Abstract

top
In this paper, a class of cell centered finite volume schemes, on general unstructured meshes, for a linear convection-diffusion problem, is studied. The convection and the diffusion are respectively approximated by means of an upwind scheme and the so called diamond cell method [4]. Our main result is an error estimate of order h, assuming only the W2,p (for p>2) regularity of the continuous solution, on a mesh of quadrangles. The proof is based on an extension of the ideas developed in [12]. Some new difficulties arise here, due to the weak regularity of the solution, and the necessity to approximate the entire gradient, and not only its normal component, as in [12].
