Designing Neural Networks for Hyperbolic Conservation Laws

  title={Designing Neural Networks for Hyperbolic Conservation Laws},
  author={Zhen Chen and Anne Gelb and Yoonsang Lee},
We propose a new data-driven method to learn the dynamics of an unknown hyperbolic system of conservation laws using deep neural networks. Inspired by classical methods in numerical conservation laws, we develop a new conservative form network (CFN) in which the network learns the flux function of the unknown system. Our numerical examples demonstrate that the CFN yields significantly better prediction accuracy than what is obtained using a standard non-conservative form network, even when it is…

Data Driven Governing Equations Approximation Using Deep Neural Networks


A DNN structure is proposed, largely based upon the residual network (ResNet), to not only learn the unknown form of the governing equation but also take into account the random effect embedded in the system, which is generated by the random parameters.

This work develops a learning algorithm to identify the terms in the underlying partial differential equations and to approximate the coefficients of the terms only using data, which uses sparse optimization in order to perform feature selection and parameter estimation.

Lagrangian Neural Networks

LNNs are proposed, which can parameterize arbitrary Lagrangians using neural networks, and do not require canonical coordinates, and thus perform well in situations where canonical momenta are unknown or difficult to compute.

GFINNs: GENERIC formalism informed neural networks for deterministic and stochastic dynamical systems

It is proved theoretically that GFINNs are sufficiently expressive to learn the underlying equations, hence establishing the universal approximation theorem.

Modeling unknown dynamical systems with hidden parameters

By training a DNN using the trajectory data with sufficient time history, the resulting DNN model can accurately model the unknown dynamical system and can produce accurate system predictions over longer time.
