Finite Difference Illethod 55 8 Finite difference methods for parabolic partial differential equations 81 Introduction A linear parabolic PDE has the following form m Lu where L is a linear elliptic differential operator We list some examples below I One dimensional heat equation with a source m um fct 81 The dimension is referred to the space variable even though there are two independent variables a and t I The general one dimensional second order partial differential equations the following form ac u 2bc uu Cac u lower order terms fc i If 2 an E U in the entire domain then the equation is parabolic I A general heat equation in any dimensions can be written as m Vu Vu fxt 82 where is called the heat conductivity fxt is called a source term including a sink as well I A diffusion and advection equation has the following form m V Vu WVufxt where V Vu is the diffusion term and w Va is called the advection term I A canonical form of a diffusion and reaction equation is m V Vu fxtu The non linear source term is called a reaction term I A steady state solution meaning m U of a parabolic PDE is an elliptic PDE 56 Z Li 82 Initial and boundary conditions and dynamic stability For time dependent problems7 we should have an initial condition7 usually at t 07 that is7 ux U u0x is given We also need boundary conditions as well As an example7 for one dimensional heat equation m um7 a lt a lt b we should have boundary conditions at a a and a b7 and an initial condition at t 0 There is consistency condition at 10 and 60 For example7 if a Dirichlet boundary condition is prescribed at a a and a I such that uat 91t and ub t 926 then the consistency condition is mom 97107 and u0b 92 The dynamical stability The fundamental solution for one dimensional heat equation is m an is Egg The solution is uniformly bounded However7 for the backward heat equation7 m rm if uc 0 07 then limtnoc Maxi 00 We call the solution is dynamically unstable if Maxi is not uniformly bounded In other words7 we can not find a positive constant such that 3 C There are some applications of unstable problems7 sometimes called blow up problems We will not discuss how to solve those dynamically unstable problems numerically here We will only concentrate dynamically stable problems Some commonly used finite difference methods will be discussed in this section are listed below I the forward7 backward Euler s methods I the Crank Nicolson and the 0 method a the method of line MOL if a good ODE solver can be applied a the alternating directional implicit ADI method for high dimensional problems We can use the finite difference methods for elliptic problems to take care of the spa tial discretization and the boundary conditions The crucial discussion here is the time discretization In terms of the stability of numerical methods7 we will use the Fourier transformation and the von Neumann stability analysis 83 The Euler s method Consider the heat equation m gnu fct

i01m h a m T tkzkm k01m Atzg However7 we should know that we can not use arbitrary At or n for explicit methods because of the stability concerns The second step is to approximate the derivatives with finite difference formulas We know how to discretize the spatial derivatives Let us try different finite difference formulas for the time derivative Forward Euler s method FTCT Mini tk At Mini tk At

order of At higher Remark 82 If fct E U and is a constant then m n and nu 613 g Wan and the local truncation error is m t Wm 1 2 0 At2 114 85 2 12 Therefore if is a constant we can choose At to get 0h4At2 0h4 0At2 order of accuracy without increase computational cornpleacity This is signi cant for the explicit method If we try the numerical method with different At and check the error against a problem that we know its exact solution7 we see the method works for some At and blows up for some other At Since the method is consistent7 it has something to do with the stability Intuitively7 we can see that to prevent the errors in om getting amplified7 we should set mm 112 lt A lt i 12 1 or t 2g 8 6 Finite Difference Illethod 59 The backward Euler s method BW CT If we use the backward

The backward Euler s method is consistent The discretization error is still 0At 12 Question Can we choose At to increase the order of accuracy M1 k11 1 S However7 we can not get u with a few simple algebraic operations because all ui are coupled together We need to solve the following tri diagonal system in order to get the approximate solution at time level k 1 1 211 u of U At ff 11ng u 1 211 u

accurate in time Such a numerical method is called an implicit time marching method because the solution at time level k 1 are coupled together What is the advantage of the backward Euler s method It is stable for any choice of At For one dimensional problems7 the computational cost is only slightly more than the explicit Euler s method if we can use an ef cient tridiagonal solver 84 The method of line MOL If there is a good solver for ordinary differential equations systems7 we can use the method of line MOL to solve the parabolic partial differential equations Given a general parabolic equation of the form what Luct fct where L is an elliptic operator Let Lh be a finite difference operator acting on a grid an a ih We can form a semi discrete system of ordinary differential equations of the 60 Z Li following form 9U139 9t In other words we only discretize the spatial variable For the heat equation with a source I Lama 11 M u f we have L L 5 the discretize system of ODE is 9U1t i

dy a I fyatu gt40 2 yo 811 The MOL is especially useful for non linear PDEs of the form m f mt For linear problems we typically have dy 7 A 6 dt y where A is a matrix and c is a vector Both A and c may depend on i There are many ef cient solvers for a system of ODES Most of them are based on high order Runge Kutta methods with adaptive time steps For example we can use ODE suits in Matlab and dsodej which is available through Netlz39b in Fortran It is important to know that the ODE system om the MOL is typically stiff meaning that the eigenvalues of A has very different scales For example for the heat equation the eigenvalues are between 01 and 01 12 In Matlab we can call the ODE solver using the format 1 y ode23s yfunmol 0 tfina1 yo The solution in the last row of y which can be extracted using mrnc sizey ysol ymr is the approximate solution at time t Lfinal To define the ODE system of the MOL we should create a Matlab file yfun molm whose contends contain the following

are two matlab functions for the boundary condition at a a and a I and is the source term The initial condition can be defined as global m h x for i12m1 y0i u0xi end where u0c is a Matlab function of the initial condition 85 The CrankNicolson scheme The time step constraint At h22 for the explicit Euler s method is generally consid ered as a severe restriction If h 001 and the nal time is T 107 and 1007 we need 2107 steps The backward Euler s method does not have the time step constraint but it is only first order accurate If we want second order accuracy 0012 we need to take At 0012 Can we derive a nite difference scheme which is second order accurate both in time without compromise the stability and computational complexity The answer is the Crank Nicolson scheme The Crank Nicolson scheme is based on the following lemma which can be proved easily using the Taylor expansion Lemma 81 Let 45t be a function that has continuous rst order derivative that is 45t E 01 then A At At 2 45a

order implicit scheme that the coef cient matrix is diagonally dominant or symmetric positivenegative definite due to the advection term One solution is to use implicit scheme for the diffusion term and an explicit scheme for the advection term The scheme has the following form om time level t 6 to tk w W 39 thk Vh 39 W Uk Vb 39 VWWLI 4 1quot 83943 where w WM 2 g ltwvtu1k w vtu 844 The time step

PDES We know that the steady state solution of a parabolic PDE is the solution of the corre sponding elliptic PDE For example7 the steady state solution of the parabolic PDE m V Vu wu fxt is the solution to the elliptic PDE V Vu wufx 0 if the limit fx 2 fxu t exists The initial condition is irrevalent to the steady state solution But the boundary condition is There are some advantages of this approach especially for some non linear problems in which the solution is not unique Using this approach7 we can control the variation in the intermediate solutions The linear system of equations are more diagonally dominant Since we only care about the steady state solution7 we prefer to use implicit methods with large time steps The accuracy in time in unimportant
