A BDF2 decoupled numerical scheme for resistive magnetohydrodynamic equations
Prof. Cheng Wang
University of Massachusetts Dartmouth

A decoupled BDF2 numerical scheme is proposed and analyzed to solve the incompressible resistive magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations. In the numerical design, the pressure variable in the fluid field equation is computed through solving a Poisson equation, and a linear and decoupled method is adopted to separate both the magnetic and  the fluid field functions from the original system. The finite element method is used as the spatial discretization. As a result, the original system is divided into several sub-systems for which the numerical solutions can be obtained efficiently. The unique solvability, the unconditional energy stability, and particularly optimal error estimates will be theoretically established for the proposed scheme. Numerical results are presented to validate the theoretical results.
