Modulated Fourier expansions of highly oscillatory differential equations

Lubich, Christian
Published in Foundations of Computational Mathematics. 2003, vol. 3, no. 4, p. 327-345
Abstract Modulated Fourier expansions are developed as a tool for gaining insight into the long-time behaviour of Hamiltonian systems with highly oscillatory solutions. Particle systems of Fermi-Pasta-Ulam type with light and heavy masses are considered as an example. It is shown that the harmonic energy of the highly oscillatory part is nearly conserved over times that are exponentially long in the high frequency. Unlike previous approaches to such problems, the technique used here does not employ nonlinear coordinate transforms and can therefore be extended to the analysis of numerical discretizations.
