A new finite element approach for problems containing small geometric details


Hackbusch, W; Sauter, S (1998). A new finite element approach for problems containing small geometric details. Archivum Mathematicum, 34(1):105-117.

Abstract

In this paper a new finite element approach is presented which allows the discretization of PDEs on domains containing small micro-structures with extremely few degrees of freedom. The applications of these so-called {\it Composite Finite Elements }are two-fold. They allow the efficient use of multi-grid methods to problems on complicated domains where, otherwise, it is not possible to obtain very coarse discretizations with standard finite elements. Furthermore, they provide a tool for discrete homogenization of PDEs without requiring periodicity of the data.
