The paper is concerned with development of a new finite-volume method for a class of chemotaxis models and for a closely related haptotaxis model. In its simplest form, the chemotaxis model is described by a system of nonlinear PDEs: a convection-diffusion equation for the cell density coupled with a reaction-diffusion equation for the chemoattractant(More)
The purpose of this paper is to apply particle methods to the numerical solution of the EPDiff equation. The weak solutions of EPDiff are contact discontinuities that carry momentum so that wavefront interactions represent collisions in which momentum is exchanged. This behavior allows for the description of many rich physical applications, but also(More)
We extend the dispersion-velocity particle method that we recently introduced to advection models in which the velocity does not depend linearly on the solution or its derivatives. An example is the Korteweg de Vries (KdV) equation for which we derive a particle method and demonstrate numerically how it captures soliton–soliton interactions.
We present a new hybrid numerical method for computing the transport of a passive pollutant by a flow. The flow is modeled by the Saint-Venant system of shallow water equations and the pollutant propagation is described by a transport equation. The idea behind the new finite-volume-particle (FVP) method is to use different schemes for the flow and the(More)
We compute multivalued solutions of one-and two-dimensional pressure-less gas dynamics equations by deterministic particle methods. Point values of the computed solutions are to be recovered from their singular particle approximations using some smoothing procedure. We study several recovery strategies and demonstrate ability of the particle methods to(More)
The equation partial differential(t)u = u partial differential(xx)(2)u -(c-1)( partial differential(x)u)(2) is known in literature as a qualitative mathematical model of some biological phenomena. Here this equation is derived as a model of the groundwater flow in a water-absorbing fissurized porous rock; therefore, we refer to this equation as a(More)
The purpose of this paper is to provide global existence and uniqueness results for a family of fluid transport equations by establishing convergence results for the particle method applied to these equations. The considered family of PDEs is a collection of strongly nonlinear equations which yield traveling wave solutions and can be used to model a variety(More)
We first present a new sticky particle method for the system of pressureless gas dynamics. The method is based on the idea of sticky particles, which seems to work perfectly well for the models with point mass concentrations and strong singularity formations. In this method, the solution is sought in the form of a linear combination of δ-functions, whose(More)
Recently, a wavelet-based method was introduced for the systematic derivation of subgrid scale models in the numerical solution of partial differential equations. Starting from a discretization of the multiscale differential operator, the discrete operator is represented in a wavelet space and projected onto a coarser subspace. The coarse (homogenized)(More)
