A New Discontinuous Galerkin Method to Solve Highly Sensitive Troesch’s Problem

Helmi Temimi

Abstract—In this paper, we propose a new discontinuous Galerkin finite element (DG) method to solve Troesch’s problem, which is highly sensitive for large values of the parameter. This twopoint boundary value problem has been heavily studied since 1960, however, only a few papers have provided a reliable solution for high sensitivity. Therefore, we developed the DG method which has been proved its efficiency for many decades to be a new numerical solver. We demonstrate through computational results compared with those computed by other methods, that the discontinuous Galerkin method provides a quite efficient, accurate and reliable solution. Thus, the DG method is an attractive and competitive alternative to other numerical and semi-analytical techniques to solve highly sensitive nonlinear problems.

Index Terms—Troesch’s problem, discontinuous galerkin method, nonlinear boundary value problem.
