When using Laguerre and Hermite spectral methods to numerically solve PDEs in unbounded domains, the number of collocation points assigned inside the region of interest is often insufficient, particularly when the region is expanded or translated to safely capture the unknown solution. Simply increasing the number of collocation points cannot ensure a fast convergence to spectral accuracy. In this paper, we propose a scaling technique and a moving technique to adaptively cluster enough…

A frequency-dependent p-adaptive technique for spectral methods

- Computer Science, MathematicsJ. Comput. Phys.
- 2021

A frequency-dependent, adaptive technique that adaptively adjusts the expansion order based on a frequency indicator is proposed that is able to devise an adaptive spectral method in unbounded domains that can capture and handle diffusion, advection, and oscillations.

It is shown that numerical accuracy under prescribed memory variables may deteriorate in time due to the dynamical increments of projection errors, but can be considerably alleviated by introducing a suitable scaling factor β > 1 and pushing the collocation points closer to origin.

It is demonstrated that the pseudo-spectral method with the high order Fourier smoothing gives a much better performance than the Pseudo-spectrals with the 2/3 dealiasing rule, and that the error produced by the high orders is highly localized near the region where the solution is most singular.
