**A new way to generate an exponential finite difference scheme for 2D convection-diffusion equations.**
*(English)*
Zbl 1442.65327

Summary: The idea of direction changing and order reducing is proposed to generate an exponential difference scheme over a five-point stencil for solving two-dimensional (2D) convection-diffusion equation with source term. During the derivation process, the higher order derivatives along \(y\)-direction are removed to the derivatives along \(x\)-direction iteratively using information given by the original differential equation (similarly from \(x\)-direction to \(y\)-direction) and then instead of keeping finite terms in the Taylor series expansion, infinite terms which constitute convergent series are kept on deriving the exponential coefficients of the scheme. From the construction process one may gain more insight into the relations among the stencil coefficients. The scheme is of positive type so it is unconditionally stable and the convergence rate is proved to be of second-order. Fourth-order accuracy can be obtained by applying Richardson extrapolation algorithm. Numerical results show that the scheme is accurate, stable, and especially suitable for convection-dominated problems with different kinds of boundary layers including elliptic and parabolic ones. The idea of the method can be applied to a wide variety of differential equations.
