Journal of Computational Mathematics
2022, 40 ( 1):
For the five-point discrete formulae of directional derivatives in the finite point method, overcoming the challenge resulted from scattered point sets and making full use of the explicit expressions and accuracy of the formulae, this paper obtains a number of theoretical results:(1) a concise expression with definite meaning of the complicated directional difference coefficient matrix is presented, which characterizes the correlation between coefficients and the connection between coefficients and scattered geometric characteristics; (2) various expressions of the discriminant function for the solvability of numerical differentials along with the estimation of its lower bound are given, which are the bases for selecting neighboring points and making analysis; (3) the estimations of combinatorial elements and of each element in the directional difference coefficient matrix are put out, which exclude the existence of singularity. Finally, the theoretical analysis results are verified by numerical calculations.
The results of this paper have strong regularity, which lay the foundation for further research on the finite point method for solving partial differential equations.
