Structure-preserving splitting methods for stochastic logarithmic Schrödinger equation via regularized energy approximation
In this paper, we study two kinds of structure-preserving splitting methods, including the Lie--Trotter type splitting method and the finite difference type method, for the stochasticlogarithmic Schrödinger equation (SlogS equation) via a regularized energy approximation. We first introduce a regularized SlogS equation with a small parameter $0<\epsilon\ll1$ which approximates the SlogS equation and avoids the singularity near zero density. Then we present a priori estimates, the regularized entropy and energy, and the stochastic symplectic structure of the proposed numerical methods. Furthermore, we derive both the strong convergence rates and the convergence rates of the regularized entropy and energy. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first result concerning the construction and analysis of numerical methods for stochastic Schrödinger equations with logarithmic nonlinearities.
