# An adaptive splitting algorithm for the sine-Gordon equation

• This preliminary investigation concerns an adaptive splitting scheme for the numerical solution of two dimensional sine-Gordon equation. The dispersive wave equation allows for soliton-alike solutions, an ubiquitous phenomenon in a large variety of physical problems. The system of nonlinear differential equations obtained via the method of lines is then attached by a recurrence procedure whose solution yields second order accuracy. The numerical solution of the system is designed using the Peaceman-Rachford splitting to avoid solving a nonlinear system of equations at each step and allows more efficient implementations of the difference scheme.
