. In this paper we present an immersed weak Galerkin method for solving second-order elliptic interface problems on polygonal meshes, where the meshes do not need to be aligned with the interface. The discrete space consists of constants on each edge and broken linear polynomials satisfying the interface conditions in each element. For triangular meshes, such broken linear plynomials coincide with the basis functions in immersed finite element methods [26]. We establish some approximation…

A weak Galerkin mixed finite element method for second order elliptic problems

The WG-MFEM is capable of providing very accurate numerical approximations for both the primary and flux variables and allowing the use of discontinuous approximating functions on arbitrary shape of polygons/polyhedra makes the method highly flexible in practical computation.

An Arbitrary-Order and Compact-Stencil Discretization of Diffusion on General Meshes Based on Local Reconstruction Operators

An arbitrary-order primal method for diffusion problems on general polyhedral meshes based on a local (elementwise) discrete gradient reconstruction operator that is proved to optimally converge in the energy norm and in the L2-norm of the potential for smooth solutions.

A weak Galerkin finite element method for the stokes equations

A weak Galerkin (WG) finite element method for the Stokes equations in the primal velocity-pressure formulation is introduced, equipped with stable finite elements consisting of usual polynomials of degree k≥1 for the velocity and polynoms of degrees k−1 forThe pressure, both are discontinuous.
