Efficient Numerical Method for Models Driven by L\'evy Process via Hierarchical Matrices. (arXiv:1812.08324v1 [math.NA])

Modeling via fractional partial differential equations or a L\'evy process has been an active area of research and has many applications. However, the lack of efficient numerical computation methods for general nonlocal operators impedes people from adopting such modeling tools. We proposed an efficient solver for the convection-diffusion equation whose operator is the infinitesimal generator of a L\'evy process based on $\mathcal{H}$-matrix technique. The proposed Crank Nicolson scheme is unconditionally stable and has a theoretical $\mathcal{O}(h^2+\Delta t^2)$ convergence rate. The $\mathcal{H}$-matrix technique has theoretical $\mathcal{O}(N)$ space and computational complexity compared to $\mathcal{O}(N^2)$ and $\mathcal{O}(N^3)$ respectively for the direct method. Numerical experiments demonstrate the efficiency of the new algorithm. 查看全文>>
