Abstract: Neural network-based methods for solving differential equations have been gaining traction. They work by improving the differential equation residuals of a neural network on a sample of points in each iteration. However, most of them employ standard sampling schemes like uniform or perturbing equally spaced points. We present a novel sampling scheme which samples points adversarially to maximize the loss of the current solution estimate. A sampler architecture is described along with the loss terms used for training. Finally, we demonstrate that this scheme outperforms pre-existing schemes by comparing both on a number of problems.
