An Adaptive Multi-level method for Convection Diffusion Problems

Martine Marion, Adeline Mollard (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis


In this article we introduce an adaptive multi-level method in space and time for convection diffusion problems. The scheme is based on a multi-level spatial splitting and the use of different time-steps. The temporal discretization relies on the characteristics method. We derive an error estimate and design a corresponding adaptive algorithm. The efficiency of the multi-level method is illustrated by numerical experiments, in particular for a convection-dominated problem. ...

A posteriori error estimates for a nonconforming finite element discretization of the heat equation

Serge Nicaise, Nadir Soualem (2005)

The paper presents an a posteriori error estimator for a (piecewise linear) nonconforming finite element approximation of the heat equation in d , d = 2 or 3, using backward Euler’s scheme. For this discretization, we derive a residual indicator, which use a spatial residual indicator based on the jumps of normal and tangential derivatives of the nonconforming approximation and a time residual indicator based on the jump of broken gradients at each time step. Lower and upper bounds form the...
