A pseudospectral method for the one-dimensional fractional Laplacian on R
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we propose a novel pseudospectral method to approximate accurately and efficiently the fractional Laplacian without using truncation. More precisely, given a bounded regular function defined over R, we map the unbounded domain into a finite one, and represent the resulting function as a trigonometric series. Therefore, the central point of this paper is the computation of the fractional Laplacian of an elementary trigonometric function. As an application of the method, we also do the simulation of Fisher's equation with fractional Laplacian in the monostable case.
