This paper deals with a system of quasi-variational inequalities with noncoercive operators. We prove the existence of a unique weak solution using a lower and upper solutions approach. Furthermore, by means of a Banach's fixed point approach, we also prove that the standard finite element approximation applied to this system is quasi-optimally accurate in… (More)

This paper is devoted to the approximation by a piecewise linear finite element method of a noncoercive system of elliptic quasi-variational inequalities arising in the management of energy production. A quasi-optimal L ∞ error estimate is established, using the concept of subsolution.

In this paper we provide a simple proof to derive L ∞-error estimate for a noncoercive system of quasi-variational inequalities related to the management of energy production. The key idea is a discrete L ∞-stability property owned by the corresponding coercive problem.

We provide a maximum norm analysis of an overlapping Schwarz method on nonmatching grids for second-order elliptic obstacle problem. We consider a domain which is the union of two overlapping subdomains where each subdomain has its own independently generated grid. The grid points on the subdomain boundaries need not match the grid points from the other… (More)

We provide a maximum norm analysis of a finite element Schwarz alternating method for a nonlinear elliptic PDE on two overlapping subdomains with nonmatching grids. We consider a domain which is the union of two overlapping subdomains where each subdomain has its own independently generated grid. The twomeshes beingmutually independent on the overlap… (More)

We deal with the numerical analysis of a system of elliptic quasivariational inequalities (QVIs). Under W 2,p (Ω)-regularity of the continuous solution, a quasi-optimal L ∞-convergence of a piecewise linear finite element method is established, involving a monotone algorithm of Bensoussan-Lions type and standard uniform error estimates known for elliptic… (More)
