Publication# MATHICSE Technical Report : A priori error analysis of the finite element heterogenenous multiscale method for the wave equation in heterogenenous media over long time

Abstract

A fully discrete a priori analysis of the finite element heterogenenous multiscale method (FE-HMM) introduced in [A. Abdulle, M. Grote, C. Stohrer, MultiscaleModel. Simul. 2014] for the wave equation with highly oscillatory coefficients over long time is presented. A sharpa priori convergence rate for the numerical method is derived for long time intervals. The effective model over long time is a Boussinesq-type equation that has been shown to approximate the one-dimensional multiscale wave equation with ε-periodic coefficients up to timeO(ε−2) in [Lamacz, Math. Models Methods Appl. Sci., 2011]. In this paper we also revisit this result by deriving and analysing a family of effective Boussinesq-type equations for the approximation of the multiscale wave equation that depends on the normalization chosen for certain micro functions used to define the macroscopic models.

Numerical stability

In the mathematical subfield of numerical analysis, numerical stability is a generally desirable property of numerical algorithms. The precise definition of stability depends on the context. One is numerical linear algebra and the other is algorithms for solving ordinary and partial differential equations by discrete approximation. In numerical linear algebra, the principal concern is instabilities caused by proximity to singularities of various kinds, such as very small or nearly colliding eigenvalues.

Numerical methods for ordinary differential equations

Numerical methods for ordinary differential equations are methods used to find numerical approximations to the solutions of ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Their use is also known as "numerical integration", although this term can also refer to the computation of integrals. Many differential equations cannot be solved exactly. For practical purposes, however – such as in engineering – a numeric approximation to the solution is often sufficient. The algorithms studied here can be used to compute such an approximation.

Numerical analysis

Numerical analysis is the study of algorithms that use numerical approximation (as opposed to symbolic manipulations) for the problems of mathematical analysis (as distinguished from discrete mathematics). It is the study of numerical methods that attempt at finding approximate solutions of problems rather than the exact ones. Numerical analysis finds application in all fields of engineering and the physical sciences, and in the 21st century also the life and social sciences, medicine, business and even the arts.
