Abstract / Description of output

Numerical integration methods for Hamiltonian systems are of importance across many disciplines, including musical acoustics, where many systems of interest are very nearly lossless. Of particular interest are methods possessing a conserved pseudoenergy. Though most such methods have an implicit character, an explicit method was proposed recently by Marazzato et al. The proposed method relies on a continuous integration which must be performed exactly in order for the conservation property to hold—as a result, it holds only approximately under numerical quadrature. Here, we show an explicit scheme for Hamiltonian integration, with a different choice of pseudoenergy, which is exactly conserved. A fast implementation is possible through the use of structured matrix inversion. The application to the case of fully nonlinear string vibration is illustrated.
