AbstractWe propose a class of weighted compact central (WCC) schemes for solving hyperbolic conservation laws. The linear version can be considered as a high-order extension of the central Lax-Friedrichs (LxF) scheme and the central conservation element and solution element (CESE) scheme. On every cell, the solution is approximated by a Pth order polynomial of which all the DOFs are stored and updated separately. The cell average is updated by a classical finite volume scheme which is constructed based on space-time staggered meshes such that the fluxes are continuous across the interfaces of the adjacent control volumes and, therefore, the local Riemann problem is bypassed. The kth order spatial derivatives are updated by a central difference of (k-1)th order spatial derivatives at cell vertices. All the space-time information is calculated by the Cauchy-Kovalewski procedure. By doing so, the schemes are able to achieve arbitrarily uniform spacetime high order on a super-compact stencil with only one explicit time step. In order to capture discontinuities without spurious oscillations, a weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) type limiter is tailor-made for the schemes. The limiter preserves the compactness and high order accuracy of the schemes. The accuracy, robustness, and efficiency of the schemes are verified by several numerical examples of scalar conservation laws and the compressible Euler equations.

Practical splitting methods for the adaptive integration of nonlinear evolution equations. Part I: Construction of optimized schemes and pairs of schemesAuzinger, Winfried; Hofstätter, Harald; Ketcheson, David I.; Koch, Othmar (BIT Numerical Mathematics, Springer Nature, 2016-07-28) [Article]We present a number of new contributions to the topic of constructing efficient higher-order splitting methods for the numerical integration of evolution equations. Particular schemes are constructed via setup and solution of polynomial systems for the splitting coefficients. To this end we use and modify a recent approach for generating these systems for a large class of splittings. In particular, various types of pairs of schemes intended for use in adaptive integrators are constructed.
Threshold-Based Multiple Optical Signal Selection Scheme for Free-Space Optical Wavelength Division Multiplexing SystemsNam, Sung Sik; Alouini, Mohamed-Slim; Zhang, Lin; Ko, Young-Chai (Journal of Optical Communications and Networking, The Optical Society, 2017-11-15) [Article]We propose a threshold-based multiple optical signal selection scheme (TMOS) for free-space optical wavelength division multiplexing systems. With this scheme, we can obtain higher spectral efficiency while reducing the possible complexity of implementation caused by the beam-selection scheme and without a considerable performance loss. To characterize the performance of our scheme, we statistically analyze the operation characteristics under conventional detection conditions (i.e., heterodyne detection and intensity modulation/direct detection techniques) with log-normal turbulence while taking into consideration the impact of pointing error. More specifically, we derive exact closed-form expressions for the outage probability, the average bit error rate, and the average spectral efficiency while adopting an adaptive modulation. Some selected results show that TMOS increases the average spectral efficiency while maintaining a minimum average bit error rate requirement.
