Remarks on a posteriori error estimation for finite element solutions. (English) Zbl 1109.65094
The authors utilize the classical hypercircle method and the lowest order Raviart-Thomas \(H(div)\) element to obtain a posteriori estimates of the \(P_{1}\) finite element solutions for the 2D Poisson equation. A few order estimation methods are also discussed for comparison. Numerical examples are also provided.
