Finite element methods for some elliptic fourth order singular perturbation problems are discussed. We show that if such problems are discretized by the nonconforming Morley method, in a regime close to second order elliptic equations, then the error deteriorates. In fact, a counter example is given to show that the Morley method diverges for the reduced(More)
In this paper we show that standard preconditioners for parabolic PDEs discretized by implicit Euler or Crank–Nicolson schemes can be reused for higher–order fully implicit Runge–Kutta time discretization schemes. We prove that the suggested block diagonal preconditioners are order–optimal for A–stable and irreducible Runge–Kutta schemes with invertible(More)

Numerical identification of diffusion parameters in a nonlinear convection–diffusion equation is studied. This partial differential equation arises as the saturation equation in the fractional flow formulation of the two–phase porous media flow equations. The forward problem is discretized with the finite difference method, and the identification problem is(More)

We consider numerical identification of the piecewise constant permeability function in a nonlinear parabolic equation, with the augmented Lagrangian method. By studying this problem, we aim at also gaining some insight into the potential ability of the augmented Lagrangian method to handle permeability estimation within the full two-phase porous-media flow(More)
