hp-adaptive discontinuous Galerkin methods for non-stationary convection-diffusion problems.

Cangiani, A. and Georgoulis, E. H. and Giani, S. and Metcalfe, S. (2019) 'hp-adaptive discontinuous Galerkin methods for non-stationary convection-diffusion problems.', Computers and mathematics with applications., 78 (9). pp. 3090-3104.


An a posteriori error estimator for the error in the (L2(H1)+L1(L2))-type norm for an interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin (dG) spatial discretisation and backward Euler temporal discretisation of linear non-stationary convection-diusion initial/boundary value problems is derived, allowing for anisotropic elements. The proposed error estimator is used to drive an hp-space-time adaptive algorithm wherein directional mesh renement is employed to give rise to highly anisotropic elements able to accurately capture layers. The performance of the hp-space-time adaptive algorithm is assessed via a number of standard test problems characterised by sharp and/or moving layers.
