Abstract

The considered systems contain dynamics on different time scales caused by different types and stiffnesses in potentials. For the slow motion, a coarse approximation suffices, but to resolve the fast motion, high accuracy is required. To avoid unnecessarily high computational costs, the idea here is to use polynomials of different degrees to approximate the slow and fast dynamics and quadrature formulas of different orders to approximate the different action terms. The approach is extended to holonomically constrained systems, where the Lagrange multiplier theorem is used to introduce constraint forces constraining the motion to the constraint manifold. The computational efficiency of the integrators is shown by means of two examples. (© 2017 Wiley‐VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
