About the Project
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.
