Multi-revolution composition methods for highly oscillatory differential equations

Publication date2014

We introduce a new class of multi-revolution composition methods (MRCM) for the approximation of the Nth-iterate of a given near-identity map. When applied to the numerical integration of highly oscillatory systems of differential equations, the technique benefits from the properties of standard composition methods: it is intrinsically geometric and well-suited for Hamiltonian or divergence-free equations for instance. We prove error estimates with error constants that are independent of the oscillatory frequency. Numerical experiments, in particular for the nonlinear Schr¨odinger equation, illustrate the theoretical results, as well as the efficiency and versatility of the methods.
