A discontinuous \(hp\) finite element method for diffusion problems. (English) Zbl 0926.65109
This paper deals with a new type of the discontinuous Galerkin method that is applicable to a broad class of partial differential equations. The proposed method involves a weak imposition of continuity conditions on the solution values and on fluxes across interelement boundaries. The main features are a priori error estimations, convergence proofs, and stability estimates. The method is suited for an adaptive control of the error and can deliver high-order accuracy if the solution is smooth.
