Dozens of exponential integration formulas have been proposed for the high-accuracy solution of stiff PDEs such as the Allen-Cahn, Korteweg-de Vries and Ginzburg-Landau equations. We report the results of extensive comparisons in MATLAB and Chebfun of such formulas in 1D, 2D and 3D, focusing on fourth and higher order methods, and periodic semilinear stiff PDEs with constant coefficients. Our conclusion is that it is hard to do much better than one of the simplest of these formulas, the ETDRK4… Expand
On the convergence of Lawson methods for semilinear stiff problems
It is shown that non-stiff order conditions together with appropriate regularity assumptions imply high-order convergence of Lawson methods, which is in some contrast to the fact that they may have a bad convergence behaviour. Expand
On the Stability of Exponential Integrators for Non-Diffusive Equations
A simple repartitioning approach is proposed that stabilizes the integrators and enables the efficient solution of stiff, non-diffusive equations and, unlike hyperviscosity, it does not require the use of high-order spatial derivatives. Expand
Exponential Polynomial Time Integrators
A new class of parallel exponential block methods based on the Legendre points is constructed that can be constructed at arbitrary orders of accuracy, have improved stability compared to existing polynomial based exponential linear multistep methods, and offer significant computational savings compared to current state-of-the-art methods.

A spectral method for nonlocal diffusion operators on the sphere
These algorithms are based on the diagonalizability of nonlocal diffusion operators in the basis of spherical harmonics, the computation of their eigenvalues to high relative accuracy using quadrature and asymptotic formulas, and a fast spherical harmonic transform, which lead to an efficient implementation of high-order exponential integrators for time-dependent models.

Fourier-Spectral Method for the Phase-Field Equations

Mesh adaptation for pseudospectral ultrasound simulations
A bandwidth-based measure of the spatial resolution requirements for a model solution is developed and integrated into a moving mesh method, and a technique is presented for discretising arbitrary acoustic source distributions that greatly improves the accuracy of source discretisations for uniform meshes as well.
