Stability estimates for radial basis function methods applied to time-dependent hyperbolic PDEs

  author={Igor Tominec and Murtazo Nazarov and Elisabeth Larsson},
We derive stability estimates for three commonly used radial basis function (RBF) methods to solve hyperbolic time-dependent PDEs: the RBF generated finite difference (RBF-FD) method, the RBF partition of unity method (RBF-PUM) and Kansa’s (global) RBF method. We give the estimates in the discrete `2-norm intrinsic to each of the three methods. The results show that Kansa’s method and RBF-PUM can be `2-stable in time under a sufficiently large oversampling of the discretized system of equations… 


The overlapped radial basis function-finite difference (RBF-FD) method: A generalization of RBF-FD
This work presents an a priori estimate for the speedup of their method over RBF-FD that serves as a good predictor for the true speedup, and develops an automatic stabilization procedure based on local Lebesgue functions for the stable selection of stencil weights over a wide range of δ values.
Hyperviscosity-Based Stabilization for Radial Basis Function-Finite Difference (RBF-FD) Discretizations of Advection-Diffusion Equations
A novel hyperviscosity formulation for stabilizing RBF-FD discretizations of the advectiondiffusion equation that is a generalization of existing ones in the literature, but is free of any tuning parameters and can be computed efficiently.
Stability of Radial Basis Function Methods for Convection Problems on the Circle and Sphere
It is proved that the RBF method is Lax-stable for problems on the circle when the collocation points are equispaced and the transport speed is constant, and it is proposed that the least-squares method can substantially improve stability without any increase to computational cost and with only a minor cost to accuracy.
On the role of polynomials in RBF-FD approximations: II. Numerical solution of elliptic PDEs
It is found that combining polyharmonic splines (PHS) with multivariate polynomials offers an outstanding combination of simplicity, accuracy, and geometric flexibility when solving elliptic equations in irregular regions.
Residual viscosity stabilized RBF-FD methods for solving nonlinear conservation laws
An oversampled radial basis function generated finite difference method to solve time-dependent nonlinear conservation laws using a residual based artificial viscosity stabilization, where the residual of the conservation law indicates the approximate location of the shocks.

The present study complements the previous results, providing an analytical insight into RBF-FD approximations augmented with polynomials, based on a closed-form expression for the interpolant, which reveals the mechanisms underlying these features, including the role of polynmials and RBFs in the interpolants, the approximation error, and the behavior of the cardinal functions near boundaries.
Towards Stable Radial Basis Function Methods for Linear Advection Problems
By using the concept of flux reconstruction and simultaneous approximation terms (SATs), respectively, it is able to prove that both new RBF schemes are strongly (energy) stable.

This monograph focuses on radial basis functions (RBFs), a powerful numerical methodology for solving PDEs to high accuracy in any number of dimensions and traces the algorithmic evolution of RBFs, starting with brief introductions to finite difference and pseudospectral methods and following a logical progression to global RBFs and then to RBF-generated FD (RBF-FD) methods.
Stabilization of RBF-generated finite difference methods for convective PDEs
This study presents a new filter mechanism, allowing such gains to be realized also for purely convective PDEs that do not naturally feature any stabilizing dissipation.
An Efficient High-Order Meshless Method for Advection-Diffusion Equations on Time-Varying Irregular Domains
We present a high-order radial basis function finite difference (RBF-FD) framework for the solution of advection-diffusion equations on time-varying domains. Our framework is based on a
