Finite volume element method for second order hyperbolic equations
MetadataShow full item record
We discuss a priori error estimates for a semidiscrete piecewise linear finite volume element (FVE) approximation to a second order wave equation in a two-dimensional convex polygonal domain. Since the domain is convex polygonal, a special attention has been paid. to the limited regularity of the exact solution. Optimal error estimates in L-2, H-1 norms and quasioptimal estimates in L-infinity norm are discussed without quadrature and also with numerical quadrature. Numerical results confirm the theoretical order of convergence.
