Recent Advances in the Numerical Solution of Hamiltonian Partial Differential Equations

Barletti, Luigi, Brugnano, Luigi, Frasca-Caccia, Gianluca, Iavernaro, Luigi (2016) Recent Advances in the Numerical Solution of Hamiltonian Partial Differential Equations. In: AIP Conference Proceedings. 1776 (020002). pp. 1-8. IOP Institute of Physics (doi:10.1063/1.4965308) (KAR id:58071)


In this paper, we study recent results in the numerical solution of Hamiltonian partial differential equations (PDEs), by means of energy-conserving methods in the class of Line Integral Methods, in particular, the Runge-Kutta methods named Hamiltonian Boundary Value Methods (HBVMs). We show that the use of energy-conserving methods, able to conserve a discrete counterpart of the Hamiltonian functional (which derives from a proper space semi-discretization), confers more robustness to the numerical solution of such problems.
