Numerical solution of the Fisher’s equation with discontinous Galerkin method

Özsoy, Fehmi
In this thesis, the Fisher’s equation is discretized in space with the symmetric interior point discontinuous Galerkin (SDIPG). As time integrator Kahan’s method is used, which is n efficient linearly implicit time integrator for PDE with quadratic nonlinearities like the Fisher’s equation. Numerical results for the SIPG method, Kahan’s method and mid-point method confirm the theoretically predicted convergence orders in space and time. Travelling waves with steep fronts are numerically well resolved in reaction dominated regimes.

Aktas, M; Sever, Ramazan (2005-01-01)
Exact solution of the Schrodinger equation with deformed ring-shaped potential is obtained in the parabolic and spherical coordinates. The Nikiforov-Uvarov method is used in the solution. Eigenfunctions and corresponding energy eigenvalues are calculated analytically. The agreement of our results is good.
Numerical solution of semi-linear advection-diffusion-reaction equations by discontinuous galerkin methods
Yıldız, Süleyman; Karasözen, Bülent; Department of Scientific Computing (2016)
IIn this thesis, we study splitting methods for semi-linear advection-diffusion-reaction (ADR) equations which are discretized by the symmetric interior penalty Galerkin (SIPG) method in space. For the time integration Rosenbrock methods are used with Strang splitting. The linear system of equations are solved iteratively by preconditioned generalized minimum residual method (GMRES). Numerical experiments for ADR equations with different type nonlinearities demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed appr...
Exact solution of Schrodinger equation for Pseudoharmonic potential
Sever, Ramazan; TEZCAN, CEVDET; Aktas, Metin; Yesiltas, Oezlem (2008-02-01)
Exact solution of Schrodinger equation for the pseudoharmonic potential is obtained for an arbitrary angular momentum. The energy eigenvalues and corresponding eigenfunctions are calculated by Nikiforov-Uvarov method. Wavefunctions are expressed in terms of Jacobi polynomials. The energy eigenvalues are calculated numerically for some values of l and n with n <= 5 for some diatomic molecules.
Time-Space Adaptive Method of Time Layers for the Advective Allen-Cahn Equation
UZUNCA, MURAT; Karasözen, Bülent; Sariaydin-Filibelioglu, Ayse (2015-09-18)
We develop an adaptive method of time layers with a linearly implicit Rosenbrock method as time integrator and symmetric interior penalty Galerkin method for space discretization for the advective Allen-Cahn equation with nondivergence-free velocity fields. Numerical simulations for convection dominated problems demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of the adaptive algorithm for resolving the sharp layers occurring in interface problems with small surface tension.
Numerical Modeling of Electromagnetic Scattering from Periodic Structures by Transformation Electromagnetics
ÖZGÜN, ÖZLEM; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2016-09-22)
The transformation electromagnetics is applied to the modeling of electromagnetic scattering from periodic structures in conjunction with the finite element method with periodic boundary conditions. In a unit cell of periodic structure, a uniform mesh is used over a flat surface and the arbitrary periodic surface is modeled by a coordinate transformation. The major advantage of this approach is that arbitrary geometries can be handled by using a single and simple mesh. Therefore, repeated computations (such...
