内容摘要Abstract:

For the time-fractional phase field models, the corresponding energy dissipation law has not been well studied on both the continuous and the discrete levels. In this talk, we shall address this open issue. More precisely, we prove for the first time that the time-fractional phase field models indeed admit an energy dissipation law of an integral type. In the discrete level, we propose a class of finite difference schemes that can inherit the theoretical energy stability. Our discussion covers the time-fractional gradient systems, including the time-fractional Allen-Cahn equation, the time-fractional Cahn-Hilliard equation, and the time-fractional molecular beam epitaxy models. Numerical examples are presented to confirm the theoretical results. Moreover, a numerical study of the coarsening rate of random initial states depending on the fractional parameter $\alpha$ reveals that there are several coarsening stages for both the time-fractional Cahn-Hilliard equation and the time-fractional molecular beam epitaxy model, while there exists a $-\alpha/3$ power law coarsening stage. This is joint work with Prof. Tao Tang and Prof. Haijun Yu.
