A Chebyshev multidomain adaptive mesh method for Reaction-Diffusion equations

03/15/2021 ∙ by Jae-Hun Jung, et al. ∙ 0

Reaction-Diffusion equations can present solutions in the form of traveling waves. Such solutions evolve in different spatial and temporal scales and it is desired to construct numerical methods that can adopt a spatial refinement at locations with large gradient solutions. In this work we develop a high order adaptive mesh method based on Chebyshev polynomials with a multidomain approach for the traveling wave solutions of reaction-diffusion systems, where the proposed method uses the non-conforming and non-overlapping spectral multidomain method with the temporal adaptation of the computational mesh. Contrary to the existing multidomain spectral methods for reaction-diffusion equations, the proposed multidomain spectral method solves the given PDEs in each subdomain locally first and the boundary and interface conditions are solved in a global manner. In this way, the method can be parallelizable and is efficient for the large reaction-diffusion system. We show that the proposed method is stable and provide both the one- and two-dimensional numerical results that show the efficacy of the proposed method.
