Learning Interpretable and Thermodynamically Stable Partial Differential Equations

by   Juntao Huang, et al.

In this work, we develop a method for learning interpretable and thermodynamically stable partial differential equations (PDEs) based on the Conservation-dissipation Formalism of irreversible thermodynamics. As governing equations for non-equilibrium flows in one dimension, the learned PDEs are parameterized by fully-connected neural networks and satisfy the conservation-dissipation principle automatically. In particular, they are hyperbolic balance laws. The training data are generated from a kinetic model with smooth initial data. Numerical results indicate that the learned PDEs can achieve good accuracy in a wide range of Knudsen numbers. Remarkably, the learned dynamics can give satisfactory results with randomly sampled discontinuous initial data although it is trained only with smooth initial data.
