A posteriori error control for fully discrete crank-nicolson schemes
MetadataShow full item record
We derive residual-based a posteriori error estimates of optimal order for fully discrete approximations for linear parabolic problems. The time discretization uses the Crank- Nicolson method, and the space discretization uses finite element spaces that are allowed to change in time. The main tool in our analysis is the comparison with an appropriate reconstruction of the discrete solution, which is introduced in the present paper. © 2012 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
