Splitting Schemes for Non-Stationary Problems with a Rational Approximation for Fractional Powers of the Operator

by   Petr N. Vabishchevich, et al.

Problems of the numerical solution of the Cauchy problem for a first-order differential-operator equation are discussed. A fundamental feature of the problem under study is that the equation includes a fractional power of the self-adjoint positive operator. In computational practice, rational approximations of the fractional power operator are widely used in various versions. The purpose of this work is to construct special approximations in time when the transition to a new level in time provided a set of standard problems for the operator and not for the fractional power operator. Stable splitting schemes with weights parameters are proposed for the additive representation of rational approximation for a fractional power operator. Possibilities of using similar time approximations for other problems are noted. The numerical solution of a two-dimensional non-stationary problem with a fractional power of the Laplace operator is also presented.
