Conservative numerical schemes for the Ostrovsky equation. (English) Zbl 1188.83030
Summary: The Ostrovsky equation describes gravity waves under the influence of Coriolis force. It is known that solutions of this equation conserve the \(L^{2}\) norm and an energy function that is determined non-locally. In this paper we propose four conservative numerical schemes for this equation: a finite difference scheme and a pseudospectral scheme that conserve the norm, and the same types of schemes that conserve the energy. A numerical comparison of these schemes is also provided, which indicates that the energy conservative schemes perform better than the norm conservative schemes.
