Geometric Numerical Integration and Schrodinger Equations by Erwan Faou

By Erwan Faou

The aim of geometric numerical integration is the simulation of evolution equations owning geometric homes over lengthy occasions. Of specific significance are Hamiltonian partial differential equations usually coming up in program fields comparable to quantum mechanics or wave propagation phenomena. They express many vital dynamical positive factors equivalent to strength renovation and conservation of adiabatic invariants over very long time. during this atmosphere, a traditional query is how and to which volume the replica of such very long time qualitative habit may be ensured by means of numerical schemes.

Starting from numerical examples, those notes offer an in depth research of the Schrödinger equation in an easy environment (periodic boundary stipulations, polynomial nonlinearities) approximated by way of symplectic splitting equipment. research of balance and instability phenomena brought on by way of area and time discretization are given, and rigorous mathematical motives for them.

The booklet grew out of a graduate point path and is of curiosity to researchers and scholars looking an creation to the subject material.
