Moving mesh method with local time step refinement for blow-up problems. (English) Zbl 1130.65092

Summary: The dynamical moving mesh method is merged with the local time stepping technique and the new method is applied for blow-up problems. It has some benefit in approximating an accurate blow-up time by starting at any positive initial time (\(t_{0}> 0)\).
Our numerical experiment shows that without applying the local time stepping method, the wrong blow-up time will be obtained, if the equation integrates from \(t_{0}> 0\).
