. We analyze constrained and unconstrained minimization problems on patches of tetrahedra sharing a common vertex with discontinuous piecewise polynomial data of degree p . We show that the discrete minimizers in the spaces of piecewise polynomials of degree p conforming in the H 1 , H ( curl ), or H (div) spaces are as good as the minimizers in these entire (infinite-dimensional) Sobolev spaces, up to a constant that is independent of p . These results are useful in the analysis and design of…

$p$-robust equilibrated flux reconstruction in ${\boldsymbol H}(\mathrm{curl})$ based on local minimizations. Application to a posteriori analysis of the curl-curl problem

This work presents a local construction of H (curl)-conforming piecewise polynomials satisfying a prescribed curl constraint, and designs guaranteed, fully computable, constant-free, and polynomial-degree-robust a posteriori error estimates of the Prager–Synge type for N´ed´elec’s element approximations of the curl–curl problem.

A stable local commuting projector and optimal $hp$ approximation estimates in ${\boldsymbol H}(\mathrm{curl})$

We design an operator from the infinite-dimensional Sobolev space H (curl) to its finite-dimensional subspace formed by the N´ed´elec piecewise polynomials on a tetrahedral mesh that has the following



Stable broken H(curl) polynomial extensions and p-robust a posteriori error estimates by broken patchwise equilibration for the curl-curl problem

Stability in the sense that the minimizers over piecewise polynomial spaces with prescribed tangential component jumps across faces and prescribed piecewise curl in elements are subordinate in the broken energy norm to the minimizer over the broken patchwise equilibration is shown.

Polynomial-degree-robust H(curl)-stability of discrete minimization in a tetrahedron

We prove that the minimizer in the Nedelec polynomial space of some degree p ≥ 0 of a discrete minimization problem performs as well as the continuous minimizer in H(curl), up to a constant that is

Stable broken H1 and H(div) polynomial extensions for polynomial-degree-robust potential and flux reconstruction in three space dimensions

Stability is shown in the sense that the minimizer over piecewise polynomial spaces of the same degree as the data are subordinate in the broken energy norm to the minimizers over the whole broken H and H(div) spaces.

Equivalence of local-best and global-best approximations in H(curl)

We derive results on equivalence of piecewise polynomial approximations of a given function in the Sobolev space H(curl). We namely show that the global-best approximation of a given H(curl) function

The findings from this work are applied to derive optimal a priori  $hp$-error estimates for mixed and least-squares finite element methods applied to a model diffusion problem.

Guaranteed, Locally Space-Time Efficient, and Polynomial-Degree Robust a Posteriori Error Estimates for High-Order Discretizations of Parabolic Problems

It is shown that this norm, which is key for local space-time efficiency, is globally equivalent to the $L^2(H^1)\cap H^1(H^{-1})$-norm of the error, with polynomial-degree robust constants.

A novel a posteriori error estimator for conforming finite element discretizations of two- and three-dimensional Helmholtz problems based on an equilibrated flux that is computed by solving patchwise mixed finite element problems is proposed.

We consider energy norm a posteriori error analysis of conforming finite element approximations of singularly perturbed reaction-diffusion problems on simplicial meshes in arbitrary space dimension.

Estimates of flux a posteriori error estimates for conforming, nonconforming, discontinuous Galerkin, and mixed finite element discretizations of the two-dimensional Poisson problem are guaranteed, locally computable, locally efficient, and robust with respect to polynomial degree.

Polynomial extension operators. Part III

The existence of a polynomial extension operator in the Sobolev space H(div) is proven constructively and the main application is the existence of commuting projectors with good hp-approximation properties.
