# Godunov's theorem

Godunov's theorem In numerical analysis and computational fluid dynamics, Godunov's theorem — also known as Godunov's order barrier theorem — is a mathematical theorem important in the development of the theory of high resolution schemes for the numerical solution of partial differential equations.

The theorem states that: Linear numerical schemes for solving partial differential equations (PDE's), having the property of not generating new extrema (monotone scheme), can be at most first-order accurate.

Professor Sergei K. Godunov originally proved the theorem as a Ph.D. student at Moscow State University. It is his most influential work in the area of applied and numerical mathematics and has had a major impact on science and engineering, particularly in the development of methods used in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and other computational fields. One of his major contributions was to prove the theorem (Godunov, 1954; Godunov, 1959), that bears his name.

Aside Assume a continuum problem described by a PDE is to be computed using a numerical scheme based upon a uniform computational grid and a one-step, constant step-size, M grid point, integration algorithm, either implicit or explicit. Puis si {style d'affichage x_{j}=j,Delta x} et {displaystyle t^{n}=n,Delta t} , such a scheme can be described by {displaystyle sum limits _{m=1}^{M}{bêta _{m}}varphi _{j+m}^{n+1}=somme des limites _{m=1}^{M}{Alpha _{m}varphi _{j+m}^{n}}.quad quad (1)} Autrement dit, the solution {style d'affichage varphi _{j}^{n+1}} at time {displaystyle n+1} and location {displaystyle j} is a linear function of the solution at the previous time step {displaystyle n} . We assume that {style d'affichage bêta _{m}} determines {style d'affichage varphi _{j}^{n+1}} uniquely. À présent, since the above equation represents a linear relationship between {style d'affichage varphi _{j}^{n}} et {style d'affichage varphi _{j}^{n+1}} we can perform a linear transformation to obtain the following equivalent form, {style d'affichage varphi _{j}^{n+1}=somme des limites _{m}^{M}{gamma _{m}varphi _{j+m}^{n}}.quad quad (2)} Théorème 1: Monotonicity preserving The above scheme of equation (2) is monotonicity preserving if and only if {displaystyle gamma _{m}geq 0,quad forall m.quad quad (3)} Preuve - Godunov (1959) Cas 1: (sufficient condition) Présumer (3) applies and that {style d'affichage varphi _{j}^{n}} is monotonically increasing with {displaystyle j} .

Alors, car {style d'affichage varphi _{j}^{n}leq varphi _{j+1}^{n}leq cdots leq varphi _{j+m}^{n}} it therefore follows that {style d'affichage varphi _{j}^{n+1}leq varphi _{j+1}^{n+1}leq cdots leq varphi _{j+m}^{n+1}} car {style d'affichage varphi _{j}^{n+1}-varphi _{j-1}^{n+1}=somme des limites _{m}^{M}{gamma _{m}la gauche({varphi _{j+m}^{n}-varphi _{j+m-1}^{n}}droit)}geq 0.quad quad (4)} This means that monotonicity is preserved for this case.

Cas 2: (necessary condition) We prove the necessary condition by contradiction. Suppose que {displaystyle gamma _{p}^{}<0} for some {displaystyle p} and choose the following monotonically increasing {displaystyle varphi _{j}^{n}quad } , {displaystyle varphi _{i}^{n}=0,quad i0,quad xin mathbb {R} quad quad (10)} cannot be monotonicity preserving unless {displaystyle sigma =left|cright|{{Delta t} plus de {Delta x}}en mathbb {N} ,quad quad (11)} où {style d'affichage sigma } is the signed Courant–Friedrichs–Lewy condition (CFL) Numéro.

Preuve - Godunov (1959) Assume a numerical scheme of the form described by equation (2) and choose {displaystyle varphi left({0,X}droit)=gauche({{x over {Delta x}}-{1 plus de 2}}droit)^{2}-{1 plus de 4},quad varphi _{j}^{0}=gauche({j-{1 plus de 2}}droit)^{2}-{1 plus de 4}.quad quad (12)} The exact solution is {displaystyle varphi left({t,X}droit)=gauche({{{x-ct} plus de {Delta x}}-{1 plus de 2}}droit)^{2}-{1 plus de 4}.quad quad (13)} If we assume the scheme to be at least second-order accurate, it should produce the following solution exactly {style d'affichage varphi _{j}^{1}=gauche({j-sigma -{1 plus de 2}}droit)^{2}-{1 plus de 4},quad varphi _{j}^{0}=gauche({j-{1 plus de 2}}droit)^{2}-{1 plus de 4}.quad quad (14)} Substituting into equation (2) donne: {style d'affichage à gauche({j-sigma -{1 plus de 2}}droit)^{2}-{1 plus de 4}=somme des limites _{m}^{M}{gamma _{m}la gauche{{la gauche({j+m-{1 plus de 2}}droit)^{2}-{1 plus de 4}}droit}}.quad quad (15)} Suppose that the scheme IS monotonicity preserving, then according to the theorem 1 au dessus, {displaystyle gamma _{m}gq 0} .

À présent, it is clear from equation (15) ce {style d'affichage à gauche({j-sigma -{1 plus de 2}}droit)^{2}-{1 plus de 4}geq 0,quad forall j.quad quad (16)} Présumer {displaystyle sigma >0,quad sigma notin mathbb {N} } and choose {displaystyle j} tel que {displaystyle j>sigma >left(j-1right)} . This implies that {style d'affichage à gauche({j-sigma }droit)>0} et {style d'affichage à gauche({j-sigma -1}droit)<0} . It therefore follows that, {displaystyle left({j-sigma -{1 over 2}}right)^{2}-{1 over 4}=left(j-sigma right)left(j-sigma -1right)<0,quad quad (17)} which contradicts equation (16) and completes the proof. The exceptional situation whereby {displaystyle sigma =left|cright|{{Delta t} over {Delta x}}in mathbb {N} } is only of theoretical interest, since this cannot be realised with variable coefficients. Also, integer CFL numbers greater than unity would not be feasible for practical problems. See also Finite volume method Flux limiter Total variation diminishing References Godunov, Sergei K.
