Order theory for discrete gradient methods

03/18/2020 ∙ by Sølve Eidnes, et al. ∙ 0

We present a subclass of the discrete gradient methods, which are integrators designed to preserve invariants of ordinary differential equations. From a formal series expansion of the methods, we derive conditions for arbitrarily high order. We devote considerable space to the average vector field discrete gradient, from which we get P-series methods in the general case, and B-series methods for canonical Hamiltonian systems. Higher order schemes are presented and applied to the Hénon-Heiles system and a Lotka-Volterra system.
