**ABSTRACT:**The internal energy and the spatiotemporal entropy of excitable systems are investigated with the lattice Boltzmann method. The numerical results show that the breakup of spiral wave is attributed to the inadequate supply of energy, i.e., the internal energy of system is smaller than the energy of self-sustained spiral wave. It is observed that the average internal energy of a regular wave state reduces with its spatiotemporal entropy decreasing. Interestingly, although the energy difference between two regular wave states is very small, the different states can be distinguished obviously due to the large difference between their spatiotemporal entropies. In addition, when the unstable spiral wave converts into the spatiotemporal chaos, the internal energy of system decreases, while the spatiotemporal entropy increases, which behaves as the thermodynamic entropy in an isolated system.Chinese Physics B 02/2011; 20(2):020510. · 1.15 Impact Factor - [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**In this work we proposed a lattice Boltzmann model for the nonlinear convection–diffusion equation (NCDE) with anisotropic diffusion. The constraints on the model for correctly recovering macroscopic equation are also carefully analyzed, which are ignored in some existing work. Detailed simulations of some 1D/2D NCDEs, including the nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLSE), Buckley–Leverett equation with discontinuous initial data, NCDE with anisotropic diffusion, and generalized Zakharov system, are performed. The numerical results obtained by the proposed model agree well with the analytical solutions and/or the numerical solutions reported in previous studies. It is also found that, for complex-valued NLSE, the model using a complex distribution function is superior to that using two real distribution functions for the real and imaginary parts of the NLSE separately.Computers & Mathematics with Applications 06/2011; 61:3443-3452. · 2.07 Impact Factor - [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**A general lattice Boltzmann (LB) model is proposed for solving nonlinear partial differential equations with the form $\partial_t \phi+\sum_{k=1}^{m} \alpha_k \partial_x^k \Pi_k (\phi)=0$, where $\alpha_k$ are constant coefficients, and $\Pi_k (\phi)$ are the known differential functions of $\phi$, $1\leq k\leq m \leq 6$. The model can be applied to the common nonlinear evolutionary equations, such as (m)KdV equation, KdV-Burgers equation, K($m,n$) equation, Kuramoto-Sivashinsky equation, and Kawahara equation, etc. Unlike the existing LB models, the correct constraints on moments of equilibrium distribution function in the proposed model are given by choosing suitable \emph{auxiliary-moments}, and how to exactly recover the macroscopic equations through Chapman-Enskog expansion is discussed in this paper. Detailed simulations of these equations are performed, and it is found that the numerical results agree well with the analytical solutions and the numerical solutions reported in previous studies.
