### A parameter-free smoothness indicator for high-resolution finite element schemes

This paper presents a postprocessing technique for estimating the local regularity of numerical solutions in high-resolution finite element schemes. A derivative of degree p ≥ 0 is considered to be smooth if a discontinuous linear reconstruction does not create new maxima or minima. The intended use of this criterion is the identification of smooth cells in the context of p-adaptation or selective flux limiting. As a model problem, we consider a 2D convection equation discretized with bilinear finite...
