Discontinuous Galerkin finite element approximation of quasilinear elliptic boundary value problems II: strongly monotone quasi-Newtonian flows

By Scott Congreve, Paul Houston, Endre Süli and Thomas P. Wihler

Abstract

In this article we develop both the a priori and a posteriori error analysis of hp– version interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin finite element methods for strongly monotone quasi-Newtonian fluid flows in a bounded Lipschitz domain Ω ⊂ R^d, d = 2, 3. In the latter case, computable upper and lower bounds on the error are derived in terms of a natural energy norm which are explicit in the local mesh size and local polynomial degree of the approximating finite element method. A series of numerical experiments illustrate the performance of the proposed a posteriori error indicators within an automatic hp–adaptive refinement algorithm
