Dynamical behavior of a nondiffusive scheme for the advection equation

Abstract : We study the long time behaviour of a dynamical system strongly linked to the anti-diffusive scheme of Despr\'es and Lagoutiere for the $1$-dimensional transport equation. This scheme is nondiffusive in the sens that discontinuities are not smoothened out through time. Numerical simulations indicates that the scheme error's is uniformly bounded with time. We prove that this scheme is overcompressive when the Courant--Friedrichs--Levy number is 1/2: when the initial data is nondecreasing, the approximate solution becomes a Heaviside function. In a special case, we also understand how plateaus are formed in the solution and their stability, a distinctive feature of the Despr\'es and Lagoutiere scheme.
