The development of numerical methods for solving the Helmholtz equation, which behaves robustly with respect to the wave number, is a topic of vivid research. It was observed that the solution of the Galerkin finite element method (FEM) differs significantly from the best approximation with increasing wave number. Many attempts have been presented in the literature to eliminate this lack of robustness by various modifications of the classical Galerkin FEM.
However, we will prove that, in two and more space dimensions, it is impossible to eliminate this so-called pollution effect. Furthermore, we will present a generalized FEM in one dimension which behaves robustly with respect to the wave number
