Numerical methods: analysis and simulations
The team addresses both questions of precision and numerical cost of the schemes for the numerical integration of nonlinear evolution PDEs, such as the NLS equation. In particular, we to develop, study and implement numerical schemes with high order that are more efficient. We also to contribute to the design and analysis of schemes with appropriate qualitative properties. These properties may as well be “asymptotic preserving” properties, energy-preserving properties, or convergence to an equilibrium properties. Other numerical goals of the team include the numerical simulation of standing waves of nonlinear nonlocal GP equations. We also keep on developing numerical methods to efficiently simulate and illustrate theoretical results on instability, in particular in the context of the modulational instability in optical fibers, where we study the influence of randomness in the physical parameters of the fibers.
