An augmented singular transform and its partial Newton method for finding new solutions Academic Article uri icon


  • 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. To find new solutions through the information provided by previously found solution(s), this paper is first to develop a new singular transform to change the local basin-barrier structure of the original problem in an infinite-dimensional space and then to propose an augmented partial Newton method to solve the transformed problem on the solution set. Mathematical justifications of the new formulation and method are established. Details on algorithm implementation are presented. Examples for two very different variational PDE problems are carried out to illustrate the method. Their numerical results are displayed by profile-contour plots and error/convergence data. The formulation and method developed in this paper can also be applied to solve multiple fixed point problems.
