A posteriori error estimates for discontinuous Galerkin methods on polygonal and polyhedral meshes

Abstract

We present a new residual-type energy-norm a posteriori error analysis for interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin (dG) methods for linear elliptic problems. The new error bounds are also applicable to dG methods on meshes consisting of elements with very general polygonal/polyhedral shapes. The case of simplicial and/or box-type elements is included in the analysis as a special case. In particular, for the upper bounds, arbitrary number of very small faces are allowed on each polygonal/polyhedral element, as long as certain mild shape regularity assumptions are satisfied. As a corollary, the present analysis generalizes known a posteriori error bounds for dG methods, allowing in particular for meshes with arbitrary number of irregular hanging nodes per element. The proof hinges on a new conforming recovery strategy in conjunction with a Helmholtz decomposition formula. The resulting a posteriori error bound involves jumps on the tangential derivatives along elemental faces. Local lower bounds are also proven for a number of practical cases. Numerical experiments is also presented, highlighting the practical value of the derived a posteriori error bounds as error estimators.
