From Kinetic Equations to Multidimensional Isentropic Gas Dynamics Before Shocks
, 2003
"... This article is devoted to the proof of the hydrodynamical limit from kinetic equations (including B.G.K. like equations) to multidimensional isentropic gas dynamics. It is based on a relative entropy method, hence the derivation is valid only before shocks appear on the limit system solution. Howev ..."

This article is devoted to the proof of the hydrodynamical limit from kinetic equations (including B.G.K. like equations) to multidimensional isentropic gas dynamics. It is based on a relative entropy method, hence the derivation is valid only before shocks appear on the limit system solution. However, no a priori knowledge on high velocities distributions for kinetic functions is needed. The case of the SaintVenant system with topography (where a source term is added) is included. Keywords: Hydrodynamic limit, Entropy method, B.G.K. equation, Isentropic gas dynamics, SaintVenant system.

Abstract. This paper investigates the behavior of numerical schemes for nonlinear conservation laws with source terms. We concentrate on two significant examples: relaxation approximations and genuinely nonhomogeneous scalar laws. The main tool in our analysis is the extensive use of weak limits and nonconservative products which allow us to describe accurately the operations achieved in practice when using Riemannbased numerical schemes. Some illustrative and relevant computational results are provided. 1.

We derive and study WellBalanced schemes for quasimonotone discrete kinetic models. By means of a rigorous localization procedure, we reformulate the collision terms as nonconservative products and solve the resulting Riemann problem whose solution is selfsimilar. The construction of an Asymptotic Preserving (AP) Godunov scheme is straightforward and various compactness properties are established within different scalings. At last, some computational results are supplied to show that this approach is realizable and ecient on concrete 2 × 2 models.

Communicated by F. Brezzi This review reports the existing literature on traffic flow modelling in the framework of a critical overview which aims to indicate research perspectives. The contents mainly refer to modelling by fluid dynamic and kinetic equations and are arranged in three parts. The first part refers to methodological aspects of mathematical modelling and to the interpretation of experimental results. The second part is devoted to modelling and deals both with methodological aspects and with the description of some specific models. The third part reports about an overview on applications and research perspectives.

This paper deals with the diusion limit of a kinetic equation where the collisions are modeled by a Lorentz type operator. The main aim is to construct a discrete scheme to approximate this equation which gives for any value of the Knudsen number, and in particular at the diusive limit, the right discrete diusion equation with the same value of the diusion coecient as in the continuous case. We are also naturally interested with a discretization which can be used with few velocity discretization points, in order to reduce the cost of computation.
Godunovtype Approximation for a General Resonant Balance Law With Large Data

We consider the Cauchy problem for the 2 2 nonstrictly hyperbolic system u t + f(a; u) x g(a; u)a x = 0 (a; u)(0; ) = (a o ; u o ): For possibly large, discontinuous and resonant data, the generalized solution to the Riemann problem is introduced, interaction estimates are carried out using a ne ..."

We consider the Cauchy problem for the 2 2 nonstrictly hyperbolic system u t + f(a; u) x g(a; u)a x = 0 (a; u)(0; ) = (a o ; u o ): For possibly large, discontinuous and resonant data, the generalized solution to the Riemann problem is introduced, interaction estimates are carried out using a new change of variables and the convergence of Godunov approximations is shown. Uniqueness is addressed relying on a suitable extension of Kruzkov's techniques. 1

Abstract. This paper is concerned with the development of high order methods for the numerical approximation of onedimensional nonconservative hyperbolic systems. In particular, we are interested in high order extensions of the generalized Roe methods introduced by I. Toumi in 1992, based on WENO reconstruction of states. We also investigate the wellbalanced properties of the resulting schemes. Finally, we will focus on applications to shallowwater systems. 1.

We present a class of first and second order in space and time relaxation schemes for the shallow water (SW) equations. A new approach of incorporating the geometrical source term in the relaxation model is also presented. The schemes are based on classical relaxation models combined with RungeKutta time stepping mechanisms. Numerical results are presented for several benchmark test problems with or without the source term present.

Abstract. We propose and prove convergence of a front tracking method for scalar conservation laws with source term. The method is based on writing the single conservation law as a 2 × 2 quasilinear system without a source term, and employ the solution of the Riemann problem for this system in the front tracking procedure. In this way the source term is processed in the Riemann solver, and one avoids using operator splitting. Since we want to treat the resonant regime, classical arguments for bounding the total variation of numerical solutions do not apply here. Instead compactness of a sequence of front tracking solutions is achieved using a variant of the singular mapping technique invented by Temple [69]. The front tracking method has no CFL–condition associated with it, and it does not discriminate between stiff and nonstiff source terms. This makes it an attractive approach for stiff problems, as is demonstrated in numerical examples. In addition, the numerical examples show that the front tracking method is able to preserve steady–state solutions (or achieving them in the long time limit) with good accuracy. 1.
