We study a finite element approximation of the initial-boundary value problem of the 3D incompressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) system under smooth domains and data. We first establish several important regularities and a priori estimates for the velocity, pressure and magnetic field (u , p , B ) of the MHD system under the assumption that ∇u ∈ L 4 (0,T ;L 2 (Ω)3 × 3 ) and ∇ × B ∈ L 4 (0,T ;L 2 (Ω)3 ). Then we formulate a finite element approximation of the MHD flow. Finally, we derive the…

Finite element approximation of the nonstationary Navier-Stokes problem. I : Regularity of solutions and second-order error estimates for spatial discretization
TLDR
Second-order error estimates are proven for spatial discretization, using conforming or nonconforming elements, and indicate a fluid-like behavior of the approximations, even in the case of large data, so long as the solution remains regular.
