Variations on Hermite methods for wave propagation

26 Sep 2015  ·  Vargas Arturo, Chan Jesse, Hagstrom Thomas, Warburton Tim ·

Hermite methods, as introduced by Goodrich et al., combine Hermite interpolation and staggered (dual) grids to produce stable high order accurate schemes for the solution of hyperbolic PDEs. We introduce three variations of this Hermite method which do not involve time evolution on dual grids... Computational evidence is presented regarding stability, high order convergence, and dispersion/dissipation properties for each new method. Hermite methods may also be coupled to discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods for additional geometric flexibility. An example illustrates the simplification of this coupling of this coupling for the Hermite methods. read more
