On the KleinGordon equation originating on a curve and applications to the tsunami runup problemGaines, Jody; Rybkin, Alexei; Bueler, Ed; Nicolsky, Dmitry (201905)Our goal is to study the linear KleinGordon equation in matrix form, with initial conditions originating on a curve. This equation has applications to the CrossSectionally Averaged Shallow Water equations, i.e. a system of nonlinear partial differential equations used for modeling tsunami waves within narrow bays, because the general CarrierGreenspan transform can turn the CrossSectionally Averaged Shallow Water equations (for shorelines of constant slope) into a particular form of the matrix KleinGordon equation. Thus the matrix KleinGordon equation governs the runup of tsunami waves along shorelines of constant slope. If the narrow bay is Ushaped, the CrossSectionally Averaged Shallow Water equations have a known general solution via solving the transformed matrix KleinGordon equation. However, the initial conditions for our KleinGordon equation are given on a curve. Thus our goal is to solve the matrix KleinGordon equation with known conditions given along a curve. Therefore we present a method to extrapolate values on a line from conditions on a curve, via the Taylor formula. Finally, to apply our solution to the CrossSectionally Averaged Shallow Water equations, our numerical simulations demonstrate how Gaussian and Nwave profiles affect the runup of tsunami waves within various Ushaped bays.
