Conservation of energy, momentum and actions in numerical discretizations of non-linear wave equations
2008 (English)In: Numerische Mathematik, ISSN 0029-599X, E-ISSN 0945-3245, Vol. 110, no 2, 113-143 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
For classes of symplectic and symmetric time-stepping methods- trigonometric integrators and the Stormer-Verlet or leapfrog method-applied to spectral semi-discretizations of semilinear wave equations in a weakly non-linear setting, it is shown that energy, momentum, and all harmonic actions are approximately preserved over long times. For the case of interest where the CFL number is not a small parameter, such results are outside the reach of standard backward error analysis. Here, they are instead obtained via a modulated Fourier expansion in time.
