@article{Alldredge2014AdaptiveCO, title={Adaptive change of basis in entropy-based moment closures for linear kinetic equations}, author={G. Alldredge and C. Hauck and D. O'Leary and A. Tits}, journal={J. Comput. Phys.}, year={2014}, volume={258}, pages={489-508} }

Entropy-based ( M N ) moment closures for kinetic equations are defined by a constrained optimization problem that must be solved at every point in a space-time mesh, making it important to solve these optimization problems accurately and efficiently. We present a complete and practical numerical algorithm for solving the dual problem in one-dimensional, slab geometries. The closure is only well-defined on the set of moments that are realizable from a positive underlying distribution, and as… Expand
