Abstract

top
A nonlinear elliptic partial differential equation with homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions is examined. The problem describes for instance a stationary heat conduction in nonlinear inhomogeneous and anisotropic media. For finite elements of degree k 1 we prove the optimal rates of convergence 𝒪 ( h k ) in the H 1 -norm and 𝒪 ( h k + 1 ) in the L 2 -norm provided the true solution is sufficiently smooth. Considerations are restricted to domains with polyhedral boundaries. Numerical integration is not taken into account.
