A posteriori error estimates are derived for the finite element method presented in Part I. These estimates are proven to have the property that the effectivity index 0 = (error estimate/true error) converges to one as the maximum mesh size goes to zero. An adaptive mesh refinement strategy is based on equilibriating local error indicators whose sum… (More)
