Uniform and high-order discretization schemes for Sturm–Liouville problems via Fer streamers

07 Aug 2017

The current paper concerns the uniform and high-order discretization of the novel approach to the computation of Sturm–Liouville problems via Fer streamers, put forth in Ramos and Iserles (Numer. Math. 131(3), 541—565 2015). In particular, the discretization schemes are shown to enjoy large step sizes uniform over the entire eigenvalue range and tight error estimates uniform for every eigenvalue. They are made explicit for global orders 4,7,10. In addition, the present paper provides total error estimates that quantify the interplay between the truncation and the discretization in the approach by Fer streamers.
