Upwind Summation By Parts Finite Difference Methods for Large Scale Elastic Wave Simulations In Complex Geometries
The results show that the upwind SBP operators are more robust and less prone to numerical dispersion errors on marginally resolved meshes when compared to traditionalSBP operators, thereby increasing efficiency.
Multiblock SBP-SAT Methodology of Symmetric Matrix Form of Elastic Wave Equations on Curvilinear Grids
