### Reinch's modification to the Clenshaw recurrence gives no improvement

The classical Clenshaw recurrence (see Algorithm 3.1 here) is less accurate as $x\to \pm 1$. So Reich proposed a modification to it, which is discussed as Algorithm 3.2 as well as by Oliver. While ...

### Showing stability of numerical scheme: Decaying norm implies stability?

I have a little trouble formulating my question since I am not really sure what conclusions I am supposed to draw from the results I have obtained. I am sorry for the long problem formulation below, ...

### Numerical Stability of a Generalized Spatial Discretization Scheme

After reading the matrix stability chapter (10) of Hirsch , I decided to dive in the reference list of the chapter. One of the papers , which is cited as reference shows an very interesting ...

### Stability of PDEs

I am currently trying to solve some PDEs with FiPy. At page 56, the manual mentions (https://www.ctcms.nist.gov/fipy/download/fipy-3.0.pdf). The largest stable timestep that can be taken for this ...

### Finite Difference Method Limitations/Stability Criteria

Is it possible to solve an equation with only a single derivative such as: $$\frac{\partial U(x,t)}{\partial t} = A - BU(x,t)$$ with finite difference methods? I ask as I am trying to solve the ...

### discretizing advection equation with variable wave speed + stability

I currently have a code that solves $u_t+ cu_x=0$ with periodic boundary conditions, and constant $c$ (using an upwind method). I'm wondering how I would alter this code to solve something of the form ...

### Testing the SUPG method and other methods for hyperbolic equations

I am interesting in integrating the simple equation $$\frac{\partial \phi}{\partial t} + \mathbf{u}\cdot\nabla \phi = 0$$ with a Dirichlet boundary condition at the influx boundary (\$\mathbf{u} \...

### The final Boundary Condition is Unknown, Is Backward Euler is still valid to be implemented?

I am working on conductive polymer modeling and supposed to do one-dimensional diffusion model in the thickness of the polymer, however, due to the small value of thickness in micro, when I use the ...

### Stability of nonlinear partial differential equation

I want to find an expression for the stability of the nonlinear Poisson equation. I know about von Neumann stability analysis which applies to linear equations as far as I know. Any suggestion how to ...

### How to choose the relaxation time in the Lattice Boltzmann Method?

We know that the relaxation time is very important in LBM. I have searched lost of papers, but can't find some systematic introductions about the choice of relaxation time in SRT LBM. Could you give ...

### comparison of stability of two non-linear methods

I have solved a numerical problem using two different sets of non-linear governing equations. I want to get an understanding of the stability of the methods relative to each other. To do so, I solving ...
