In this work, we propose a second-order version and a fourth-order version of a Cartesian grid-based boundary integral method for an interface problem of the Laplace equation on closely packed cells. When the cells are closely packed, the boundary integrals involved in the boundary integral formulation for the interface problem become nearly singular. Direct evaluation of the boundary integrals has accuracy issues. The grid-based method evaluates a boundary integral by first solving an… 

A High-Order Kernel-Free Boundary Integral Method for the Biharmonic Equation on Irregular Domains

A remarkable point of the work is that the nine-point compact difference scheme in dealing with each split second-order elliptic interface problem on irregular domains yields fourth-order accurate solution for the biharmonic equation.

A Kernel-free Boundary Integral Method for the Bidomain Equations

Numerical results for solving the FitzHugh-Nagumo bidomain equations in both two and three-dimensional spaces are presented to demonstrate the numerical performance of the KFBI method such as the second-order accuracy and the propagation and scroll wave of the voltage simulated on the real human left ventricle model.

Convergence of a cartesian method for elliptic problems with immersed interfaces

The convergence of a Cartesian method for elliptic problems with immersed interfaces that was introduced in a previous paper is studied, and the proof of convergence uses discrete Green’s functions and takes advantage of a discrete maximum principle to obtain estimates on the coefficients of the inverse matrix.
