A wavelet based space-time adaptive numerical method for partial differential equations. (English) Zbl 0768.65062

A space-time adaptive algorithm based on wavelet orthonormal bases is described for solving the heat equation, the linear advection equation and the one-dimensional Burgers equation. The stability of this algorithm is studied. Numerical results are presented.
