On residual-based a posteriori error estimation in hp-FEM. (English) Zbl 0991.65111
The Clément/Scott-Zhang interpolation operator is generalized to the hp-context and using this approach a new method of so-called polynomial inverse estimates is suggested. Using this method a family \(\eta_\alpha\), \(\alpha\in\langle 0,1\rangle\) of residual based error indicators for the hp-version of the finite element method (FEM) is presented and analyzed. Upper and lower bounds for these error indicators \(\eta_\alpha\) are estabilished and the hp-adaptive strategy is proposed. Some numerical examples for the illustration of the performance of error indicators and the adaptive strategy are also presented.
