On fully discrete schemes for the Fermi pencilbeam equation
(2002) In Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering 191(4142). p.46414659 Abstract
 We consider a Fermi pencilbeam model in twospace dimensions (x,y), where x is aligned with the beam’s penetration direction and y together with the scaled angular variable z correspond to a, bounded symmetric, transversal crosssection. The model corresponds to a forward–backward degenerate, convection dominated, convection–diffusion problem. For this problem we study some fully discrete numerical schemes using the standard and Petrov–Galerkin finite element methods, for discretizations of the transversal domain, combined with the backward Euler, Crank–Nicolson, and discontinuous Galerkin methods for discretizations in the penetration variable. We derive stability estimates for the semidiscrete problems. Further, assuming sufficiently... (More)

We derive stability estimates for the semidiscrete problems. Further, assuming sufficiently smooth exact solution, we obtain optimal a priori error bounds in a triple norm. These estimates give rise to a priori error estimates in the L2norm. Numerical implementations presented for some examples with the data approximating Dirac δ function, confirm the expected performance of the combined schemes. (Less)
