Abstract
Abstract

This article is devoted to the study of the finite element approximation for a nonlocal nonlinear parabolic problem. Using a linearised Crank-Nicolson Galerkin finite element method for a nonlinear reaction-diffusion equation, we establish the convergence and error bound for the fully discrete scheme. Moreover, important results on exponential decay and vanishing of the solutions in finite time are presented. Finally, some numerical simulations are presented to illustrate our theoretical analysis.
