Theoretically and computationally, it is possible to demonstrate that the order of accuracy of a discontinuous Galerkin (DG) solution for linear hyperbolic equations can be improved from order k+1 to 2k+1 through the use of smoothness-increasing accuracy-conserving (SIAC) filtering. However, it is a computationally complex task to perform this in an(More)
Superconvergence of discontinuous Galerkin methods is an area of increasing interest due to the ease with which higher order information can be extracted from the approximation. Cockburn, Luskin, Shu, and Süli showed that by applying a B-spline filter to the approximation at the final time, the order of accuracy can be improved from O(hk+1) to O(h2k+1) in(More)
In (Xu and Shu in J. Sci. Comput. 40:375–390, 2009), a local discontinuous Galerkin (LDG) method for the surface diffusion of graphs was developed and a rigorous proof for its energy stability was given. Numerical simulation results showed the optimal order of accuracy. In this subsequent paper, we concentrate on analyzing a priori error estimates of the(More)
