Uniformly Accurate Methods for Klein-Gordon type Equations

Baumstark, Simon

Abstract (englisch):
The main contribution of this thesis is the development of a novel class of uniformly accurate methods for Klein-Gordon type equations.
Klein-Gordon type equations in the non-relativistic limit regime, i.e., $c\gg 1$, are numerically very challenging to treat, since the solutions are highly oscillatory in time. Standard Gautschi-type methods suffer from severe time step restrictions as they require a CFL-condition $c^2\tau<1$ with time step size $\tau$ to resolve the oscillations. Within this thesis we overcome this difficulty by introducing limit integrators, which allows us to reduce the highly oscillatory problem to the integration of a non-oscillatory limit system. This procedure allows error bounds of order $\mathcal{O}(c^{-2}+\tau^2)$ without any step size restrictions. Thus, these integrators are very efficient in the regime $c\gg 1$. However, limit integrators fail for small values of $c$.
In order to derive numerical schemes that work well for small as well as for large $c$, we use the ansatz of "twisted variables", which allows us to develop uniformly accurate methods with respect to $c$. In particular, we ... mehr
