A Flexible Galerkin Finite Element Method with an A Posteriori Discontinuous Finite Element Error Estimation for Hyperbolic Problems
A Flexible Galerkin Finite Element Method (FGM) is a hybrid class of finite element methods that combine the usual continuous Galerkin method with the now popular discontinuous Galerkin method (DGM). A detailed description of the formulation of the FGM on a hyperbolic partial differential equation, as well as the data structures used in the FGM algorithm is presented. Some hp-convergence results and computational cost are included. Additionally, an a posteriori error estimate for the DGM applied to a two-dimensional hyperbolic partial differential equation is constructed. Several examples, both linear and nonlinear, indicating the effectiveness of the error estimate are included.
