Multi-level Monte Carlo Finite Difference Methods for Fractional Conservation Laws with Random Data

10/01/2020 ∙ by Ujjwal Koley, et al. ∙ 0

We establish a notion of random entropy solution for degenerate fractional conservation laws incorporating randomness in the initial data, convective flux and diffusive flux. In order to quantify the solution uncertainty, we design a multi-level Monte Carlo Finite Difference Method (MLMC-FDM) to approximate the ensemble average of the random entropy solutions. Furthermore, we analyze the convergence rates for MLMC-FDM and compare it with the convergence rates for the deterministic case. Additionally, we formulate error vs. work estimates for the multi-level estimator. Finally, we present several numerical experiments to demonstrate the efficiency of these schemes and validate the theoretical estimates obtained in this work.
