Algorithm for numerical solutions to the kinetic equation of a spatial population dynamics model with coalescence and repulsive jumps

07/31/2020 ∙ by Igor Omelyan, et al. ∙ 0

An algorithm is proposed for finding numerical solutions of a kinetic equation that describes an infinite system of point articles placed in ℝ^d (d ≥ 1). The particles perform random jumps with pair wise repulsion, in the course of which they can also merge. The kinetic equation is an essentially nonlinear and nonlocal integro-differential equation, which can hardly be solved analytically. The derivation of the algorithm is based on the use of space-time discretization, boundary conditions, composite Simpson and trapezoidal rules, Runge-Kutta methods, adjustable system-size schemes, etc. The algorithm is then applied to the one-dimensional version of the equation with various initial conditions. It is shown that for special choices of the model parameters, the solutions may have unexpectable time behaviour. A numerical error analysis of the obtained results is also carried out.
