Approximation of the Levy–Feller advection–dispersion process by random walk and finite difference method
Liu, Q., Liu, Fawang, Turner, Ian W., & Anh, Vo V. (2007) Approximation of the Levy–Feller advection–dispersion process by random walk and finite difference method. Journal of Computational Physics, 222(1), pp. 57-70.
In this paper we present a random walk model for approximating a Levy–Feller advection–dispersion process, governed by the Levy–Feller advection–dispersion differential equation (LFADE). We show that the random walk model converges to LFADE by use of a properly scaled transition to vanishing space and time steps. We propose an explicit finite difference approximation (EFDA) for LFADE, resulting from the Grunwald–Letnikov discretization of fractional derivatives. As a result of the interpretation of the random walk model, the stability and convergence of EFDA for LFADE in a bounded domain are discussed. Finally, some numerical examples are presented to show the application of the present technique.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
