Introduction

This program is used to solve the generalized Swift-Hohenberg equation

\begin{align*} \frac{\partial u}{\partial t} = ru - (k_c + \Delta)^2 u + g_1 u^2 - u^3 \end{align*}

where \(k_c\) is the wave number, \(r\) is some fixed constant, and \(g_1\) is a parameter which determines the behavior of the solutions. Note that the equation is simply called the Swift-Hoheneberg equation if \(g_1 = 0\). For this solver, we chose \(k_c = 1\) and \(r = 0.3\). Choosing \(k_c\) to be 1 will mean that our solutions have a pattern wavelength of \(2\pi\). We choose \(r = 0.3\) because solutions are reasonably well behaved for small values of \(r\) and \(g_1\), but there are interesting behaviors that occur when \(g_1\) is smaller or larger than \(r\) in magnitude, so this allows us room to vary \(g_1\) and explore these behavior. Additionally, we choose \(r = 0.3\) because this matches the parameters used by Gurevich in [1]. We chose our parameters to match so that we could compare the output of our program to the results presented in [1], which was useful for validating that our code was functioning properly during the developement process. To summarize, this code solves:

\begin{align*} \frac{\partial u}{\partial t} = 0.3u - (1 + \Delta)^2 u + g_1 u^2 - u^3 \end{align*}

Discretization and Solving the Bilaplacian

The equation has two aspects which are challenging to solve: the nonlinear terms \(g_1u^2 - u^3\) and the Bilaplacian operator \((1 + \Delta)^2\), which introduces \(4^{th}\) derivatives. To deal with the Bilaplacian, we introduce a variable \(v\) and construct a system of PDEs:

\begin{align*} \frac{\partial u}{\partial t} &= 0.3u - (1 + \Delta) v + g_1 u^2 - u^3\\ (1 + \Delta)u &= v \end{align*}

We can solve these two equations simultaneously by treating our finite elements as vector valued, and interpreting our system of equations as a single vector-valued PDE. We can handle the nonlinear terms by treating them fully explicitly. If we discretize in time and rearrange terms, our system of equations becomes

\begin{align*} (1 - kr)U_n + k(1 + \Delta)V_n &= U_{n-1} + kg_1U_{n-1}^2 - kU_{n-1}^3\\ (1 + \Delta)U_n - V_n &= 0 \end{align*}

where \(k\) is the discrete timestep, \(U_n\) and \(V_n\) are the solutions for \(u\) and \(v\) at the current timestep, and \(U_{n-1}\) and \(V_{n-1}\) are the solutions for \(u\) and \(v\) at the previous timestep. We then reframe this system as a vector valued problem

\begin{align*} \left(\begin{matrix} 1 - kr & k(1 + \Delta)\\ 1 + \Delta & -1 \end{matrix}\right) \left(\begin{matrix} U_n\\ V_n \end{matrix}\right) &= \left(\begin{matrix} U_{n-1} + kg_1U_{n-1}^2 - kU_{n-1}^3\\ 0 \end{matrix}\right) \end{align*}

As usual, we multiply each side of the equation by a test function

\begin{align*} \overrightarrow\varphi_i = \left(\begin{matrix} \phi_i\\ \psi_i \end{matrix}\right) \end{align*}

and then integrate over the domain \(\Omega\) to get the equation

\begin{align*} \int_\Omega \left(\begin{matrix} \phi_i\\ \psi_i \end{matrix}\right)\cdot\left(\begin{matrix} 1 - kr & k(1 + \Delta)\\ 1 + \Delta & -1 \end{matrix}\right) \left(\begin{matrix} U_n\\ V_n \end{matrix}\right) &= \int_\Omega \left(\begin{matrix} \phi_i\\ \psi_i \end{matrix}\right)\cdot\left(\begin{matrix} U_{n-1} + kg_1U_{n-1}^2 - kU_{n-1}^3\\ 0 \end{matrix}\right)\\ \end{align*}

We can expand our solution vector in this basis

\begin{align*} \int_\Omega \sum_j u_j\left(\begin{matrix} \phi_i\\ \psi_i \end{matrix}\right)\cdot\left(\begin{matrix} 1 - kr & k(1 + \Delta)\\ 1 + \Delta & -1 \end{matrix}\right) \left(\begin{matrix} \phi_j\\ \psi_j \end{matrix}\right) &= \int_\Omega\left(\begin{matrix} \phi_i\\ \psi_i \end{matrix}\right)\cdot\left(\begin{matrix} U_{n-1} + kg_1U_{n-1}^2 - kU_{n-1}^3\\ 0 \end{matrix}\right) \end{align*}

and finally expand out the matrix multiplication and dot products, then apply the divergence theorem to obtain a single equation:

\begin{align*} \sum_j u_j \int_\Omega[(1 - kr)\phi_i\phi_j + k\phi_i\psi_j - k\nabla\phi_i\nabla\psi_j + \psi_i\phi_j - \nabla\psi_i\nabla\psi_j - \psi_i\psi_j] &= \int_\Omega\phi_i(U_{n-1} + kg_1U_{n-1}^2 - kU_{n-1}^3) \end{align*}

This last equation represents matrix multiplication of the solution vector by the \(i^{th}\) row of the system matrix, and the left hand side without the summation or \(u_j\) term is what we use to compute the \((i, j)^{th}\) entry of the system matrix.

Boundary Conditions and Choosing a Suitable Domain

This code implements both zero Dirichlet and zero Neumann boundary conditions. Both of these conditions affect the patterns that form. To minimize this effect, we use Neumann boundary conditions and we choose the boundary to be some multiple of the wave number. For example, this code chooses the square mesh to have a side length of \(6\cdot 2\pi\). For all other domains used, we chose a domain size with a similar area to that of the square. For instance, we solve on a torus with outer radius 9 and inner radius 4 because this results in exactly the same area as the square. Note that this is not strictly necessary for the code to function, but does make it easier to compare results between different geometries.

Initial Conditions and Parameters

The code implements two main types of initial conditions: random initial conditions, and creating a small initial hot spot. The SH equation is interesting because it describes pattern formation and self-organization, so choosing random initial conditions allows for this to be observed. Note that the results shown below were all run with the initial seed 314, which was arbitrarily chosen. Setting a fixed seed is useful for comparing pattern formation with different choices of parameters in the SH equation.

The hot spot initial condition is useful for the opposite reason: it is very simple, but it lets us see what happens to a single pattern "wave" as it propagates along our surface. This is particularly useful in distinguishing the effect of curvature and geometry on pattern propagation.

As previously mentioned, we chose \(k_c = 1\) and \(r = 0.3\) for this code. We then let \(g_1\) be the parameter that we change to vary the patterns formed. On the plane, increasing the value of \(g_1\) allows for the formation of hexagonal grids rather than just ripples. Varying \(g_1\) does something similar to patterns on a curved manifold, though with notably different effects in some cases. Increasing \(g_1\) also causes the solution to grow larger in magnitude at certain points.

Checking Convergence

We checked the convergence of this code using 3 tests: we confirmed that a constant initial condition remained constant and converged to a solution that was verified using an ordinary differential equation, we checked that solutions on the square converged across mesh refinements, and we checked that solutions converged over refinements of the timestep on the finest mesh.

Below are the results of several runs of constant initial conditions

image

We also validated that given a fixed random start on a very fine mesh, refining the timestep resulted in the same final solution. The initial condition for each is shown above, While the final solutions are shown in the matrix below. Note that the timestep begins at 1/25 and the denominator increases by 25 across each row, to a max of 1/200 in the bottom right:

image

We validated that solutions converged across mesh refinement by defining psuedorandom functions \(\displaystyle f(x) = \sum_{n=1}^{10} C_n \sin\left(\frac{16x}{3i}\right)\) and \(\displaystyle g(y) = \sum_{n=1}^{10} D_n \sin\left(\frac{16y}{3i}\right)\), where \(C_i\) and \(D_i\) are randomly chosen in the range \((-\sqrt{r}, \sqrt{r})\). The overall pseudorandom function is \(h(x) = f(x)g(y)\). Note that the period of the sine waves was chosen so that the smallest wave could be resolved by a mesh refinement of 7 or higher. The following matrix shows the initial and final solution ranging from a refinement of 0 to a refinement of 7:

Results

We can see the effects of varying the \(g_1\) parameter and the effects of curvature using the hot spot initial condition. On the plane, an initial hot spot creates one ripple wave, which breaks into discrete pieces as \(g_1\) is increased. In the matrix below, \(g_1\) is increased by 0.2 starting from 0 to a maximum value of 1.4. Note that each final solution is at 100 time units:

image

On the cylinder, the front looks similar to the square, but the back has an overlapping wave pattern:

image

On the sphere, the hot spot generates a single wave. Note that this may be due to the fact that our sphere has a surface area proportional to the period of our pattern wave.

image

On the torus, the pattern propagates similar to the cylinder, with some minor imperfections

image

But on the back side of the torus, we see wave overlapping and spot patterns forming

image

On shapes with stranger curvature, we can see that the pattern wave has a tendency to break apart when crossing lines of curvature. This shape was made by warping the boundary of a cylinder by a cosine wave, and is equivalent to the surface of revolution bounded by \(1 + 0.5\cos(\frac{\pi}{10}x)\)

Finally, here is a small selection of random initial conditions and the patterns that form. Each image sequence was taken at times 0, 10, 25, 50, and 100:

Counts total time ellapsed

  time = 0.0;

Counts number of iterations

Sets the random seed so runs are repeatable, remove for varying random initial conditions

  std::srand(314);
 
  InitialCondition<spacedim, MESH, ICTYPE> initial_conditions(r, 0.5);
 

Applies the initial conditions to the old_solution

  VectorTools::interpolate(dof_handler,

  old_solution);
  solution = old_solution;
 
void interpolate(const Mapping< dim, spacedim > &mapping, const DoFHandler< dim, spacedim > &dof, const Function< spacedim, typename VectorType::value_type > &function, VectorType &vec, const ComponentMask &component_mask={})

Outputs initial solution

  output_results();
 

Sets up the quadrature formula and FEValues object

  const QGauss<dim> quadrature_formula(degree + 2);
 
  FEValues<dim, spacedim> fe_values(fe, quadrature_formula,
 
  const unsigned int dofs_per_cell = fe.n_dofs_per_cell();

The vector which stores the global indices that each local index connects to

  std::vector<types::global_dof_index> local_dof_indices(dofs_per_cell);
 

Extracts the finite elements associated to u and v

Loops over the cells to create the system matrix. We do this only once becase the timestep is constant

  for(const auto &cell : dof_handler.active_cell_iterators()){
  cell_matrix = 0;
  cell_rhs = 0;
 
  fe_values.reinit(cell);
 
  cell->get_dof_indices(local_dof_indices);
 
  for(const unsigned int q_index : fe_values.quadrature_point_indices()){
 
  for(const unsigned int i : fe_values.dof_indices()){

These are the ith finite elements associated to u and v

  const double phi_i_u = fe_values[u].value(i, q_index);
  const Tensor<1, spacedim> grad_phi_i_u = fe_values[u].gradient(i, q_index);
  const double phi_i_v = fe_values[v].value(i, q_index);
  const Tensor<1, spacedim> grad_phi_i_v = fe_values[v].gradient(i, q_index);
 
  for(const unsigned int j : fe_values.dof_indices())
  {

These are the jth finite elements associated to u and v

  const double phi_j_u = fe_values[u].value(j, q_index);
  const Tensor<1, spacedim> grad_phi_j_u = fe_values[u].gradient(j, q_index);
  const double phi_j_v = fe_values[v].value(j, q_index);
  const Tensor<1, spacedim> grad_phi_j_v = fe_values[v].gradient(j, q_index);
 

This formula comes from expanding the PDE system

  cell_matrix(i, j) += (phi_i_u*phi_j_u - time_step*r*phi_i_u*phi_j_u
  + time_step*phi_i_u*phi_j_v - time_step*grad_phi_i_u*grad_phi_j_v
  + phi_i_v*phi_j_u - grad_phi_i_v*grad_phi_j_u
  - phi_i_v*phi_j_v)*fe_values.JxW(q_index);
  }
  }
  }
 

Loops over the dof indices to fill the entries of the system_matrix with the local data

  for(unsigned int i : fe_values.dof_indices()){
  for(unsigned int j : fe_values.dof_indices()){
  system_matrix.add(local_dof_indices[i],
  local_dof_indices[j],
  cell_matrix(i, j));
  }
  }
  }
 

Loops over time, incrementing by timestep, to create the RHS, solve the linear system, then output the result

  while (time <= end_time)
  {

Increments time and timestep_number

  time += time_step;
  ++timestep_number;
 

Outputs to console the number of iterations and current time. Currently outputs once every "second"

  if(timestep_number%timestep_denominator == 0){
  std::cout << "Time step " << timestep_number << " at t=" << time
  << std::endl;
  }
 

Resets the system_rhs vector. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ENSURE THE SYSTEM IS SOLVED CORRECTLY AT EACH TIMESTEP

  system_rhs = 0;
 

Loops over cells, then quadrature points, then dof indices to construct the RHS

  for(const auto &cell : dof_handler.active_cell_iterators()){

Resets the cell_rhs. THIS IS ALSO VERY IMPORTANT TO ENSURE THE SYSTEM IS SOLVED CORRECTLY

  cell_rhs = 0;
 

Resets the FEValues object to only the current cell

  fe_values.reinit(cell);
 
  cell->get_dof_indices(local_dof_indices);
 

Loop over the quadrature points

  for(const unsigned int q_index : fe_values.quadrature_point_indices()){

Stores the value of the previous solution at the quadrature point

  double Un1 = 0;
 

Loops over the dof indices to get the value of Un1

  for(const unsigned int i : fe_values.dof_indices()){
  Un1 += old_solution(local_dof_indices[i])*fe_values[u].value(i, q_index);
  }
 

Loops over the dof indices, using Un1 to construct the RHS for the current timestep. Un1 is used to account for the nonlinear terms in the SH equation

  for(const unsigned int i : fe_values.dof_indices()){
  cell_rhs(i) += (Un1 + time_step*g1*std::pow(Un1, 2) - time_step*k*std::pow(Un1, 3))
  *fe_values[u].value(i, q_index)*fe_values.JxW(q_index);
  }
  }
 
::VectorizedArray< Number, width > pow(const ::VectorizedArray< Number, width > &, const Number p)

Loops over the dof indices to store the local data in the global RHS vector

  for(unsigned int i : fe_values.dof_indices()){
  system_rhs(local_dof_indices[i]) += cell_rhs(i);
  }
 
 
  }

This is where Dirichlet conditions are applied, or Neumann conditions if the code is commented out

  /* {
  BoundaryValues<spacedim> boundary_values_function;
  boundary_values_function.set_time(time);
 
  std::map<types::global_dof_index, double> boundary_values;

  boundary_values);
 
  MatrixTools::apply_boundary_values(boundary_values,
  system_matrix,
  solution,
  system_rhs);
  } */
 
  solve_time_step();
 

Outputs the solution at regular intervals, currently once every "second" The SH equation evolves slowly in time, so this saves disk space

  if(timestep_number%timestep_denominator == 0){
  output_results();
  }
 
  old_solution = solution;
  }

Extracts the boundary mesh with ID 0, which happens to be the tube part of the cylinder

  GridGenerator::extract_boundary_mesh(cylinder, triangulation, {0});
 

The manifold information is lost upon boundary extraction. This sets the mesh boundary type to be a cylinder again

An array of mesh types. We itterate over this to allow for longer runs without having to stop the code

An array of initial condition types. We itterate this as well, for the same reason

The number of times we refine the hypercube mesh

Switch statement that determines what template parameters are used by the solver object. Template parameters must be known at compile time, so we cannot pass this as a varible unfortunately. In each case, we create a filename string (named appropriately for the particular case), output to the console what we are running, create the solver object, and call run(). Note that for the cylinder, sphere, and sinusoid we decrease the refinement number by 1. This keeps the number of dofs used in these cases comparable to the number of dofs on the 2D hypercube (otherwise the number of dofs is much larger). For the torus, we decrease the refinement number by 2.
