Abstract

top
The penalty method when applied to the Stokes problem provides a very efficient algorithm for solving any discretization of this problem since it gives rise to a system of two equations where the unknowns are uncoupled. For a spectral or spectral element discretization of the Stokes problem, we prove a posteriori estimates that allow us to optimize the penalty parameter as a function of the discretization parameter. Numerical experiments confirm the interest of this technique.
