A compact 9 point stencil based on integrated RBFs for the convection-diffusion equation

Mai-Duy, N. and Thai-Quang, N. and Hoang-Trieu, T.-T. and Tran-Cong, T. (2014) A compact 9 point stencil based on integrated RBFs for the convection-diffusion equation. Applied Mathematical Modelling, 38 (4). pp. 1495-1510. ISSN 0307-904X


In this paper, a high-order compact stencil for solving the convection-diffusion equation in two dimensions is proposed. The convection and diffusion terms are both approximated by means of radial basis functions (RBFs) that are constructed over 3 × 3 rectangular stencils. Salient features here are that (i) integration is employed to construct local RBF approximations; and (ii) through the constants of integration, values of the convection-diffusion equation at several selected nodes on the stencil are also enforced. Numerical results indicate that (i) the inclusion of the governing equation into the stencil leads to a significant improvement in accuracy; (ii) when the convection dominates, accurate solutions are obtained at a regime of the RBF width which makes the RBFs peaked; and (iii) high levels of accuracy are achieved using relatively coarse grids.
