L2-estimates for the DG IIPG-0 scheme



We discuss the optimality in L2 of a variant of the Incomplete Discontinuous Galerkin Interior Penalty method (IIPG) for second order linear elliptic problems. We prove optimal estimate, in two and three dimensions, for the lowest order case under suitable regularity assumptions on the data and on the mesh. We also provide numerical evidence, in one dimension, of the necessity of the regularity assumptions. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Numer Methods Partial Differential Eq 2012
