Positivity preservation of implicit discretizations of the advection equation

  title={Positivity preservation of implicit discretizations of the advection equation},
  author={Yiannis Hadjimichael and David I. Ketcheson and Lajos L'oczi},
We analyze, from the viewpoint of positivity preservation, certain discretizations of a fundamental partial differential equation, the one-dimensional advection equation with periodic boundary condition. The full discretization is obtained by coupling a finite difference spatial semi-discretization (the secondand some higher-order centered difference schemes, or the Fourier spectral collocation method) with an arbitrary θ-method in time (including the forward and backward Euler methods, and a…

Semi-implicit methods for advection equations with explicit forms of numerical solution

We present a parametric family of semi-implicit second order accurate numerical methods for non-conservative and conservative advection equation for which the numerical solutions can be obtained in a



Positivity for Convective Semi-discretizations

It is shown that many higher-order explicit Runge–Kutta methods, including the classical 4th-order method and all non-confluent methods with a negative Butcher coefficient, cannot generally maintain positivity for these semi-discretizations under any positive step size.

Numerical solution of time-dependent advection-diffusion-reaction equations

This paper presents a meta-modelling procedure called “Stabilized Explicit Runge-Kutta Methods”, which automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and therefore expensive process of integrating discrete-time components into a coherent system.
