Moving finite element methods by use of space-time elements: I. Scalar problems
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 1998

This article deals with moving finite element methods by use of the time-discontinuous Galerkin formulation in combination with oriented space-time meshes. A principle for mesh orientation in space-time based on minimization of the residual, related to adaptive error control via an a posteriori error estimate, is presented. The relation to Miller's moving finite element method is discussed. The article deals with scalar problems; systems will be treated in a companion article.
