Abstract

The dispersive behavior of the recently proposed energy-conserving discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method by Fu and Shu (Optimal energy-conserving discontinuous Galerkin methods for linear symmetric hyperbolic systems, 2018. arXiv:1804.10307) is analyzed and compared with the classical centered and upwinding DG schemes. It is shown that the new scheme gives a significant improvement over the classical centered and upwinding DG schemes in terms of dispersion error. Numerical results are presented to support the theoretical findings.
