A Uniform Convergent Petrov-Galerkin method for a Class of Turning Point Problems

  title={A Uniform Convergent Petrov-Galerkin method for a Class of Turning Point Problems},
  author={Li Feng and Zhongyi Huang},
In this paper, we propose a numerical method for turning point problems in one dimension based on Petrov-Galerkin finite element method (PGFEM). We first give a priori estimate for the turning point problem with a single boundary turning point. Then we use PGFEM to solve it, where test functions are the solutions to piecewise approximate dual problems. We prove that our method has a first-order convergence rate in both L ∞ norm and an energy norm when we select the exact solutions to dual problems…

A priori estimates and analysis of a numerical method for a turning point problem

Bounds are obtained for the derivatives of the solution of a turning point problem. These results suggest a modification of the El-Mistikawy Werle finite difference scheme at the turning point. A

Continuous and numerical analysis of a multiple boundary turning point problem

A singularly perturbed boundary-value problem with a multiple turning point at a boundary is considered. A representation of the solution is given, and it is used in the construction of a uniform

A Tailored Finite Point Method for a Singular Perturbation Problem on an Unbounded Domain

From the numerical results, it is found that the new methods can achieve very high accuracy with very coarse mesh even for very small ε, and the traditional finite element method does not get satisfactory numerical results with the same mesh.

Optimal approximation spaces for discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin finite element methods

This article provides a methodology to drive mesh adaptation to produce optimal meshes for resolving solution features and output functionals which is demonstrated through numerical experiments.

Finite-element methods for singularly perturbed high-order elliptic two-point boundary value problems. II: convection-diffusion-type problems

We consider singularly perturbed high-order elliptic two-point boundary value problems of convection-diffusion type. Under suitable hypotheses, the coercivity of the associated bilinear form is
