Edge stabilization for Galerkin approximations of convection-diffusion problems
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2004
In this paper we recall a stabilization technique for finite element methods for convection-diffusion-reaction equations, originally proposed by Douglas and Dupont [Computing Methods in Applied Sciences, Springer-Verlag, Berlin, 1976]. The method uses least square stabilization of the gradient jumps
across element boundaries. We prove that the method is stable in the hyperbolic limit and prove optimal a priori error estimates. We address the question of monotonicity of discrete solutions and present some numerical examples illustrating the theoretical results.
