SpecSolve: Spectral methods for spectral measures

  title={SpecSolve: Spectral methods for spectral measures},
  author={Matthew J. Colbrook and Andrew D Horning},
Self-adjoint operators on infinite-dimensional spaces with continuous spectra are abundant but do not possess a basis of eigenfunctions. Rather, diagonalization is achieved through spectral measures. The SpecSolve package [SIAM Rev., 63(3) (2021), pp. 489–524] computes spectral measures of general (self-adjoint) differential and integral operators by combining state-of-the-art adaptive spectral methods with an efficient resolvent-based strategy. The algorithm achieves arbitrarily high orders of…

Computing spectral measures of self-adjoint operators

Using the resolvent operator, an algorithm for computing smoothed approximations of spectral measures associated with self-adjoint operators can achieve arbitrarily high-orders of convergence in terms of a smoothing parameter.

A fast and well-conditioned spectral method for singular integral equations

Numerical approximation of the spectrum of self-adjoint operators in operator preconditioning

We consider operator preconditioning B−1A, which is employed in the numerical solution of boundary value problems. Here, the self-adjoint operators A,B : H 0 (Ω) → H−1(Ω) are the standard

A Spectral Transform Method for Singular Sturm-Liouville Problems with Applications to Energy Diffusion in Plasma Physics

We develop a spectrally accurate numerical method to compute solutions of a model PDE used in plasma physics to describe diffusion in velocity space due to Fokker--Planck collisions. The solution is

Spectral Theory and Differential Operators

This book gives an account of those parts of the analysis of closed linear operators acting in Banach or Hilbert spaces that are relevant to spectral problems involving differential operators, and

Laplacian Preconditioning of Elliptic PDEs: Localization of the Eigenvalues of the Discretized Operator

The existence of a one-to-one pairing between the eigenvalues of $\bf{L}^{-1}\bf{A}$ and the intervals determined by the images under $k(x)$ of the supports of the FE nodal basis functions is proved.

The final part tries to introduce the reader to the fascinating setting of differential forms and homological techniques with the description of the Hodge–Laplace eigenvalue problem and its mixed equivalent formulations.

Spectral theory of pseudodifferential operators of degree 0 and an application to forced linear waves

We extend the results of our paper "Attractors for two dimensional waves with homogeneous Hamiltonians of degree 0" written with Laure Saint-Raymond to the case of forced linear wave equations in any

Preconditioning discretizations of systems of partial differential equations

This survey paper is based on three talks given by the second author at the London Mathematical Society Durham Symposium on Computational Linear Algebra for Partial Differential Equations and argues that the mapping properties of the coefficient operators suggest that block diagonal preconditioners are natural choices for these systems.
