Workshop A5 - Multiresolution and Adaptivity in Numerical PDEs

December 11, 14:30 ~ 15:10 - Room B22

A posteriori error estimation and adaptivity in the maximum norm

Alan Demlow

Texas A&M University, USA   -

In this talk I will discuss recent progress in constructing adaptive algorithms for controlling errors in the maximum norm. The main focus of the talk will be the construction of robust a posteriori error estimators for singularly perturbed elliptic reaction-diffusion problems. Time permitting, I may also discuss the sharpness of logarithmic factors that typically arise in maximum norm a posteriori estimates.

Joint work with Natalia Kopteva (University of Limerick).
