Abstract [en]
We consider two hyperbolic systems in first order form of different size posed on two domains. Our ambition is to derive general conditions for when the two systems can and cannot be coupled. The adjoint equations are derived and well-posedness of the primal and dual problems is discussed. By applying the energy method, interface conditions for the primal and dual problems are derived such that the continuous problems are well posed. The equations are discretized using a high order finite difference method in summation-by-parts form and the interface conditions are imposed weakly in a stable way, using penalty formulations. It is shown that one specic choice of penalty matrices leads to a dual consistent scheme. By considering an example, it is shown that the correct physical coupling conditions are contained in the set of well posed coupling conditions. It is also shown that dual consistency leads to superconverging functionals and reduced stiffness.
