An energy stable conservative method is developed for the Cahn-Hilliard (CH) equation with the degenerate mobility. The CH equation is discretized in space with the mass conserving symmetric interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin (SIPG) method. The resulting semi-discrete nonlinear system of ordinary differential equations are solved in time by the unconditionally energy stable average vector field (AVF) method. We prove that the AVF method preserves the energy decreasing property of the fully discretized CH equation. Numerical results for the quartic double-well and the logarithmic potential functions with constant and degenerate mobility confirm the theoretical convergence rates, accuracy and the performance of the proposed approach.

Karasözen, Bülent; Sariaydin-Filibelioglu, Ayse; Yücel, Hamdullah (2018-05-01)
In this paper, we investigate numerical solution of Allen-Cahn equation with constant and degenerate mobility, and with polynomial and logarithmic energy functionals. We discretize the model equation by symmetric interior penalty Galerkin (SIPG) method in space, and by average vector field (AVF) method in time. We show that the energy stable AVF method as the time integrator for gradient systems like the Allen-Cahn equation satisfies the energy decreasing property for fully discrete scheme. Numerical result...
Energy preserving model order reduction of the nonlinear Schrodinger equation

An energy preserving reduced order model is developed for two dimensional nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NLSE) with plane wave solutions and with an external potential. The NLSE is discretized in space by the symmetric interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin (SIPG) method. The resulting system of Hamiltonian ordinary differential equations are integrated in time by the energy preserving average vector field (AVF) method. The mass and energy preserving reduced order model (ROM) is constructed by proper orth...

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.
Discontinuous dynamics with grazing points
Akhmet, Marat (2016-09-01)
Discontinuous dynamical systems with grazing solutions are discussed. The group property, continuation of solutions, continuity and smoothness of solutions are thoroughly analyzed. A variational system around a grazing solution which depends on near solutions is constructed. Orbital stability of grazing cycles is examined by linearization. Small parameter method is extended for analysis of grazing orbits, and bifurcation of cycles is observed in an example. Linearization around an equilibrium grazing point ...
