DOI: 10.1080/00207160.2017.1417593

In this paper, a numerical method is proposed for the numerical solution of the coupled nonlinear reaction–diffusion equations with suitable initial and boundary conditions by using the Haar wavelet method to determine the unknown boundary conditions. More precisely, we apply the Haar wavelet method for discretizing the space derivatives and then use a quasilinearization technique to linearize the nonlinear term in the equations. This process generates an ill-posed linear system of equations. Hence, to regularize the resultant ill-posed linear system of equations, we employ the Tikhonov regularization method to obtain a stable numerical approximation to the solution. We also prove the convergence of order one (i.e. O(1/M)) and discuss the error estimation and stability computation for the proposed method. Finally, we report some numerical results which in compared with the finite difference method and the radial basis function method show the efficiency and capability of the proposed method. © 2017, © 2017 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.

In this paper, based on the cubic B-spline finite element (CBSFE) and the radial basis functions (RBFs) methods, the inverse problems of finding the nonlinear source term for system of reaction–diffusion equations are studied. The approach of the proposed methods are to approximate unknown coefficients by a polynomial function whose coefficients are determined from the solution of minimization problem based on the overspecified data. In fact, this work considers a comparative study between the cubic B-spline finite element method and radial basis functions method. The stability and convergence analysis for these problems are investigated and some examples are given to illustrate the results. © 2017, Springer-Verlag London Ltd., part of Springer Nature.

DOI: 10.1080/00036811.2016.1272102

In this paper, a numerical method is proposed for the numerical solution of a linear system with suitable initial and boundary conditions using the cubic B-spline collocation scheme to determine the unknown boundary condition. We apply the cubic B-spline for the spatial variable and the derivatives which, generate an ill-posed linear system of equations. In this regard, to overcome, to this drawback, we employ the Tikhonov regularization method for solving the resultant linear system. It is proved that the proposed method has the order of convergence O(Δt + h2). Also, the conditional stability using the Von-Neumann method is established under suitable assumptions. Finally, some numerical results are reported to show the efficiency and robustness of the proposed approach for solving the inverse problems. © 2017 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.

DOI: 10.1504/IJCSM.2018.09650

A numerical procedure based on a fully implicit finite difference method for an inverse problem of identification of an unknown source in a heat equation is presented. The approach of the proposed method is to approximate unknown function from the solution of the minimisation problem based on the overspecified data. This problem is ill-posed, in the sense that the solution (if it exist) does not depend continuously on the data. To regularise this ill-conditioned, we apply the Tikhonov regularisation 0th, 1st and 2nd method to obtain the stable numerical approximation to the solution. A stability analysis shows that this numerical scheme approximation is unconditionally stable. Numerical results for two inverse source identification problems show that the proposed numerical algorithm is simple, accurate, stable and computationally efficient.

DOI: 10.1007/s00366-017-0512-3

In this paper, we discuss a numerical method for solving an inverse Rosenau equation with Dirichlet’s boundary conditions. The approach used is based on collocation of a quintic B-spline over finite elements so that we have continuity of dependent variable and it first four derivatives throughout the solution range. We apply quintic B-spline for spatial variable and derivatives which produce an ill-posed system. We solve this system using Tikhonov regularization method. The accuracy of the proposed method is demonstrated by applying it on a test problem. Figures and comparisons have been presented for clarity. The main advantage of the resulting scheme is that the algorithm is very simple, so it is very easy to implement. © 2017, Springer-Verlag London.

Determination of an unknown time-dependent function in parabolic differential equations plays a very important role in many branches of science and engineering. In this paper, we present an approach based on ADM to solve inverse non-local initial-boundary value problems, since this problem is mildly ill-posed, the Tikhonov regularisation method is applied to deal with noisy input data and obtain a stable approximate solution. This method provides a reliable algorithm that requires less work if compared with the traditional techniques. Numerical results obtained from this method, indicating high accuracy and speed of the method. © 2015 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.

In this paper, we will first study the existence and uniqueness of the solution for a one dimensional inverse heat conduction problem (IHCP) via an auxiliary problem. Then the present work is motivated by desire to obtain numerical approach for solving this IHCP. Our method begins with the utilisation of some transformations. These transformations allow us to eliminate an unknown term from parabolic equation to obtain an inverse parabolic problem with two unknown boundary conditions. To solve this inverse problem, we use the fundamental solution method. The effectiveness of the algorithm is illustrated by numerical example. Copyright 2015 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.

The problem of identifying the solution (k(x, t),U(x, t)) in an inverse semilinear wave problem is considered. It is shown that under certain conditions of data φ, ψ, there exists a unique solution (k(x, t),U(x, t)) of this problem. Furthermore a numerical algorithm for solving the inverse semilinear wave problem is proposed. The approach for this inverse problem is given by using the semi-discretisation method. A polynomial function is proposed to approximate U(x, t) then the finite difference method is applied to approximate unknown k(x, t). Numerical results show efficiency of our method.

Using a transformation, the ill-posed IHCP becomes a Cauchy problem. Since the solution of Cauchy problem, exists and is unique but not always stable, the ill-posed problem is closely approximated by a well-posed problem. For this new well-posed problem, the existence, uniqueness, and stability of the solution are proved. © 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
