High-order compact schemes for nonlinear dispersive waves. (English) Zbl 1089.76043

Summary: High-order compact finite difference schemes coupled with high-order low-pass filter and the classical fourth-order Runge-Kutta scheme are applied to simulate nonlinear dispersive wave propagation problems described the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV)-like equations, which involve a third derivative term. Several examples such as KdV equation, and KdV-Burgers equation are presented, and the solutions obtained are compared with some other numerical methods. Computational results demonstrate that high-order compact schemes work very well for problems involving a third derivative term.
