Two-sided a posteriori error estimates for mixed formulations of elliptic problems


Repin, S; Sauter, S; Smolianski, A (2007). Two-sided a posteriori error estimates for mixed formulations of elliptic problems. SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis, 45(3):928-945.

Abstract

The present work is devoted to the a posteriori error estimation for mixed approximations of linear self-adjoint elliptic problems. New guaranteed upper and lower bounds for the error measured in the natural product norm are derived, and individual sharp upper bounds are obtained for approximation errors in each of the physical variables. All estimates are reliable and valid for any approximate solution from the class of admissible functions. The estimates contain only global constants depending solely on the domain geometry and the given operators. Moreover, it is shown that, after an appropriate scaling of the coordinates and the equation, the ratio of the upper and lower bounds for the error in the product norm never exceeds 3. The possible methods of finding the approximate mixed solution in the class of admissible functions are discussed. The estimates are computationally very cheap and can also be used for the indication of the local error distribution. As applications, the diffusion problem as well as the problem of linear elasticity are considered.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
