In what follows, we consider the Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) technique of model order reduction, for a parameterized quasi-nonlinear parabolic equation.
A POD basis associated with a set of reference values of the characteristic parameters is considered. From this basis, a parametric reduced order model (ROM) projecting the initial equation is constructed.
A mathematical a priori estimate of the parametric squared L2-error induced by this projection is developed. This later estimate is based on both, the parametric behavior of the squared L2-ROM-error thanks to the resolution of a Ricatti differential inequality in the parametric ROM-error, and the convergence rate of the parametric ROM to the full problem, via the augmentation of the basis dimension. Indeed, under restrictive conditions on the solutions regularity of such equations, we are able to precise the slope of the logarithm of the squared L2-norm of the ROM error, as a function of the logarithm of the basis modes number.
Numerical experiments of our theoretical estimate, are presented for the 2D Navier-Stokes equations in the case of an unsteady and incompressible fluid flow in a channel around a circular cylinder.
A mathematical a priori estimate of the parametric squared L2-error induced by the model reduction by POD is developped for a parameterized quasi-nonlinear parabolic equation. This estimate is obtained thanks to the resolution of a Ricatti differential inequality.

Statement of the problem
High-dimensional Partial Differential Equations (PDE) intervene widely in applications of the field of Mechanics (Fluid Mechanics, Solid Mechanics, etc...). The simulation cost of such equations is in general very high. Model reduction techniques are a very good solution for such problems: They enable an approximation of these equations in subspaces of small dimension. These are applied for Fluid-Structure Interaction problems –, stability study , shape optimization problems ,, optimal control problems , etc....
In general, the reduction spaces are obtained from the knowledge of a solution flow. Then, one of the challenges for model reduction, is to enable a good prediction of the solutions behavior in parametric evolution problems: We cite the Greedy algorithm, that enriches a reduction subspace computed for a particular set of parametric values, by evaluating the errors obtained a posteriori by the reduction of the full numerical solutions (obtained for example by finite element dicretisations of the complete model problem) associated with other parametric values. Obviously, this algorithm needs to be accelerated in a way to enable an estimate of the new parameters' values for which the reduced order model (ROM) error is maximal and the computation of a new reduction basis is becoming crucial. At this step only, a complete resolution of the model equations is done for the new parameters' values chosen by the algorithm. Two important questions can be asked:
What is the parametric confidence region of a given reduced order model?
How can we improve the performance of a reduced order model when parameters are variying significantly?
Several techniques of model reduction exist to build a good candidate within the parametric ROMs:
We consider first the reduced basis (RB) method. It is based on showing a given parametric solution as a finite linear combination of solutions associated respectively with particular parameters values. More precisely, we cite the work of Maday et al. , who developed, for a parameterized elliptic PDE which is symmetric and coercive, an a priori convergence theory of a parametric RB approximation to the parametric full finite element solution. The RB is constructed with association to a sample subset of parametric values which are logarithmically distributed: this allows an a priori convergence of the Greedy algorithm .
They were interested also, in showing an a posteriori bound of the squared parametric L2-ROM-RB error, of which computation at each parameter value is less expensive than the parametric ROM-error itself as it is usually done in the original Greedy algorithm. The a posteriori character of this error bound is due to its dependency on the squared residual norm of the parametric ROM. We precise also, that the later error bound is obtained by applying classical energetic methods to the discrete equation in the difference between the full numerical solution and the reduced one, so one can bound the ROM-error by the already precised a posteriori residual norm. This technique was applied in the context of offline-online procedures, in the following cases: parameterized linear elliptic PDE which is coercive and not symmetric ; nonaffine linear elliptic and parabolic equations and nonlinear elliptic and parabolic equations ; parameterized linear parabolic equation with a nonaffine source term ; the model Burgers equation ,.
A very adaptive technique, for building a parametric ROM is the Proper Generalized Decomposition (PGD) method. It is based on building an approximation of the initial PDE as a finite combination of functions of separate variables, including not only the space and time variables, but also all eventual parameters that could be associated with the initial equations. These functions and their coefficients in the later expression are obtained by an iterated algorithm which minimizes the error with respect to the initial problem. This method was introduced by P. Ladevèze in the LATIN method ,, where he started by a space-time separation. Then, it was generalised by Chinesta et al. for multidimensional problems –.
It is still an important issue, to determine the confidence interval of a ROM-POD for problems involving parametric evolution. There were few works in this context:
Amsallem et al. –, build a geometric interpolation algorithm of ROM-PODs at different parametric values, in the case of parameterized linear structural dynamics problems. The idea is to interpolate various reduced order, symmetric and positive definite matrices of the complete problem, corresponding each one to a set of characteristic parameters. This interpolation is done in the tangent space to the manifold of symmetric positive definite matrices. Numerical experiments show that the obtained reduced order model, is efficient to represent dynamics asssociated with other parametric sets than the reference ones.
There are also techniques based on an a posteriori indicator of the POD modes number we need to add, in order to decrease the ROM-error, when the parameters are varying. Volkwein et al. – were interested in such estimates for solving linear quadratic elliptic and parabolic optimal control problems. Therefore, they developed an a posteriori estimator of the error between the reduced optimal solution and the optimal one. Also, this estimator is based on the residual term we add when solving the reduced adjoint equation. The reduced optimal solution is good when a tolerated error is not trespassed, otherwise we increase the dimension of the reduced optimal control problem.
Besides all these works, we are interested in developing an a priori bound of the squared parametric L2-ROM-POD error in the case of a parameterized quasi-nonlinear parabolic equation. More precisely, our main issue is to give a mathematical criteria in order to determine a parametric confidence region for a reference POD basis. It appears also the control problem of the dimension of the associated parametric ROM-POD, so we can improve its performance if the parameters are varying considerably with respect to the reference ones.
This type of result will enable us not only to predict the validity extent of a reference reduced order model of fixed dimension with respect to parametric variation, but also to do an enrichement step of the ROM-dimension when necessary, thanks to an a priori indicator of the number of POD modes we need to add. So that, on the one hand the parametric ROM-error is not maximal when the parameters are varying considerably outside the confidence region determined already, and on the other hand the reduction concept is still available.
The result of this paper is an improvement of the one we developed in ,. Where we showed an a priori estimate of the parametric squared L2-error induced after the model reduction of parameterized semi-discrete quasi-linear parabolic problems, by a reference POD basis associated with a reference solution for a base parameter value. Indeed, the resolution of a Ricatti differential inequality gives sharper a priori upper bounds compared to the ones we developped in ,, where we used the Gronwall lemma to solve a first order differential inequality in the parametric ROM-error. Moreover, we present an improvement of this type of results by considering an enriched POD basis associated with a reference solution and its parametric derivative at the same parameter value.
More precisely, the mathematical formulation of the problem is given as follows:
Mathematical formulation of the problem
∀v1, v2, v3∈V, B(v1,v2,v3)=(f(v1).g(∇v2),v3) X , where f and g are respectively an valued Lipschitz application defined on and an valued Lipschitz application defined on .
∀v1, v2∈V, a(v1,v2;λ) is a bilinear symmetric and positive form, which is continuous on V × V and coercive on . Moreover, we suppose that a is α− Holder with respect to λ, with Lipschitz constant equal to 1, i.e., |a(v1,v2;λ1)−a(v1,v2;λ2)|≤ ∥λ1−λ2∥ α a(v1,v2).
∀v1, v2∈V,S(v1,v2)=(s(v1),v2) X , where s is an valued Lipschitz application defined on .
∀v∈V, l t (v)=(h(t),v) X , where h is given in .
(.) denotes the scalar product in the corresponding space. And, (), denote the parameter vector of these equations.
A solution of this equation associated with a reference parameter vector λ0 is computed once and for all. A POD basis in X, associated with on a time interval (0,T), will lead to construct a ROM-POD describing the evolution of an approximation of u λ , in a subspace of dimension N very small. We denote the POD eigenvalues sequence associated with the POD basis.
The problem that appears naturally, is to find a way to control the parametric evolution: what is ?
Then, the question which arises naturally is the following: to what extent remains an accurate approximation to u λ ?
In whats follows, we present our main results formally, with a lack in rigor:
Reference POD basis associated with a reference parameter vector λ0
Formal result 1.

Improvement of the ROM-POD confidence interval: Enriched POD basis containing the parametric sensitivity of the solution
Formal result 2.
∇ λ u λ (λ0)∈L2(0,T;X).
a POD basis associated to snapshots of and ∇ λ u λ (λ0)(t) on (0,T).
Result 1 establishes an a priori estimate of the decrease rate of the squared ROM-POD error, especially when the two parameters λ and λ0 are distant.
Nevertheless, the usefulness of this result is improved thanks to result 1 under regularity conditions on the diffrenece between two solution flows associated respectively with a parameter λ and the base parameter λ0. Indeed, result 1 shows for a given class of solutions to equation (1), a very good efficiency of a reference reduced order model by a POD basis associated with a base parameter value λ0.
Also, not to mention supplementary regularity conditions on the solution flows, the estimate (5) improves the validity domain of the reduced order model beside our previous result (estimate (3)) thanks to the term depending on ∥λ−λ0∥4, and to the remainder of the expanded-POD eigenvalues sum multiplying ∥λ−λ0∥2, of which decrease rate is optimal thanks to the POD construction.

Completion of the proof of result 1
The Galerkin error is controled by ; This is shown easily by reducing the equation describing the evolution of .
Therefore, the parametric squared POD-Galerkin error is essentially controled by the remainder . Then, based on the previous proposition 2, a way to study the decrease rate of this remainder will be by considering the remainder of the primitives sum of the reference POD modes : This is shown simply by applying successively the Green formula and the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality to each one of the orthogonal projection coefficients .

This ends the proof of result 1.
Completion of the proof of heuristic result 1
By applying successively the Green formula and the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality and by repeating this step m-times to each , we prove that is finally controled by the remainder of the m-iterated primitives sum of the reference POD modes.
Which concludes to the result.
Completion of the proof of result 2
Thanks to proposition (1), the first restrictive condition of result 2 is verified for a quasi-nonlinear equation of the form (1). Then, we write the following Taylor expansion of u λ to the order 1:
, where is a function of ∥λ−λ0∥2.
Therefore, we deduce the a priori estimate (5).
This ends the proof.
We were interested in mathematical a priori error bounds of a parametric ROM by a reference POD. A mathematical a priori estimate of the parametric squared L2-error induced by the corresponding ROM is developped, thanks to the resolution of a Ricatti differential inequality.
This result is an improvement of the one we developed in , where we showed an a priori estimate of the parametric squared L2-error induced after the model reduction of parameterized semi-discrete quasi-linear parabolic problems, by a reference POD basis associated with a reference solution. We obtained here sharper a priori estimates. Moreover, when we considered the enriched POD basis, the parametric ROM-POD error was better controled. Which shows an improvement of the ROM-POD confidence interval with respect to parametric variation.
Concerning the prospects of this work, we hope to be able to apply this type of results as an a priori convergence technique of enrichement algorithms as the POD-Greedy one.
It is important also to be able to use these a priori techniques for errors estimate as a sharp a posteriori errors indicator.
Furthermore, it is important to apply these results to interpolation techniques (using the Lie group theory) of reduced order models, available each one in a confidence region around a reference parameter.
