### ENO and WENO scheme for HJ equation (non uniform grid)

I want to code ENO-LF scheme for Hamilton Jacobi equation, in particular for $\phi_t+H(\phi_x)=0 , \phi(x,0)=cos(\pi(x-x_0))$ , $x\in[-1, 1]$ where $H(v)=\frac{(v+1)^2}{2}$ and periodic BC. I see ...

### Is this mesh refinement procedure correct?

Hello, I am using the following coarse mesh of size 7. I am integrating using the control-volume approach in which I use difference between the fluxes at the edges of CV. As you can see that in the ...

### Adaptive Finite Element Method - Laplace

I'm currently attempting to turn my code for solving the laplace equation using finite element approximations into an adaptive one using the dual weighted residual as my error estimator: i.e. my ...

### Flux at coarse-fine mesh grid interface?

I am trying to solve one dimensional inviscid Burger's equation using adaptive mesh refinement. This is the PDE: $$\frac{\delta U}{\delta t} + \frac{\delta F}{\delta x} = 0$$ where the flux F of the ...

### How to discretize Burger's equation?

I am trying to solve the very simple one dimensional burgers equation which is: $$\frac{\delta U}{\delta t} + \frac{\delta F}{\delta x} = 0$$ where the flux F of some variable U is defined as F= \...

I am working on solving complex system of 2D PDEs governing the behaviour of plasma in a gas lamp during discharge. Recent tests have shown that because of steep gradients in temperature field and ...

### Conservation at grid interface in adaptive mesh refinement

I am using adaptive mesh refinement to solve one dimensional inviscid Burgers equation. However I am facing some difficulty to handle grid interfaces which are not uniform (coarse-fine grid interface)....

### Adaptive mesh refinement basic conceptual problem

I am a beginner in adaptive mesh refinement (AMR). After I am done with the first two papers by Dr. Marsha Berger, I was trying to write my own code for a problem which has a parabolic partial ...

### How can I compare errors in PDE solvers with non-uniform grids?

Is there a standard approach to testing codes with refined regions? Specifically, I am interested in testing whether the refinement is working correctly. For the sake of simplicity, let's consider a (...

### Adaptive mesh refinement algorithms and the difference between AMR and moving mesh

I'm working on my thesis and a part of it has to do with adaptive mesh refinement. As a computer science major, I'm not too familiar with this field. The best way I can put my knowledge of AMR is: I ...

### Fast methods to solve an elliptic PDE if high accuracy is needed only in part of the domain

Does someone know a method to get cheap approximation of harmonic problems (and possibly local approximations)? Let me explain: I need to compute the solution of an harmonic problem ...

### Adaptive Mesh vs Uniform Mesh for multiple source/boundary/initial Data

I'm going to ask some beginners' questions. Adaptive mesh can save many DOFs than a uniform mesh. But it also needs to solve linear systems changing with mesh adaptive process. Is this not problem? ...

### Meshes in codes that do AMR

In light of this question and some stuff I read online I am wondering if large FE libs (e.g., deal.ii, libmesh etc.) that do AMR keep the entire mesh or possibly a coarse version of the entire mesh on ...

### Finite Element Method vs Extended Finite Element Method (FEM vs XFEM)

What are main differences between FEM and XFEM? When should we (not) use XFEM intead of FEM and vice versa? In other words, when I meet a new problem, how I can know to use which one of them?
