Publication Open Access A linearly implicit splitting method for solving time dependent semilinear reaction-diffusion systems(Springer, 2020) Clavero, Carmelo; Jorge Ulecia, Juan Carlos; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute of Smart Cities - ISCShow more In this paper we deal with the efficient resolution of a coupled system of two one dimensional, time dependent, semilinear parabolic singularly perturbed partial differential equations of reaction-diffusion type, with distinct diffusion parameters which may have different orders of magnitude. The numerical method is based on a linearized version of the fractional implicit Euler method, which avoids the use of iterative methods, and a splitting by components to discretize in time; so, only tridiagonal linear systems are involved in the time integration process. Consequently, the computational cost of the proposed method is lower than classical schemes used for the same type of problems. The solution of this singularly perturbed problem features layers, what are resolved on an appropriate piecewise uniform mesh of Shishkin type. We show that the method is uniformly convergent of first order in time and of almost second order in space. Numerical results are presented to corroborate the theoretical results.Show more Publication Open Access An efficient numerical method for singularly perturbed time dependent parabolic 2D convection-diffusion systems(Elsevier, 2018) Clavero, Carmelo; Jorge Ulecia, Juan Carlos; Ingeniería Matemática e Informática; Matematika eta Informatika Ingeniaritza; Institute of Smart Cities - ISCShow more In this paper we deal with solving efficiently 2D linear parabolic singularly perturbed systems of convection–diffusion type. We analyze only the case of a system of two equations where both of them feature the same diffusion parameter. Nevertheless, the method is easily extended to systems with an arbitrary number of equations which have the same diffusion coefficient. The fully discrete numerical method combines the upwind finite difference scheme, to discretize in space, and the fractional implicit Euler method, together with a splitting by directions and components of the reaction–convection–diffusion operator, to discretize in time. Then, if the spatial discretization is defined on an appropriate piecewise uniform Shishkin type mesh, the method is uniformly convergent and it is first order in time and almost first order in space. The use of a fractional step method in combination with the splitting technique to discretize in time, means that only tridiagonal linear systems must be solved at each time level of the discretization. Moreover, we study the order reduction phenomenon associated with the time dependent boundary conditions and we provide a simple way of avoiding it. Some numerical results, which corroborate the theoretical established properties of the method, are shown.Show more Publication Open Access A uniformly convergent scheme to solve two-dimensional parabolic singularly perturbed systems of reaction-diffusion type with multiple diffusion parameters(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2021) Clavero, Carmelo; Jorge Ulecia, Juan Carlos; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute of Smart Cities - ISCShow more In this work, we deal with solving two-dimensional parabolic singularly perturbed systems of reaction-diffusion type where the diffusion parameters at each equation of the system can be small and of different scale. In such case, in general, overlapping boundary layers appear at the boundary of the spatial domain and, because of this, special meshes are required to resolve them. The numerical scheme combines the central difference scheme to discretize in space and the fractional implicit Euler method together with a splitting by components to discretize in time. If the fully discrete scheme is defined on an adequate piecewise uniform Shishkin mesh in space then it is uniformly convergent of first order in time and of almost second order in space. Some numerical results illustrate the theoretical results. © 2020 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.Show more Publication Embargo A multi-splitting method to solve 2D parabolic reaction-diffusion singularly perturbed systems(Elsevier, 2023) Clavero, Carmelo; Jorge Ulecia, Juan Carlos; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute of Smart Cities - ISC; Estadística, Informática y MatemáticasShow more In this paper we design and analyze a numerical method to solve a type of reaction-diffusion 2D parabolic singularly perturbed systems. The method combines the central finite difference scheme on an appropriate piecewise uniform mesh of Shishkin type to discretize in space, and the fractional implicit Euler method together with a splitting by directions and components of the reaction-diffusion operator to integrate in time. We prove that the method is uniformly convergent of first order in time and almost second order in space. The use of this time integration technique has the advantage that only tridiagonal linear systems must be solved to obtain the numerical solution at each time step; because of this, our method provides a remarkable reduction of computational cost, in comparison with other implicit methods which have been previously proposed for the same type of problems. Full details of the uniform convergence are given only for systems with two equations; nevertheless, our ideas can be easily extended to systems with an arbitrary number of equations as it is shown in the numerical experiences performed. The numerical results show in practice the qualities of our proposal.Show more Publication Open Access Parallel solution of nonlinear parabolic problems on logically rectangular grids(Springer, 2007) Arrarás Ventura, Andrés; Portero Egea, Laura; Jorge Ulecia, Juan Carlos; Ingeniería Matemática e Informática; Matematika eta Informatika IngeniaritzaShow more This work deals with the efficient numerical solution of nonlinear transient flow problems posed on two-dimensional porous media of general geometry. We first consider a spatial semidiscretization of such problems by using a cell-centered finite difference scheme on a logically rectangular grid. The resulting nonlinear stiff initial-value problems are then integrated in time by means of a fractional step method, combined with a decomposition of the flow domain into a set of overlapping subdomains and a linearization procedure which involves suitable Taylor expansions. The proposed algorithm reduces the original problem to the solution of several linear systems per time step. Moreover, each one of such systems can be directly decomposed into a set of uncoupled linear subsystems which can be solved in parallel. A numerical example illustrates the unconditionally convergent behaviour of the method in the last section of the paper.Show more Publication Open Access Embedded pairs of fractional step Runge-Kutta methods and improved domain decomposition techniques for parabolic problems(Springer, 2007) Portero Egea, Laura; Jorge Ulecia, Juan Carlos; Ingeniería Matemática e Informática; Matematika eta Informatika IngeniaritzaShow more In this paper we design and apply new embedded pairs of Frac- tional Step Runge-Kutta methods to the e±cient solution of multidimensional parabolic problems. These time integrators are combined with a suitable split- ting of the elliptic operator subordinated to a decomposition of the spatial domain and a standard spatial discretization. With this technique we ob- tain parallel algorithms which have the main advantages of classical domain decomposition methods and, besides, avoid iterative processes like Schwarz iterations, typical of them. The use of these embedded methods permits a fast variable step time integration process.Show more Publication Open Access An efficient and uniformly convergent scheme for one-dimensional parabolic singularly perturbed semilinear systems of reaction-diffusion type(Springer, 2020) Clavero, Carmelo; Jorge Ulecia, Juan Carlos; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute of Smart Cities - ISCShow more Publication Open Access Avoiding the order reduction when solving second-order in time PDEs with Fractional Step Runge–Kutta–Nyström methods(Elsevier, 2016) Moreta, M. Jesús; Bujanda Cirauqui, Blanca; Jorge Ulecia, Juan Carlos; Ingeniería Matemática e Informática; Matematika eta Informatika IngeniaritzaShow more We study some of the main features of Fractional Step Runge–Kutta–Nyström methods when they are used to integrate Initial–Boundary Value Problems of second order in time, in combination with a suitable spatial discretization. We focus our attention on the order reduction phenomenon, which appears if classical boundary conditions are taken at the internal stages. This drawback is specially hard when time dependent boundary conditions are considered. In this paper we present an efficient technique, very simple and computationally cheap, which allows us to avoid the order reduction; such technique consists in modifying the boundary conditions for the internal stages of the method.Show more Publication Open Access A splitting uniformly convergent method for one-dimensional parabolic singularly perturbed convection-diffusion systems(Elsevier, 2023) Clavero, Carmelo; Jorge Ulecia, Juan Carlos; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute of Smart Cities - ISC; Universidad Pública de Navarra / Nafarroako Unibertsitate PublikoaShow more In this paper we deal with solving robustly and efficiently one-dimensional linear parabolic singularly perturbed systems of convection-diffusion type, where the diffusion parameters can be different at each equation and even they can have different orders of magnitude. The numerical algorithm combines the classical upwind finite difference scheme to discretize in space and the fractional implicit Euler method together with an appropriate splitting by components to discretize in time. We prove that if the spatial discretization is defined on an adequate piecewise uniform Shishkin mesh, the fully discrete scheme is uniformly convergent of first order in time and of almost first order in space. The technique used to discretize in time produces only tridiagonal linear systems to be solved at each time level; thus, from the computational cost point of view, the method we propose is more efficient than other numerical algorithms which have been used for these problems. Numerical results for several test problems are shown, which corroborate in practice both the uniform convergence and the efficiency of the algorithm.Show more Publication Embargo New fractional step Runge-Kutta-Nyström methods up to order three(Elsevier, 2020) Bujanda Cirauqui, Blanca; Moreta, M. Jesús; Jorge Ulecia, Juan Carlos; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2; Institute of Smart Cities - ISC; Estadística, Informática y MatemáticasShow more Fractional Step Runge–Kutta–Nyströ (FSRKN) methods have been revealed to be an excellent option to integrate numerically many multidimensional evolution models governed by second order in time partial differential equations. These methods, combined with suitable spatial discretizations, lead to strong computational cost reductions respect to many classical implicit time integrators. In this paper, we present the construction process of several implicit FSRKN methods of two and three levels which attain orders up to three and satisfy adequate stability properties. We have also performed some numerical experiments in order to show the unconditionally convergent behavior of these schemes as well as their computational advantages.Show more
