Review: After Time Stepping… Back to PDE’s
• We have now proposed two quite distinct but
reliable ways to advance an ODE approximately in
time.
• But our original goal was to solve a PDE
u
u
c
t
x
• And not just for one mode.

• We chose to sample the ODE at discrete points on the time axis.
• We can also make the same choice for the spatial representation
at each discrete time level.
tn
xm3 xm2 xm1 xm
xm1 xm2 xm3

• We follow this choice with the dilemma of how to reconstruct an
approximation to the derivative of discretely sampled data.

We will consider the use of each of these difference formula
(and more sophisticated versions) as approximations for the spatial
derivatives.
We consider stability… by which we mean we will examine the
eigenspectrum of the difference operator treated as a matrix.
We will use Gershgorin’s theorem frequently:

Discrete
  Operator Matrix
• By Gerschgorin’s theorem we conclude that the matrix has all
eigenvalues contained in the circle centered at -c/dx with radius
c/dx
• Thus the eigenvalues are all in the left half plane, with the
possible exception of one or more on the origin  good candidate
for time-stepping.

Right Shift Matrix
• We write down explicitly what the right shift matrix
is:
R nm   n  1,m

indicates that this is addition modulo M

• All the eigenvalues are in the right half plane, apart
from the possiblity of a subset which are at the
origin.

stepping operator (and clearly not physical)

ODE for each discrete Fourier mode.
• We know that the m’th mode has physical shape e

CAAM 452 Spring 2005
The Imaginary Part
• We now see that for each of
the methods has a dispersive
nature (wave speed changes
with wave number).
• Also, the imaginary part of the
multiplier is not monotone and
linear over [0, pi] or [pi,2*pi]
• Clearly there will be spurious
modes (eigenvalues) which
show up in the discrete
spectrum as we saw last time.

• Compare with GKO p83.
• The eigenvalues are all imaginary
• Tedious Taylor expansion computations will reveal
an error O(theta^7)
• Next we plot this dispersion relationship against the
other examples:

• It should be clear that the 6th order central difference operator is more
accurate over a wider range of theta – but still prone to spurious
eigenvalues.

Summary So Far
• We have established that for the advection equation
u
u
it is not appropriate to use   for the spatial
c
t
x
derivative term (non-negative real part for multiplier).
• The other difference formulae are stable in this
context:   ,  0 ,  4 ,  6
• In this context   is referred to as an upwind derivative
– it uses a dissipative mechanism to remain stable.
• The given central difference operators are carefully
designed so that their eigenvalues sit on the imaginary
axis.

• We have established that in each of the schemes we have
replaced the exact ODE multiplier

• with an approximation, in this lecture denoted by:

 error terms
dx
• We found that this approximation is not uniform in wave
number – i.e. there is a non monotonic dependence in m
(embedded in the error terms).
• This explains our observation of the spurious eigenvalues in
the computer evaluations of the spectrum of the discrete
operator.

Recall Those Spurious Eigenvalues
• What should the eigenvalues of the 4th order derivative operator
ideally tend to in the limiting of decreasing dx?
• Example (10, 20, 80 points with the periodic length 2*pi):
>> [dxDeigs, dxD] = test4th(10); >> [dxDeigs, dxD] = test4th(20);
>> dx = 2*pi/20;
>> dx = 2*pi/10;
>>
>> sort(dxDeigs/dx)
>> e = sort(dxDeigs/dx);
>> e(1:10)

Upwinding
• Recall: we referred to the   differencing operator
as the “upwind derivative”.
• This is due to the physical placement of the
sampled data relative to the advection direction:
xm3 xm2 xm1 xm xm1 xm2 xm3
• i.e. the differencing only uses data from the
upstream (upwind) direction.
x
