Conformal Maps to Multiply-Slit Domains and Applications

Hale, N. and Tee, T. W. (2008) Conformal Maps to Multiply-Slit Domains and Applications. Technical Report. Unspecified. (Submitted)



By exploiting conformal maps to vertically slit regions in the complex plane, a recently developed rational spectral method [Tee and Trefethen, 2006] is able to solve PDEs with interior layer-like behaviour using significantly fewer collocation points than traditional spectral methods. The conformal maps are chosen to 'enlarge the region of analyticity' in the solution: an idea which can be extended to other numerical methods based upon global polynomial interpolation. Here we show how such maps can be rapidly computed in both periodic and nonperiodic geometries, and apply them to some challenging differential equations.
