ABSTRACT: The finite-difference Gaussian rules (a.k.a. spectrally-matched or optimal grids) were originally invented to obtain high accuracy of Dirichlet-to-Newman maps for truncation of unbounded computational domains. Their construction is mainly based on Stieltjes-Krein continued-fraction techniques. It yields spectral superconvergence at a priori chosen boundaries using simple standard staggered second-order finite-differrence or finite-volume schemes. In particular, this approach has shown good success in applications to optimal discretization of perfectly matched layers and the finite-difference solution of the inverse electrical-impedance tomography and wave problems.
