An Adaptive Savitsky-Golay Filter for Smoothing Finite Element Computation

  title={An Adaptive Savitsky-Golay Filter for Smoothing Finite Element Computation},
  author={Teodoro Collin and G. Kindlmann and L. R. Scott},
The smoothing technique of Savitzky and Golay is extended to data defined on multidimensional meshes. A smoothness-increasing accuracy-conserving (SIAC) filter is defined that is suitable for use with finite-element computation.

Towards a Unified Finite Element Method for the Stokes Equations
We present an algorithm for solving the Stokes system based on the Scott--Vogelius technique together with the iterated penalty method. We show that by projecting the Scott--Vogelius pressure onto ...
Enhanced accuracy by post-processing for finite element methods for hyperbolic equations
This work considers the enhancement of accuracy, by means of a simple post-processing technique, for finite element approximations to transient hyperbolic equations, and shows results displaying the sharpness of the estimates. Expand
Smoothness-Increasing Accuracy-Conserving (SIAC) filters for derivative approximations of discontinuous Galerkin (DG) solutions over nonuniform meshes and near boundaries
It is proved that with the position-dependent derivative filters, the filtered solutions can obtain a better accuracy rate compared to the original discontinuous Galerkin approximation with arbitrary derivative orders over nonuniform meshes. Expand
High order local approximations to derivatives in the finite element method
Consider the approximation of the solution u of an elliptic boundary value problem by means of a finite element Galerkin method of order r, so that the approximate solution uh satisfies uh u = O(hr).Expand
Local derivative post-processing for the discontinuous Galerkin method
The results show that the approximations to the @ath-derivative of the exact solution of linear, multidimensional symmetric hyperbolic systems obtained by the discontinuous Galerkin method with polynomials of degree k converge with order 2k+1 regardless of the order |@a| of the derivative. Expand

Code Generation for Generally Mapped Finite Elements
This work describes how to implement very general finite-element transformations in FInAT and hence into the Firedrake finite- element system, and evaluates the new elements, finding that new elements give smooth solutions at a mild increase in cost over standard Lagrange elements. Expand
DOLFIN: Automated finite element computing
A library aimed at automating the solution of partial differential equations using the finite element method, from which low-level code is automatically generated, compiled and seamlessly integrated with efficient implementations of computational meshes and high-performance linear algebra. Expand
On the Treatment of Field Quantities and Elemental Continuity in FEM Solutions
It is shown how the use of the recently proposed line-SIAC filter provides a way of handling elemental continuity issues in an accuracy-conserving manner with the added benefit of casting the data in a smooth context even if the representation is element discontinuous. Expand
Least-squares spline resampling to a hexagonal lattice
A spline model for different orders is introduced, both for orthogonal and hexagonal lattices, and an expression for a least-squares approximation is derived which can be applied to convolution-based resampling. Expand
