The conforming finite element Galerkin method is applied to discretise in the spatial direction for a class of strongly nonlinear parabolic problems. Using elliptic projection of the associated linearised stationary problem with Gronwall type result, optimal error estimates are derived, when piecewise polynomials of degree r ≥ 1 are used, which improve upon earlier results of Axelsson [Numer. Math. 28 (1977), pp. 1-14] requiring for 2d r ≥ 2 and for 3d r ≥ 3. Based on quasi-projection technique… Expand

A priori error estimates of expanded mixed FEM for Kirchhoff type parabolic equation
For a nonlinear nonlocal parabolic problem containing the elastic energy coefficients, an expanded mixed finite element method using lowest order RT spaces is discussed and existence of a unique fully discrete numerical solution is proved by using a variant of Brouwer’s fixed point theorem. Expand
