Mechanical quadrature methods and extrapolation for solving nonlinear boundary Helmholtz integral equations
- 83 Downloads
This paper presents mechanical quadrature methods (MQMs) for solving nonlinear boundary Helmholtz integral equations. The methods have high accuracy of order O(h 3) and low computation complexity. Moreover, the mechanical quadrature methods are simple without computing any singular integration. A nonlinear system is constructed by discretizing the nonlinear boundary integral equations. The stability and convergence of the system are proved based on an asymptotical compact theory and the Stepleman theorem. Using the h 3-Richardson extrapolation algorithms (EAs), the accuracy to the order of O(h 5) is improved. To slove the nonlinear system, the Newton iteration is discussed extensively by using the Ostrowski fixed point theorem. The efficiency of the algorithms is illustrated by numerical examples.
