Long-time momentum and actions behaviour of energy-preserving methods for semi-linear wave equations via spatial spectral semi-discretisations

It is known that wave equations have physically very important properties which should be respected by numerical schemes in order to predict correctly the solution over a long time period. In this paper, the long-time behaviour of momentum and actions for energy-preserving methods is analysed for semi-linear wave equations. A full discretisation of wave equations is derived and analysed by firstly using a spectral semi-discretisation in space and then by applying the adopted average vector field (AAVF) method in time. This numerical scheme can exactly preserve the energy of the semi-discrete system. The main theme of this paper is to analyse another important physical property of the scheme. It is shown that this scheme yields near conservation of a modified momentum and modified actions over long times. The results are rigorously proved based on the technique of modulated Fourier expansions in two stages. First, a multi-frequency modulated Fourier expansion of the AAVF method is constructed, and then two almost-invariants of the modulation system are derived.
