In this article we obtain an optimal best approximation type result for fully discrete approximations of the transient Stokes problem. For the time discretization we use the discontinuous Galerkin method and for the spatial discretization we use standard finite elements for the Stokes problem satisfying the discrete inf-sup condition. The analysis uses the technique of discrete maximal parabolic regularity. The results require only natural assumptions on the data and do not assume any… Expand


Global and Interior Pointwise best Approximation Results for the Gradient of Galerkin Solutions for Parabolic Problems
The method of the proof differs from the established fully discrete error estimate techniques and uses only elliptic results and discrete maximal parabolic regularity for discontinuous Galerkin methods established by the authors in \cite{LeykekhmanD_VexlerB_2016b}. Expand
Pointwise Best Approximation Results for Galerkin Finite Element Solutions of Parabolic Problems
An interior best approximation property is established of fully discrete Galerkin finite element solutions of second order parabolic problems on convex polygonal and polyhedral domains in the L^\infty norm that shows a more local behavior of the error at a given point. Expand

Superconvergence of the gradient in piecewise linear finite-element approximation to a parabolic problem
Some recent results concerning maximum-norm superconvergence of the gradient in piecewise linear finite-element approximations of an elliptic problem are carried over to a parabolic problem. Both theExpand
A posteriori error estimates by recovered gradients in parabolic finite element equations
This paper considers a posteriori error estimates by averaged gradients in second order parabolic problems. Fully discrete schemes are treated. The theory from the elliptic case as to when suchExpand
Pressure-robust error estimate of optimal order for the Stokes equations: domains with re-entrant edges and anisotropic mesh grading
The velocity solution of the incompressible Stokes equations is not affected by changes of the right hand side data in form of gradient fields. Most mixed methods do not replicate this property inExpand
A Priori Error Estimates for Finite Element Discretizations of Parabolic Optimization Problems with Pointwise State Constraints in Time
An optimal control problem which is governed by a linear parabolic equation and is subject to state constraints pointwise in time is considered and a new regularity result is derived for the optimal control. Expand
