Analysis of Chorin-Type Projection Methods for the Stochastic Stokes Equations with General Multiplicative Noises

by   Xiaobing Feng, et al.

This paper is concerned with numerical analysis of two fully discrete Chorin-type projection methods for the stochastic Stokes equations with general non-solenoidal multiplicative noise. The first scheme is the standard Chorin scheme and the second one is a modified Chorin scheme which is designed by employing the Helmholtz decomposition on the noise function at each time step to produce a projected divergence-free noise and a "pseudo pressure" after combining the original pressure and the curl-free part of the decomposition. Optimal order rates of the convergence are proved for both velocity and pressure approximations of these two (semi-discrete) Chorin schemes. It is crucial to measure the errors in appropriate norms. The fully discrete finite element methods are formulated by discretizing both semi-discrete Chorin schemes in space by the standard finite element method. Suboptimal order error estimates are derived for both fully discrete methods. It is proved that all spatial error constants contain a growth factor k^-1/2, where k denotes the time step size, which explains the deteriorating performance of the standard Chorin scheme when k→ 0 and the space mesh size is fixed as observed earlier in the numerical tests of [9]. Numerical results are also provided to guage the performance of the proposed numerical methods and to validate the sharpness of the theoretical error estimates.
