A Kernel-Based Explicit Unconditionally Stable Scheme for Hamilton-Jacobi Equations on Nonuniform Meshes

02/01/2020 ∙ by Andrew Christlieb, et al. ∙ 0

In <cit.>, the authors developed a class of high-order numerical schemes for the Hamilton-Jacobi (H-J) equations, which are unconditionally stable, yet take the form of an explicit scheme. This paper extends such schemes, so that they are more effective at capturing sharp gradients, especially on nonuniform meshes. In particular, we modify the weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) methodology in the previously developed schemes by incorporating an exponential basis and adapting the previously developed nonlinear filters used to control oscillations. The main advantages of the proposed schemes are their effectiveness and simplicity, since they can be easily implemented on higher-dimensional nonuniform meshes. We perform numerical experiments on a collection of examples, including H-J equations with linear, nonlinear, convex and non-convex Hamiltonians. To demonstrate the flexibility of the proposed schemes, we also include test problems defined on non-trivial geometry.
