Sobolev Regularity Estimation for hp-Adaptive Finite Element Methods

Houston, P. and Senior, Bill and Suli, Endre (2002) Sobolev Regularity Estimation for hp-Adaptive Finite Element Methods. Technical Report. Unspecified. (Submitted)



In this paper we develop an algorithm for estimating the local Sobolev regularity index of a given function by monitoring the decay rate of its Legendre expansion coefficients. On the basis of these local regularities, we design and implement an hp-adaptive finite element method based on employing discontinuous piecewise polynomials, for the approximation of nonlinear systems of hyperbolic conservation laws. The performance of the proposed adaptive strategy is demonstrated numerically.
