Spectral methods for exterior elliptic problems. (English) Zbl 0548.65082
This paper deals with spectral approximations for exterior elliptic problems in two dimensions. As in the conventional finite difference or finite element methods, it is found that the accuracy of the numerical solutions is limited by the order of the farfield conditions. We introduce a spectral boundary treatment at infinity, which is compatible with the ”infinite order” interior spectral scheme. Computational results are presented to demonstrate the spectral accuracy attainable. Although we deal with a simple Laplace problem throughout the paper, our analysis covers more complex and general cases.
