DLGA-PDE: Discovery of PDEs with incomplete candidate library via combination of deep learning and genetic algorithm

by   Hao Xu, et al.

Data-driven methods have recently been developed to discover underlying partial differential equations (PDEs) of physical problems. However, for these methods, a complete candidate library of potential terms in a PDE are usually required. To overcome this limitation, we propose a novel framework combining deep learning and genetic algorithm, called DLGA-PDE, for discovering PDEs. In the proposed framework, a deep neural network that is trained with available data of a physical problem is utilized to generate meta-data and calculate derivatives, and the genetic algorithm is then employed to discover the underlying PDE. Owing to the merits of the genetic algorithm, such as mutation and crossover, DLGA-PDE can work with an incomplete candidate library. The proposed DLGA-PDE is tested for discovery of the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation, the Burgers equation, the wave equation, and the Chaffee-Infante equation, respectively, for proof-of-concept. Satisfactory results are obtained without the need for a complete candidate library, even in the presence of noisy and limited data.
