Discontinuous Galerkin for the Radiative Transport Equation

Jean-Luc Guermond, Guido Kanschat, Jean C. Ragusa

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This note presents some recent results regarding the approximation of the linear radiative transfer equation using discontinuous Galerkin methods. The locking effect occurring in the diffusion limit with the upwind numerical flux is investigated and a correction technique is proposed.
