Finite Dierences

Systems considered:

1D Transient, 2D Transient

1. Unstable method - requires analysis of discretization scheme to evaluate its stability.: CON 2. Error is typically large due to the Zero Order Hold, and requires very ne grid size for acceptable answer.: CON 3. Positivity not ensured even with a very ne grid. The tail regions are especially susceptible to negative solution, causing error percolation into regions with high probability density: CON 4. Growth of domain size leads to an explosion in the number of grid points because the same grid neness needs to be maintained.: CON 5. Method cannot be generalized - every system requires a dierent discretization scheme that is stable, i.e., requires reformulation for every new system.: CON 6. Matrix to be inverted is very large in dimensions, requires special iterative algorithms, e.g. Gauss Siedel, and convergence is not guaranteed.: CON 7. Almost impossible for systems with state-dimension 2, for one or more of above cited reasons.: CON 8. It is the simplest possible implementation of the problem, only requires extensive bookkeeping.: PRO 9. It served as a useful starting point towards the solution to a formidable problem.: PRO

Results Obtained:

1D Transient System:: Unstable Solution, singularity makes the 1D system a pathological example. 2D Dung Oscillator ( + x3 = 0):: Solution obtained for only moderately nonlinear x cases ( max = 0.2), and for only 1 orbit of propagation. Errors grow large after that. Solution attempted for a case with separatrix:: Divergence observed almost instantly.

(Galerkin Method)

Systems Studied:

1D Transient, 2D stationary, 2D Transient.

1. Given a good reference pdf, it gives accurate results, infact the most accurate results obtained hence far.:PRO 2. Positivity enforced by log-pdf transformation. Orthogonality of the polynomial basis used results in uncoupled non-linear equations for the basis functions coecients, which are easy to integrate. :PRO 3. Especially suited for systems with polynomial dynamics, the integrals can be done analytically. :PRO 4. N domain issues, solution obtained over (, )N . :PRO 5. It automatically satises the boundary conditions. :PRO 6. No domain issues, solution obtained over (, )N . :PRO 7. Time required is the least of all methods considered so far. :PRO 8. The method is cumbersome for systems with non-polynomial dynamics. :CON - This was the rst reason why we looked for alternate schemes 9. It is not suitable for systems with pdf spread over multiple and/or asymmetric regions, as the global weight functions cannot account for all these regions at the same time. :CON - This was the second reason why we looked for a local approximation method. 10. If we desire to use basis functions other than polynomials, or, special functions, all the benets of orthogonality are lost, and there are no signicant advantages. :CON

Results Obtained:

1D transient:: Captures the solution with high accuracy, and even tracks down the terminal singular behavior of a dirac delta function for considerable duration. Positivity enforced 2D stationary:: Highly accurate results for ring-pdf and bimodal-pdf. However, log-pdf transform in this case leads to a quadratic matrix equation, which is solved iteratively, and requires a good starting guess. 2D transient:: Very accurate results for the ring pdf. Goes from initial state to stationary pdf with small error. Time required 20-30 minutes.

1. Highest accuracy so far. REASON: The log-transform comes as a blessing in disguise, despite transforming the equation into a non-linear one. It entails that the solution we seek is a polynomial function, instead of the exponential of a polynomial function. Consequently, a polynomial basis does the job with very small error. However, this result is dependent on the reference pdf. It is expected that systems with non-polynomial dynamics will have much greater error. 2. Not recommended for future work, because the global nature of approximation is unsuitable complex pdfs. Also, dependence on reference solution is a major drawback. Although orthogonality properties are an advantage, such features are lost if one desires better basis functions that are deduced from prior knowledge of local behavior of solution.

Systems Studied:

2D stationary, 4D stationary (current)

1. Local Approximation. :PRO 2. Can handle systems with any nature of system dynamics. :PRO 3. Much less susceptible to tuning issues, like a ref. pdf. :PRO 4. Local approximations made so far were local enough to not require positivity enforcement. :PRO 5. Requires a high density of nodes for acceptable solution. The reason is that a simple monomial basis set is not good enough to learn a exponential surface on a coarse nodal distribution. :CON 3

6. Requires numerical integration. :CON 7. MLPG requires a MLS solution for each quadrature point - i.e., if there are 50 50 nodes and 10 10 quadrature points per local regime, then one needs to solve > 50 50 10 10 = 2.5 105 MLS problems. :CON 8. Recent experience with the 4D problem shows that there is diculty in solving the MLS approximation, if the nodes are not close together. It leads to an ill-conditioned matrix inversion. :CON 9. Boundary conditions are dicult to impose, and constitute the heuristic part of the method - done via a penalty method. The diculty is mainly because our problem requires enforcement of Dirichlet BC over the articial boundaries, which is a tough ask. :CON 10. The most time consuming of all methods used so far. Right now, we cannot even begin to start solving the transient problem, e.g., stationary solution ( 1 time step in a transient problem) requires 20-25 minutes. :CON

1. Although it reduces the book-keeping as compared with traditional FEM in terms of element connectivity, there is signicant book-keeping required for the management of boundary nodes. 2. Although theoretically, it allows random placement of nodes, such an endeavor did not yield better results, infact worse (more nodes were used in regions of high probability density). 3. The most computationally intensive method. 4. NOT recommended for future work, in its current state. The current form of this method will collapse for a high dimensional system. Also, with its current formulation, one cannot use dierent basis functions in dierent local regimes. This is due to the limitation of the blending functions used in MLPG. Thus, basis enrichment is not possible. The reason this method fails (despite its local nature) to match the results produced by the global approach, is that a polynomial basis set is being used, albeit locally, to approximate the exponential of polynomial functions. It fails to achieve this beyond a certain degree of accuracy. On the other hand, the global method utilized the polynomial basis to track polynomials, by virtue of the log-pdf transform.

1. Desire a Local Approximation, with a coarse mesh, tentatively 5 - 8 nodes per dimension (86 2.63 105 DOF).

2. Desire a Functional Approximation inside each local domain - i.e. desire element based method. 3. Desire special functions for basis enrichment. Polynomials cannot give desired accuracy, especially in a coarse mesh. Need to implement the idea of Handbook Functions used in the Generalized Finite Element methods. (ref: Strouboulis, Babuska, Kopps, 20002002). These handbook functions require some prior knowledge of the system, and can be evaluated computationally. We can use the linear systems knowledge to build them. 4. Require a blending scheme to merge the various local approximations seamlessly. This can be achieved by the PUM. 5. Challenge: Enforcement of boundary conditions: most GFEM methods deal with problems with Neumann, and not Dirichlet boundary conditions. However, recent GFEM literature deals with this issue. 6. Challenge: The coarseness of mesh might require positivity enforcement. If done by log-pdf transform, will lead to complicated and coupled non-linear equations. However, the rst task is to learn the evaluation of handbook functions.
