A Multiscale Method for Highly Oscillatory Dynamical Systems Using a Poincaré Map Type Technique

R. Tsai, B. Engquist and S.J. Kim

We propose a new multiscale method for computing the effective behavior of a class of highly oscillatory ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Without the need for identifying hidden slow variables, the proposed method is constructed based on the following ideas: a nonstandard splitting of the vector field (the right hand side of the ODEs); comparison of the solutions of the split equations; construction of effective paths in the state space whose projection onto the slow subspace has the correct dynamics; and a novel on-the-fly filtering technique for achieving a high order accuracy. Numerical examples are given.
