Finite volume methods for simulating anomalous transport
Hejazi, Hala Ahmad (2015) Finite volume methods for simulating anomalous transport. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.
In this thesis a new approach for solving a certain class of anomalous diffusion equations was developed. The theory and algorithms arising from this work will pave the way for more efficient and more accurate solutions of these equations, with applications to science, health and industry. The method of finite volumes was applied to discretise the spatial derivatives, and this was shown to outperform existing methods in several key respects. The stability and convergence of the new method were rigorously established.
