Publication# Reduced basis multiscale finite element methods for elliptic problems

Abstract

In this paper, we propose reduced basis multiscale finite element methods (RB-MsFEM) for elliptic problems with highly oscillating coefficients. The method is based on multiscale finite element methods with local test functions that encode the oscillatory behavior ([4, 14]). For uniform rectangular meshes, the local oscillating test functions are represented by a reduced basis method, parameterizing the center of the elements. For triangular elements, we introduce a slightly different approach. By exploring over-sampling of the oscillating test functions, initially introduced to recover a better approximations of the global harmonic coordinate map, we first build the reduced basis on uniform rectangular elements containing the original triangular elements and then restrict the oscillating test function to the triangular elements. These techniques are also generalized to the case where the coefficients dependent on additional independent parameters. The analysis of the proposed methods is supported by various numerical results, obtained on regular and unstructured grids.

Euler method

In mathematics and computational science, the Euler method (also called the forward Euler method) is a first-order numerical procedure for solving ordinary differential equations (ODEs) with a given initial value. It is the most basic explicit method for numerical integration of ordinary differential equations and is the simplest Runge–Kutta method. The Euler method is named after Leonhard Euler, who first proposed it in his book Institutionum calculi integralis (published 1768–1870).

Iterative method

In computational mathematics, an iterative method is a mathematical procedure that uses an initial value to generate a sequence of improving approximate solutions for a class of problems, in which the n-th approximation is derived from the previous ones. A specific implementation with termination criteria for a given iterative method like gradient descent, hill climbing, Newton's method, or quasi-Newton methods like BFGS, is an algorithm of the iterative method.

Fermat's theorem (stationary points)

In mathematics, Fermat's theorem (also known as interior extremum theorem) is a method to find local maxima and minima of differentiable functions on open sets by showing that every local extremum of the function is a stationary point (the function's derivative is zero at that point). Fermat's theorem is a theorem in real analysis, named after Pierre de Fermat. By using Fermat's theorem, the potential extrema of a function , with derivative , are found by solving an equation in .
