High-order filtered scheme for front propagation problems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this work we develop a specific application of the scheme proposed and analyzed in [1] to front propagation problems. The approach is based on the level-set method which leads in the isotropic case to a classical evolutive first order Hamilton- Jacobi equation.We will apply to this equation high-order “filtered schemes”, for these schemes the strong monotonicity property will not be satisfied. However, a weak є-monotonicity property applies and this is enough to obtain a convergence result and a precise error estimate. In the last section we will present several examples where we solve front propagation problems by filtered scheme in two and three dimensions showing the accuracy of our method.
