Abstract

Rational exponential integrators (REXI) are a class of numerical methods that are well suited for the time integration of linear partial differential equations with imaginary eigenvalues. Since these methods can be parallelized in time (in addition to the spatial parallelization that is commonly performed) they are well suited to exploit modern high performance computing systems. In this paper, we propose a novel REXI scheme that drastically improves accuracy and efficiency. The chosen approach will also allow us to easily determine how many terms are required in the approximation in order to obtain accurate results. We provide comparative numerical simulations for a shallow water equation that highlight the efficiency of our approach and demonstrate that REXI schemes can be efficiently implemented on graphic processing units.
