Local discontinuous Galerkin methods for Hamiltonian PDEs

Y. Sun, W. Cai and W. Tang

In this talk, we present the time-space local discontinuous Galerkin methods [1] for Hamiltonian PDEs in the multisymplectic formulation. With the appropriate quadrature formula, the resulting discretizations are equivalent to the multisymplectic partitioned Runge-Kutta methods [2] whose implementation has not been fully understood besides for a class of multisymplectic Hamiltonian systems in special forms [3]. We use the new discretization strategy to simulate the soliton solutions of nonlinear Schrödinger equation, and observe the errors of numerical solutions and the global charge.
