The AL Basis for the solution of elliptic problems in heterogeneous media - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Grasedyk, L; Greff, I; Sauter, S (2012). The AL Basis for the solution of elliptic problems in heterogeneous media. Multiscale Modeling & Simulation, 10(1):245-258.

Abstract

In this paper, we will show that, for elliptic problems in heterogeneous media, there exists a local ( generalized) finite element basis (AL basis) consisting of O((log 1/H)(d+1) basis functions per nodal point such that the convergence rates of the classical finite element method for Poisson- type problems are preserved. Here H denotes the mesh width of the finite element mesh and d is the spatial dimension. We provide several numerical examples beyond our theory, where even O( 1) basis functions per nodal point are sufficient to preserve the convergence rates.

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.
