Solving reaction-diffusion equations 10 times faster

Kassam, Aly-Khan (2003) Solving reaction-diffusion equations 10 times faster. Technical Report. Unspecified. (Submitted)



The most popular numerical method for solving systems of reaction-diffusion equations continues to be a low order finite-difference scheme coupled with low order Euler time stepping. This paper extends previous 1D work and reports experiments that show that with high--order methods one can speed up such simulations for 2D and 3D problems by factors of 10--100. A short MATLAB code (2/3D) that can serve as a template is included.
