A numerical method for a two-dimensional curl-curl and grad-div problem is studied in this paper. It is based on a discretization using weakly continuous P 1 vector fields and includes two consistency terms involving the jumps of the vector fields across element boundaries. Optimal convergence rates (up to an arbitrary positive) in both the energy norm and(More)
The symmetric interior penalty (SIP) method on graded meshes and its fast solution by multigrid methods are studied in this paper. We obtain quasi-optimal error estimates in both the energy norm and the L 2 norm for the SIP method, and prove uniform convergence of the W-cycle multigrid algorithm for the resulting discrete problem. The performance of these(More)
We study a class of symmetric discontinuous Galerkin methods on graded meshes. Optimal order error estimates are derived in both the energy norm and the L 2 norm, and we establish the uniform convergence of V-cycle, F-cycle and W-cycle multigrid algorithms for the resulting discrete problems. Numerical results that confirm the theoretical results are also(More)
We propose a new numerical approach for two-dimensional Maxwell's equations that is based on the Hodge decomposition for divergence-free vector fields. In this approach an approximate solution for Maxwell's equations can be obtained by solving standard second order scalar elliptic boundary value problems. This new approach is illustrated by a P 1 finite(More)
We provide the first a priori error analysis of a hybridizable dis-continuous Galerkin (HDG) method for solving the vorticity-velocity-pressure formulation of the three-dimensional Stokes equations of incompressible fluid flow. By using a projection-based approach, we prove that, when all the un-knowns use polynomials of degree k ≥ 0, the L 2 − norm of the(More)
We study a hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin method for solving the vorticity-velocity formulation of the Stokes equations in three-space dimensions. We show how to hybridize the method to avoid the construction of the divergence-free approximate velocity spaces, recover an approximation for the pressure and implement the method efficiently. We prove(More)

This paper describes the work principle, structure and drive system design methods for a four degrees of freedom manipulator with strong load capacity, light weight and high rotary accuracy, and carries out a finite element analysis on the key parts of the arm by the software of ANSYS. The simulation results shows that the performances of all the designed(More)
