Lecture 9 Analysis of von Neumann Series Introduction In the applications to heat and mass transfer the discrete time dependent models have the form yk1 A yk b Under stability conditions on the time step the solution would converge to the solution of the steady state problem y A y b One condition that ensured this was when A converged to the zero matrix the yk converges to y We would like to be more precise about the term converge De nition The in nity norm of the vector x is a real number E maxl x l where 1 S 139 S n 1 The in nity norm of the square matrix A aij is IIAIIEmIaleawl J Example

Like the geometric series of single numbers the iterative scheme A y b can be expressed as a summation via recursion yk1 Ayk b AAyk391bb Azyk391 Ab b A2A yk392 b Ab b A3yk392 A2 A1 Ib Ak1y0 Ak Ib 1 De nition The summation I Ak and the series I Ak are generalizations of the geometric series and they are often referred to as the von Neumann series Previously we showed if Ak converges to the zero matrix then yk1 A yk b must converge to the solution of y A y b which is also a solution of I 7 Ay b If I 7 A has an inverse this and line 1 suggest that the von Neumann series must converge to the inverse ofI 7 A Ifthe norm of A is less than 1 then all this is true 1AykerandletysatisfyyAyb Ifthenorm Theorem Consider the scheme yk ofA is less than one then 1 yk1 A yk b converges to y A y b 2 I 7 A has an inverse and 3 I Ak converges to the inverse ofI 7 A Proof of 1 yk y Ayk 7 y Apply property 4 of the norm as follows lly yll W ygt S Ayk yll WVW d IIAIIZ lly yll k1 s quotA y Because the norm of A is less than one the right side must go to zero This forces the norm of the error to go to zero Proof of 2 This requires some additional information from matrix algebra a square matrix B has an inverse matrix if and only if Bx 0 implies x 0 Let B I 7A and suppose Bx 0 Then 0 Bx I 7 Ax Ix 7 Ax so that x Ax If x 7 0 then by property 1 0 Apply the norm to both sides ofx Ax and use property 4 to get MdeMWl Now divide by the norm of x to get a contradiction to the assumption that the norm of A is strictly less than one Proof of 3 By the associative and distributive properties of matrices we have I AI AAk IIAAk AIAAk I A Multiply both sides by the inverse of I 7 A to get I AAk I A391I Ak1 1 A 1 I I Arm 1 AAk I A 1 I A 1Ak1 Apply property 5 of the norm to get quotI A Ak I A 1quot1 AVA s

wire with the heat loss through the lateral surface It will be assumed to be directly proportional to the change in time the lateral surface area and to the difference in the surrounding temperature and the temperature in the wire Let csur be the proportionality constant which measures insulation Let r be the radius of the wire so that the lateral surface area of a small wire segment is 21trh If usur is the surrounding temperature of the wire then the heat loss through the small lateral area is csur At 21trh usur ui Heat loss or gain from a source such as electrical current and from left and right diffusion will remain the same as in the previous lecture Let er Kpc AIAXZ and AX L n1 and combine the above Explicit Finite Difference Model of Heat Transfer uik1 Atpc f csur 2r usur 0cui1k
