A-Posteriori Error Estimates for Uniform p-Version Finite Element Methods in Square

  • Jianwei Zhou (a1), Danping Yang (a2) and Yujie Liu (a3)

In this work, the a-posteriori error indicator with an explicit formula for p-version finite element methods in square is investigated, and its reliable and efficient properties are deduced. Especially, this a-posteriori error indicator is determined by the right hand itemof themodel. We reformulate this a-posteriori error indicator with finite coefficients, which can be easily calculated during applications.
