On Friedrichs constant and Horgan-Payne angle for LBB condition

By Monique Dauge, Christine Bernardi, Martin Costabel and Vivette Girault


In dimension 2, the Horgan-Payne angle serves to construct a lower bound for the inf-sup constant of the divergence arising in the so-called LBB condition. This lower bound is equivalent to an upper bound for the Friedrichs constant. Explicit upper bounds for the latter constant can be found using a polar parametrization of the boundary. Revisiting carefully the original paper which establishes this strategy, we found out that some proofs need clarification, and some statements, replacement
