## Time discretisation of monotone nonlinear evolution problems by the discontinuous Galerkin method

### BIT Numerical Mathematics (2011-09-01) 51: 581-607 , September 01, 2011

A class of discontinuous Galerkin methods is studied for the time discretisation of the initial-value problem for a nonlinear first-order evolution equation that is governed by a monotone, coercive, and hemicontinuous operator. The numerical solution is shown to converge towards the weak solution of the original problem. Furthermore, well-posedness of the time-discrete problem as well as a priori error estimates for sufficiently smooth exact solutions are studied.

## Short-time existence theory toward stability for nonlinear parabolic systems

### Journal of Evolution Equations (2015-06-01) 15: 403-456 , June 01, 2015

We establish existence of classical solutions for nonlinear parabolic systems in divergence form on $${\mathbb{R}^n}$$ , under mild regularity assumptions on coefficients in the problem, and under the assumption of Hölder continuous initial conditions. Our analysis is motivated by the study of stability for stationary and traveling wave solutions arising in such systems. In this setting, large time bounds obtained by pointwise semigroup techniques are often coupled with appropriate short time bounds in order to close an iteration based on Duhamel-type integral equations, and our analysis gives precisely the required short time bounds. This development both clarifies previous applications of this idea (by Zumbrun and Howard) and establishes a general result that covers many additional cases.

## Operator Splitting Methods with Error Estimator and Adaptive Time-Stepping. Application to the Simulation of Combustion Phenomena

### Splitting Methods in Communication, Imaging, Science, and Engineering (2016-01-01): 627-641 , January 01, 2016

Operator splitting techniques were originally introduced with the main objective of saving computational costs. A multi-physics problem is thus split in subproblems of different nature with a significant reduction of the algorithmic complexity and computational requirements of the numerical solvers. Nevertheless, splitting errors are introduced in the numerical approximations due to the separate evolution of the split subproblems and can compromise a reliable simulation of the coupled dynamics. In this chapter we present a numerical technique to estimate such splitting errors on the fly and dynamically adapt the splitting time steps according to a user-defined accuracy tolerance. The method applies to the numerical solution of time-dependent stiff PDEs, illustrated here by propagating laminar flames investigated in combustion applications.

## The dynamics of elastic closed curves under uniform high pressure

### Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations (2008-12-01) 33: 493-521 , December 01, 2008

We consider the dynamics of an inextensible elastic closed wire in the plane under uniform high pressure. In 1967, Tadjbakhsh and Odeh (J. Math. Anal. Appl. 18:59–74, 1967) posed a variational problem to determine the shape of a buckled elastic ring under uniform pressure. In order to comprehend a dynamics of the wire, we consider the following two mathematical questions: (i) can we construct a gradient flow for the Tadjbakhsh–Odeh functional under the inextensibility condition?; (ii) what is a behavior of the wire governed by the gradient flow near every critical point of the Tadjbakhsh–Odeh variational problem? For (i), first we derive a system of equations which governs the gradient flow, and then, give an affirmative answer to (i) by solving the system involving fourth order parabolic equations. For (ii), we first prove a stability and instability of each critical point by considering the second variation formula of the Tadjbakhsh–Odeh functional. Moreover, we give a lower bound of its Morse index. Finally we prove a dynamical aspects of the wire near each equilibrium state.

## Decay estimates for “anisotropic” viscous Hamilton-Jacobi equations in ℝ N

### Nonlinear Evolution Equations and Related Topics (2004-01-01): 27-37 , January 01, 2004

The large time behaviour of the *L*^{q}-norm of nonnegative solutions to the “anisotropic” viscous Hamilton-Jacobi equation
$$
{u_{t}} - \Delta u + {\sum\limits_{{i = 1}}^{m} {|{u_{{xi}}}|} ^{{Pi}}} = 0 in {\mathbb{R}_{ + }} x {\mathbb{R}^{N}},
$$
is studied for *q* = 1 and *q* = ∞, where *m* ∈ {1,...,*N*} and *p*_{i} for *i* ∈ {1,...,*m*}. The limit of the*L*^{1}-norm is identified, and temporal decay estimates for the *L*^{∞}-norm are obtained, according to the values of the *p*_{i}’s. The main tool in our approach is the derivation of L^{∞}-decay estimates for
$$
\nabla ({u^{\alpha }}),\alpha \in (0,1]
$$
, by a Bernstein technique inspired by the ones developed by Bénilan for the porous medium equation.

## On a Caginalp Phase-Field System with Two Temperatures and Memory

### Milan Journal of Mathematics (2017-01-20): 1-27 , January 20, 2017

The Caginalp phase-field system has been proposed in [4] as a simple mathematical model for phase transition phenomena. In this paper, we are concerned with a generalization of this system based on the Gurtin-Pipkin law with two temperatures for heat conduction with memory, apt to describe transition phenomena in nonsimple materials. The model consists of a parabolic equation governing the order parameter which is linearly coupled with a nonclassical integrodifferential equation ruling the evolution of the thermodynamic temperature of the material. Our aim is to construct a robust family of exponential attractors for the associated semigroup, showing the stability of the system with respect to the collapse of the memory kernel. We also study the spatial behavior of the solutions in a semi-infinite cylinder, when such solutions exist.

## A one-dimensional model of cell diffusion and aggregation, incorporating volume filling and cell-to-cell adhesion

### Journal of Mathematical Biology (2008-06-18) 58: 395-427 , June 18, 2008

We develop and analyse a discrete model of cell motility in one dimension which incorporates the effects of volume filling and cell-to-cell adhesion. The formal continuum limit of the model is a nonlinear diffusion equation with a diffusivity which can become negative if the adhesion coefficient is sufficiently large. This appears to be related to the presence of spatial oscillations and the development of plateaus (pattern formation) in numerical solutions of the discrete model. A combination of stability analysis of the discrete equations and steady-state analysis of the limiting PDE (and a higher-order correction thereof) can be used to shed light on these and other qualitative predictions of the model.

## Regularity of Transition Fronts in Nonlocal Dispersal Evolution Equations

### Journal of Dynamics and Differential Equations (2016-03-11): 1-32 , March 11, 2016

It is known that solutions of nonlocal dispersal evolution equations do not become smoother in space as time elapses. This lack of space regularity would cause a lot of difficulties in studying transition fronts in nonlocal equations. In the present paper, we establish some general criteria concerning space regularity of transition fronts in nonlocal dispersal evolution equations with a large class of nonlinearities, which allows the applicability of various techniques for reaction–diffusion equations to nonlocal equations, and hence serves as an initial and fundamental step for further studying various important qualitative properties of transition fronts such as stability, uniqueness and asymptotic speeds. We also prove the existence of continuously differentiable and increasing interface location functions, which give a better characterization of the propagation of transition fronts and are of great technical importance.

## Nonlinear degenerate parabolic equations with time-dependent singular potentials for Baouendi-Grushin vector fields

### Acta Mathematica Sinica, English Series (2015-01-01) 31: 123-139 , January 01, 2015

In this paper, we are concerned with the following three types of nonlinear degenerate parabolic equations with time-dependent singular potentials:
$$\begin{array}{*{20}c}
{\frac{{\partial u^q }}
{{\partial t}} = \nabla _\alpha \cdot \left( {\left\| z \right\|^{ - p\gamma } \left| {\nabla _\alpha u} \right|^{p - 2} \nabla _\alpha u} \right) + V(z,t)u^{p - 1} ,} \\
{\frac{{\partial u^q }}
{{\partial t}} = \nabla _\alpha \cdot \left( {\left\| z \right\|^{ - 2\gamma } \nabla _\alpha u^m } \right) + V(z,t)u^m ,} \\
{\frac{{\partial u^q }}
{{\partial t}} = u^\mu \nabla _\alpha \cdot \left( {u^\tau \left| {\nabla _\alpha u} \right|^{p - 2} \nabla _\alpha u} \right) + V(z,t)u^{p - 1 + \mu + \tau } } \\
\end{array}$$
in a cylinder Ω × (0, *T*) with initial condition *u* (*z*, 0) = *u*_{0} (*z*) ≥ 0 and vanishing on the boundary *∂*Ω × (0, T), where Ω is a Carnot-Carathéodory metric ball in ℝ^{d+k} and the time-dependent singular potential function is *V* (*z, t*) ∈ *L*_{loc}^{1}
(Ω × (0, *T*)). We investigate the nonexistence of positive solutions of these three problems and present our results on nonexistence.

## Finite element approximation of spatially extended predator–prey interactions with the Holling type II functional response

### Numerische Mathematik (2007-10-01) 107: 641-667 , October 01, 2007

We study the numerical approximation of the solutions of a class of nonlinear reaction–diffusion systems modelling predator–prey interactions, where the local growth of prey is logistic and the predator displays the Holling type II functional response. The fully discrete scheme results from a finite element discretisation in space (with lumped mass) and a semi-implicit discretisation in time. We establish a priori estimates and error bounds for the semi discrete and fully discrete finite element approximations. Numerical results illustrating the theoretical results and spatiotemporal phenomena are presented in one and two space dimensions. The class of problems studied in this paper are real experimental systems where the parameters are associated with real kinetics, expressed in nondimensional form. The theoretical techniques were adapted from a previous study of an idealised reaction–diffusion system (Garvie and Blowey in Eur J Appl Math 16(5):621–646, 2005).
