An asymptoticpreserving stochastic Galerkin method for the radiative heat transfer equations with random inputs and diffusive scalings
Abstract
In this paper, we develop an AsymptoticPreserving (AP) stochastic Galerkin scheme for the radiative heat transfer equations with random inputs and diffusive scalings. In this problem the random inputs arise due to uncertainties in cross section, initial data or boundary data. We use the generalized polynomial chaos based stochastic Galerkin (gPCSG) method, which is combined with the micro–macro decomposition based deterministic AP framework in order to handle efficiently the diffusive regime. For linearized problem we prove the regularity of the solution in the random space and consequently the spectral accuracy of the gPCSG method. We also prove the uniform (in the mean free path) linear stability for the spacetime discretizations. Several numerical tests are presented to show the efficiency and accuracy of proposed scheme, especially in the diffusive regime.

In this paper we develop a set of stochastic numerical schemes for hyperbolic and transport equations with diffusive scalings and subject to random inputs. The schemes are asymptotic preserving (AP), in the sense that they preserve the diffusive limits of the equations in discrete setting, without requiring excessive refinement of the discretization. Our stochastic AP schemes are extensions of the welldeveloped deterministic AP schemes. To handle the random inputs, we employ generalized polynomial chaos (gPC) expansion and combine it with stochastic Galerkin procedure. We apply the gPC Galerkin scheme to a set of representative hyperbolic and transport equations and establishmore »

DGIMEX Stochastic Galerkin Schemes for Linear Transport Equation with Random Inputs and Diffusive Scalings
In this paper, we consider the linear transport equation under diffusive scaling and with random inputs. The method is based on the generalized polynomial chaos approach in the stochastic Galerkin framework. Several theoretical aspects will be addressed. Additionally, a uniform numerical stability with respect to the Knudsen number ϵ, and a uniform in ϵ error estimate is given. For temporal and spatial discretizations, we apply the implicit–explicit scheme under the micro–macro decomposition framework and the discontinuous Galerkin method, as proposed in Jang et al. (SIAM J Numer Anal 52:2048–2072, 2014) for deterministic problem. Lastly, we provide a rigorous proof ofmore » 
A RealizabilityPreserving Discontinuous Galerkin Method for the $$M_1$$ Model of Radiative Transfer
The M{sub 1} model for radiative transfer coupled to a material energy equation in planar geometry is studied in this paper. For this model to be wellposed, its moment variables must fulfill certain realizability conditions. Our main focus is the design and implementation of an explicit RungeKutta discontinuous Galerkin method which, under a more restrictive CFL condition, guarantees the realizability of the moment variables and the positivity of the material temperature. An analytical proof for our realizabilitypreserving scheme, which also includes a slopelimiting technique, is provided and confirmed by various numerical examples. Among other things, we present accuracy tests showingmore » 
An asymptotic preserving unified gas kinetic scheme for gray radiative transfer equations
The solutions of radiative transport equations can cover both optical thin and optical thick regimes due to the large variation of photon's meanfree path and its interaction with the material. In the small mean free path limit, the nonlinear timedependent radiative transfer equations can converge to an equilibrium diffusion equation due to the intensive interaction between radiation and material. In the optical thin limit, the photon free transport mechanism will emerge. In this paper, we are going to develop an accurate and robust asymptotic preserving unified gas kinetic scheme (APUGKS) for the gray radiative transfer equations, where the radiation transportmore »
