Asymptotic least squares approximation for highly oscillatory differential equations

Abstract

This talk presents a new approach for approximating highly oscillatory ordinary differential equations. By using the asymptotic expansion in a least squares system, we are able to obtain a result that preserves the asymptotic accuracy of the expansion, while converging rapidly to the exact solution. We are thus able to accurately approximate such differential equations by solving a very small linear system. We apply this method to the computation of highly oscillatory integrals, as well as second order oscillatory differential equations.
