Treating Time as Just Another Space Variable

Randolph Bank


With respect to the numerical solution of partial differential equations, we explore the simple idea of treating time as a space variable, and not employing the usual method of lines time stepping approach. While this increases the space dimension of a given PDE problem by one, it introduces a static convection term that can be treated by a variety of techniques. This approach can be especially beneficial in the setting of parallel adaptive finite element computations.
