Křižek, M., Neittaanmäki, P. (1984). Superconvergence phenomenon in the finite element method arising from averaging gradients. Numerische Mathematik 45 (1), 105-116. doi:10.1007/BF01379664
Published inNumerische Mathematik
We study a superconvergence phenomenon which can be obtained when solving a 2nd order elliptic problem by the usual linear elements. The averaged gradient is a piecewise linear continuous vector field, the value of which at any nodal point is an average of gradients of linear elements on triangles incident with this nodal point. The convergence rate of the averaged gradient to an exact gradient in theL2-norm can locally be higher even by one than that of the original piecewise constant discrete gradient.

On different finite element methods for approximating the gradient of the solution to the helmholtz equation Haslinger, Jaroslav; Neittaanmäki, Pekka (North-Holland, 1984)We consider the numerical solution of the Helmholtz equation by different finite element methods. In particular, we are interested in finding an efficient method for approximating the gradient of the solution. We first ...
Neittaanmäki, Pekka; Saranen, Jukka (Springer, 1981)A nonconforming mixed finite element method is presented for approximation of ∇w with Δw=f,w| r =0. Convergence of the order∥∇w−uh∥0,Ω=O(h2) is proved, when linear finite elements are used. Only the standard regularity ...
Křižek, Michal; Neittaanmäki, Pekka (North-Holland, 1987)We study a simple superconvergent scheme which recovers the gradient when solving a second-order elliptic problem in the plane by the usual linear elements. The recovered gradient globally approximates the true gradient ...
