Accurate spectral solutions to a phase-field transition system

Abstract

The paper is mainly concerned with numerical approximation of solutions to the phase-field transition system (Caginalp’s model), subject to the non-homogeneous Dirichlet boundary  conditions. Numerical approximation of solutions to the nonlinear phase-field (Allen-Cahn) equation, supplied with the non-homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions as well as with  homogeneous Cauchy-Neumann boundary conditions is also of interest. To achieve these goals, a Chebyshev collocation method, coupled with a Runge-Kutta scheme, has been used. The role of the nonlinearity and the influence of the boundary conditions on numerical approximation in allen-Cahn equation were analyzed too. To cope with the stiffness of Caginalp’s model, a multistep solver has been additionally used; all this, in order to march in time along with the same spatial discretization. Some numerical experiments are reported in order to illustrate the effectiveness of our numerical approach.
