On the Convergence of Discontinuous Galerkin/Hermite Spectral Methods for the Vlasov-Poisson System
Prof. Francis Filbet
Université Toulouse III - Paul Sabatier (France)

We prove the convergence of discontinuous Galerkin approximations for the Vlasov-Poisson system written as an hyperbolic system using Hermite polynomials in velocity. To obtain stability properties, we introduce a suitable weighted L2 space, with a time dependent weight, and first prove global stability for the weighted L2 norm and propagation of regularity. Then we prove error estimates between the numerical solution and the smooth solution to the Vlasov-Poisson system.
