# A fully-discrete virtual element method for the nonstationary Boussinesq equations

@article{Veiga2022AFV, title={A fully-discrete virtual element method for the nonstationary Boussinesq equations}, author={Lourencco Beirao da Veiga and David Mora and Alberth Silgado}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2022}, volume={abs/2209.12311} }

In the present work we propose and analyze a fully coupled virtual element method of high order for solving the two dimensional nonstationary Boussinesq system in terms of the stream-function and temperature ﬁelds. The discretization for the spatial variables is based on the coupling C 1 - and C 0 -conforming virtual element approaches, while a backward Euler scheme is employed for the temporal variable. Well-posedness and unconditional stability of the fully-discrete problem is provided…
