Least Squares PGD Mimetic Spectral Element Methods for Systems of First-Order PDEs


Cardiff School of Mathematics

About the Project

The goal of the project will be to develop a least squares PGD mimetic spectral element method for the Stokes problem. There will be theoretical and computational aspects to this strand of the research.

Least-squares spectral element methods for PDEs reformulate them into unconstrained minimisation problems. The exceptional stability of least-squares formulations has led to the widespread use of low-order finite elements in their discretization. Unfortunately, resulting finite element methods are only approximately conservative, which generally leads to violation of fundamental physical properties, such as loss of mass conservation. In many cases this drawback can outweigh the potential advantages of least squares methods. As a result, improving the conservation properties of least-squares methods has attracted significant attention.
