چکیده

We introduce a novel technique for constructing higher-order variational integrators for Hamiltonian systems of ODEs. In particular, we are concerned with generating globally smooth approximations to solutions of a Hamiltonian system. Our construction of the discrete Lagrangian adopts Hermite interpolation polynomials and the Euler–Maclaurin quadrature formula, and involves applying collocation to the Euler–Lagrange equation and its prolongation. Considerable attention is devoted to the order analysis of the resulting variational integrators in terms of approximation properties of the Hermite polynomials and quadrature errors. A performance comparison is presented on a selection of these integrators.

Spectral-collocation variational integrators

Spectral methods are a popular choice for constructing numerical approximations for smooth problems, as they can achieve geometric rates of convergence and have a relatively small memory footprint. In this paper, we introduce a general framework to convert a spectral-collocation method into a shootingbased variational integrator for Hamiltonian systems. We also compare the proposed spectral-col...

Construction and comparison of multidimensional spectral variational integrators and spectral collocation methods

In this paper, we construct numerical schemes for spectral collocation methods and spectral variational integrators which converge geometrically. We present a systematic comparison of how spectral collocation methods and Galerkin spectral variational integrators perform in terms of their ability to reproduce accurate trajectories in configuration and phase space, their ability to conserve momen...

A novel class of highly efficient and accurate time-integrators in nonlinear computational mechanics

A new class of time-integrators is presented for strongly nonlinear dynamical systems. These algorithms are far superior to the currently common time integrators in computational efficiency and accuracy. These three algorithms are based on a local variational iteration method applied over a finite interval of time. By using Chebyshev polynomials as trial functions andDirac–Delta functions as th...

Total Variation and Variational Symplectic-Energy- Momentum integrators

In 1980’s, Lee proposed an energy-preserving discrete mechanics with variable time steps by taking (discrete) time as dynamical variable [2, 3, 4]. On the other hand, motivated by the symplectic property of Lagrangian mechanics, a version of discrete Lagrangian mechanics has been devoloped and variational integrators that preserve discrete symplectic two form have been obtained [11, 12, 15, 16,...
