High-order mass- and energy-conserving SAV-Gauss collocation finite element methods for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation

by   Xiaobing Feng, et al.

A family of arbitrarily high-order fully discrete space-time finite element methods are proposed for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation based on the scalar auxiliary variable formulation, which consists of a Gauss collocation temporal discretization and the finite element spatial discretization. The proposed methods are proved to be well-posed and conserving both mass and energy at the discrete level. An error bound of the form O(h^p+τ^k+1) in the L^∞(0,T;H^1)-norm is established, where h and τ denote the spatial and temporal mesh sizes, respectively, and (p,k) is the degree of the space-time finite elements. Numerical experiments are provided to validate the theoretical results on the convergence rates and conservation properties. The effectiveness of the proposed methods in preserving the shape of a soliton wave is also demonstrated by numerical results.
