A unified error analysis of HDG methods for the static Maxwell equations

  title={A unified error analysis of HDG methods for the static Maxwell equations},
  author={Shukai Du and Francisco-Javier Sayas},
We propose a framework that allows us to analyze different variants of HDG methods for the static Maxwell equations using one simple analysis. It reduces all the work to the construction of projections that best fit the structures of the approximation spaces. As applications, we analyze four variants of HDG methods (denoted by B, H, B+, H+), where two of them are known (variants H, B+) and the other two are new (variants H+, B). Under certain regularity assumption, we show that all the four…

HDG and CG methods for the Indefinite Time-Harmonic Maxwell's Equations under minimal regularity
This paper uses CG elements to approximate the Lagrange multiplier used to enforce the divergence condition and gets optimal convergence estimates for the HGD-CG approximation when the electromagnetic coefficients are {\em piecewise} smooth.


New analytical tools for HDG in elasticity, with applications to elastodynamics
This work presents some new analytical tools for the error analysis of hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) method for linear elasticity, and presents a tailored projection for the Lehrenfeld-Schoberl type HDG ( HDG+ for simplicity) methods.
A Hybrid High-Order method for Leray-Lions elliptic equations on general meshes
A Hybrid High-Order (HHO) method for steady non-linear Leray–Lions problems is developed and analyzed by combining two key ingredients devised at the local level: a gradient reconstruction and a high-order stabilization term that generalizes the one originally introduced in the linear case.
Hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin methods for the time-harmonic Maxwell's equations
A projection-based error analysis of HDG methods
A new technique for the error analysis of hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) methods relies on the use of a new projection whose design is inspired by the form of the numerical traces of the methods, which renders the analysis of the projections of the discretization errors simple and concise.
Analysis of a hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin method for the Maxwell operator
The HDG method is shown to be stable and convergence in an optimal order for both high and low regularity cases, and under a more general regularity requirement.

From the point of view of degrees of freedom of the globally coupled unknown: numerical trace, this HDG method achieves superconvergence for the electric field without postprocessing.
Unified Hybridization of Discontinuous Galerkin, Mixed, and Continuous Galerkin Methods for Second Order Elliptic Problems
A unifying framework for hybridization of finite element methods for second order elliptic problems is introduced, thanks to which it is possible to see how to devise novel methods displaying very localized and simple mortaring techniques, as well as methods permitting an even further reduction of the number of globally coupled degrees of freedom.
