Fast integral equation methods for linear and semilinear heat equations in moving domains

by   Jun Wang, et al.

We present a family of integral equation-based solvers for the linear or semilinear heat equation in complicated moving (or stationary) geometries. This approach has significant advantages over more standard finite element or finite difference methods in terms of accuracy, stability and space-time adaptivity. In order to be practical, however, a number of technical capabilites are required: fast algorithms for the evaluation of heat potentials, high-order accurate quadratures for singular and weakly integrals over space-time domains, and robust automatic mesh refinement and coarsening capabilities. We describe all of these components and illustrate the performance of the approach with numerical examples in two space dimensions.
