𝐴 - 𝑃𝑂𝑆𝑇𝐸𝑅𝐼𝑂𝑅𝐼 error estimates for linear exterior problems 𝑉𝐼𝐴 mixed-FEM and DtN mappings

Mauricio A. Barrientos, Gabriel N. Gatica, Matthias Maischak (2002)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

In this paper we combine the dual-mixed finite element method with a Dirichlet-to-Neumann mapping (given in terms of a boundary integral operator) to solve linear exterior transmission problems in the plane. As a model we consider a second order elliptic equation in divergence form coupled with the Laplace equation in the exterior unbounded region. We show that the resulting mixed variational formulation and an associated discrete scheme using Raviart-Thomas spaces are well posed, and derive the...

A C1-P2 finite element without nodal basis

Shangyou Zhang (2008)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis


A new finite element, which is continuously differentiable, but only piecewise quadratic polynomials on a type of uniform triangulations, is introduced. We construct a local basis which does not involve nodal values nor derivatives. Different from the traditional finite elements, we have to construct a special, averaging operator which is stable and preserves quadratic polynomials. We show the optimal order of approximation of the finite element in interpolation, and in solving the biharmonic...

A finite volume method for the Laplace equation on almost arbitrary two-dimensional grids

Komla Domelevo, Pascal Omnes (2005)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

We present a finite volume method based on the integration of the Laplace equation on both the cells of a primal almost arbitrary two-dimensional mesh and those of a dual mesh obtained by joining the centers of the cells of the primal mesh. The key ingredient is the definition of discrete gradient and divergence operators verifying a discrete Green formula. This method generalizes an existing finite volume method that requires “Voronoi-type” meshes. We show the equivalence of this finite volume...

A posteriori error estimates for elliptic problems with Dirac measure terms in weighted spaces

Juan Pablo Agnelli, Eduardo M. Garau, Pedro Morin (2014)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

In this article we develop a posteriori error estimates for second order linear elliptic problems with point sources in two- and three-dimensional domains. We prove a global upper bound and a local lower bound for the error measured in a weighted Sobolev space. The weight considered is a (positive) power of the distance to the support of the Dirac delta source term, and belongs to the Muckenhoupt’s class A2. The theory hinges on local approximation properties of either Clément or Scott–Zhang interpolation...

A Posteriori Error Estimates on Stars for Convection Diffusion Problem

B. Achchab, A. Agouzal, K. Bouihat (2010)

Mathematical Modelling of Natural Phenomena

In this paper, a new a posteriori error estimator for nonconforming convection diffusion approximation problem, which relies on the small discrete problems solution in stars, has been established. It is equivalent to the energy error up to data oscillation without any saturation assumption nor comparison with residual estimator

A quasi-dual Lagrange multiplier space for serendipity mortar finite elements in 3D

Bishnu P. Lamichhane, Barbara I. Wohlmuth (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

Domain decomposition techniques provide a flexible tool for the numerical approximation of partial differential equations. Here, we consider mortar techniques for quadratic finite elements in 3D with different Lagrange multiplier spaces. In particular, we focus on Lagrange multiplier spaces which yield optimal discretization schemes and a locally supported basis for the associated constrained mortar spaces in case of hexahedral triangulations. As a result, standard efficient iterative solvers...

A residual based a posteriori error estimator for an augmented mixed finite element method in linear elasticity

Tomás P. Barrios, Gabriel N. Gatica, María González, Norbert Heuer (2006)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

In this paper we develop a residual based a posteriori error analysis for an augmented mixed finite element method applied to the problem of linear elasticity in the plane. More precisely, we derive a reliable and efficient a posteriori error estimator for the case of pure Dirichlet boundary conditions. In addition, several numerical experiments confirming the theoretical properties of the estimator, and illustrating the capability of the corresponding adaptive algorithm to localize the singularities...
