    A Nonlinear Multigrid Steady-State Solver for Microflow

    Full text link
    We develop a nonlinear multigrid method to solve the steady state of microflow, which is modeled by the high order moment system derived recently for the steady-state Boltzmann equation with ES-BGK collision term. The solver adopts a symmetric Gauss-Seidel iterative scheme nested by a local Newton iteration on grid cell level as its smoother. Numerical examples show that the solver is insensitive to the parameters in the implementation thus is quite robust. It is demonstrated that expected efficiency improvement is achieved by the proposed method in comparison with the direct time-stepping scheme

    Numerical investigations of traveling singular sources problems via moving mesh method

    Full text link
    This paper studies the numerical solution of traveling singular sources problems. In such problems, a big challenge is the sources move with different speeds, which are described by some ordinary differential equations. A predictor-corrector algorithm is presented to simulate the position of singular sources. Then a moving mesh method in conjunction with domain decomposition is derived for the underlying PDE. According to the positions of the sources, the whole domain is splitted into several subdomains, where moving mesh equations are solved respectively. On the resulting mesh, the computation of jump [u˙][\dot{u}] is avoided and the discretization of the underlying PDE is reduced into only two cases. In addition, the new method has a desired second-order of the spatial convergence. Numerical examples are presented to illustrate the convergence rates and the efficiency of the method. Blow-up phenomenon is also investigated for various motions of the sources

    Thermal analysis of dual-phase-lag model in a two-dimensional plate subjected to a heat source moving along elliptical trajectories

    Full text link
    In this paper, we focus on the study of heat transfer behavior for the dual-phase-lag heat conduction model, which describes the evolution of temperature in a two-dimensional rectangular plate caused by the activity of a point heat source moving along elliptical trajectories. At first, Green's function approach is applied to derive the analytical solution of temperature for the given model. Based on the series representation of this analytical solution, the thermal responses for the underlying heat transfer problem, including the relations between the moving heat source and the concomitant temperature peak, the influences of the pair of phase lags and the angular velocity of heat source on temperature, are then investigated, analyzed and discussed in detail for three different movement trajectories. Compared with the results revealed for the common situation that the heat source moves in a straight line with a constant speed, the present results show quite distinctive thermal behaviors for all cases, which subsequently can help us to better understand the internal mechanism of the dual-phase-lag heat transfer subjected to a moving heat source with curved trajectory.Comment: 15 pages, 41 figure

    Bounded, compact and Schatten class Hankel operators on Fock-type spaces

    Full text link
    In this paper, we consider Hankel operators, with locally integrable symbols, densely defined on a family of Fock-type spaces whose weights are C3C^3-logarithmic growth functions with mild smoothness conditions. It is shown that a Hankel operator is bounded on such a Fock space if and only if its symbol function has bounded distance to analytic functions BDA which is initiated by Luecking(J. Funct. Anal. 110:247-271, 1992). We also characterize the compactness and Schatten class membership of Hankel operators. Besides, we give characterizations of the Schatten class membership of Toeplitz operators with positive measure symbols for the small exponent 0<p<10<p<1. Our proofs depend strongly on the technique of H\"{o}mander's L2L^2 estimates for the \overline{\partial} operator and the decomposition theory of BDA spaces as well as integral estimates involving the reproducing kernel
