fast convergence of Krylov subspace linear solver such as GMRES. The molecular surfaces are first discretized with flat triangles and then converted to curved triangles with the assistance of normal information at vertices. To maintain the desired accuracy, four-point Gauss-Radau quadratures are used on regular triangles and sixteen-point Gauss-Legendre quadratures together with regularization transformations are applied on singular triangles. To speed up our method, we take advantage of the embarrassingly parallel feature of boundary integral formulation, and parallelize the schemes with the message passing interface (MPI) implementation. Numerical tests show significantly improved accuracy and convergence of the proposed higher-order boundary integral Poisson-Boltzmann (HOBI-PB) solver compared with bou...

    2003-07-01

    It is pointed out that for the case of (compressible) magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) with the fields v(y)(y,t) and Bx(y,t), one can have equations of the Burgers type which are integrable. We discuss the solutions. It turns out that the propagation of the nonlinear effects is governed by the initial velocity (as in Burgers case) as well as by the initial Alfvén velocity. Many results previously obtained for the Burgers equation can be transferred to the MHD case. We also discuss equipartition v(y)=+/-Bx. It is shown that an initial localized small scale magnetic field will end up in fields moving to the left and the right, thus transporting energy from smaller to larger distances.

    High accuracy numerical quadrature methods for integrals of singular periodic functions are proposed. These methods are based on the appropriate Euler-Maclaurin expansions of trapezoidal rule approximations and their extrapolations. They are used to obtain accurate quadrature methods for the solution of singular and weakly singular Fredholm integral equations. Such periodic equations are used in the solution of planar elliptic boundary value problems, elasticity, potential theory, conformal mapping, boundary element methods, free surface flows, etc. The use of the quadrature methods is demonstrated with numerical examples.

    2015-10-28

    An equivalent source model was proposed as a boundary condition to the nonlinear parabolic Khokhlov-Zabolotskaya (KZ) equation to simulate high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) fields generated by medical ultrasound transducers with the shape of a spherical shell. The boundary condition was set in the initial plane; the aperture, the focal distance, and the initial pressure of the source were chosen based on the best match of the axial pressure amplitude and phase distributions in the Rayleigh integral analytic solution for a spherical transducer and the linear parabolic approximation solution for the equivalent source. Analytic expressions for the equivalent source parameters were derived. It was shown that the proposed approach allowed us to transfer the boundary condition from the spherical surface to the plane and to achieve a very good match between the linear field solutions of the parabolic and full diffraction models even for highly focused sources with F-number less than unity. The proposed method can be further used to expand the capabilities of the KZ nonlinear parabolic equation for efficient modeling of HIFU fields generated by strongly focused sources.

    The spheroidal wave functions are investigated in the case m=1. The integral equation is obtained for them. For the two kinds of eigenvalues in the differential and corresponding integral equations, the relation between them are given explicitly. Though there are already some integral equations for the spheroidal equations, the relation between their two kinds of eigenvalues is not known till now. This is the great advantage of our integral equation, which will provide useful information through the study of the integral equation. Also an example is given for the special case, which shows another way to study the eigenvalue problem.

  6. Material derivatives of boundary integral operators in electromagnetism and application to inverse scattering problems

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ivanyshyn Yaman, Olha; Le Louër, Frédérique

    2016-09-01

    This paper deals with the material derivative analysis of the boundary integral operators arising from the scattering theory of time-harmonic electromagnetic waves and its application to inverse problems. We present new results using the Piola transform of the boundary parametrisation to transport the integral operators on a fixed reference boundary. The transported integral operators are infinitely differentiable with respect to the parametrisations and simplified expressions of the material derivatives are obtained. Using these results, we extend a nonlinear integral equations approach developed for solving acoustic inverse obstacle scattering problems to electromagnetism. The inverse problem is formulated as a pair of nonlinear and ill-posed integral equations for the unknown boundary representing the boundary condition and the measurements, for which the iteratively regularized Gauss-Newton method can be applied. The algorithm has the interesting feature that it avoids the numerous numerical solution of boundary value problems at each iteration step. Numerical experiments are presented in the special case of star-shaped obstacles.

In this paper, we address this problem for the Einstein-Christoffel (EC symmetric hyperbolic formulation of Einstein's equations linearized around flat spacetime. First, we prescribe simple boundary conditions that make the problem well posed and preserve the constraints. Next, we indicate boundary conditions for a system that extends the linearized EC system by including the momentum constraints and whose solution solves Einstein's equations in a bounded domain.

    We here generalize the embedded boundary method that was developed for boundary discretizations of the wave equation in second order formulation in [6] and for the Euler equations of compressible fluid flow in [11], to the compressible Navier-Stokes equations. We describe the method and we implement it on a parallel computer. The implementation is tested for accuracy and correctness. The ability of the embedded boundary technique to resolve boundary layers is investigated by computing skin-friction profiles along the surfaces of the embedded objects. The accuracy is assessed by comparing the computed skin-friction profiles with those obtained by a body fitted discretization.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mera M.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available This research focuses on the development of a set of two-dimensional boundary conditions for specific governing equations. The governing equations are existing Boussinesqtype equations which is capable of simulating wave-current interaction. The present boundary conditions consist of for waves only case and for currents only case. To simulate wave-current interaction, the two kinds of the present boundary conditions are then combined. A numerical model based on both the existing governing equations and the present boundary conditions is applied to simulation of currents only and of wave-current interaction propagating over a basin with a submerged shoal. The results of the numerical model show that the present boundary conditions go well with the existing Boussinesq-type wave-current interaction equations.

    We present a set of well-posed constraint-preserving boundary conditions for a first-order in time, second-order in space, harmonic formulation of the Einstein equations. The boundary conditions are tested using robust stability, linear and nonlinear waves, and are found to be both less reflective and constraint preserving than standard Sommerfeld-type boundary conditions.

    1998-01-01

    An analysis of the effect of local preconditioning on boundary conditions for the subsonic, one-dimensional Euler equations is presented. Decay rates for the eigenmodes of the initial boundary value problem are determined for different boundary conditions. Riemann invariant boundary conditions based on the unpreconditioned Euler equations are shown to be reflective with preconditioning, and, at low Mach numbers, disturbances do not decay. Other boundary conditions are investigated which are non-reflective with preconditioning and numerical results are presented confirming the analysis.

    In many singular perturbation solutions of optimal control problems, the most difficult numerical task is to solve the boundary-layer equations. However, these equations have a special structure that may often be used to expedite their solution. This paper begins by noting the general nature of the boundary-layer equations for optimal control problems. These results are then applied to the aircraft minimum time-to-climb problem. A specific numerical example is considered to illustrate the characteristics of the solution of the boundary-layer equations for this problem.

    2002-01-01

    In this paper, a new kind of discrete non-reflecting boundary conditions is developed. It can be used for a variety of wave equations such as the acoustic wave equation, the isotropic and anisotropic elastic wave equations and the equations for wave propagation in multi-phase media and so on. In this kind of boundary conditions, the composition of all artificial reflected waves, but not the individual reflected ones, is considered and eliminated. Thus, it has a uniform formula for different wave equations. The velocity CA of the composed reflected wave is determined in the way to make the reflection coefficients minimal, the value of which depends on equations. In this paper, the construction of the boundary conditions is illustrated and CA is found, numerical results are presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the boundary conditions.

  8. Initial-Boundary Value Problem Solution of the Nonlinear Shallow-water Wave Equations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kanoglu, U.; Aydin, B.

    2014-12-01

    The hodograph transformation solutions of the one-dimensional nonlinear shallow-water wave (NSW) equations are usually obtained through integral transform techniques such as Fourier-Bessel transforms. However, the original formulation of Carrier and Greenspan (1958 J Fluid Mech) and its variant Carrier et al. (2003 J Fluid Mech) involve evaluation integrals. Since elliptic integrals are highly singular as discussed in Carrier et al. (2003), this solution methodology requires either approximation of the associated integrands by smooth functions or selection of regular initial/boundary data. It should be noted that Kanoglu (2004 J Fluid Mech) partly resolves this issue by simplifying the resulting integrals in closed form. Here, the hodograph transform approach is coupled with the classical eigenfunction expansion method rather than integral transform techniques and a new analytical model for nonlinear long wave propagation over a plane beach is derived. This approach is based on the solution methodology used in Aydın & Kanoglu (2007 CMES-Comp Model Eng) for wind set-down relaxation problem. In contrast to classical initial- or boundary-value problem solutions, here, the NSW equations are formulated to yield an initial-boundary value problem (IBVP) solution. In general, initial wave profile with nonzero initial velocity distribution is assumed and the flow variables are given in the form of Fourier-Bessel series. The results reveal that the developed method allows accurate estimation of the spatial and temporal variation of the flow quantities, i.e., free-surface height and depth-averaged velocity, with much less computational effort compared to the integral transform techniques such as Carrier et al. (2003), Kanoglu (2004), Tinti & Tonini (2005 J Fluid Mech), and Kanoglu & Synolakis (2006 Phys Rev Lett).

  15. Homogenization of the stochastic Navier–Stokes equation with a stochastic slip boundary condition

    KAUST Repository

    Bessaih, Hakima

    2015-11-02

    The two-dimensional Navier–Stokes equation in a perforated domain with a dynamical slip boundary condition is considered. We assume that the dynamic is driven by a stochastic perturbation on the interior of the domain and another stochastic perturbation on the boundaries of the holes. We consider a scaling (ᵋ for the viscosity and 1 for the density) that will lead to a time-dependent limit problem. However, the noncritical scaling (ᵋ, β > 1) is considered in front of the nonlinear term. The homogenized system in the limit is obtained as a Darcy’s law with memory with two permeabilities and an extra term that is due to the stochastic perturbation on the boundary of the holes. The nonhomogeneity on the boundary contains a stochastic part that yields in the limit an additional term in the Darcy’s law. We use the two-scale convergence method after extending the solution with 0 inside the holes to pass to the limit. By Itô stochastic calculus, we get uniform estimates on the solution in appropriate spaces. Due to the stochastic integral, the pressure that appears in the variational formulation does not have enough regularity in time. This fact made us rely only on the variational formulation for the passage to the limit on the solution. We obtain a variational formulation for the limit that is solution of a Stokes system with two pressures. This two-scale limit gives rise to three cell problems, two of them give the permeabilities while the third one gives an extra term in the Darcy’s law due to the stochastic perturbation on the boundary of the holes.

    Rosnitskiy, P. B.; Yuldashev, P. V.; Vysokanov, B. A.; Khokhlova, V. A.

    2016-03-01

    An equivalent source model is developed for setting boundary conditions on the parabolic diffraction equation in order to simulate ultrasound fields radiated by strongly focused medical transducers. The equivalent source is defined in a plane; corresponding boundary conditions for pressure amplitude, aperture, and focal distance are chosen so that the axial solution to the parabolic model in the focal region of the beam matches the solution to the full diffraction model (Rayleigh integral) for a spherically curved uniformly vibrating source. It is shown that the proposed approach to transferring the boundary condition from a spherical surface to a plane makes it possible to match the solutions over an interval of several diffraction maxima around the focus even for focused sources with F-numbers less than unity. This method can be used to accurately simulate nonlinear effects in the fields of strongly focused therapeutic transducers using the parabolic Khokhlov-Zabolotskaya equation.

  17. General Boundary-Value Problems for the Heat Conduction Equation with Piecewise-Continuous Coefficients

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tatsii, R. M.; Pazen, O. Yu.

    2016-03-01

    A constructive scheme for the construction of a solution of a mixed problem for the heat conduction equation with piecewise-continuous coefficients coordinate-dependent in the final interval is suggested and validated in the present work. The boundary conditions are assumed to be most general. The scheme is based on: the reduction method, the concept of quasi-derivatives, the currently accepted theory of the systems of linear differential equations, the Fourier method, and the modified method of eigenfunctions. The method based on this scheme should be related to direct exact methods of solving mixed problems that do not employ the procedures of constructing Green's functions or integral transformations. Here the theorem of eigenfunction expansion is adapted for the case of coefficients that have discontinuity points of the 1st kind. The results obtained can be used, for example, in investigating the process of heat transfer in a multilayer slab under conditions of ideal thermal contact between the layers. A particular case of piecewise-continuous coefficients is considered. A numerical example of calculation of a temperature field in a real four-layer building slab under boundary conditions of the 3rd kind (conditions of convective heat transfer) that model the phenomenon of fire near one of the external surfaces is given.

    An efficient method is proposed for numerical solutions of nonlinear Schrödinger equations on an unbounded domain. Through approximating the kinetic energy term by a one-way equation and uniting it with the potential energy equation, absorbing boundary conditions are designed to truncate the unbounded domain, which are in nonlinear form and can perfectly absorb waves outgoing from the boundaries of the truncated computational domain. The stability of the induced initial boundary value problem defined on the computational domain is examined by a normal mode analysis. Numerical examples are given to illustrate the stable and tractable advantages of the method.

    In this paper, we give an overview of a set of methods being developed for solving classical PDEs in irregular geometries, or in the presence of free boundaries. In this approach, the irregular geometry is represented on a rectangular grid by specifying the intersection of each grid cell with the region on one or the other side of the boundary. This leads to a natural conservative discretization of the solution to the PDE on either side of the boundary. Stable and robust hyperbolic and linear elliptic/parabolic solvers have been designed and implemented. Example applications of this approach are shown for compressible and incompressible gas dynamics problems in complex geometries, and for surface diffusion in a cell membrane.

  12. Exponential integrators for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Newman, Christopher K.

    2004-07-01

    We provide an algorithm and analysis of a high order projection scheme for time integration of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations (NSE). The method is based on a projection onto the subspace of divergence-free (incompressible) functions interleaved with a Krylov-based exponential time integration (KBEI). These time integration methods provide a high order accurate, stable approach with many of the advantages of explicit methods, and can reduce the computational resources over conventional methods. The method is scalable in the sense that the computational costs grow linearly with problem size. Exponential integrators, used typically to solve systems of ODEs, utilize matrix vector products of the exponential of the Jacobian on a vector. For large systems, this product can be approximated efficiently by Krylov subspace methods. However, in contrast to explicit methods, KBEIs are not restricted by the time step. While implicit methods require a solution of a linear system with the Jacobian, KBEIs only require matrix vector products of the Jacobian. Furthermore, these methods are based on linearization, so there is no non-linear system solve at each time step. Differential-algebraic equations (DAEs) are ordinary differential equations (ODEs) subject to algebraic constraints. The discretized NSE constitute a system of DAEs, where the incompressibility condition is the algebraic constraint. Exponential integrators can be extended to DAEs with linear constraints imposed via a projection onto the constraint manifold. This results in a projected ODE that is integrated by a KBEI. In this approach, the Krylov subspace satisfies the constraint, hence the solution at the advanced time step automatically satisfies the constraint as well. For the NSE, the projection onto the constraint is typically achieved by a projection induced by the L{sup 2} inner product. We examine this L{sup 2} projection and an H{sup 1} projection induced by the H{sup 1} semi-inner product. The H

    A stable and high-order accurate embedded boundary method for first order hyperbolic equations is derived. Where the grid-boundaries and the physical boundaries do not coincide, high order interpolation is used. The boundary stencils are based on a summation-by-parts framework, and the boundary conditions are imposed by the SAT penalty method, which guarantees linear stability for one-dimensional problems. Second-, fourth-, and sixth-order finite difference schemes are considered. The resulting schemes are fully explicit. Accuracy and numerical stability of the proposed schemes are demonstrated for both linear and nonlinear hyperbolic systems in one and two spatial dimensions.

This relation can serve as an boundary condition for the boundary value problem defined on the finite domain bounded by the artificial boundary. Numerical experiment is presented to demonstrate the performance of the method.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kempel, Leo C.; Volakis, John L.

    1992-01-01

    Conformal antenna arrays offer many cost and weight advantages over conventional antenna systems. However, due to a lack of rigorous mathematical models for conformal antenna arrays, antenna designers resort to measurement and planar antenna concepts for designing non-planar conformal antennas. Recently, we have found the finite element-boundary integral method to be very successful in modeling large planar arrays of arbitrary composition in a metallic plane. We extend this formulation to conformal arrays on large metallic cylinders. In this report, we develop the mathematical formulation. In particular, we discuss the shape functions, the resulting finite elements and the boundary integral equations, and the solution of the conformal finite element-boundary integral system. Some validation results are presented and we further show how this formulation can be applied with minimal computational and memory resources.

    For each variable transformation which preserves the form of Heun's equation we find a transformation which leaves invariant the form of the equation for the kernels of integral relations among solutions of the former equation. This enables us to generate new kernels for the Heun equation, given by single hypergeometric functions (Lambe-Ward-type kernels) and by products of two hypergeometric functions (Erd\\'elyi-type). Such kernels, by a limiting process, afford new kernels for the confluent Heun equation as well.

Then, employing an old integrability criterion due to Chiellini, we introduce the corresponding integrable dissipative equations. For illustration, we present the cases of some integrable dissipative Fisher, nonlinear pendulum, and Burgers–Huxley type equations which are obtained in this way and can be of interest in applications. We also show how to obtain Abel solutions directly from the factorization of second order nonlinear equations.

  20. A simple and robust boundary treatment for the forced Korteweg-de Vries equation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lee, Hyun Geun; Kim, Junseok

    2014-07-01

    In this paper, we propose a simple and robust numerical method for the forced Korteweg-de Vries (fKdV) equation which models free surface waves of an incompressible and inviscid fluid flow over a bump. The fKdV equation is defined in an infinite domain. However, to solve the equation numerically we must truncate the infinite domain to a bounded domain by introducing an artificial boundary and imposing boundary conditions there. Due to unsuitable artificial boundary conditions, most wave propagation problems have numerical difficulties (e.g., the truncated computational domain must be large enough or the numerical simulation must be terminated before the wave approaches the artificial boundary for the quality of the numerical solution). To solve this boundary problem, we develop an absorbing non-reflecting boundary treatment which uses outward wave velocity. The basic idea of the proposing algorithm is that we first calculate an outward wave velocity from the solutions at the previous and present time steps and then we obtain a solution at the next time step on the artificial boundary by moving the solution at the present time step with the velocity. And then we update solutions at the next time step inside the domain using the calculated solution on the artificial boundary. Numerical experiments with various initial conditions for the KdV and fKdV equations are presented to illustrate the accuracy and efficiency of our method.

    The one-dimensional Dirac equation with a rational potential is reducible to an ordinary differential equation with a Riccati-like coefficient. Its integrability can be studied with the help of differential Galois theory, although the results have to be stated with recursive relations, because in general the equation is of Heun type. The inverse problem of finding integrable rational potentials based on the properties of the singular points is also presented; in particular, a general class of integrable potentials leading to the Whittaker equation is found.

    2013-10-01

    Prior research, using two- and three-dimensional environments, has found that when both human and nonhuman animals independently acquire two associations between landmarks with a common landmark (e.g., LM1-LM2 and LM2-LM3), each with its own spatial relationship, they behave as if the two unique LMs have a known spatial relationship despite their never having been paired. Seemingly, they have integrated the two associations to create a third association with its own spatial relationship (LM1-LM3). Using sensory preconditioning (Experiment 1) and second-order conditioning (Experiment 2) procedures, we found that human participants integrated information about the boundaries of pathways to locate a goal within a three-dimensional virtual environment in the absence of any relevant landmarks. Spatial integration depended on the participant experiencing a common boundary feature with which to link the pathways. These results suggest that the principles of associative learning also apply to the boundaries of an environment.

Secondly, we prove the convergence of the viscosity solution sequences and verify that the limiting function is an entropy solution. Finally, we give an example to show how our main result can be applied to solve the initial boundary value problem for the Burgers equation.

  4. A Fourier penalty method for solving the time dependent Maxwell's equations in domains with curved boundaries

    CERN Document Server

    Galagusz, Ryan; Nave, Jean-Christophe

    2015-01-01

    We present a high order, Fourier penalty method for the Maxwell's equations in the vicinity of perfect electric conductor boundary conditions. The approach relies on extending the irregular non-periodic domain of the equations to a regular periodic domain by removing the exact boundary conditions and introducing an analytic forcing term in the extended domain. The forcing, or penalty term is chosen to systematically enforce the boundary conditions to high order in the penalty parameter, which then allows for higher order numerical methods. We present an efficient numerical method for constructing the penalty term, and discretize the resulting equations using a Fourier spectral method. We demonstrate convergence orders of up to 3.5 for the one dimensional Maxwell's equations, and show that the numerical method does not suffer from dispersion (or pollution) errors. We also illustrate the approach in two dimensions and demonstrate convergence orders of 2.5 for transverse magnetic modes and 1.5 for the transverse...

    In this paper, we present an analytical solution to nonlocal continuum electrostatics for an arbitrary charge distribution in a spherical solute. Our approach relies on two key steps: (1) re-formulating the PDE problem using boundary-integral equations, and (2) diagonalizing the boundary-integral operators using the fact their eigenfunctions are the surface spherical harmonics. To introduce this uncommon approach for analytical calculations in separable geometries, we rederive Kirkwood's classic results for a protein surrounded concentrically by a pure-water ion-exclusion layer and then a dilute electrolyte (modeled with the linearized Poisson--Boltzmann equation). Our main result, however, is an analytical method for calculating the reaction potential in a protein embedded in a nonlocal-dielectric solvent, the Lorentz model studied by Dogonadze and Kornyshev. The analytical method enables biophysicists to study the new nonlocal theory in a simple, computationally fast way; an open-source MATLAB implementatio...

    In this paper we study some stability criteria for some semilinear integral equations with a function as initial condition and with additive noise, which is a Young integral that could be a functional of fractional Brownian motion. Namely, we consider stability in the mean, asymptotic stability, stability, global stability and Mittag-Leffler stability. To do so, we use comparison results for fractional equations and an equation (in terms of Mittag-Leffler functions) whose family of solutions ...

    2001-01-01

    Consider solving the Dirichlet problem of Helmholtz equation on unbounded region R2\\Г with Г a smooth open curve in the plane. We use simple-layer potential to construct a solution. This leads to the solution of a logarithmic integral equation of the first kind for the Helmholtz equation. This equation is reformulated using a special change of variable, leading to a new first kind equation with a smooth solution function. This new equation is split into three parts. Then a quadrature method that takes special advantage of the splitting of the integral equation is used to solve the equation numerically. An error analysis in a Sobolev space setting is given. And numerical results show that fast convergence is clearly exhibited.

  12. On integrable rational potentials of the Dirac equation

    CERN Document Server

    2012-01-01

    The Dirac equation, when reducible to an ordinary second order linear equation, exhibits a form of quasi-integrability, i.e. exact solutions exist only for a particular subset of energies. The differential Galois theory can be used to identify the integrable cases, recover integrable rational potentials, explicit solutions and strictly rule out the remaining cases as non-integrable. The effectiveness of this approach is demonstrated by providing a new class of potentials for which the equation in question can be transformed to the Whittaker form.

  14. Integrable discretisations for a class of nonlinear Schrödinger equations on Grassmann algebras

    Grahovski, Georgi G.; Mikhailov, Alexander V.

    2013-12-01

    Integrable discretisations for a class of coupled (super) nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) type of equations are presented. The class corresponds to a Lax operator with entries in a Grassmann algebra. Elementary Darboux transformations are constructed. As a result, Grassmann generalisations of the Toda lattice and the NLS dressing chain are obtained. The compatibility (Bianchi commutativity) of these Darboux transformations leads to integrable Grassmann generalisations of the difference Toda and NLS equations. The resulting systems will have discrete Lax representations provided by the set of two consistent elementary Darboux transformations. For the two discrete systems obtained, initial value and initial-boundary problems are formulated.

  15. Radiation boundary condition and anisotropy correction for finite difference solutions of the Helmholtz equation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tam, Christopher K. W.; Webb, Jay C.

    1994-01-01

    In this paper finite-difference solutions of the Helmholtz equation in an open domain are considered. By using a second-order central difference scheme and the Bayliss-Turkel radiation boundary condition, reasonably accurate solutions can be obtained when the number of grid points per acoustic wavelength used is large. However, when a smaller number of grid points per wavelength is used excessive reflections occur which tend to overwhelm the computed solutions. Excessive reflections are due to the incompability between the governing finite difference equation and the Bayliss-Turkel radiation boundary condition. The Bayliss-Turkel radiation boundary condition was developed from the asymptotic solution of the partial differential equation. To obtain compatibility, the radiation boundary condition should be constructed from the asymptotic solution of the finite difference equation instead. Examples are provided using the improved radiation boundary condition based on the asymptotic solution of the governing finite difference equation. The computed results are free of reflections even when only five grid points per wavelength are used. The improved radiation boundary condition has also been tested for problems with complex acoustic sources and sources embedded in a uniform mean flow. The present method of developing a radiation boundary condition is also applicable to higher order finite difference schemes. In all these cases no reflected waves could be detected. The use of finite difference approximation inevita bly introduces anisotropy into the governing field equation. The effect of anisotropy is to distort the directional distribution of the amplitude and phase of the computed solution. It can be quite large when the number of grid points per wavelength used in the computation is small. A way to correct this effect is proposed. The correction factor developed from the asymptotic solutions is source independent and, hence, can be determined once and for all. The

    2015-01-01

    Non-linear entropy stability and a summation-by-parts framework are used to derive entropy stable wall boundary conditions for the three-dimensional compressible Navier-Stokes equations. A semi-discrete entropy estimate for the entire domain is achieved when the new boundary conditions are coupled with an entropy stable discrete interior operator. The data at the boundary are weakly imposed using a penalty flux approach and a simultaneous-approximation-term penalty technique. Although discontinuous spectral collocation operators on unstructured grids are used herein for the purpose of demonstrating their robustness and efficacy, the new boundary conditions are compatible with any diagonal norm summation-by-parts spatial operator, including finite element, finite difference, finite volume, discontinuous Galerkin, and flux reconstruction/correction procedure via reconstruction schemes. The proposed boundary treatment is tested for three-dimensional subsonic and supersonic flows. The numerical computations corroborate the non-linear stability (entropy stability) and accuracy of the boundary conditions.

  19. Master equations and the theory of stochastic path integrals

    CERN Document Server

    Weber, Markus F

    2016-01-01

    This review provides a pedagogic and self-contained introduction to master equations and to their representation by path integrals. We discuss analytical and numerical methods for the solution of master equations, keeping our focus on methods that are applicable even when stochastic fluctuations are strong. The reviewed methods include the generating function technique and the Poisson representation, as well as novel ways of mapping the forward and backward master equations onto linear partial differential equations (PDEs). Spectral methods, WKB approximations, and a variational approach have been proposed for the analysis of the PDE obeyed by the generating function. After outlining these methods, we solve the derived PDEs in terms of two path integrals. The path integrals provide distinct exact representations of the conditional probability distribution solving the master equations. We exemplify both path integrals in analysing elementary chemical reactions. Furthermore, we review a method for the approxima...

    The bound state spectrum and the associated reflection factors are determined for the sine-Gordon model with arbitrary integrable boundary condition by closing the bootstrap.

  1. Solvability of Nonlinear Langevin Equation Involving Two Fractional Orders with Dirichlet Boundary Conditions

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Bashir Ahmad

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available We study a Dirichlet boundary value problem for Langevin equation involving two fractional orders. Langevin equation has been widely used to describe the evolution of physical phenomena in fluctuating environments. However, ordinary Langevin equation does not provide the correct description of the dynamics for systems in complex media. In order to overcome this problem and describe dynamical processes in a fractal medium, numerous generalizations of Langevin equation have been proposed. One such generalization replaces the ordinary derivative by a fractional derivative in the Langevin equation. This gives rise to the fractional Langevin equation with a single index. Recently, a new type of Langevin equation with two different fractional orders has been introduced which provides a more flexible model for fractal processes as compared with the usual one characterized by a single index. The contraction mapping principle and Krasnoselskii's fixed point theorem are applied to prove the existence of solutions of the problem in a Banach space.

  2. Numerical Evaluation of CPV Boundary Integrals with Symmetrical Quadrature Schemes

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    马杭; 徐凯宇

    2003-01-01

    Stemming from the definition of the Cauchy principal values (CPV) integrals, a newly developed symmetrical quadrature scheme was proposed in the paper for the accurate numerical evaluation of the singular boundary integrals in the sense of CPV encountered in the boundary element method. In the case of inner-element singularities, the CPV integrals could be evaluated in a straightforward way by dividing the element into the symmetrical part and the remainder(s). And in the case of end-singularities, the CPV integrals could be evaluated simply by taking a tangential distance transformation of the integrand after cutting out a symmetrical tiny zone around the singular point. In both cases, the operations are no longer necessary before the numerical implementation, which involves the dull routine work to separate out singularities from the integral kernels. Numerical examples were presented for both the two-and the three-dimensional boundary integrals in elasticity. Comparing the numerical results with those by other approaches demonstrates the feasibility and the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.

  3. NUMERICAL BOUNDARY CONDITIONS FOR THE FAST SWEEPING HIGH ORDER WENO METHODS FOR SOLVING THE EIKONAL EQUATION

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Ling Huang; Chi-Wang Shu; Mengping Zhang

    2008-01-01

    High order fast sweeping methods have been developed recently in the literature to solve static Hamilton-Jacobi equations efficiently. Comparing with the first order fast sweeping methods, the high order fast sweeping methods are more accurate, but they often require additional numerical boundary treatment for several grid points near the boundary because of the wider numerical stencil. It is particularly important to treat the points near the inflow boundary accurately, as the information would flow into the computational domain and would affect global accuracy. In the literature, the numerical solution at these boundary points are either fixed with the exact solution, which is not always feasible, or computed with a first order discretization, which could reduce the global accuracy. In this paper, we discuss two strategies to handle the inflow boundary conditions. One is based on the numerical solutions of a first order fast sweeping method with several different mesh sizes near the boundary and a Richardson extrapolation, the other is based on a Lax-Wendroff type procedure to repeatedly utilizing the PDE to write the normal spatial derivatives to the inflow boundary in terms of the tangential derivatives, thereby obtaining high order solution values at the grid points near the inflow boundary. We explore these two approaches using the fast sweeping high order WENO scheme in [18] for solving the static Eikonal equation as a representative example. Numerical examples are given to demonstrate the performance of these two approaches.

  4. Implementation of higher-order absorbing boundary conditions for the Einstein equations

    Rinne, Oliver; Scheel, Mark A; Pfeiffer, Harald P

    2008-01-01

    We present an implementation of absorbing boundary conditions for the Einstein equations based on the recent work of Buchman and Sarbach. In this paper, we assume that spacetime may be linearized about Minkowski space close to the outer boundary, which is taken to be a coordinate sphere. We reformulate the boundary conditions as conditions on the gauge-invariant Regge-Wheeler-Zerilli scalars. Higher-order radial derivatives are eliminated by rewriting the boundary conditions as a system of ODEs for a set of auxiliary variables intrinsic to the boundary. From these we construct boundary data for a set of well-posed constraint-preserving boundary conditions for the Einstein equations in a first-order generalized harmonic formulation. This construction has direct applications to outer boundary conditions in simulations of isolated systems (e.g., binary black holes) as well as to the problem of Cauchy-perturbative matching. As a test problem for our numerical implementation, we consider linearized multipolar grav...

  5. Some results on the one-dimensional linear wave equation with van der Pol type nonlinear boundary conditions and the Korteweg-de Vries-Burgers equation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Feng, Zhaosheng

    Many physical phenomena can be described by nonlinear models. The last few decades have seen an enormous growth of the applicability of nonlinear models and of the development of related nonlinear concepts. This has been driven by modern computer power as well as by the discovery of new mathematical techniques, which include two contrasting themes: (i) the theory of dynamical systems, most popularly associated with the study of chaos, and (ii) the theory of integrable systems associated, among other things, with the study of solitons. In this dissertation, we study two nonlinear models. One is the 1-dimensional vibrating string satisfying wtt - wxx = 0 with van der Pol boundary conditions. We formulate the problem into an equivalent first order Hyperbolic system, and use the method of characteristics to derive a nonlinear reflection relation caused by the nonlinear boundary conditions. Thus, the problem is reduced to the discrete iteration problem of the type un+1 = F( un). Periodic solutions are investigated, an invariant interval for the Abel equation is studied, and numerical simulations and visualizations with different coefficients are illustrated. The other model is the Korteweg-de Vries-Burgers (KdVB) equation. In this dissertation, we proposed two new approaches: One is what we currently call First Integral Method, which is based on the ring theory of commutative algebra. Applying the Hilbert-Nullstellensatz, we reduce the KdVB equation to a first-order integrable ordinary differential equation. The other approach is called the Coordinate Transformation Method, which involves a series of variable transformations. Some new results on the traveling wave solution are established by using these two methods, which not only are more general than the existing ones in the previous literature, but also indicate that some corresponding solutions presented in the literature contain errors. We clarify the errors and instead give a refined result.

    The Darboux-dressing transformations developed in Degasperis and Lombardo (2007 J. Phys. A: Math. Theor. 40 961-77) are here applied to construct soliton solutions for a class of boomeronic-type equations. The vacuum (i.e. vanishing) solution and the generic plane wave solution are both dressed to yield one-soliton solutions. The formulae are specialized to the particularly interesting case of the resonant interaction of three waves, a well-known model which is of boomeronic type. For this equation a novel solution which describes three locked dark pulses (simulton) is introduced.

    In this paper exact 1D transparent boundary conditions (TBC) for the 2D parabolic wave equation with a linear or a quadratic dependence of the dielectric permittivity on the transversal coordinate are reported. Unlike the previously derived TBCs they contain only elementary functions. The obtained boundary conditions can be used to numerically solve the 2D parabolic equation describing the propagation of light in weakly bent optical waveguides and fibers including waveguides with variable curvature. They also are useful when solving the equivalent 1D Schr\\"odinger equation with a potential depending linearly or quadratically on the coordinate. The prospects and problems of discretization of the derived transparent boundary conditions are discussed.

    The authors present an energy absorbing non-reflecting boundary condition of Clayton-Engquist type for the elastic wave equation together with a discretization which is stable for any ratio of compressional to shear wave speed. They prove stability for a second order accurate finite-difference discretization of the elastic wave equation in three space dimensions together with a discretization of the proposed non-reflecting boundary condition. The stability proof is based on a discrete energy estimate and is valid for heterogeneous materials. The proof includes all six boundaries of the computational domain where special discretizations are needed at the edges and corners. The stability proof holds also when a free surface boundary condition is imposed on some sides of the computational domain.

    A new integrable and nonlinear partial differential equation (PDE) in 2+1 dimensions is obtained, by an asymptotically exact reduction method based on Fourier expansion and spatiotemporal rescaling, from the Kadomtsev{endash}Petviashvili equation. The integrability property is explicitly demonstrated, by exhibiting the corresponding Lax pair, that is obtained by applying the reduction technique to the Lax pair of the Kadomtsev{endash}Petviashvili equation. This model equation is likely to be of applicative relevance, because it may be considered a consistent approximation of a large class of nonlinear evolution PDEs. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}

  11. Dynamics and local boundary properties of the dawn-side magnetopause under conditions observed by Equator-S

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    M. W. Dunlop

    Full Text Available Magnetic field measurements, taken by the magnetometer experiment (MAM on board the German Equator-S spacecraft, have been used to identify and categorise 131 crossings of the dawn-side magnetopause at low latitude, providing unusual, long duration coverage of the adjacent magnetospheric regions and near magnetosheath. The crossings occurred on 31 orbits, providing unbiased coverage over the full range of local magnetic shear from 06:00 to 10:40 LT. Apogee extent places the spacecraft in conditions associated with intermediate, rather than low, solar wind dynamic pressure, as it processes into the flank region. The apogee of the spacecraft remains close to the magnetopause for mean solar wind pressure. The occurrence of the magnetopause encounters are summarised and are found to compare well with predicted boundary location, where solar wind conditions are known. Most scale with solar wind pressure. Magnetopause shape is also documented and we find that the magnetopause orientation is consistently sunward of a model boundary and is not accounted for by IMF or local magnetic shear conditions. A number of well-established crossings, particularly those at high magnetic shear, or exhibiting unusually high-pressure states, were observed and have been analysed for their boundary characteristics and some details of their boundary and near magnetosheath properties are discussed. Of particular note are the occurrence of mirror-like signatures in the adjacent magnetosheath during a significant fraction of the encounters and a high number of multiple crossings over a long time period. The latter is facilitated by the spacecraft orbit which is designed to remain in the near magnetosheath for average solar wind pressure. For most encounters, a well-ordered, tangential (draped magnetosheath field is observed and there is little evidence of large deviations in local boundary orientations.

    2010-01-01

    The paper aims at exactly solving the linear differential equation and the matrix Riccati equation with variable coefficients. Starting with the simplest structure of them, this article promotes the exponential function by introducing two maps with integral series: $\\mathcal{E}(X)$ and $\\mathcal{F}(X)$, which extend the important properties of exponential function: convergence, reversibility, and the relationship of determinant. Then,the article shows two approaches to the Riccati equation solving: (1)one is the Simplified Way: summed up the Riccati equation into the simplest form $\\frac{\\partial}{\\partial x}W+WPW-Q=0$, and gets the accurate solution;(2) the other is Matrix Way: directly deal with the general Riccati equation, and transform into the matrix linear differential equation. And then the solution could be further expresses with the elementary form with the particular solution. At the end, we can see that Riccati equation solving is somehow a particular case of linear differential equation when view...

    Fujita, Hagino; Ishibashi, Kazuhisa

    In recent years, induction-heating cookers have been disseminated explosively. It is wished to commercialize flexible and disposable food containers that are available for induction heating. In order to develop a good quality food container that is heated moderately, it is necessary to analyze accurately eddy currents induced in a thin metal plate. The integral equation method is widely used for solving induction-heating problems. If the plate thickness approaches zero, the surface integral equations on the upper and lower plate surfaces tend to become the same and the equations become ill conditioned. In this paper, firstly, we derive line integral equations from the boundary integral equations on the assumption that the electromagnetic fields in metal are attenuated rapidly compared with those along the metal surface. Next, so as to test validity of the line integral equations, we solve the eddy current induced in a thin metal container in induction heating and obtain power density given to the container and impedance characteristics of the heating coil. We compare computed results with those by FEM.

We are also interested in the study of the asymptotic behaviour of the solutions.

    2011-01-01

    The problem of optimal mass transport arises in numerous applications including image registration, mesh generation, reflector design, and astrophysics. One approach to solving this problem is via the Monge-Amp\\`ere equation. While recent years have seen much work in the development of numerical methods for solving this equation, very little has been done on the implementation of the transport boundary conditions. In this paper, we propose a method for solving the transport problem by iteratively solving a Monge-Amp\\`ere equation with Neumann boundary conditions. We present a new discretization for the equation, which converges to the viscosity solution. The resulting system is solved efficiently with Newton's method. We provide several challenging computational examples that demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency ($O(M)-O(M^{1.3})$ time) of the proposed method.

For stress-free boundary condition and zero flow density continuously across the free boundary, the global existence of spherically symmetric weak solutions is shown, and the regularity and long time behavior of global solution are investigated for spherically symmetric initial data with the total mass smaller than a critical mass.

    In this paper, we study a one-dimensional motion of viscous gas near vacuum. We are interested in the case that the gas is in contact with the vacuum at a finite interval. This is a free boundary problem for the one-dimensional isentropic Navier-Stokes equations, and the free boundaries are the interfaces separating the gas from vacuum, across which the density changes discontinuosly. Smoothness of the solutions and the uniqueness of the weak solutions are also discussed. The present paper extends results in Luo-Xin-Yang [12] to the jump boundary conditions case.

Finally the existence and uniqueness of solution for the original problem and the uniformly valid asymptotic estimation are discussed.

    The goal of this work is to study a model of the strongly damped wave equation with dynamic boundary conditions and nonlinear boundary/interior sources and nonlinear boundary/interior damping. First, applying the nonlinear semigroup theory, we show the existence and uniqueness of local in time solutions. In addition, we show that in the strongly damped case solutions gain additional regularity for positive times t>0. Second, we show that under some restrictions on the initial data and if the interior source dominates the interior damping term and if the boundary source dominates the boundary damping, then the solution grows as an exponential function. Moreover, in the absence of the strong damping term, we prove that the solution ceases to exists and blows up in finite time.

    2011-01-01

    A numerical method is devised to solve a class of linear boundary-value problems for one-dimensional parabolic equations degenerate at the boundaries. Feller theory, which classifies the nature of the boundary points, is used to decide whether boundary conditions are needed to ensure uniqueness, and, if so, which ones they are. The algorithm is based on a suitable preconditioned implicit finite-difference scheme, grid, and treatment of the boundary data. Second-order accuracy, unconditional stability, and unconditional convergence of solutions of the finite-difference scheme to a constant as the time-step index tends to infinity are further properties of the method. Several examples, pertaining to financial mathematics, physics, and genetics, are presented for the purpose of illustration.

    We develop a well-posedness theory for second order systems in bounded domains where boundary phenomena like glancing and surface waves play an important role. Attempts have previously been made to write a second order system consisting of n equations as a larger first order system. Unfortunately, the resulting first order system consists, in general, of more than 2n equations which leads to many complications, such as side conditions which must be satisfied by the solution of the larger firs...

  16. Imposing Neumann boundary condition on cosmological perturbation equations and trajectories of particles

    Science.gov (United States)

    Shenavar, Hossein

    2016-03-01

    We impose Neumann boundary condition to solve cosmological perturbation equations and we derive a modified Friedmann equation and a new lensing equation. To check the new lensing equation and the value of Neumann constant, a sample that contains ten strong lensing systems is surveyed. Except for one lens, masses of the other lenses are found to be within the constrains of the observational data. Furthermore, we argue that by using the concept of geometrodynamic clocks it is possible to modify the equation of motion of massive particles too. Also, a sample that includes 101 HSB and LSB galaxies is used to re-estimate the value of the Neumann constant and we found that this value is consistent with the prior evaluation from Friedmann and lensing equations. Finally, the growth of structure is studied by a Newtonian approach which resulted in a more rapid rate of the structure formation in matter dominated era.

In particular, we deduce that the Jacobian has finite moments of all order for a wide class of Gaussian process including fractional Brownian motion with Hurst parameter H>1/4. We remark on the relevance of such estimates to a number of significant open problems.

The method is to replace the kernel by a degenerate kernel defined on a finite dimensional subspace of piecewise Lagrange polynomials. Numerical accuracy of the method is tested by solving the two-body Lippmann-Schwinger equation with non-separable potentials, and the three-body Amado-Lovelace equation with separable two-body potentials.

  5. Integrable achiral D5-brane reflections and asymptotic Bethe equations

    CERN Document Server

    Correa, Diego H; Young, Charles A S

    2011-01-01

    We study the reflection of magnons from a D5-brane in the framework of the AdS/CFT correspondence. We consider two possible orientations of the D5-brane with respect to the reference vacuum state, namely vacuum states aligned along "vertical" and "horizontal" directions. We show that the reflections are of the achiral type. We also show that the reflection matrices satisfy the boundary Yang-Baxter equations for both orientations. In the horizontal case the reflection matrix can be interpreted in terms of a bulk S-matrix, S(p, -p), and factorizability of boundary scattering therefore follows from that of bulk scattering. Finally, we solve the nested coordinate Bethe ansatz for the system in the vertical case to find the Bethe equations. In the horizontal case, the Bethe equations are of the same form as those for the closed string.

    2013-01-01

    In this paper, we present a GPU-accelerated direct-sum boundary integral method to solve the linear Poisson-Boltzmann (PB) equation. In our method, a well-posed boundary integral formulation is used to ensure the fast convergence of Krylov subspace based linear algebraic solver such as the GMRES. The molecular surfaces are discretized with flat triangles and centroid collocation. To speed up our method, we take advantage of the parallel nature of the boundary integral formulation and parallelize the schemes within CUDA shared memory architecture on GPU. The schemes use only $11N+6N_c$ size-of-double device memory for a biomolecule with $N$ triangular surface elements and $N_c$ partial charges. Numerical tests of these schemes show well-maintained accuracy and fast convergence. The GPU implementation using one GPU card (Nvidia Tesla M2070) achieves 120-150X speed-up to the implementation using one CPU (Intel L5640 2.27GHz). With our approach, solving PB equations on well-discretized molecular surfaces with up ...

    A simple, versatile, and efficient computational technique has been developed for dynamic analysis of linear elastic beam and rod type of structures. Moreover, the method provides a rather general solution approach for two-point boundary value problems that are described by a single independent spatial variable. For structural problems, the method is implemented by a mixed state vector formulation of the differential equations, combined with an integrating matrix solution procedure. Highly accurate solutions are easily achieved with this approach. Example solutions are given for beam vibration problems including discontinuous stiffness and mass parameters, elastic restraint boundary conditions, concentrated inertia loading, and rigid body modes

  13. Accurate numerical resolution of transients in initial-boundary value problems for the heat equation

    CERN Document Server

    Flyer, N

    2003-01-01

    If the initial and boundary data for a PDE do not obey an infinite set of compatibility conditions, singularities will arise in the solution at the corners of the initial time-space domain. For dissipative equations, such as the 1-D heat equation or 1-D convection-diffusion equations, the impacts of these singularities are short lived. However, they can cause a very severe loss of numerical accuracy if we are interested in transient solutions. The phenomenon has been described earlier from a theoretical standpoint. Here, we illustrate it graphically and present a simple remedy which, with only little extra cost and effort, restores full numerical accuracy.

  14. Solution of the three-dimensional Helmholtz equation with nonlocal boundary conditions

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hodge, Steve L.; Zorumski, William E.; Watson, Willie R.

    1995-01-01

    The Helmholtz equation is solved within a three-dimensional rectangular duct with a nonlocal radiation boundary condition at the duct exit plane. This condition accurately models the acoustic admittance at an arbitrarily-located computational boundary plane. A linear system of equations is constructed with second-order central differences for the Helmholtz operator and second-order backward differences for both local admittance conditions and the gradient term in the nonlocal radiation boundary condition. The resulting matrix equation is large, sparse, and non-Hermitian. The size and structure of the matrix makes direct solution techniques impractical; as a result, a nonstationary iterative technique is used for its solution. The theory behind the nonstationary technique is reviewed, and numerical results are presented for radiation from both a point source and a planar acoustic source. The solutions with the nonlocal boundary conditions are invariant to the location of the computational boundary, and the same nonlocal conditions are valid for all solutions. The nonlocal conditions thus provide a means of minimizing the size of three-dimensional computational domains.

  20. Burgers equation with no-flux boundary conditions and its application for complete fluid separation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Watanabe, Shinya; Matsumoto, Sohei; Higurashi, Tomohiro; Ono, Naoki

    2016-09-01

    Burgers equation in a one-dimensional bounded domain with no-flux boundary conditions at both ends is proven to be exactly solvable. Cole-Hopf transformation converts not only the governing equation to the heat equation with an extra damping but also the nonlinear mixed boundary conditions to Dirichlet boundary conditions. The average of the solution v bar is conserved. Consequently, from an arbitrary initial condition, solutions converge to the equilibrium solution which is unique for the given v bar. The problem arises naturally as a continuum limit of a network of certain micro-devices. Each micro-device imperfectly separates a target fluid component from a mixture of more than one component, and its input-output concentration relationships are modeled by a pair of quadratic maps. The solvability of the initial boundary value problem is used to demonstrate that such a network acts as an ideal macro-separator, separating out the target component almost completely. Another network is also proposed which leads to a modified Burgers equation with a nonlinear diffusion coefficient.

    1991-01-01

    The Dirichlet problem has a very long history in mathematics and its importance in partial differential equations, harmonic analysis, potential theory and the applied sciences is well-known. In the last decade the Dirichlet problem with L2-boundary data has attracted the attention of several mathematicians. The significant features of this recent research are the use of weighted Sobolev spaces, existence results for elliptic equations under very weak regularity assumptions on coefficients, energy estimates involving L2-norm of a boundary data and the construction of a space larger than the usual Sobolev space W1,2 such that every L2-function on the boundary of a given set is the trace of a suitable element of this space. The book gives a concise account of main aspects of these recent developments and is intended for researchers and graduate students. Some basic knowledge of Sobolev spaces and measure theory is required.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Simultaneously, considering the viscous effect of material, damping of medium, and rotational inertia, we study a kind of more general Kirchhoff-type extensible beam equation utt-uxxtt+uxxxx-σ(∫0l‍(ux2dxuxx-ϕ(∫0l‍(ux2dxuxxt=q(x, in  [0,L]×R+ with the structural damping and the rotational inertia term. Little attention is paid to the longtime behavior of the beam equation under nonlinear boundary conditions. In this paper, under nonlinear boundary conditions, we prove not only the existence and uniqueness of global solutions by prior estimates combined with some inequality skills, but also the existence of a global attractor by the existence of an absorbing set and asymptotic compactness of corresponding solution semigroup. In addition, the same results also can be proved under the other nonlinear boundary conditions.

    Full Text Available In this paper, we consider the three-point boundary-value problem for the second order neutral functional differential equation $$ u''+ f(t,u_t, u'(t= 0, quad 0 leq tleq 1, $$ with the three-point boundary condition $u_0= phi$, $u(1 = u(eta$. Under suitable assumptions on the function $f$ we prove the existence, uniqueness and continuous dependence of solutions. As an application of the methods used, we study the existence of solutions for the same equation with a ``mixed" boundary condition $u_0 = phi, u(1 = alpha [u'(eta - u'(0]$, or with an initial condition $ u_0 = phi, u'(0 =0$. For the initial-value problem, the uniqueness and continuous dependence of solutions are also considered. Furthermore, the paper shows that the solution set of the initial-value problem is nonempty, compact and connected. Our approach is based on the fixed point theory.

    2011-04-01

    Full Text Available This study presents a generalized analytical solution for one-dimensional solute transport in finite spatial domain subject to arbitrary time-dependent inlet boundary condition. The governing equation includes terms accounting for advection, hydrodynamic dispersion, linear equilibrium sorption and first order decay processes. The generalized analytical solution is derived by using the Laplace transform with respect to time and the generalized integral transform technique with respect to the spatial coordinate. Several special cases are presented and compared to illustrate the robustness of the derived generalized analytical solution. Result shows an excellent agreement. The analytical solutions of the special cases derived in this study have practical applications. Moreover, the derived generalized solution which consists an integral representation is evaluated by the numerical integration to extend its usage. The developed generalized solution offers a convenient tool for further development of analytical solution of specified time-dependent inlet boundary conditions or numerical evaluation of the concentration field for arbitrary time-dependent inlet boundary problem.

    Dorey, P; Dorey, Patrick; Tateo, Roberto

    2000-01-01

    We exhibit a relationship between the massless $a_2^{(2)}$ integrable quantum field theory and a certain third-order ordinary differential equation, thereby extending a recent result connecting the massless sine-Gordon model to the Schrödinger equation. This forms part of a more general correspondence involving $A_2$-related Bethe ansatz systems and third-order differential equations. A non-linear integral equation for the generalised spectral problem is derived, and some numerical checks are performed. Duality properties are discussed, and a simple variant of the nonlinear equation is suggested as a candidate to describe the finite volume ground state energies of minimal conformal field theories perturbed by the operators $\\phi_{12}$, $\\phi_{21}$ and $\\phi_{15}$. This is checked against previous results obtained using the thermodynamic Bethe ansatz.

    Kempel, Leo C.; Volakis, John L.

    1992-01-01

    Conformal antenna arrays offer many cost and weight advantages over conventional antenna systems. In the past, antenna designers have had to resort to expensive measurements in order to develop a conformal array design. This was due to the lack of rigorous mathematical models for conformal antenna arrays. As a result, the design of conformal arrays was primarily based on planar antenna design concepts. Recently, we have found the finite element-boundary integral method to be very successful in modeling large planar arrays of arbitrary composition in a metallic plane. We are extending this formulation to conformal arrays on large metallic cylinders. In doing so, we will develop a mathematical formulation. In particular, we discuss the finite element equations, the shape elements, and the boundary integral evaluation. It is shown how this formulation can be applied with minimal computation and memory requirements.

    To find intrinsically different symmetry reductions and inequivalent group invariant solutions of the 2D unsteady incompressible boundary-layer equations, a two-dimensional optimal system is constructed which attributed to the classification of the corresponding Lie subalgebras. The comprehensiveness and inequivalence of the optimal system are shown clearly under different values of invariants. Then by virtue of the optimal system obtained, the boundary-layer equations are directly reduced to a system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) by only one step. It has been shown that not only do we recover many of the known results but also find some new reductions and explicit solutions, which may be previously unknown.

  7. High-Order Accurate Solutions to the Helmholtz Equation in the Presence of Boundary Singularities

    Science.gov (United States)

    Britt, Darrell Steven, Jr.

    Problems of time-harmonic wave propagation arise in important fields of study such as geological surveying, radar detection/evasion, and aircraft design. These often involve highfrequency waves, which demand high-order methods to mitigate the dispersion error. We propose a high-order method for computing solutions to the variable-coefficient inhomogeneous Helmholtz equation in two dimensions on domains bounded by piecewise smooth curves of arbitrary shape with a finite number of boundary singularities at known locations. We utilize compact finite difference (FD) schemes on regular structured grids to achieve highorder accuracy due to their efficiency and simplicity, as well as the capability to approximate variable-coefficient differential operators. In this work, a 4th-order compact FD scheme for the variable-coefficient Helmholtz equation on a Cartesian grid in 2D is derived and tested. The well known limitation of finite differences is that they lose accuracy when the boundary curve does not coincide with the discretization grid, which is a severe restriction on the geometry of the computational domain. Therefore, the algorithm presented in this work combines high-order FD schemes with the method of difference potentials (DP), which retains the efficiency of FD while allowing for boundary shapes that are not aligned with the grid without sacrificing the accuracy of the FD scheme. Additionally, the theory of DP allows for the universal treatment of the boundary conditions. One of the significant contributions of this work is the development of an implementation that accommodates general boundary conditions (BCs). In particular, Robin BCs with discontinuous coefficients are studied, for which we introduce a piecewise parameterization of the boundary curve. Problems with discontinuities in the boundary data itself are also studied. We observe that the design convergence rate suffers whenever the solution loses regularity due to the boundary conditions. This is

    Science.gov (United States)

    Homentcovschi, Dorel

    2008-01-01

    This paper gives a regular vector boundary integral equation for solving the problem of viscous scattering of a pressure wave by a rigid body. Firstly, single-layer viscous potentials and a generalized stress tensor are introduced. Correspondingly, generalized viscous double-layer potentials are defined. By representing the scattered field as a combination of a single-layer viscous potential and a generalized viscous double-layer potential, the problem is reduced to the solution of a vectorial Fredholm integral equation of the second kind. Generally, the vector integral equation is singular. However, there is a particular stress tensor, called pseudostress, which yields a regular integral equation. In this case, the Fredholm alternative applies and permits a direct proof of the existence and uniqueness of the solution. The results presented here provide the foundation for a numerical solution procedure. PMID:19865494

The equation can be interpreted as a model for the spread of infectious diseases (e.g., gonorrhea or any of the rhinovirus viruses) if x(t) is the proportion of infectives at time t and f(t,x(t)) is the proportion of new infectives per unit time.

  12. The Boundary Value Problem for Elliptic Equation in the Corner Domain

    CERN Document Server

    Zhidkov, E P

    2000-01-01

    This work is devoted to the studies of the solution behavior of the boundary value problem for a nonlinear elliptic equation in the corner domain. The formulation of the boundary value problem arises in magnitostatics when finding the magnetic field distribution by the method of two scalar potentials in the domain comprising ferromagnetic and vacuum. The problem nonlinearity is stipulated by the dependence of the medium properties (magnetic permeability) on the solution to be found. In connection with that the solution of such a problem has to be found by numerical methods, a question arises about the behavior of the boundary value problem solution around the angular point of the ferromagnetic. This work shows that if the magnetic permeability function meets certain requirments, the corresponding solution of the boundary value problem will have a limited gradient.

    Full Text Available Mixed initial-boundary value problem for telegraph equation in domain with variable borders is considered. On one part of domain’s border are the boundary conditions of the first type, on other part of the boundary are set boundary conditions of the second type. Besides, the sizes of area are variable. The solution of such problem demands development of special methods. With the help of consecutive application of procedure of construction waves reflected from borders of domain, it is possible to obtain the solution of this problem in quadratures. In addition, for construction of the waves reflected from mobile border, it is necessary to apply the procedure specially developed for these purposes.

  14. Solutions of the Schr\\"odinger equation, boundary condition at the origin, and theory of distributions

    CERN Document Server

    Cantelaube, Y C

    2012-01-01

    In a central potential the usual resolution of the Schr\\"odinger equation in spherical coordinates consists in determining the solutions R(r) or u(r) of the radial equations considered as the radial parts of the Schr\\"odinger equation. However, the solutions must be supplemented with the boundary condition u(0) = 0 in order to rule out singular solutions. There is still no consensus to justify this condition, with good reason. It is based on a misunderstanding that comes from the fact that the radial equation in terms of R(r) is derived from the Schr\\"odinger equation, and the radial equation in terms of u(r) from the former, by taking the Laplacians in the sense of the functions. By taking these Laplacians in the sense of the distributions, as it is required, we show that the radial equations are derived from the Schrodinger equation when their solutions are regular, but not when they are singular, so that the equations need not be supplemented with any supplementary condition such as u(0) = 0.

    Biondini, Gino; Fagerstrom, Emily; Prinari, Barbara

    2016-10-01

    We formulate the inverse scattering transform (IST) for the defocusing nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation with fully asymmetric non-zero boundary conditions (i.e., when the limiting values of the solution at space infinities have different non-zero moduli). The theory is formulated without making use of Riemann surfaces, and instead by dealing explicitly with the branched nature of the eigenvalues of the associated scattering problem. For the direct problem, we give explicit single-valued definitions of the Jost eigenfunctions and scattering coefficients over the whole complex plane, and we characterize their discontinuous behavior across the branch cut arising from the square root behavior of the corresponding eigenvalues. We pose the inverse problem as a Riemann-Hilbert Problem on an open contour, and we reduce the problem to a standard set of linear integral equations. Finally, for comparison purposes, we present the single-sheet, branch cut formulation of the inverse scattering transform for the initial value problem with symmetric (equimodular) non-zero boundary conditions, as well as for the initial value problem with one-sided non-zero boundary conditions, and we also briefly describe the formulation of the inverse scattering transform when a different choice is made for the location of the branch cuts.

    2009-01-01

    We examine the algebraic complete integrability of Lotka-Volterra equations in three dimensions. We restrict our attention to Lotka-Volterra systems defined by a skew symmetric matrix. We obtain a complete classification of such systems. The classification is obtained using Painleve analysis and more specifically by the use of Kowalevski exponents. The imposition of certain integrality conditions on the Kowalevski exponents gives necessary conditions for the algebraic integrability of the corresponding systems. We also show that the conditions are sufficient.

  18. Effect of the Lower Boundary Position of the Fourier Equation on the Soil Energy Balance

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    孙菽芬; 张霞

    2004-01-01

    In this study, the effect of the lower boundary position selection for the Fourier equation on heat transfer and energy balance in soil is evaluated. A detailed numerical study shows that the proper position of the lower boundary is critical when solving the Fourier equation by using zero heat flux as the lower boundary condition. Since the position defines the capacity of soil as a heat sink or source, which absorbs and stores radiation energy from the sky in summer and then releases the energy to the atmosphere in winter, and regulates the deep soil temperature distribution, the depth of the position greatly influences the heat balance within the soil as well as the interaction between the soil and the atmosphere. Based on physical reasoning and the results of numerical simulation, the proper depth of the position should be equal to approximately 3 times of the annual heat wave damping depth. For most soils, the proper lower boundary depth for the Fourier equation should be around 8 m to 15 m, depending on soil texture.

  19. Boundary value problem for one-dimensional fractional differential advection-dispersion equation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Khasambiev Mokhammad Vakhaevich

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available An equation commonly used to describe solute transport in aquifers has attracted more attention in recent years. After a formal study of some aspects of the advection-diffusion equation, basically from the mathematical point of view with the solution of a differential equation with fractional derivative, the main interest to this problem shifted onto physical aspects of the dynamical system, such as the total energy and the dynamical response. In this regard it should be pointed out that the interaction with environment is expressed in terms of stochastic arrow of time. This allows one also to reach a progress in one more issue. Formerly the equation of advection-diffusion was not obtained from any physical principles. However, mainly the success concerns linear fractional systems. In fact, there are many cases in which linear treatments are not sufficient. The more general systems described by nonlinear fractional differential equations have not been studied enough. The ordinary calculus brings out clearly that essentially new phenomena occur in nonlinear systems, which generally cannot occur in linear systems. Due to vast range of application of the fractional advection-dispersion equation, a lot of work has been done to find numerical solution and fundamental solution of this equation. The research on the analytical solution of initial-boundary problem for space-fractional advection-dispersion equation is relatively new and is still at an early stage of development. In this paper, we will take use of the method of variable separation to solve space-fractional advection-dispersion equation with initial boundary data.

    Costa, C. P.; Vilhena, M. T.; Moreira, D. M.; Tirabassi, T.

    We present a three-dimensional solution of the steady-state advection-diffusion equation considering a vertically inhomogeneous planetary boundary layer (PBL). We reach this goal applying the generalized integral transform technique (GITT), a hybrid method that had solved a wide class of direct and inverse problems mainly in the area of heat transfer and fluid mechanics. The transformed problem is solved by the advection-diffusion multilayer model (ADMM) method, a semi-analytical solution based on a discretization of the PBL in sub-layers where the advection-diffusion equation is solved by the Laplace transform technique. Numerical simulations are presented and the performances of the solution are compared against field experiments data.

    2014-12-01

    To eliminate the limitations of the conventional sound field separation methods which are only applicable to regular surfaces, a sound field separation method based on combined integral equations is proposed to separate sound fields directly in the spatial domain. In virtue of the Helmholtz integral equations for the incident and scattering fields outside a sound scatterer, combined integral equations are derived for sound field separation, which build the quantitative relationship between the sound fields on two arbitrary separation surfaces enclosing the sound scatterer. Through boundary element discretization of the two surfaces, corresponding systems of linear equations are obtained for practical application. Numerical simulations are performed for sound field separation on different shaped surfaces. The influences induced by the aspect ratio of the separation surfaces and the signal noise in the measurement data are also investigated. The separated incident and scattering sound fields agree well with the original corresponding fields described by analytical expressions, which validates the effectiveness and accuracy of the combined integral equations based separation method.

    Boundary inverse problems occupy an important place among the inverse problems of mathematical physics. They are connected with the problems of diagnosis, when additional measurements on one of the borders or inside the computational domain are necessary to restore the boundary regime in the other border, inaccessible to direct measurements. The boundary inverse problems belong to a class of conditionally correct problems, and therefore, their numerical solution requires the development of special computational algorithms. The paper deals with the solution of the boundary inverse problem for one-dimensional second-order parabolic equations, consisting in the restoration of boundary regime according to measurements inside the computational domain. For the numerical solution of the inverse problem it is proposed to use an analogue of a computational algorithm, proposed and developed to meet the challenges of identification of the right side of the parabolic equations in the works P.N.Vabishchevich and his students based on a special decomposition of solving the problem at each temporal layer. We present and discuss the results of a computational experiment conducted on model problems with quasi-solutions, including with random errors in the input data.

    A singular boundary value problem for a second-order linear integrodifferential equation with Volterra and non-Volterra integral operators is formulated and analyzed. The equation is defined on ℝ+, has a weak singularity at zero and a strong singularity at infinity, and depends on several positive parameters. Under natural constraints on the coefficients of the equation, existence and uniqueness theorems for this problem with given limit boundary conditions at singular points are proved, asymptotic representations of the solution are given, and an algorithm for its numerical determination is described. Numerical computations are performed and their interpretation is given. The problem arises in the study of the survival probability of an insurance company over infinite time (as a function of its initial surplus) in a dynamic insurance model that is a modification of the classical Cramer-Lundberg model with a stochastic process rate of premium under a certain investment strategy in the financial market. A comparative analysis of the results with those produced by the model with deterministic premiums is given.

    This paper is concerned with the existence and uniqueness of the entropy solution to the initial boundary value problem for the inviscid Burgers equation \\left\\{\\begin{array}{@{}l@{\\qquad}l@{}} u_t+\\big(\\frac{u^2}{2}\\big)_x=0 x\\gt0\\quad t\\gt0\\\\ u(x,0)=u_0(x) x\\geq0\\\\ u(0,t)=0 t\\geq0. \\end{array}\\right. To apply the method of vanishing viscosity to study the existence of the entropy solution, we first introduce the initial boundary value problem for the viscous Burgers equation, and as in Evans (1998 Partial Differential Equations (Providence, RI: American Mathematical Society) and Hopf (1950 Commun. Pure Appl. Math. 3 201-30), give the formula of the corresponding viscosity solutions by Hopf-Cole transformation. Secondly, we prove the convergence of the viscosity solution sequences and verify that the limiting function is an entropy solution. Finally, we give an example to show how our main result can be applied to solve the initial boundary value problem for the Burgers equation.

  6. On the numerical solution of the diffusion equation with a nonlocal boundary condition

    Full Text Available Parabolic partial differential equations with nonlocal boundary specifications feature in the mathematical modeling of many phenomena. In this paper, numerical schemes are developed for obtaining approximate solutions to the initial boundary value problem for one-dimensional diffusion equation with a nonlocal constraint in place of one of the standard boundary conditions. The method of lines (MOL semidiscretization approach is used to transform the model partial differential equation into a system of first-order linear ordinary differential equations (ODEs. The partial derivative with respect to the space variable is approximated by a second-order finite-difference approximation. The solution of the resulting system of first-order ODEs satisfies a recurrence relation which involves a matrix exponential function. Numerical techniques are developed by approximating the exponential matrix function in this recurrence relation. We use a partial fraction expansion to compute the matrix exponential function via Pade approximations, which is particularly useful in parallel processing. The algorithm is tested on a model problem from the literature.

  7. Integrated care in the daily work: coordination beyond organisational boundaries

    Full Text Available Objectives: In this paper, integrated care in an inter-organisational cooperative setting of in-home elderly care is studied. The aim is to explore how home care workers coordinate their daily work, identify coordination issues in situ and discuss possible actions for supporting seamless and integrated elderly care at home. Method: The empirical findings are drawn from an ethnographic workplace study of the cooperation and coordination taking place between home care workers in a Swedish county. Data were collected through observational studies, interviews and group discussions. Findings: The paper identifies a need to support two core issues. Firstly, it must be made clear how the care interventions that are currently defined as ‘self-treatment’ by the home health care should be divided. Secondly, the distributed and asynchronous coordination between all care workers involved, regardless of organisational belonging must be better supported. Conclusion: Integrated care needs to be developed between organisations as well as within each organisation. As a matter of fact, integrated care needs to be built up beyond organisational boundaries. Organisational boundaries affect the planning of the division of care interventions, but not the coordination during the home care process. During the home care process, the main challenge is the coordination difficulties that arise from the fact that workers are distributed in time and/or space, regardless of organisational belonging. A core subject for future practice and research is to develop IT tools that reach beyond formal organisational boundaries and processes while remaining adaptable in view of future structure changes.

  8. Global existence and exponential growth for a viscoelastic wave equation with dynamic boundary conditions

    KAUST Repository

    Gerbi, Stéphane

    2013-01-15

    The goal of this work is to study a model of the wave equation with dynamic boundary conditions and a viscoelastic term. First, applying the Faedo-Galerkin method combined with the fixed point theorem, we show the existence and uniqueness of a local in time solution. Second, we show that under some restrictions on the initial data, the solution continues to exist globally in time. On the other hand, if the interior source dominates the boundary damping, then the solution is unbounded and grows as an exponential function. In addition, in the absence of the strong damping, then the solution ceases to exist and blows up in finite time.

    1995-01-01

    One of the major applications of the domain decomposition time marching algorithm is the coupling of the Navier-Stokes systems with Boltzmann equations in order to compute transitional flows. Another important application is the coupling of a global Navier-Stokes problem with a local one in order to use different modelizations and/or discretizations. Both of these applications involve a global Navier-Stokes system with nonstandard boundary conditions. The purpose of this work is to prove, using the classical Leray-Schauder theory, that these boundary conditions are admissible and lead to a well posed problem.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2002-01-01

    The transport behavior of free boundary value problems for a class of generalized diffusion equations was studied. Suitable similarity transformations were used to convert the problems into a class of singular nonlinear two-point boundary value problems and similarity solutions were numerical presented for different representations of heat conduction function, convection function, heat flux function, and power law parameters by utilizing the shooting technique. The results revealed the flux transfer mechanism and the character as well as the effects of parameters on the solutions.

    2009-11-01

    Numerical schemes for hyperbolic conservation laws in 2-D on a Cartesian grid usually have the advantage of being easy to implement and showing good computational performances, without allowing the simulation of “real-world” problems on arbitrarily shaped domains. In this paper a numerical treatment of boundary conditions for the elastic-plastic wave equation is developed, which allows the simulation of problems on an arbitrarily shaped physical domain surrounded by a piece-wise smooth boundary curve, but using a PDE solver on a rectangular Cartesian grid with the afore-mentioned advantages.

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available In the present work, we study a multi-point boundary-value problem for an ordinary differential equation with matrix coefficients containing a spectral parameter in the boundary conditions. Assuming some regularity conditions, we show that the characteristic determinant has an infinite number of zeros, and specify their asymptotic behavior. Using the asymptotic behavior of Green matrix on contours expending at infinity, we establish the series expansion formula of sufficiently smooth functions in terms of residuals solutions to the given problem. This formula actually gives the completeness of root functions as well as the possibility of calculating the coefficients of the series.

  13. An efficient method for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations on irregular domains with no-slip boundary conditions, high order up to the boundary

    CERN Document Server

    Shirokoff, David

    2010-01-01

    Common efficient schemes for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations, such as projection or fractional step methods, have limited temporal accuracy as a result of matrix splitting errors, or introduce errors near the domain boundaries (which destroy uniform convergence to the solution). In this paper we recast the incompressible (constant density) Navier-Stokes equations (with the velocity prescribed at the boundary) as an equivalent system, for the primary variables velocity and pressure. We do this in the usual way away from the boundaries, by replacing the incompressibility condition on the velocity by a Poisson equation for the pressure. The key difference from the usual approaches occurs at the boundaries, where we use boundary conditions that unequivocally allow the pressure to be recovered from knowledge of the velocity at any fixed time. This avoids the common difficulty of an, apparently, over-determined Poisson problem. Since in this alternative formulation the pressure can be accurately and effi...

    The stability of second-order differential equations is studied by using their integrals. A system of second-order differential equations can be considered as a mechanical system with holonomic constraints. A conserved quantity of the mechanical system or a part of the system is obtained by using the Noether theory. It is possible that the conserved quantity becomes a Liapunov function and the stability of the system is proved by the Liapunov theorem.

    In this paper, we present a brief survey on the updated theory of backward stochas-tic Volterra integral equations (BSVIEs, for short). BSVIEs are a natural generalization of backward stochastic diff erential equations (BSDEs, for short). Some interesting motivations of studying BSVIEs are recalled. With proper solution concepts, it is possible to establish the corresponding well-posedness for BSVIEs. We also survey various comparison theorems for solutions to BSVIEs.

    We propose a set of nonlinear integral equations to describe the excited states of an integrable the spin-1 chain with anisotropy. The scaling dimensions, evaluated numerically in previous studies, are recovered analytically by using the equations. This result may be relevant to the study of the supersymmetric sine-Gordon model.

  18. Mixed direct-iterative methods for boundary integral formulations of continuum dielectric solvation models

    Corcelli, S.A.; Kress, J.D.; Pratt, L.R.

    1995-08-07

    This paper develops and characterizes mixed direct-iterative methods for boundary integral formulations of continuum dielectric solvation models. We give an example, the Ca{sup ++}{hor_ellipsis}Cl{sup {minus}} pair potential of mean force in aqueous solution, for which a direct solution at thermal accuracy is difficult and, thus for which mixed direct-iterative methods seem necessary to obtain the required high resolution. For the simplest such formulations, Gauss-Seidel iteration diverges in rare cases. This difficulty is analyzed by obtaining the eigenvalues and the spectral radius of the non-symmetric iteration matrix. This establishes that those divergences are due to inaccuracies of the asymptotic approximations used in evaluation of the matrix elements corresponding to accidental close encounters of boundary elements on different atomic spheres. The spectral radii are then greater than one for those diverging cases. This problem is cured by checking for boundary element pairs closer than the typical spatial extent of the boundary elements and for those cases performing an ``in-line`` Monte Carlo integration to evaluate the required matrix elements. These difficulties are not expected and have not been observed for the thoroughly coarsened equations obtained when only a direct solution is sought. Finally, we give an example application of hybrid quantum-classical methods to deprotonation of orthosilicic acid in water.

    2008-01-01

    We introduce the linear operators of fractional integration and fractional differentiation in the framework of the Riemann-Liouville fractional calculus. Particular attention is devoted to the technique of Laplace transforms for treating these operators in a way accessible to applied scientists, avoiding unproductive generalities and excessive mathematical rigor. By applying this technique we shall derive the analytical solutions of the most simple linear integral and differential equations of fractional order. We show the fundamental role of the Mittag-Leffler function, whose properties are reported in an ad hoc Appendix. The topics discussed here will be: (a) essentials of Riemann-Liouville fractional calculus with basic formulas of Laplace transforms, (b) Abel type integral equations of first and second kind, (c) relaxation and oscillation type differential equations of fractional order.

  20. Yang-Baxter Maps, Discrete Integrable Equations and Quantum Groups

    CERN Document Server

    2015-01-01

    For every quantized Lie algebra there exists a map from the tensor square of the algebra to itself, which by construction satisfies the set-theoretic Yang-Baxter equation. This map allows one to define an integrable discrete quantum evolution system on quadrilateral lattices, where local degrees of freedom (dynamical variables) take values in a tensor power of the quantized Lie algebra. The corresponding equations of motion admit the zero curvature representation. The commuting Integrals of Motion are defined in the standard way via the Quantum Inverse Problem Method, utilizing Baxter's famous commuting transfer matrix approach. All elements of the above construction have a meaningful quasi-classical limit. As a result one obtains an integrable discrete Hamiltonian evolution system, where the local equation of motion are determined by a classical Yang-Baxter map and the action functional is determined by the quasi-classical asymptotics of the universal R-matrix of the underlying quantum algebra.

    2007-01-01

    An important modern method in analytical mechanics for finding the integral, which is called the field-method, is used to research the solution of a differential equation of the first order. First, by introducing an intermediate variable, a more complicated differential equation of the first order can be expressed by two simple differential equations of the first order, then the field-method in analytical mechanics is introduced for solving the two differential equations of the first order. The conclusion shows that the field-method in analytical mechanics can be fully used to find the solutions of a differential equation of the first order, thus a new method for finding the solutions of the first order is provided.

    Biala, T A; Jator, S N

    2015-01-01

    In this article, the boundary value method is applied to solve three dimensional elliptic and hyperbolic partial differential equations. The partial derivatives with respect to two of the spatial variables (y, z) are discretized using finite difference approximations to obtain a large system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) in the third spatial variable (x). Using interpolation and collocation techniques, a continuous scheme is developed and used to obtain discrete methods which are applied via the Block unification approach to obtain approximations to the resulting large system of ODEs. Several test problems are investigated to elucidate the solution process.

    In a recent article, we constructed a hierarchy B{sub L} of outer boundary conditions for Einstein's field equations with the property that, for a spherical outer boundary, it is perfectly absorbing for linearized gravitational radiation up to a given angular momentum number L. In this paper, we generalize B{sub L} so that it can be applied to fairly general foliations of spacetime by space-like hypersurfaces and general outer boundary shapes and further, we improve B{sub L} in two steps: (i) we give a local boundary condition C{sub L}which is perfectly absorbing including first-order contributions in 2M/R of curvature corrections for quadrupolar waves (where M is the mass of the spacetime and R is a typical radius of the outer boundary) and which significantly reduces spurious reflections due to backscatter, and (ii) we give a non-local boundary condition D{sub L} which is exact when first-order corrections in 2M/R for both curvature and backscatter are considered, for quadrupolar radiation.

    In this work a non-local initial-boundary value problem for a non-homogeneous one-dimensional heat equation is con-sidered. The domain under consideration is a rectangle. The classical initial condition with respect to t is put. A non-local periodic boundary condition with respect to a spatial variable x is put. It is well-known that a solution of problem can be constructed in the form of convergent orthonormal series according to eigenfunctions of a spectral problem for an operator of multiple differentiation with periodic boundary conditions. Therefore Green's function can be also written in the form of an infinite series with respect to trigonometric functions (Fourier series). For classical first and second initial-boundary value problems there also exists a second representation of the Green's function by Jacobi function. In this paper we find the representation of the Green's function of the non-local initial-boundary value problem with periodic boundary conditions in the form of series according to exponents.

    2016-07-01

    A discrete matrix spectral problem is presented and the hierarchy of discrete integrable systems is derived. Their Hamiltonian structures are established. As to the discrete integrable system, nonlinearization of the spatial parts of the Lax pairs and the adjoint Lax pairs generate a new integrable symplectic map. Based on the theory, a new integrable symplectic map and a family of finite-dimension completely integrable systems are given. Especially, two explicit equations are obtained under the Bargmann constraint. Finally, the symmetry of the discrete equation is provided according to the recursion operator and the seed symmetry. Although the solutions of the discrete equations have been gained by many methods, there are few articles that solving the discrete equation via the symmetry. So the solution of the discrete lattice equation is obtained through the symmetry theory.

    2017-04-01

    This review provides a pedagogic and self-contained introduction to master equations and to their representation by path integrals. Since the 1930s, master equations have served as a fundamental tool to understand the role of fluctuations in complex biological, chemical, and physical systems. Despite their simple appearance, analyses of master equations most often rely on low-noise approximations such as the Kramers–Moyal or the system size expansion, or require ad-hoc closure schemes for the derivation of low-order moment equations. We focus on numerical and analytical methods going beyond the low-noise limit and provide a unified framework for the study of master equations. After deriving the forward and backward master equations from the Chapman–Kolmogorov equation, we show how the two master equations can be cast into either of four linear partial differential equations (PDEs). Three of these PDEs are discussed in detail. The first PDE governs the time evolution of a generalized probability generating function whose basis depends on the stochastic process under consideration. Spectral methods, WKB approximations, and a variational approach have been proposed for the analysis of the PDE. The second PDE is novel and is obeyed by a distribution that is marginalized over an initial state. It proves useful for the computation of mean extinction times. The third PDE describes the time evolution of a ‘generating functional’, which generalizes the so-called Poisson representation. Subsequently, the solutions of the PDEs are expressed in terms of two path integrals: a ‘forward’ and a ‘backward’ path integral. Combined with inverse transformations, one obtains two distinct path integral representations of the conditional probability distribution solving the master equations. We exemplify both path integrals in analysing elementary chemical reactions. Moreover, we show how a well-known path integral representation of averaged observables can be recovered

    In this paper, we study the existence and multiplicity of solutions of the operator equation Kfu=u in the real Hilbert space L2(G). Under certain conditions on the linear operator K, we establish the conditions on f which are able to guarantee that the operator equation has at least one solution, a unique solution, and infinitely many solutions, respectively. The monotone operator principle and the critical point theory are employed to discuss this problem, respectively. In argument, quadratic root operator K1/2 and its properties play an important role. As an application, we investigate the existence and multiplicity of solutions to fourth-order boundary value problems for ordinary differential equations with two parameters, and give some new existence results of solutions.

    Linear integral and integro-differential equations of Fredholm and Volterra types have been successfully treated using radial basis function (RBF) networks in previous works. This paper deals with the case of a system of integral equations of Fredholm and Volterra types with a normalized radial basis function (NRBF) network. A novel learning algorithm is developed for the training of NRBF networks in which the BFGS backpropagation (BFGS-BP) least-squares optimization method as a recursive model is used. In the approach presented here, a trial solution is given by an NRBF network of incremental architecture with a set of unknown parameters. Detailed learning algorithms and concrete examples are also included.

    2016-08-01

    The surface integral equations method is used to analyse the surface plasmon resonance position in a metal island film formed by non-interacting axisymmetrical prolate/oblate hemispheroids placed on a dielectric substrate. The approach is verified via the comparison of results obtained for a hemisphere on a substrate with the ones obtained using the multipole expansion method. The preference of the integral equations method is in obtaining a simple final analytical expression for a particle polarizability in which any dielectric function of a metal can be substituted. Such simple formulae for the hemispherical particle on the substrate and calculated dependences of the hemispheroid resonant wavelength on its aspect ratio are presented.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Abstract This paper deals with the existence and asymptotic behavior of the solutions to the singularly perturbed second-order nonlinear differential equations. For example, feedback control problems, such as the steady states of the thermostats, where the controllers add or remove heat, depending upon the temperature detected by the sensors in other places, can be interpreted with a second-order ordinary differential equation subject to a nonlocal four-point boundary condition. Singular perturbation problems arise in the heat transfer problems with large Peclet numbers. We show that the solutions of mathematical model, in general, start with fast transient which is the so-called boundary layer phenomenon, and after decay of this transient they remain close to the solution of reduced problem with an arising new fast transient at the end of considered interval. Our analysis relies on the method of lower and upper solutions.

    2007-01-01

    A generalized single step stepwise mutation model (SMM) is developed that takes into account an arbitrary initial state to a certain partial difference equation. This is solved in both the approximate continuum limit and the more exact discrete form. A time evolution model is developed for Y DNA or mtDNA that takes into account the reflective boundary modeling minimum microsatellite length and the original difference equation. A comparison is made between the more widely known continuum Gaussian model and a discrete model, which is based on modified Bessel functions of the first kind. A correction is made to the SMM model for the probability that two individuals are related that takes into account a reflecting boundary modeling minimum microsatellite length. This method is generalized to take into account the general n-step model and exact solutions are found. A new model is proposed for the step distribution.

Moreover, we prove that the scheme is uniquely solvable and convergent with the convergence rate of order two in a discrete L2-norm. A simple numerical example is given to illustrate the efficiency of the proposed method.

  18. Continuum and Discrete Initial-Boundary Value Problems and Einstein's Field Equations

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Olivier Sarbach

    2012-08-01

    Full Text Available Many evolution problems in physics are described by partial differential equations on an infinite domain; therefore, one is interested in the solutions to such problems for a given initial dataset. A prominent example is the binary black-hole problem within Einstein's theory of gravitation, in which one computes the gravitational radiation emitted from the inspiral of the two black holes, merger and ringdown. Powerful mathematical tools can be used to establish qualitative statements about the solutions, such as their existence, uniqueness, continuous dependence on the initial data, or their asymptotic behavior over large time scales. However, one is often interested in computing the solution itself, and unless the partial differential equation is very simple, or the initial data possesses a high degree of symmetry, this computation requires approximation by numerical discretization. When solving such discrete problems on a machine, one is faced with a finite limit to computational resources, which leads to the replacement of the infinite continuum domain with a finite computer grid. This, in turn, leads to a discrete initial-boundary value problem. The hope is to recover, with high accuracy, the exact solution in the limit where the grid spacing converges to zero with the boundary being pushed to infinity. The goal of this article is to review some of the theory necessary to understand the continuum and discrete initial boundary-value problems arising from hyperbolic partial differential equations and to discuss its applications to numerical relativity; in particular, we present well-posed initial and initial-boundary value formulations of Einstein's equations, and we discuss multi-domain high-order finite difference and spectral methods to solve them.

  19. Modified quasi-boundary value method for Cauchy problems of elliptic equations with variable coefficients

    2011-08-01

    Full Text Available In this article, we study a Cauchy problem for an elliptic equation with variable coefficients. It is well-known that such a problem is severely ill-posed; i.e., the solution does not depend continuously on the Cauchy data. We propose a modified quasi-boundary value regularization method to solve it. Convergence estimates are established under two a priori assumptions on the exact solution. A numerical example is given to illustrate our proposed method.

    2015-01-01

    Numerical solution of the Poisson equation in metallic enclosures, open at one or more ends, is important in many practical situations such as High Power Microwave (HPM) or photo-cathode devices. It requires imposition of a suitable boundary condition at the open end. In this paper, methods for solving the Poisson equation are investigated for various charge densities and aspect ratios of the open ends. It is found that a mixture of second order and third order local asymptotic boundary condition (ABC) is best suited for large aspect ratios while a proposed non-local matching method, based on the solution of the Laplace equation, scores well when the aspect ratio is near unity for all charge density variations, including ones where the centre of charge is close to an open end or the charge density is non-localized. The two methods complement each other and can be used in electrostatic calculations where the computational domain needs to be terminated at the open boundaries of the metallic enclosure.

    The unwinding behavior of thin cable has been studied in textile engineering. Recently, J.W. Lee derived transient equations of motion for an unwinding cable. Thus, this paper discusses numerical simulations of unwinding behavior as compared to experiments. The cable unwinding system is modeled using cylindrical coordinates, and Hamilton's principle in an open system is used to represent the mass change of the cable in the control volume. In a transient equation of unwinding motion, the transient-state response is affected by two point boundary conditions, such as the guide-eyelet point and the lift-off point. In previous research, only the unwinding velocity at the guide-eyelet point defined the boundary. Here, a boundary condition at the lift-off point is also considered in the unwinding velocity along with the unwinding length of cable in the control volume. The results of this study show that transient equations of motion should be derived by considering angular acceleration because of time-varying angular velocity.

    Full Text Available We consider a mixed type of nonlinear integral equation (MNLIE of the second kind in the space C[0,T]×L2(Ω,T<1. The Volterra integral terms (VITs are considered in time with continuous kernels, while the Fredholm integral term (FIT is considered in position with singular general kernel. Using the quadratic method and separation of variables method, we obtain a nonlinear system of Fredholm integral equations (NLSFIEs with singular kernel. A Toeplitz matrix method, in each case, is then used to obtain a nonlinear algebraic system. Numerical results are calculated when the kernels take a logarithmic form or Carleman function. Moreover, the error estimates, in each case, are then computed.

  7. The generalized method of moments for electromagnetic integral equations: New formulations and applications

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dault, Daniel Lawrence

    The moment method is the predominant approach for the solution of electromagnetic boundary integral equations. Traditional moment method discretizations rely on the projection of solution currents onto basis sets that must satisfy strict continuity properties to model physical currents. The choice of basis sets is further restricted by the tight coupling of traditional functional descriptions to the underlying geometrical approximation of the scattering or radiating body. As a result, the choice of approximation function spaces and geometry discretizations for a given boundary integral equation is significantly limited. A quasi-meshless partition of unity based method called the Generalized Method of Moments (GMM) was recently introduced to overcome some of these limitations. The GMM partition of unity scheme affords automatic continuity of solution currents, and therefore permits the use of a much wider range of basis functions than traditional moment methods. However, prior to the work in this thesis, GMM was limited in practical applicability because it was only formulated for a few geometry types, could not be accurately applied to arbitrary scatterers, e.g. those with mixtures of geometrical features, and was not amenable to traditional acceleration methodologies that would permit its application to electrically large problems. The primary contribution of this thesis is to introduce several new GMM formulations that significantly expand the capabilities of the method to make it a practical, broadly applicable approach for solving boundary integral equations and overcoming the limitations inherent in traditional moment method discretizations. Additionally, several of the topics covered address continuing open problems in electromagnetic boundary integral equations with applicability beyond GMM. The work comprises five broad contributions. The first is a new GMM formulation capable of mixing both GMM-type basis sets and traditional basis sets in the same

    We describe new types of numerical integration algorithms developed by the authors. The main aim of the algorithms is to numerically integrate differential equations which evolve on geometric objects, such as the rotation group. The algorithms provide iterates which lie on the prescribed geometric object, either exactly, or to some prescribed accuracy, independent of the order of the algorithm. This paper describes applications of these algorithms to the evolution of the attitude of a rigid body.

  11. A boundary integral method for a dynamic, transient mode I crack problem with viscoelastic cohesive zone

    KAUST Repository

    Leise, Tanya L.

    2009-08-19

    We consider the problem of the dynamic, transient propagation of a semi-infinite, mode I crack in an infinite elastic body with a nonlinear, viscoelastic cohesize zone. Our problem formulation includes boundary conditions that preclude crack face interpenetration, in contrast to the usual mode I boundary conditions that assume all unloaded crack faces are stress-free. The nonlinear viscoelastic cohesive zone behavior is motivated by dynamic fracture in brittle polymers in which crack propagation is preceeded by significant crazing in a thin region surrounding the crack tip. We present a combined analytical/numerical solution method that involves reducing the problem to a Dirichlet-to-Neumann map along the crack face plane, resulting in a differo-integral equation relating the displacement and stress along the crack faces and within the cohesive zone. © 2009 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.

  13. Painlevé equations, elliptic integrals and elementary functions

    Żołądek, Henryk; Filipuk, Galina

    2015-02-01

    The six Painlevé equations can be written in the Hamiltonian form, with time dependent Hamilton functions. We present a rather new approach to this result, leading to rational Hamilton functions. By a natural extension of the phase space one gets corresponding autonomous Hamiltonian systems with two degrees of freedom. We realize the Bäcklund transformations of the Painlevé equations as symplectic birational transformations in C4 and we interpret the cases with classical solutions as the cases of partial integrability of the extended Hamiltonian systems. We prove that the extended Hamiltonian systems do not have any additional algebraic first integral besides the known special cases of the third and fifth Painlevé equations. We also show that the original Painlevé equations admit the first integrals expressed in terms of the elementary functions only in the special cases mentioned above. In the proofs we use equations in variations with respect to a parameter and Liouville's theory of elementary functions.

  14. An integrable semi-discretization of the Boussinesq equation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zhang, Yingnan; Tian, Lixin

    2016-10-01

    In this paper, we present an integrable semi-discretization of the Boussinesq equation. Different from other discrete analogues, we discretize the 'time' variable and get an integrable differential-difference system. Under a standard limitation, the differential-difference system converges to the continuous Boussinesq equation such that the discrete system can be used to design numerical algorithms. Using Hirota's bilinear method, we find a Bäcklund transformation and a Lax pair of the differential-difference system. For the case of 'good' Boussinesq equation, we investigate the soliton solutions of its discrete analogue and design numerical algorithms. We find an effective way to reduce the phase shift caused by the discretization. The numerical results coincide with our analysis.

    2005-01-01

    The quasi-Shannon interval wavelet is constructed based on the interpolation wavelet theory, and an adaptive precise integration method, which is based on extrapolation method is presented for nonlinear ordinary differential equations (ODEs). And then, an adaptive interval wavelet precise integration method (AIWPIM) for nonlinear partial differential equations(PDEs) is proposed. The numerical results show that the computational precision of AIWPIM is higher than that of the method constructed by combining the wavelet and the 4th Runge-Kutta method, and the computational amounts of these two methods are almost equal. For convenience, the Burgers equation is taken as an example in introducing this method, which is also valid for more general cases.

  19. Numerical Approximation of Boundary Control for the Wave Equation - with Application to an Inverse Problem

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Mariegaard, Jesper Sandvig

    We consider a control problem for the wave equation: Given the initial state, find a specific boundary condition, called a control, that steers the system to a desired final state. The Hilbert uniqueness method (HUM) is a mathematical method for the solution of such control problems. It builds...... on the duality between the control system and its adjoint system, and these systems are connected via a so-called controllability operator. In this project, we are concerned with the numerical approximation of HUM control for the one-dimensional wave equation. We study two semi-discretizations of the wave...... equation: a linear finite element method (L-FEM) and a discontinuous Galerkin-FEM (DG-FEM). The controllability operator is discretized with both L-FEM and DG-FEM to obtain a HUM matrix. We show that formulating HUM in a sine basis is beneficial for several reasons: (i) separation of low and high frequency...

    1978-01-01

    A fourth-order method is presented for calculating numerical solutions to parabolic, partial differential equations in two variables or ordinary differential equations. The method is the natural extension of the second-order Keller Box Scheme to fourth order and is demonstrated with application to the incompressible, laminar and turbulent boundary-layer equations for both attached and separated flows. The efficiency of the present method is compared with other higher-order methods; namely, the Keller Box Scheme with Richardson extrapolation, the method of deferred corrections, the three-point spline methods, and a modified finite-element method. For equivalent accuracy, numerical results show the present method to be more efficient than the other higher-order methods for both laminar and turbulent flows.
