报告题目：Time-Fractional Allen-CahnEquations: Analysis and Numerical Methods
报告摘要：In this work, weconsider a time-fractional Allen-Cahn equation, where the conventional firstorder time derivative is replaced by a Caputo fractional derivative with order$\alpha\in(0,1)$. First, the well-posedness and (limited) smoothing propertyare systematically analyzed, by using the maximal $L^p$ regularity offractional evolution equations and the fractional Gr\"onwall's inequality.We also show the maximum principle like their conventional local-in-timecounterpart. Precisely, the time-fractional equation preserves the propertythat the solution only takes value between the wells of the double-wellpotential when the initial data does the same. Second, after discretizing thefractional derivative by backward Euler convolution quadrature, we developseveral unconditionally solvable and stable time stepping schemes, i.e., convexsplitting scheme, weighted convex splitting scheme and linear weighted stabilizedscheme. Meanwhile, we study the discrete energy dissipation property (in aweighted average sense), which is important for gradient flow type models, forthe two weighted schemes. Finally, by using a discrete version of fractionalGr\"onwall's inequality and maximal $\ell^p$ regularity, we prove that theconvergence rates of those time-stepping schemes are $O(\tau^\alpha)$ withoutany extra regularity assumption on the solution. We also present extensivenumerical results to support our theoretical findings and to offer new insighton the time-fractional Allen-Cahn dynamics.
