Goal-oriented adaptivity for a conforming residual minimization method in a dual discontinuous Galerkin norm
MetadataShow full item record
We propose a goal-oriented mesh-adaptive algorithm for a finite element method stabilized via residual minimization on dual discontinuous-Galerkin norms. By solving a saddle-point problem, this residual minimization delivers a stable continuous approximation to the solution on each mesh instance and a residual projection onto a broken polynomial space, which is a robust error estimator to minimize the discrete energy norm via automatic mesh refinement. In this work, we propose and analyze a goal-oriented adaptive algorithm for this stable residual minimization. We solve the primal and adjoint problems considering the same saddle-point formulation and different right-hand sides. By solving a third stable problem, we obtain two efficient error estimates to guide goal oriented adaptivity. We illustrate the performance of this goal-oriented adaptive strategy on advection-diffusion reaction problems.
