\(hp\)-version interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin finite element methods on anisotropic meshes. (English) Zbl 1102.65112
The \(hp\)-version of the interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin finite element method (\(hp\)-DGFEM) for linear second-order elliptic reaction-diffusion-advection equations is considered. The error analysis of the \(hp\)-DGFEM is extended to the case when anisotropic (shape-irregular) elements and anisotropic polynomial degrees are used.
For this purpose, results of P. Houston, C. Schwab and E. Süli [SIAM J. Numer. Anal. 39, 2133–2163 (2002; Zbl 1015.65067)] are extended to the anisotropic case. The choice for a user-defined discontinuity penalization parameter is not so easy on grids with anisotropic elements.
