Grid strategy and high accuracy via defect corrections for the Kreiss-method for stiff boundary value problems

Short Communications


A grid strategy is developed via the first step of a defect correction applied to the Kreiss method. The full defect corrections are used on the final grid to compute high accuracy approximations efficiently.

Gitterstrategie und Genauigkeitserhöhungen mittels Defektkorrektur für das Keiss-Verfahren für steife


Der erste Schriff eines Defektkorrekturverfahrens angewandt auf das Kreiss-Verfahren ermöglicht eine Gitterstrategie. Das vollständige Defektkorrekturverfahren wird auf dem Endgitter zur effizienten Berechnung von Approximationen hoher Genauigkeit herangezogen.
