This paper aims to investigate the stability and numerical approximation of the Sivashinsky equations. We apply the Galerkin meshfree method based on the radial basis functions (RBFs) to discretize the spatial variables and use a group presenting scheme for the time discretization. Because the RBFs do not generally vanish on the boundary, they can not directly approximate a Dirichlet boundary problem by Galerkin method. To avoid this difficulty, an auxiliary parametrized technique is used to convert a Dirichlet boundary condition to a Robin one. In addition, we extend a stability theorem on the higher order elliptic equations such as the biharmonic equation by the eigenfunction expansion.
Some experimental results will be presented to show the performance of the proposed method.
