Finite element exterior calculus is an approach to the design and understanding of finite element discretizations for a wide variety of systems of partial differential equations. This approach brings to bear tools from differential geometry, algebraic topology, and homological algebra to develop discretizations which are compatible with the geometric,â€¦ (More)

This article reports on the confluence of two streams of research, one emanating from the fields of numerical analysis and scientific computation, the other from topology and geometry. In it we consider the numerical discretization of partial differential equations that are related to differential complexes so that de Rham cohomology and Hodge theory areâ€¦ (More)

We consider the solution of systems of linear algebraic equations which arise from the finite element discretization of variational problems posed in the Hilbert spacesH(div) andH(curl) in three dimensions. We show that if appropriate finite element spaces and appropriate additive or multiplicative Schwarz smoothers are used, then the multigrid V-cycle isâ€¦ (More)

There have been many efforts, dating back four decades, to develop stablemixed finite elements for the stress-displacement formulation of the plane elasticity system. This requires the development of a compatible pair of finite element spaces, one to discretize the space of symmetric tensors in which the stress field is sought, and one to discretize theâ€¦ (More)

Finite element methods for a family of systems of singular perturbation problems of a saddle point structure are discussed. The system is approximately a linear Stokes problem when the perturbation parameter is large, while it degenerates to a mixed formulation of Poissonâ€™s equation as the perturbation parameter tends to zero. It is established, basicallyâ€¦ (More)

In this paper, we construct new finite element methods for the approximation of the equations of linear elasticity in three space dimensions that produce direct approximations to both stresses and displacements. The methods are based on a modified form of the Hellingerâ€“Reissner variational principle that only weakly imposes the symmetry condition on theâ€¦ (More)

We present a family of pairs of finite element spaces for the unaltered Hellingerâ€“Reissner variational principle using polynomial shape functions on a single triangular mesh for stress and displacement. There is a member of the family for each polynomial degree, beginning with degree two for the stress and degree one for the displacement, and each is stableâ€¦ (More)

The development of smoothed projections, constructed by combining the canonical interpolation operators defined from the degrees of freedom with a smoothing operator, has proved to be an effective tool in finite element exterior calculus. The advantage of these operators is that they are L2 bounded projections, and still they commute with the exteriorâ€¦ (More)

This survey paper is based on three talks given by the second author at the London Mathematical Society Durham Symposium on Computational Linear Algebra for Partial Differential Equations in the summer of 2008. The main focus will be on an abstract approach to the construction of preconditioners for symmetric linear systems in a Hilbert space setting.â€¦ (More)

We construct finite element subspaces of the space of symmetric tensors with square-integrable divergence on a three-dimensional domain. These spaces can be used to approximate the stress field in the classical Hellingerâ€“Reissner mixed formulation of the elasticty equations, when standard discontinuous finite element spaces are used to approximate theâ€¦ (More)
