Solving differential equations with fast oscillations using odeint

I have wrote this code to solve an equation , I know the behavior of this function has very rapid oscillations, when I RUN it gives bogus values for some "m[x]" and some "t"'s, ...

An explanation of 2delta waves on non-staggered grids

While looking into the difference between staggered and collocated grids, I came across an effect called $2\Delta x$-oscillations, which happen on non-staggered grids, but not on staggered grids. This ...

Good non oscilliatory derivatives for an exsisting grid

I'm calculating the entropy production of a shockwave by utilizing the equations: \begin{equation} \sigma = J'_q\frac{\partial}{\partial x}\left(\frac{1}{T}\right) +\frac{1}{T}\frac{4\eta}{3}\left(\...

Is it possible to predict solution oscillation before solving the system by looking at coefficient matrix?

Question When it is about solving a system of equations, is it possible to predict that whether high-frequency noise (e.g. checker-boarding) is likely to appear in the converged solution by looking at ...

Computation of a functional for large values

Consider the following function : $$f(x) = \sin^2(\frac{π\Gamma(x)}{2x})$$ Now consider the following functional : $$I(x)=\int_0^\infty \frac{f(x + iy) − f(x − iy)}{e^{2πy}-1} dy$$ I need values for ...

Scipy.integrate.odeint is returning curves with almost the same frequency for different damping ratios, shouldn't they be different?

I am trying to solve the ODE for a harmonic oscillator using Scipy's odeint solver for different dampening factors. I'm using the following code, based off of this example: ...

How do multigrid approaches deal with Gibbs phenomenon?

I know (from https://scicomp.stackexchange.com/a/31339/20545, among others) that I need a certain mesh density in FEM, else I might get non-physical oscillations in my solution. How do multigrid ...

What are these oscillations?

I have a function $g(x)$ defined numerically that is sort of in between a Gaussian and a Lorentzian. It decays much slower than a Gaussian, but still faster than a simple inverse power. I need to ...

Methods for integration of oscillatory complex vectors as a function of time

I'm attempting to solve a problem of the form: $$ \mathbf{a}^{(n+1)}(t) = \int_{0}^{t}d\tau e^{i\mathbf{H}\tau} \mathbf{D}(\tau)e^{-i\mathbf{H}\tau}\mathbf{a}^{(n)}(\tau) $$ Where $\mathbf{D}(\tau)$ ...

What is the origin of the spurious oscillations in the Crank-Nicolson scheme?

I was reading about the Crank-Nicolson method, and it is often said that it can produce "spurious oscillations" or that this method is prone to "ringing", especially for large time step and stiff ...
