Summation-By-Parts Operators for Time Discretisation: Initial Investigations
2012 (English)Report (Other academic)
We develop a new high order accurate time-discretisation technique for initial value problems. We focus on problems that originate from a space discretisation using high order finite difference methods on summation-by-parts form with weak boundary conditions, and extend that technique to the time-domain. The new time-discretisation method is global and together with the approximation in space, it generates optimal fully discrete energy estimates, and efficient methods for both stiff and non-stiff problems. In particular, it is shown how stable fully discrete high order accurate approximations of the Maxwells’ equations, the elastic wave equations and the linearised Euler and Navier-Stokes equations are obtained. Even though we focus on finite difference approximations, we stress that the methodology is completely general and suitable for all semi-discrete energy-stable approximations.
