  5. 5. Localised Radial Basis Function Methods for Partial Differential Equations

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Victor Shcherbakov; Elisabeth Larsson; Grady B. Wright; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Radial basis function; Partition of unity; Computational finance; Option pricing; Credit default swap; Glaciology; Fluid dynamics; Non-Newtonian flow; Anisotropic RBF; Beräkningsvetenskap med inriktning mot numerisk analys; Scientific Computing with specialization in Numerical Analysis;

    Abstract : Radial basis function methods exhibit several very attractive properties such as a high order convergence of the approximated solution and flexibility to the domain geometry. However the method in its classical formulation becomes impractical for problems with relatively large numbers of degrees of freedom due to the ill-conditioning and dense structure of coefficient matrix.
