Some remarks about the collocation method on a modified Legendre grid. (English) Zbl 0868.65049
Summary: We compare the results obtained by applying the standard collocation method at the Legendre Gauss-Lobatto nodes, for a model problem simulating a steady advection-diffusion equation, with those obtained by collocating at a new set of nodes. These nodes are derived from a suitable modification of the Legendre grid, according to the magnitude of the ratio between the advective and the diffusive parts of the differential operator.
