  • The symposium emphasized those difficult problems in partial differential equations exhibiting some type of singular behavior. Four individual papers were prepared for the data base. (GHT)
  • The application of collocation methods using spline basis functions to solve differential model equations has been in use for a few decades. However, the application of spline collocation to the solution of the nonlinear, coupled, partial differential equations (in primitive variables) that define the motion of fluids has only recently received much attention. The issues that affect the effectiveness and accuracy of B-spline collocation for solving differential equations include which points to use for collocation, what degree B-spline to use and what level of continuity to maintain. Success using higher degree B-spline curves having higher continuity at the knots, asmore » opposed to more traditional approaches using orthogonal collocation, have recently been investigated along with collocation at the Greville points for linear (1D) and rectangular (2D) geometries. The development of automatic knot insertion techniques to provide sufficient accuracy for B-spline collocation has been underway. The present article reviews recent progress for the application of B-spline collocation to fluid motion equations as well as new work in developing a novel adaptive knot insertion algorithm for a 1D convection-diffusion model equation.« less
  • This paper describes GEARS, a package of Fortran subroutines designed to solve stiff systems of ordinary differential equations of the form dy/dt = f(y,t), where the Jacobian matrices J = par. delta f/par. delta y are large and sparse. The integrator is based on the stiffly stable methods due to Gear, and this approach leads to a sparse system of nonlinear equations at each time step. These are solved with a modified Newton iteration, using one of two separate sparse matrix packages to solve the sparse linear equations that arise. This paper describes the package, in some detail, discusses amore » number of issues that affected the design of the package, and presents a numerical example to illustrate the effectiveness of the package. 1 figure, 1 table.« less
