Abstract

In this paper we continue the study initiated in our previous work [3] and design a projection-like algorithm to approximate a hyperbolic unstable "point''. This "point'' is in fact the positive solution of the reaction-diffusion problem considered in [3] and the algorithm modifies a finite difference (Euler)-finite elements scheme by incorporating the independence of the length of the domain condition. The numerical results are in good agreement with those obtained by direct methods as well as with those reported in [2], where the problem is solved in a Hamiltonian setting. At the same time we improve our previous results reported in [3].
